We use the word dapper to refer to a man with a neat and clean appearance.
Which word(s) can we use to describe a woman that has similar characteristics?

There are a bunch of possibilities at http://thesaurus.com/browse/dapper (not all are suitable synonyms). Scanning through them quickly, the only one that stands out as specific to women is "chic". This doesn't mean exactly the same as "dapper", though. In fact, "dapper" seems to have certain connotations that I find hard to apply to women at all.

Failing that, any of the generic terms like "smart", "well dressed", "smartly dressed", "neatly dressed" etc. will work just as well for women as for men.

Without looking at the thesaurus mentioned above, I'd go with "stylish."

Good idea, I'm not sure why I didn't notice that one....
