Q: Ladies, has your dress changed over the past few years? I'm 50, and I've noticed younger female faculty dress far more casually than in the past. Does it change how students perceive us? Does it change how administrators perceive us? My university is still pretty traditional, and too many of our new female faculty look like sloppy grad students. I want to tell them to be sharper with their choices, but don't want to be an old fogy (fogette?) Is there any way I can help my sisters?
