Advice Requested - A serious professional look
Advice Requested - A serious profession
Hello all, I am a college instructor and yield a deal of authority. However, I am very young looking. I also have a kind persona. This often (real or fabricated) causes me issues at work. I oftentimes feel like I am not taken seriously or am viewed as less as all of my coworkers have at least 15 years on me.
I realize that this issue is multifaceted and therefore not due to just one thing, but one thing I know I can do is work on my appearance.
Can you all share some techniques (make up, clothing, or otherwise) that you use or avoid when you are trying to convey a "take me seriously" look.
All thoughts are welcome!

I could go on and on about the fashion side (another huge passion of mine aside from beauty). I find that places like New York & Company is a great place to start as they always have killer deals (the last sale I took advantage of was all pants were buy one get one free, and everything else minus the sale/clearance was buy one get one 40% off). Their prices aren't as high as a department store, but they definitely rank higher in overall professional/business casual than shops where youths and teens shop and frequent.
