Yes, there have always been women who like to dress this way, even when it wasn't "fashionable." It's a look few if any women can do, although I'd say Dolly Parton is the queen of trashy dressing ("It takes a lot of money to look this trashy!"). But most moms who are accompanying their young children are NOT dressed like a hooker. That's why Kate's appearance is such a disconnect: she's trying way too hard to look like their trashy older sister.I have to say that, generally speaking, dressing like a slut is currently very much in vogue. I see it everywhere on both young women and "women of a certain age."
