Everyone around the world mostly knows India is a traditional country and even in India way of dressing styles vary from region to region. Try Indian clothes like kurtas, salwar and you can little modern wear like tees, jeans better to avoid shorts, skimpy clothing. They are comfortable and modest enough for you to navigate in India. Cover your head with a scarf or something while visiting temples and mosques. Avoid roaming alone, especially in Delhi it is not predicted to be safe.
Be confident when talking to Autorickshaws and taxis, so you cannot be considered as an easy target. Also, inform your taxi number or auto rickshaw to your friends and inform it loud. Get yourself a prepaid SIM, which offers very cheap services as information these days is passed through messages and emails.
And carry a list of all the emergency numbers.
Coming to transport metros, local trains, taxis etc., are available.
