well the Men and children,boys, wore breechcloths and a pair of moccasins! the women and girls wore long deerskin dresses which were called buckskin dresses which they woul…d wear with moccasins or boots! The men and women wore different things. The women wore deerskin dresses, and high fringed boots. The men wore breechcloths with leather leggings, and moccasins. The leaders also wore tall feather headdresses. Originally, Cheyenne men wore only a breechclout of deer or antelope skin tanned very soft, with long flaps front and back. Leggings typically had a triangular flap on the outside of the leg, long enough to touch the ground and loose enough to flap noisily as the man walked along. The inside of these flaps could be painted bright red or orange, although the Cheyenne generally favoured the colours green and yellow. Men did not originally wear shirts, but later copied them from other Plains tribes and used mountain sheep or deer hides, with a long triangle added at the neck. Shirts were often painted yellow with the fringed edges painted green. Women wore different styles of buckskin dress as fashions changed, often with a leather belt at the waist. These dresses reached to mid-calf and were heavily fringed, with horizontal rows of elk teeth, shells or beads. Moccasins had hard leather soles and were made with or without ankle flaps according to the season. Quill, bead and tin cone tinklers were used for decoration. Cheyenne moccasins typically had two short tails of leather at the heel, made of deerskin strips or buffalo tail. Cheyenne women often sewed their short leggings to their moccasins, making them look like boots. For warmth, robes of buffalo hides or elk hide were worn as wraps; later trade blankets were used instead. Entirely different dress was worn by warriors taking part in the Sun Dance ritual; a long kilt or skirt from waist to ankles, wreaths of sage on the head and around the arms and special face and body paint (for example, members of the Kit Fox warrior society painted themselves entirely yellow), with eagle bone whistles and cut-out shapes of rawhide hung around their necks. the Cheyenne Indian men wore a breech cloth which is a piece of cloth with a belt covering the front and back with moccasins. the Cheyenne Indian woman wore a dress made out of deer skins or buffalo skins which was called the buckskin dress with high fringed leather boots. their dress often had bead work up by the chest and was very beautiful.
Every tribe was different and clothing changed over time, particularly when trade cloth and ready-made clothes became available from traders. In general, men and boys were… considered fully dressed in just moccasins and a breechclout which was of soft-tanned deerskin and had flaps of varying lengths depending on the tribe. Shirts, thigh-length leggings and buffalo robes would be added when needed. Women wore a range of different dresses of deer, elk or mountain sheep skins - depending entirely on what was available in their area. Some dresses were of two skins, others were made with one at the front, one at the back and a third forming a cape or yoke section across the shoulders and sleeves. Women wore moccasins like the men, but their leggings reached to below the knee and had ties to keep them up - in some Plains tribes the leggings and moccasins were sewn together almost like boots. Each tribe used different styles of decoration, originally of dyed porcupine quills and later of glass beads obtained from the traders. The size of the glass beads used can help to date an item of clothing; from about 1790 to 1850 large "pony beads" were used - these were available in a very limited range of colours. From the 1850s much smaller "seed beads" were used and these came in a wide range of colours. Each tribe had its own favourite colours and designs but there were sometimes exceptions to the norm. Trade blankets, stroud cloth and ready made shirts and dresses were quickly adopted by some groups, while others resisted all white influences for as long as possible. .

I guess you mean "How did the Arikara dress in the 19th century?". The Arikara or Sanish are one of three so-called "village tribes" living along the Upper Missouri river… (the others being the Mandan and Hidatsa); although they had many aspects of Plains culture, they lived in semi-permanent earth-lodge villages and were only marginally Plains people. At an early date men wore just a deerskin poncho, which later developed into a shirt with sleeves left open beneath, a triangular neck flap and bands of quillwork, Leggings were each made of an entire deerskin, with wide flaps each side; breechclouts were narrow and short (like those of their relatives the Pawnee). Women wore the two-skin dress made of white-tanned antelope or deerskins, decorated with fringe around the lower edge of the sleeves and skirt. Short leggings of antelope skin were also worn. Arikara moccasins were of the soft-soled type with the puckered toe gathered into a U-shaped insert above the instep. Women liked the decoration on their leggings to match that on their moccasins. By the late 19th century, hard-soled moccasins were being worn. Warriors wore roaches of dyed deer hair, attached to the hair with a bone roach spreader. Some brushed up the fringe at the front of the head, others simply wore two braids. Women either wore the hair parted in the middle and hanging long and loose, or braided it when working - the parting was painted red. Arikara warriors do not seem to have used the Sioux-style warbonnet until very late, instead important warriors and chiefs wore a "fan" of eagle feathers attached to the back of the hair, spreading out like a halo. Other men simply wore one or two eagle feathers or fur caps of many kinds. Body and face paint was either in solid colours or spotted in yellow or white on another colour. See links below for images:
