I think I might dress unappropriately but I'm not sure?

I think I might dress inappropriately. Can you tell me if you think i do? I break my school's dress code almost every day, but my clothes are fashionable and pretty. I don't wear strap shirts to school, mostly just tank tops and i dont wear shorts so short you can see by tush, but a few people have called me aslut. Am I?

Do you lay with many men? Of course not, you're not a slut. They have no right to judge you on what you wear, and it doesn't really sound like what you wear is revealing to me. As long as your underwear isn't showing, it's not revealing.

If you break your school's dress code every day, then according to them, yes, you are dressing inappropriately.

However, your school may have an incredibly strict dress code. If that's the case, you may be dressing normally, but not within the code.

I don't think so. I wear more revealing clothing then you, and I still don't think it's "slu.tty." Sleeping with a lot of people. That's slu.tty. Expressing yourself is not. School systems think they're better then everyone else anyways, and they're just not. You're not doing anything wrong. You just have the guts to do what you want and the rest of the sheep are unsettled by that.

It mostly depends on your standards. For example, I personally can't wear anything shorter than capris. It's not a rule, I just don't feel comfortable. However, unless the dresscode is incredibly strict, they have these kinds of rules in place for a reason. People might be uncomfortable seeing someone with short shorts or a low neckline, and schools mostly want to make everyone comfortable. They also don't want kids to bully other kids for immodest clothing (kind of like what's happening to you). If you don't feel uncomfortable wearing those clothes, then as long as you're wearing something you should be fine.

Then, waht exactly are you wearing. Be more specific as to what you're wearing. Don't mean it in a pervy way. But if you're not wearing booty shorts, with everything and your cash-and-prizes hanging out. Or low cut tank tops. I don't see the problem. However technically you are braking school conducts.

Honestly, if they think your a slut then first of all, they have no MANNERS. Second, anything you have doubts with, just don't wear it!! if your confident about something then wear it. Also, ask your parents. They give you good advice. :D

The real question is, do you feel like you're showing to much? Do you think that some people might be uncomfotable around you? Just remeber Modest it Hottest!!!

hey, so, girls and guys at our age are very judgemental. as long as you don't sleep around with lots of guys, you're not technically a sl.ut, but, you might - in their eyes - look like it. when getting dressed, I would try taking a picture and sending it to a friend, and honeslty asking "is this too slu.tty?" I've done it before, and it works out. if you're getting in trouble at school, you may want to rethink your wardrobe, because you don't want to 1) get in more trouble at school, that isn't good and 2) don't want girls and guys thinking nasty things and starting rumors. but, the BOTTOM LINE IS if you like it, and you look in the mirror feeling confident and happy and stylish, then, go for it.

Modest is hottest. I personaly appreciat it when girls dress so I can stay focused on what i'm doing . I't's a shame but us guys are easily distracted, personaly i would never call you out like they did, but if I was your freind I would sugest more covering clothes. schools shouldn't have to much say but they are decent guidelines.no girl no matter how imoddest or flirtatous deserves be called a "slut" they are some ones daughter, I personaly would want my daughter to never have to deal with that. my sister says is head shoulders knee's and toes is the best way to check.

You're fine. Just ignore those people. Honestly, if there wasnt a sensor on this website and if i wasnt afriad this post wouldnt go through if i used them, I would use some pretty harsh words right now.
Unlike everyone else on here, I HATE the word sl.ut. what gives anyone else the right to determine that someone else's actions makes them some low class blah. What they do, if their business and what you do is your business. I couldnt care less if you've slept with a different person every night. I dont think that should mean anything- do what you want.

No, you are not slut! I see nothing wrong with wearing clothes that show you're confident with the way you look.

ugh people are so mean :P of course you`re not you`re a bit of a rebel since you break the rules (which is awesome)
but no you`re not a s.lut so many girls i know dress pretty ...interstingly but they`re some of the best girls at schools whereas the ones who dress "appropriately" are..... less pure i guess is a nice way to put it
anyway i say rock on Princess and keep wearin what you want cause no one can really tell you what to do or not do, and you`re one who`s actually figured that out stand out and dont take any grief from the clones

I just thought this. If you're asking us, it means you have some doubts. Which means you're questioning yourself. Which means, you thinking you possibly are dressing slu.tty. So, that's really up to you to decide. We all can give you what we think. But if you think you are dressing slu.tty, then you know. If you don't think so, rock what you got.

Personally, I can't wear that kind of stuff to school. If your parents have a problem with what you wear, or if the school approached you with a problem, then you need to change your clothes. But, if it's just the random person that's calling you an inappropiate name, surond yourself with suportive friends.

I really don't think you're dressing slutty. And I feel for you! Technically, the right thing to do is follow your school's dress code. It's just a matter of respecting the rules that were laid down. You can always wear whatever you want outside of school, like I do. Either way, don't listen to people calling you a slut. In their minds, if you dress like a slut, you must sleep around with a lot of guys. But they might just have a legalistic way of thinking what dressing "slutty" actually is. Tbh I think you honestly coming forward and asking if you really are dressing inappriately is a sweet and awesome thing to do. Believe it or not, I just got a bunch of respect for you becuase you came forward about it and were honest and open about it. Kodoos to you! :D
