The word "lovely" means "nice" or "beautiful". But it sounds more strongly positive than "nice".
Things that can be called "lovely" include:
- The weather.
What a lovely day!
- A person.
Don't you look lovely!
- Clothes, household decorations, and other pretty objects.
I found a lovely bedspread on sale at Macy's.
"Lovely" is often used by older and more conservative women.
