'fashionable' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'ways lead to his undoing' is the wordplay.
'ways' becomes 'sw' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).

'undoing' is an anagram indicator.
'his' is an anagram of 'ish'.

(Other definitions for swish that I've seen before include "Classy" , "Elegant" , "Smart; stylish" , "Stylish (sl.)" , "Extravagant" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
