Hi.

I wonder if "She's a very snazzy dresser" and "She always dresses fashionably" are both good to describe a person who dresses at the front of the time, in fashion, up-to-date.

Thanks a lot

    Yes.

    They don't mean exactly the same however. "Snazzy" suggests dressing in an attention-grabbing way, at least a little. "Fashionably" could refer to a more understated style too.

    I think snazzy is probably outdated in the U.S., despite what the ngrams say.

    As a serious comment it sounds like something from my grandparents' generation, although sometimes it's said semi-humorously.
