Antonyms: crude, unsophisticated

Tips: Suave is derived from the Latin suavis, which means "agreeable." Think of a person who is charming and agreeable. Suave can sometimes be used negatively and ironically to describe someone who is arrogant in his charm and sophistication, and therefore, somewhat "cheesy."
