Hot or Not: The Pretty Woman Dress

Trending: A dress that’s racy, figure-flaunting, and…vintage? Yep! What some say is the season’s hottest new dress isn’t actually new after all…

Is this the newest "it" dress? Tripp NYC via Nasty Gal.

Look familiar? It should! This particular piece is a nod to the iconic dress donned by Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.

As we’ve discussed here on the blog, peek-a-boo apparel is a super hot trend, and many ladies love showing a little extra skin in the warmer months. The commercial varieties are selling like hotcakes sold out online at retailers like Asos and Nasty Gal, and in what appears to be an attempt at making the style more wearable, the modern-day styles tend to come in solid colors (sans tie-dye) and feature both slightly smaller cut-outs and slightly longer hemlines.

Soooo, I love fashion. And I love Pretty Woman. But! Have we forgotten that this dress is emulating the wardrobe of a..erm… lady of the night? It is! It’s short, tight, and has giant cut-outs. Even without a visible bra or thigh-high boots and with all the layering pieces I own I don’t think I’d be able to make this frock demure. I kinda love how it looks, though! I might wear it as a halloween costume, but this probably isn’t a piece I would invest in for the long haul. Too hot!

What do you think, dolls? Is the Pretty Woman dress hot or not? Cast your vote below!
