"TBH, you look gay." Everyone was wearing pretty normal clothes for a teenager these days though, your typical khaki chinos, sneakers, etc. I decided to express and stand out a bit. Prior to when I went out I asked my sister if my outfit was alright - she said to wear the sperry shoes since my top half the body was boring (my sister has good fashion sense, that of a celebrity imo) and since even I thought it was kind of weird.
I was wearing a plain cyan button up with a dark navy blue cardigan, dark navy blue print shorts (yellowish diamonds scattered around) and the main reason why I got called gay, an outrageous sperry shoe (white, blue, orange - yeah even I thought the colours were off).
I got bullied all day for it and it shut my self-esteem extremely low; I tried to accept the joke and joke along with them but inside I was really hurt.
Can someone please give an opinion if this outfit was actually alright and my friends were wrong in judgement or was it actually bad?
If so, please make recommendations for summer/beach attire.

You know what? I've seen guys wear things like that all the time, and never had I automatically though, " That guy is definitely gay.", and it also sounds like they were wearing about the same thing... it was completely uncalled for for them to do that the entire day. If they do it again, you should tell them how you really feel. If your "friends" continue, maybe they're not true friends. Only true friends accept you no matter what. Whether that's how you dress, or your sexuality, or anything else...0
