Origin of quaintrelle

  • From the term quaint. Historically in the 1810’s, females with dandy attributes where called dandyess or dandizettes. As dandy became a descriptor applied exclusively to men starting in the latter half of the 19th century, quaintrelle then became the word applied to females.
