You shouldn't try to change your boyfriend or girlfriend. That is pretty much one of the golden rules. You date someone for who they are today. If you make someone your partner it means accepting them for how they look, dress and act. It's obviously different if we're talking about health situations like a partner taking up smoking or drinking or drugs but when it comes to dress sense then it's one of those things you can't control your partner over. It's their choice and preference and you really have no say in it and shouldn't feel entitled to it either. You can maybe express some feelings about it, like you did, but then you have to leave it and accept it. Dragging it out and making it a big issue will make her feel upset because you are challenging her freedom and asking her to change to make YOU happy and not her and we all know each person is responsible for their own happiness.
You need to accept it or leave. Either way you can't force her to be someone she doesn't want to be. It doesn't work like that in relationships.

I wouldn't want my girl dressing me up, I rather she accept and appreciate how I decide to express myself through clothing.
