Unprepossessing

Unprepossessing

<un-ree-poh-zess-ing>

unattractive; ugly; homely;

Not good looking or unpleasant to look at.

The unprepossessing dog was so lovable that it was beautiful anyway.

Memory trick: pre reminds of pretty- possessing reminds of having.
Un pretty and not having beauty.

Used at work:
Your report is unprepossessing. You need to pretty it up with clip-art.
