Looking older has NOTHING to do with your height and weight. It's about how you present yourself.
I am only 18 (I tell people on here that I am 19 so they take me a bit more seriously..but shhh!!) and I have had men ask me out for drinks, thinking that I am about 24. I don't act like a skank nor do I put on loads of makeup. It's all about acting mature and putting the right image out there.
For instance...don't wear shirts like these...http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://d2g465z57r2u8t.cloudfront.net/photos/25829/JCrew-Beaded-Zebra-Graphic-Tee-f1.jpg&imgrefurl=http://jcrewaholics.com/behind-the-scenes/win-more-jcrew-goodies-from-madberries/&usg=__D6OBRUUM-jm6nTWN18p1gJrNLA8=&h=500&w=500&sz=97&hl=en&start=0&sig2=ktyJVhj8dVfJqVl0_XflQQ&zoom=1&tbnid=OJP9t-e0USFysM:&tbnh=146&tbnw=146&ei=jgw7Tp6oJMWssQKj-agb&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=363&page=1&ndsp=22&ved=1t:429,r:19,s:0&tx=70&ty=105.
Ya know, graphic tees. They make you look A LOT younger.
A simple button down or sweater is doable. Simple clothing makes you seem older.
Don't over do the makeup. Make it simple. SIMPLICITY is key in looking older. A thin eyeliner, mascara, foundation and lipgloss is all that is needed.
Make sure you present yourself well. Shoulders held high. Act courageous , not mousy.
No shoes like these...
Trade those ugly freshman year clogs for a nice, womanly looking pair of flats.
It's all about presentation and if you believe. If you act mature and look mature,people will take you seriously.
Don't dress like a 12 year old, dress like a 20 year old (but make it believe-able).
Simple make up. Simple clothing.
Pink shirt that reads "HOLLISTER" across the front, potato shoes (seen above), jeans with holes in them, tons of ugly "jersey shore" type makeup, you don't speak well, you talk about high school constantly....
a Simply button down shirt, or a nice pink tank top. A red shirt. Any simple, shirt that compliments your body well. Nice, bra that accentuates your body. Simple makeup that makes your face look naturally pretty. Simple hairstyle, up or down. Skinny jeans or any pair of jeans with no holes or patches. Ballet flats (make you look older, trust me), and simple Accessories. Silver earrings, jewelry or bracelets. Wearing a watch helps.
DON'T listen to those other girls. MAKEUP is not the way to go. LESS makeup is better. Make sure your makeup compliments you!!!!!!!!!!! You don't want to look like this:
That doesn't make you look older, it makes you look like a whore.
Hope I helped =]
This is pretty much me (when I go to work) on an every day basis.**
I'd post a picture, but I don't have that kind of time and I'm sure you want an answer NOW, but I can if you like.
**I mean, wear what you want when you are off of work, but these are my suggestions for when you go to work and when you want to look "older".
