How you dress as a teacher sets the learning tone for your students. Your appearance can set negative or positive learning environments. Beyond being professional, how you dress boosts your confidence level, overall improves your teaching, helps you make good impressions on parents and the school administrators.

Thankfully, dressing sustainably and school appropriately can be easy and fun by checking out these suggestions on the outfits and dresses for teachers.

Be Age-appropriate

When you’re well-dressed and confident, you convey a message to your students, letting them know that you are well-organized and in control. Do this by cultivating a professional persona with age-appropriate clothing.

While you don’t need to go over the top to dress, students will perceive you as a respectable figure of authority. This also applies to the makeup that you wear. Ensure that your makeup is light and appropriate for a school setting.

Adhere to the Dress Code

Dress codes vary from school to school. Ask for the dress code during the interview stages or upon resumption. If there’s a dress code, stick to them as best as you can. If there’s none, you can play it safe with business casual and still be fashionable.

Avoid Tight and Revealing Clothing

You should avoid overly clingy items – tops, skirts, dresses, or slacks. Although you should dress to suit your body type, you should also avoid wearing sheer or revealing outfits. These include above-the-knee dresses, excess cleavage-revealing, or chest revealing clothing that could be distracting. This doesn’t mean you should wear unflattering outfits. You can wear well-fitting outfits and still look great!

Trans-Seasonal Basic Pieces and Wardrobe Essentials

Invest in trans-seasonal clothes and invest in wardrobe basics and essentials to shave off the extra minutes spent trying to pick out an outfit. Have a few neutral pieces in your favorite colors and shades to mix and match easily. Don’t shy away from experimenting with color. You can be fun and expressive.

Consider Comfortable Teacher Shoes

If you want to dress more sustainably, change your attitude to shopping. Yes, we all love shoes. But do we really need that many? Consider buying shoes that suit most of your outfits and are comfortable at the same time, because teaching will most likely have you standing in classrooms for a large chunk of the day. Select comfortable but stylish shoes that will allow you to move around quickly. Don’t overplay it with casual tennis shoes and sandals, except the occasion calls for it. High stiletto heels or restricting loafers would not be the best option for a professional teacher. Keep your footwear casual and classy and consider vegan leather!

Keep Jewelry and Accessories Cool

Accessorizing is a great way to elevate your outfits. Don’t run away from jewelry and complimenting accessories but don’t overdo it. Find the right balance without wearing expensive or overstated jewelry. Not only could they be too much for appearance, but they could be at risk of damage at school.

Layering

In chilly weather, you will need to layer your outfits. Outer pieces like jackets, sweaters, cardigans and suit coats are great for layering. Have one of these on hand for eventual fluctuations and consider leaving one or two pieces of warmer pieces at school.
