Slutty clothing usually has easy access...which is of course it's purpose....so, like locking the door or closing the window, wearing clothing which has harder access is a deterrent.I've asked them, "How do you go about gaining access to houses?" And many of them said that they would look for an open window or unlocked door and just go in the house. And I was amazed to find out how many houses that they encountered had doors unlocked. So I think a simple thing of locking your doors and windows is a deterrent. Anything that makes it more difficult that makes your house or you not a target can be a deterrent.
Slutty cloths = leaving the front door open: ease of access.
