6 Teacher Outfit Ideas

As we move into a new Spring season, it is time to refresh that teacher outfit! With everything in price going up, refreshing the clothing items in your closet may not be at the top of your list. However, I am here to help you find the very best and most cute teacher outfits.

When looking at what most teachers wear, I’ve got skinny jeans, summer dresses, midi skirts, etc. Like you, I do NOT like spending a small fortune on clothing. Instead, I like to have a few staple pieces that I can mix and match with other pieces in my closet.

Each item on this list provides you with my personal experience and opinion of each product so that you don’t waste time and money.

1. Overall With Tank Top

These loose overalls are likely my new favorite outfit for teaching. Not only can I wear these all day in the classroom without feeling uncomfortable and stuffy, but I can easily transition this outfit outside in the summer. This is a fun style that you can quickly wear with the white tank or black t-shirt or even pair with your favorite graphic tee.

I know most people think of Crocs as those ugly and chunky shoes with holes, but guys, these Crocs Brooklyn Low Wedge sandals are a game changer! They are cute, but I can also wear them with so many different outfits during the school year. You will one hundred percent forget that you are wearing a pair of chunky sandals. Even further, be prepared with a surprised look when your teacher friends receive the response of, “…yea, they are Crocs!”.

2. Jeans With Cardigan

If you want a comfortable outfit to wear to school that still looks stylish and professional, this is your go-to for cute teacher outfits. I have owned this cardigan for almost a year now, and it goes with so many different things in my closet.

The white tank underneath the sweater provides just enough embellishments with the buttons to make an excellent option for any outfit. I am considered relatively short, so I like for my outfits to be able to be paired with teacher shoes that have some height. The black suede boots are a comfortable wardrobe staple.

3. Flows Pants With Tank Top

If you want a cross between a summer dress and a pair of pants, these high-waisted “flows pants” are the perfect solution. I got so many compliments on what most thought was a skirt, but really, it was just a cute pair of pants! They were comfortable for all-day wear and

This same white tank goes with SO MANY THINGS in my closet. This sleeveless tank comes in several colors that can be dressed up or down for whatever style you want.

Make this outfit even more fun when you pair your pants and shirt with a cute necklace! I can now dress up every single one of my teacher outfits with a necklace with this necklace set. Plus, you will love that these cute gold and silver colored necklaces were under fifteen dollars!

4. Dress With Denim Jacket

I love wearing this fun and comfy midi dress. I adore this midi dress because I can easily pair this with a denim jacket and a cute pair of ankle boots, and voila, a perfect teacher outfit. This cotton dress has just enough stretch to be comfortable and has pockets!

5. Casual Dress With Cardigan

Here is another cotton dress that is the perfect addition to your wardrobe. This dress will inspire outfit ideas to mix up your school year outfit choices. You can easily pair this dress with a cute pair of flats, ankle boots, or wedge sandals.

I would wear this dress in the Spring and the Summer, choosing versatile colors in solids (i.e., navy blue, white, or black). On the cooler days in the Fall, you can ever wear this with a pair of leggings and those ankle boots. The dress is such a versatile piece! I like to wear this dress with my navy blue cardigan sweater or a jeans jacket.

6. Summer Dress With Jeans Jacket

While I would not wear this jacket to work without a cover-up for the shoulders, I chose this midi skirt dress because it is a welcome pop of color and a fun addition to my wardrobe. This dress comes in bright colors such as yellow, pink, and other fun patterns. Because this dress can be worn with sneakers, heels, or wedges, you will be glad you added such a versatile piece to your closet.

Make this a proper teacher outfit by adding a cute jean jacket with low wedge sandals (the Oyster colored ones are my favorite!). You can even wear this outfit to church on Sundays or a picnic in the summer with a pair of plain canvas white sneakers.

These teacher outfits will be sure to solicit compliments from your colleagues, followed by the illicit, “Where did you get that?”. Cute teacher outfits don’t have to come with a large price tag! I hope you have found enough inspiration to begin shopping for some great pieces to teach your heart out.
