The "style police" will not come to your rescue if you crash.
I know at your age that the Hi-Viz stuff is a bit loud. Heck, I probably wouldn't be too keen on it if it was around when I was your age. But the truth is there is less and less responsibility and focus with non-riders that being seen is one variable we riders can control to a big degree. The judges will tell you: "I'm sorry, your honor, but I didn't see the motorcycle". For me, I have enough passion to ride that I want to see another day on the bike.
I have an Olympia Bushwacker Hi-Viz jacket (if you can wear size medium and like 3/4 length, Amazon still has them for $159), Sliders Hi-Viz gloves, Icon Alliance Hi-Viz helmet. When someone comes out with Hi-Viz mesh pants I'll get that, too. I even have a Hi-Viz Aerostich shirt that reads "Loud Suits Save Lives". Now...if only I can find Hi-Viz boots and undies........
At the very least, might you consider a Hi-Viz vest, like the road workers wear. They are cheap, easy on\off your jacket. Throw it on as the sun sets. Be seen!
Have you seen the AirGlide 3 Toxic? It isn't just loud...it SCREEEEEEMS!!!!
Ok, I'll get off my 2 cent soapbox now....
