Having the perfect outfit can make the day special for you and your students!

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.

The best part? You’ll easily be able to dress these jackets down with a pair of jeans on the weekend. As for the Reed pants? They're pretty much go with everything!

How to dress for teaching 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.

From Head to Toe

So, what are the best shoes for teachers? The ones in which you feel comfortable and allow you to hold your own in the classroom - keeping in mind, of course, that most schools require closed-toe shoes.

What are the most comfortable shoes for teachers?

Standing is part of the job so you should be looking for shoes that offer some support and that have a good sole. You can opt for a nice pair of flats or a small heel in summer and keep it cozy in winter with ankle boots or dressier sneakers.
