When I left my last job four years ago, I had a serious personal style transformation to undertake. Until that point, I had been striving to express myself in a way that would hide my age, present me as a professional, or at least mask that I felt the need to compensate for my age. I was always the youngest professional in my office, from my jobs at financial institutions to public policy roles. Also, being 5’2, with shoulder-length, straight brunette hair, a confident talk and proud personality, I was often referred to as cute by my peers which drove me crazy until only recently.
