Some Teacher wardrobe ideas! But these can go for any professional career, I think! Just some ideas for inspiration.
Basic rules to live by when shopping for teacher attire/professional attire
- Above the knee? Too short. —> I know it is hard to find skirts/dresses that go to your knee, but professional attire is usually trademarked with hitting the knee. If it is a few inches higher than your knee, that is okay; however, try to find things that at least hit the knee.
- Put your “girls” away. —> No one wants to see an immense amount of cleavage, especially in the workplace! You will be bending down, or sitting at a desk and people can see down your shirt! Save the low cut tops (if you must…) for the weekends.
- Having trouble? Stick with the classics. —> My go to style trend is not a trend at all, but a classic. A Pencil skirt with a blazer, slacks with a blazer, etc can all be great wardrobe pieces that never go out of style. The basic colors or black, white, cream, brown, can be used in any outfit. Fun patters are great when you want to mix something up and be bold, but you can never go wrong with the basics.
- Little Black Dress—> THANK YOU Coco Chanel for introducing us to this staple piece. It should be in every woman’s wardrobe; I have at least 3, if not more. All you need is a simple black dress that fits your style, taste, and body. You really can’t go wrong with a LBD, as long as it is an appropriate length. You can mix it up and add some diversity with statement pieces (jewelry) or knock out heels. This is a must in any wardrobe, professional or not!
