"porter" is "wearing" clothes

"se mettre" is more "to put on" some clothes

the action of dressing is very rarely translated in french with "se mette" only in the special case:

"se mettre quelque chose sur le dos" 

Literally : "to put something on your back" => put on some clothes.

otherwise we use "s'habiller" that can be translated by "to dress"
