American Apparel Shiny Tube Dress: Love It or Hate It?

I had to do a double take on this American Apparel Shiny Too Short Tube Dress ($36). The cut is super short and the glittery nylon reminds me of a Las Vegas stripper. Seriously peeps, I need to know if you like this dress.

I put undecided because on its own, yes it is slutty. But with other stuff, maybe worn as a top it might look cool.

I've seen some NYC models/hipsters who can pull off American Apparel's more crazy clothing, but they're so beautiful that they could be wearing potato sacks.

Not even the model looks good in it.

This would be cute as a layering piece, over jeans or a longer shorts with a cardigan and a scarf

Worn in the right way and the right color (black in my opinion) it can look fab :)

I'm okay with it. But given how cheap the material is, and how it takes all of three zips through a sewing machine (hem top, hem bottom, sew into a tube) why is it $36?!? It should cost more in the $10 range.

i think its safe to say that any garments like this on AA are usually sort of tongue in cheek, for the irony loving hipsters. people in the actual fashion world don't always seem to get the joke...

if u have a woderful body and you need to go to a party and you are quite elegant in your manner i think you can wear it. it's not that ugly. Expecially in blue or in black.'s a bit short..but you can wear it for a summer party..

TECHNO-SAUSAGE!! Ugh. You know a dress is truly skank when even a person with a terrific body cannot pull it off properly. No matter what you did to this dress, no matter what shoes, what other articles of clothing or accessories you added to it, it would either be dated, or skanky, and more likely both. The glitter and shine of the fabric, plus the short length, I think, is what pushes it past the limits. In black I have seen these work. Understated navy, or perhaps a dark olive, even a deep burgundy could look really pretty. Some skimpy dresses on the right figure work, either in a sexy sleek way, a summery lighthearted way, or a minimalist, elegant way... And some...are just skank.

This is horrible...I'd never consider wearing something like this unless it was part of a costume.

this place is a dancer store, all that stuff, the tacky lame leggings and dresses like this, are for stage. Music videos maybe a commercial. but i sure do hope thats all, because on a day to day wearing level, thats hideous.

Now THIS is the perfect dress...for Bay To Breakers! I would get an afro and perhaps roller skates. Now that's chic, baby.
