Yes, Islamically there would be no problem for her to wear such clothes, as long as there is no cultural issue that sees this to be inapproproiate.

It might be the case that from a shar'i perspective something is permissible, but within the context of a culture, it is seen in a different way, and therefore one should also take that into consideration. 

And Allah knows best

A female must have consent of her shar'i guardian (her father / her paternal grandfather) for her to get married. 

The exemption for this is if she is a divorcee, widow, (in other words not a virgin), or is completely independent in all her decisions (rashidah). 

This is the shar'i ruling, and of course, we must look at the social factors for marriage, within our Islamic teachings, that marriage is not just an individual decision, but also crucial to involve those around you. 

Yes, should the shar'i guardian refuse in every way to grant consent, the girl can refer to her Marja' taqleed or an Islamic judge to solve her issue. 

And Allah knows best.

Temporary marriage (Mut'ah marriage) is an Islamic marriage which saves those who can not afford permanent marriage. You and her can agree on Mahr and time for the contract. If she is a virgin Muslim girl, her father's permission will be required. She can put a condition on you not to take her virginity until you have permanent marriage.

You can read on this website more details about temporary marriage (Mut'ah marriage) or ask your local Shia mosque scholars about its rules in Shariah.

If you have your family's blessings, and she has her family's blessings, then you can commence with communicating with her, within the shar'i boundaries of course. That would be something positive, to get the know the person prior to the marriage ceremony. 

However, if it is away from parents knowing, and without any correct guidance, then you should not do that. A male/female going behind their parents' and secretly communicating with another person, wanting to supposedly marry them, is not at all advisable. 

Parents should never be the last to know. That is a very disloyal trait, and in most cases ends very bad. First step is to have family involved, and then everything will fall in place, in shaa Allah.

With prayers for your success.

In our Shari'ah, we do not have any prohibition or censuring of marriage of a Seyid/Seyidah to a non-Seyid/Seyidah. This is a cultural practice and personal preference of a parent. 

One must bear in mind though that if one is to marry a Seyid/Seyidah, they must stress on a higher level of honouring and respecting them, due to their lineage to Ahlul Bayt (a.s.). 

As this is a frequently asked question, please refer to other answers given on this:

Zaid Alsalami's response to Is a female Sayed allowed to marry a non-Sayed male? (al-islam.org)

And:

It is not permissible to take part in inappropriate topics whether participants are males or females or mixed as far as the topic is inappropriate.

Some special topics for men only or for women only, can be appropriate if discussed among same gender only but are inappropriate if discussed in a mixed group of males and females.

 Muslim must avoid any inappropriate discussion looking not only to the topic but also to the participants.
