Some of the more expensive stuff has some kind of stat change, but I just wear whatever looks good. I could have sworn there were more stats on armor on the Japanese server though...
[edit:] I should have tested this first... Clothing adds physical defense, and some accessories add magic defense. It isn't in the item description, but you can see the change in your stat window.
