This new costume seems to be in the vein of the "practical" costumes adopted by other female characters in both DC and in Marvel Comics. Whereas the original Wonder Woman costume featured a skirt, and other versions had her in the equivalent of short hot pants, this costume covers her up and is a radical de-sexualization of DC Comics' most recognizable female character. Note that the costume worn by new Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot for the upcoming DC movie has her in a variation of the old outfit, basically with an armored skirt.
