Whether your school has a formal teacher dress code to abide by or whether you get to decide what constitutes school-appropriate outfits, dressing for work doesn’t have to be boring or expensive! And gone are the days where your professional wardrobe was limited to black and greys - there’s nothing like a fun print or bright colour to make sure your students are awake!

How to dress for a teaching interview?

First - let’s talk about teacher interview outfits. Ever heard the saying “dress for the job you want, not the job you have”? Well, this is a perfect example. Now is not the time to pull out your favourite pair of distressed jeans and a basic cotton t-shirt! No need to go out and buy a suit but you can’t go wrong with a classic blazer, a sleek pair of pants and understated but chic jewellery.

We love these blazers which make a statement and end up becoming the focal point of your outfit all while remaining professional:

Teacher Dresses

If you’re a dresses kinda gal you will want to look for pieces that hit at or below the knee and have a sleeve, unless you’re planning on wearing a longline cardigan or layering with a bamboo basic.

The key to building a teacher wardrobe is to select versatile pieces that can be styled in different ways such as by adding a belt, a patterned tight or statement shoes or to go for ones that are interesting enough to allow you to just throw on and go on those busy mornings where you desperately need that second cup of coffee!

Casual Teaching Outfits

Lucky enough to work at an institution that allows you to dress on the casual side? Why not take full advantage of it by choosing soft, stretchy fabrics like bamboo or micro modal that allow for freedom of movement and pair them with a soft knit for ultimate comfort!

Teacher Dresses For Graduation

Graduation will no doubt be one of, if not the, most important milestone in your students’ lives so why not dress for the occasion! Go for a classic yet elegant dress in a soft colour so as not to overshadow your students in the grad photos. And if you feel more like yourself when you're wearing pants, opt for an elegant flowy fabric like silk - paired with a heel they look just as sophisticated as a dress.
