Peacocking is when someone uses elaborate and ornate clothing, props and general attire to attract a mate. It can be attributed to the same act that peacocks do in which they spread their colorful wings in order to attract a partner. 

Example Use: Friend 1 – “Does this outfit look pretty ok to you?”

Friend 2 – “Woah girl, that outfit is too much, you are going to a bar not a club! You are definitely peacocking for this guy aren’t you?”
