    hooker chic?

    Pop stars parade themselves like porn stars. Chain stores stock hooker chic for girls barely out of nappies.
    Parents are encouraged to abrogate their responsibilities to teachers and soppy social workers.
    Hi,

    What does " hooker chic" mean? Thanks!

    I suppose it's a fashion style. 'hooker' is another word for prostitute (I think American colloquial?). The young girls dress like prostitutes, or the clothes the chain stores stock look like prostitutes' clothes.

    Re: hooker chic?

    You do understand that 'chic' has no connection to 'chick'?
    'chic' is a French word which means 'stylishly fashionable'.
    In effect it is saying, what the up-to-date prostitute is wearing these days.
    To say someone dresses like a prostitute is not a compliment, yet very young girls seem to be buying and wearing such clothes.
