could be the way you act maybe even if you dont dress in that way
you just might not realise
anyways its not something to get worked up about since you are you and whatever anyone says doesnt change who you are

Tomboy perceptions can also involve your mannerisms, hairstyle, hobbies and tone of voice.
Not just face and fashion sense.

You are completely fine. Don't worry. Someone just wanted to rile you up for no reason. You sound like you dress really well and keep yourself proper, and that's what matters.

You friends are probably just teasing you for a laugh.
If you are a lot better at sports than they are and they feel that they can't compete with you, they may make some comments intended to persuade you to stop playing and do something that is traditionally seen as more feminine.
But that is their problem not yours.

Honestly don't take it to heart. I feel like labels like 'tomboy' and 'girly girl' are quite stereotypical as they focus on the stereotypes imposed on each gender. You do you and don't let anyone's comments undermine your view of yourself

I think people may have different definition of what a tomboy is. For me it's someone like the Aaliyah..the singer...her style. Girly but she has a thuggish ruggish vibe to her. So who knows what this person actually meant.

Why does it bother you so much? I've been called a tomboy my whole life even when I wear makeup and rock heels. It's not an insult. It's just a way of saying you have certain stereotypically masculine traits which I think everyone has. I find boxing people into definite gender descriptions silly because we're all a mix of both gender stereotypes. Don't let something so trivial get to you. You don't need to compensate or over-present yourself in a certain way. Just be you.

Your style sounds girly, so no idea why they called you a Tomboy. They could have been saying it sarcastically though

Tomboys don’t keep themselves proper or dress well?
