English term or phrase: Sexy
You look really sexy today!
Japanese translation:セクシー
Explanation:
The "traditional" Japanese for this is 色っぽい (iroppoi), but the loan-word セクシー (sekushii) is most commonly used, especially in the context above: 今日、すごいセクシーだね (kyou, sugoi sekushii da ne).

I've also seen it spelled セックシー (sekkushii), but the above spelling is by far more common.
