How to look older?

I'm 20. I'm really tired of being asked for my ID, hearing, "Oh wow, you look about 16!" and people mistaking my tall niece for my older sister.
I really want to look like I'm my age. How do I do this? DIfferent hair? Different make up? Excuse my DP but I don't usually wear short tops like that, because I know stuff like that can make me look like a teenybopper.
Please help!

  • I have the same issue. Honestly just dressing in professional attire is the closest you can do. I just ignore it and continue on. Eventually maybe in a decade or so it won't be as much of an issue...

    • But professional clothes outside of a job is so boring! I'll try it though. Thanks :)
      And tell me about it. It sucks, but I know I'll be grateful when I'm older and actually wanting to look younger.

  • People tend to consider a petite , slim women younger. Look at Ariana Grande , she seems like she is 17 and i think she dress like a 17 y. o girl though.
    Change your clothing style. It might be helpful.
    Try something more formal If you like.

    • I think Ariana is cute ☺️ But if I tried to work her style I'd look like a 5 year old HA!
      Yes. perhaps it's time to shop for boyfriend jeans and blazers.

  • Grow facial hair.
