Back to school shopping does not have to be all about the kids. A practical and stylish wardrobe can help set the tone for a teacher's year. Update your teaching wardrobe with comfortable and practical pieces which will ensure you always look good.
For those who have not got a minute and prefer hassle-free outfits, a no-fuss dress is a real sanity saver. Pennyblack at Design House Barna offers a selection of easy to wear and flattering dresses. This colour block number with tie-waist belt will flatter the waist. Pair it with tan tights and navy shoes or opaque tights and boots and layer with a cardigan for extra warmth. Another dress choice is this printed A-line chiffon dress from Benetton. Pair it with a wide belt, a long cardigan or shaped jacket, ankle boots, and tights.
Jeans and skinnies in colours or classic denim are in every teacher’s wardrobe. To smarten up the look wear it with a blouse, a shaped top, or a light knitted jumper and kitten heels, or go for a shaped blazer or coloured coat and coloured top. Each top must be in different style and colour to create a variety of looks with fewer pieces, and a simple change of accessories will create versatile ensembles.
A teacher’s wardrobe essential, the skirt, will easily update your look. This season’s skirts come in interesting hues of greens, mustard, or wine and patterns including floral, abstracts, and tribal inspired. The easy way to style it is to pair it with a simple long sleeved top in a similar colour to the skirt. Add jewellery and a scarf, and finish it off with tights and comfy pumps with comfortable heels. I love the range of skirts by Danish designer Noa Noa available at Ail Ruin boutique. Quirky and flattering, these skirts are year-round wardrobe staples. For extra colour in your outfit, choose a colourful pair of tights or leggings. Make sure the colour does not overwhelm the rest of your outfit.
