Word to the Wise: Prink

To “prink” (PRINGK) – possibly from the Dutch for “to adorn oneself” – is to dress or groom oneself with elaborate care or vanity.

Example (as used by Raffaella Barker in the Daily Telegraph): “Tara has supermodel legs and is already getting used to being prinked and coiffed as she prepares for her first beauty contest in the autumn.”
