Crossword Genius

Striking and elegant but for pants (13)


I believe the answer is:


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

'elegant but for pants' is the wordplay.
'pants' indicates an anagram (UK informal term for 'nonsense' or 'rubbish').
'elegantbutfor' is an anagram of 'UNFORGETTABLE'.

'and' is the link.

(Other definitions for unforgettable that I've seen before include "Noteworthy" , "Nat King Cole number" , "Always remaining in the mind" , "Striking" , "stuck in my brain?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
