In like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing. -1 Timothy 2:9
3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel—
4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. -1 Peter 3:3-4
There is nothing wrong in itself with nice clothes and jewelry, just don‘t go overboard.
But a Christian lady should not rely on that for her beauty.
Nothing wrong with clothes that are in fashion.
But clothing should not be sexually suggestive.
Clothing should not imply that the wearer is immodest or immoral.
Moms and dads should occasionally talk with their daughters about this.
Males are very attracted to the opposite sex by sight.
Showing a little too much is going to get their attention, but the guys most attracted by sexy or immodest clothing - is that the kind of guy you really want to attract?
If that is what attracts him to you - is he going to be just as attracted to the next scantily clad girl who walks by?
Is that the kind of man you really want to marry?
By the way, these and other verses would also imply men should also dress and act decently.
