English or western, for safety you'll need:
1) Boots with at least a 1" heel. You might have something that will do until you can get some boots, the 1" heel is a safety measure that helps keep your foot from going through the stirrup and getting caught
2) Pants that go to your ankles, jeans are great
3) A helmet if your instructor doesn't provide them.
