Like most have posted, look doesn't count at all. What counts is just having fun and catching a few fish...no matter what you are wearing.
I sport some trendy duds like the silly Tilly hat, high tech fishing shirts, quick dry pants, etc. but not becuase I care how I look, I just don't want skin removed from over exposure to sun. I also like the comfort of Under Armour undies when it is 100F while smallie fishing.
Heck, I even got a buff because my neck is red enough already and don't need no sun burn to go with it. And yes I have sun gloves cause I am too lazy to reapply sunscreen every 2 hours
I have it all too, and though the Tilley is the one I referenced looking really stupid on me, I wish I had some sun gloves fishing in the gulf last weekend.
That gear makes a huge difference, just ask the guys in the tournament who were beet red at the end of the day. Good gear is a lot cheaper than skin cancer
