Stereo-typically, I will look at a woman who is dressed to the nines and think, "uh-oh, looks like she could be high-maintenance". Whether she is or not, I don't know (and of course I'd find out through talking to her etc..).
A guy dressed in sweats and a t-shirt could mean he's not that rich but it could also mean that he just got back from the gym, etc..
So, that raises the question: Does the amount of money you spend on your clothes, match your personality or is it just a silly stereotype?

No, the amount of money you spend on clothes is not necessarily indicated. For the examples you provided:
The guy could be $200 sweats nowadays, so it's not necessarily an indication of his social status.
Next, girls always like to look pretty, so the fact that a gal looks well put together isn't an indication that she's high maintenance, only that she likes to look good. It doesn't necessarily take a lot of money to pull together a decent wardrobe.
The TIME spent selecting the clothing can indicate how high/low maintenance a person is. The price of a couple of items (e.g., sun glasses, a watch) would also be indicative of his/her personality.2
