I would love to believe that, but clothes, like it or not, are a uniform that tells people (rightly or wrongly) about the group you belong to. People quickly assign you to that group. Your more likely to be taken seriously if you fit the groups norms. Break the norms and you face ridicule to correct the transgression you have made. Continue to break them and you risk being an outcast of the group. (Basic primate social psychology?)
What attracts women are a number of thing unique to each individual. Generally: long-term stability, security (wealth is an indicator of this) and a shared sense of values. This is why women are attracted to older men, generally they have stopped drifting, accumulated resources and are more willing to settle down.
