    Your fashion is your own, no matter what people tell you stay yourself. Next time somebody teases you just start laughimg out loud and dont even respond, just keep laughing and walk away, dont wat to do that? Smile kindly and comment them on what they are wearing, kill em with kindness! Or you can just shake your head and say "you must be really jelous of my wardrob" smile sweetly and walk away.
