Hello ladies. It’s that time of year!!!! School is back in session!!! In this post I will be sharing some fun back to school outfits for teachers that will jump start the year. I remember when I was a kid and how excited I used to be returning back to school. I was super excited about back to school shopping and laying out my clothes the night before!!!
Just because we are adults, does not mean that excitement should diminish!!! I’m not a teacher, but working in the schools, creating comfortable and stylish outfits for the new school year is essential to making a great impression! Here are some outfits that hopefully provide style inspiration for your first week of school!!!
Back to school outfit #1 Wear a piece with print!!
Style tip: Tucking your blouse into you skirt will keep the outfit looking more professional, refined and pulled together!!

It is still very warm here in Houston and a cute breezy skirt with a bold print, will make a statement on the first day of school. The skirt is an appropriate length and the blouse is sleeveless, but conservative at the top. Perfect for a school setting. Bring out one of your bold pants, skirts, or blouse and then pair it with a sold piece.
Back to school outfit #2 Wear a wrap dress

Louis Vuitton bag: see above
Wrap dresses are the best thing ever created!! (Thank you, Diane Furstenberg!!!) They are literally the most flattering dresses on the planet no matter what your size is. If you normally wear pants or are a maxi dress wearing kind of teacher, try a wrap dress!!! They are the perfect length, provides a lot of give when you are moving around the school, and still looks professional, but stylish!! This dress is from BCBG, that I picked up as a hand me down from one of my cousins!!!
Outfit # 3 Play with prints and textures!!! In this outfit, I mixed leopard and stripe prints together. This is a great way to add interest to your back to school outfit and still be appropriate. Want to know more on how to mix prints? Click how to mix prints for beginners. Think about adding texture with your shoes. This pair has fur, but still very work appropriate and makes the outfit pop. This back to school outfit is one of my favorites because of how casual, but chic and appropriate it is for working in the schools.

Style tip: To complete an outfit try adding a vest, jacket, or cardigan. That third piece allows the outfit to feel more pulled together.
