In one of Bill Maher's best routines, he addresses the fashion of tawdry 
undress, something like:
I feel sorry for whores.  
What can whores wear today to let people know they are whores? 
"No, I'm not on my way to an opening. I really am a whore!"

In curmudgeonly mode, I tend to think of the whore-style as more symptomatic

slave-caste banana republic: 
*outsource jobs-
*increase education costs-
*decrease social mobility-
*reduce freedom and privacy protections-
*whore style
