The other day my boyfriend told me I looked horrible and it really hurts me. I am very sensitive when it comes to my looks so it is still bothering me a week later. He later said that he was referring to my outfit but it still bothers me because I put a lot of effort in the way I look around him. Am I being too sensitive? Is this something that I should have already gotten over?

You're sensitive, but that was a jerk move. He could have simply said he liked you better in this or that outfit.
I said you're sensitive, not over-sensitive, and I mean that. You just said it was bothering you, you didn't do anything mean to him in return.
He is your boyfriend, he holds a special place in your circle of friends. His opinion weights a lot, and can hurt you much worse than someone else's opinion. It's normal !
I would try to tell him, without any animosity, that you'd rather he pointed out the outfits he likes rather than point the ones he doesn't. Instead of saying "you look horrible/I don't like this one", he could put it this way : "I like that one better/Why don't you switch the shirt with this one ?".
This way you know what he likes better, while receiving compliments, and he gets to see you wearing what he finds more attractive. You both win in the end :)1
