Is it just me or did summer seem to fly bye? Here in Georgia, kids are already back in school, along with all my teacher friends! As much as we hate to leave summer behind, entering a new school year in style might be just what you need to put that extra pep in your step. I’m so excited to share 30+ teacher outfit ideas for your most stylish school year yet. The best part, these pieces were all hand selected as affordable, wardrobe staples that can carry you throughout the school year.

I encourage you to use this post as a resource. Peak in your closet and see what you already have that you might be able to use to recreate some of these looks. There is nothing better than breaking out that dress or blazer that is tucked in the back corner of your closet and breathing new life into it.

For a casual fall look, pair a floral printed dress with a denim jacket. Add suede booties for added texture. As it gets a little cooler, trade out the booties for knee high boots and a sweater coat!

To stretch your work wardrobe a little further, grab a summer dress and layer a cardigan over the top! I love how the taupe color plays well off of the yellow tons and blends nicely with the blush handbag. One of my favorite looks in the fall is to pair knee high suede boots with an above the knee dress. You can layer a denim jacket over the top or even a chunky cardigan!

I love a long line cardigan in the fall! The color of this one is especially pretty. Pair with a denim tank or even a white tee for a casual work wear look.

One of my favorite work wear pieces is a blazer! I especially love the pop of color that this purple one brings to a more traditional look. This blazer is such great quality and comes in a few other colors as well! I paired it with one of my favorite Logan and Lenora Daytripper bag. It’s perfect for work because it’s light weight, large enough to hold everything, and it’s machine washable. This way you can wash your bag every weekend and get rid of germs or any spills that may have occurred throughout the week.

For a more feminine look, pair a pleated midi skirt with a puff sleeve polka dotted top. These are both pieces that you could easily pair with other items in your closet as well. I’d also pair this top with black pants and flats. You could even add an oversized sweater to this midi skirt and switch out the open toed heels for booties in the fall.

A pleated midi skirt is so versatile as a work wear piece. Pair it with a statement top or layer a blazer over the top of a silk tank if you’re headed into a day of full of meetings.

For a slightly dressier look, pair cropped flare dress pants with a silk blouse and pink blazer! I’m loving the fit and quality of these black dress pants. They run true to size and feel like they are going to last a long time. I added a blush handbag and neutral heels, however you could trade those out for heels for booties in the winter.

If you’re wondering how to wear a statement top, here is a great option! This top has a larger puff sleeve detail so I like to keep it simple with that I pair it with. I added a pair of black pants to compliment the warmth of the top. I also love the look of these pants with a graphic tee and denim jacket for a casual Friday look.

As a teacher, a great cardigan is a wardrobe staple! I love both of these because they are neutral enough to be paired with just about anything in your closet, while also adding an extra layer if your office or classroom is more like a tundra.

The subtle animal print on this dress makes it perfect for work! The sleeve detail gives you enough coverage where you don’t have to add a layer. However, if you are chilly I would add a black or white blazer over the top!

This floral midi dress is the perfect summer to fall transitional piece. The floral pattern and fun color make it feel summery, but when paired with suede mules, it instantly has that fall vibe. You could easily add a fall hat for a date night look and switch out the mules for sneakers on the weekend. It’s a little oversized, so it would work great if you are expecting this fall.

You all know I love a great midi dress! When paired with a denim jacket and heels, this can be a great work option! Plus, a dress is great for those days when you need an outfit quickly, so that you can get out the door, and still have time to grab coffee on the way into work! You can also style it by layering a sweater over the top and adding a skinny belt.

You can’t go wrong with a little animal print in your wardrobe! I love this dress because you can pair it with heels and wear to work or switch them out for sneakers and wear on the weekend. Plus, this is something that I would leave on after work and meet up with friends for dinner!

When in doubt on what to wear to work, still with an all neutral look. Whether you are wearing a neutral cardigan or a little black dress, you’re sure to feel confident and ready to tackle anything that might come your way!

Here I’ve styled the same polka dotted sweater top from above with these fun colored dress pants from Target! This is a great weekend look for when you’re counting down the days until the weekend and need a little mood boosting look!

These pants are a must have! Not only is the color super fun, but the material has a great amount of stretch to them. If you are teaching little ones and on the floor, these would work great. Or if you’re sitting at a desk for longer stretches of times, these would be super comfortable to wear!

    Slightly unrelated…I’ve been wondering what paint color is on your front door? I’ve been looking for a pink similar to it but every one I try doesn’t look like I’m expecting.

    One idea to make lanyards look cute is to buy a set of clips and key chain type rings to clip to longer necklaces. Depending on the badge you can also get clear badge holders. I bought a huge pack on Amazon, and just attach my badge set up to any long and sturdy fashion necklace that goes with my outfit that day!! I always get a lot of compliments in the office. The upside is I always get asked for clips so others can have more fun with their badges! Here is an example: SANNIX 60pcs Key Chain Clip Hooks Swivel Clasps Lanyard Snap Hooks with Split Key Rings https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XFNHSQ3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_4TR40P0CBDMY11EV3YCY?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
