5 Must-have Items You Need in Your Teacher Wardrobe for Fall | Plus Outfit Inspiration



I am always on the lookout for affordable pieces that have lots of longevity to wear while I'm teaching. I like to pick pieces that I know I can pair multiple different ways over and over without looking like I'm wearing the same outfit. Plus, comfort is so important to me!


I've gathered the 5 must have items you need in your teacher wardrobe that will give you endless outfit opportunities. You can easily add any item that you love to your cart by clicking the links or photos.

1. Graphic tee

I'm obsessed with this inclusive graphic tee paired with these white earrings! This is the perfect casual Friday look. Paired with a white sneaker and I am set for the day. I could also add a blazer and black booties to dress the look up a bit.



2. Patterned Midi Skirt

A plain or patterned midi skirt is the key to a great teacher wardrobe-- you have so many options! I love pairing my midi skirts with booties or white sneakers, boyfriend cardigans, denim jackets, and graphic tees.


For a classier look, I styled this midi skirt with a mesh sleeve top that I cannot stop wearing! It is so comfortable and flattering on my hard-to-dress arms.


Lastly, I paired this all over print midi skirt with a bold colored top. You can easily add a jacket or cardigan overtop as well.



3. Neutral Blazer

A neutral blazer can dress anything up and give all outfits a more polished look. You can put it over a dress, skirt outfit, and even pair it with jeans. (I wore this one overtop my all time favorite body suit)





4. Plain top or bodysuit

This one goes without saying! Any plain top can be tucked into your dress pants or skirt and layered with a cardigan, denim jacket, or blazer! These pieces will give you so much longevity! These are staple pieces in your wardrobe and it's worth it to invest in a piece that you love!



5. Denim jacket or shacket for layering

A good denim jacket will change your life! I have multiple lengths in multiple colors, but my light wash jackets that are not cropped give me the most bang for my buck.

Button-up shackets and flannels are great for layering but also look great buttoned up and tucked in on their own. Investing in a jacket you love will give your work and play outfits so many more options!

I lean on lengthier jackets for a more relaxed, comfortable look.


This outfit paired with Chelsea boots or tan booties makes the perfect fall look for teachers!
