Style syllabus: A+ looks for teachers

It’s time to head back! We invited five of our favorite bloggers, who also happen to be teachers, to create a “style syllabus” with educators in mind. But these fun fall outfits don’t just work in the classroom. They work from AM to PM for anyone who is constantly on the go. From our new EVERflex™ jeans in sizes 2-24, to easy dresses, and super-comfy booties, back to school has never looked, or felt, so good.

First Day of School: 

Our teacher bloggers agreed — on the first day back you want to look professional and feel comfortable. After all, you probably spent the summer wearing flip-flops and shorts. Your first day can be a real transition!

These sleeves are cute and have built-in AC!

This is the softest dress EVER. It feels like a sweatshirt!

I love finding the perfect “First Day of School” dress.

I love this floral dress — it’s one piece and simple to style.

Jill

This statement dress is a win in style and comfort.

On the Go:

Whether you’re running across the playground or running errands after work, you need outfits that move with you through the day and into the evening. Soft, stretchy fabrics and smart layering choices can make your favorite pieces work as hard as you do.

Black, slim-leg pants match everything, including this 24/7 striped tee.

Layla

My two teacher fashion staples are a chambray shirt and a little black dress.

Jenn

@mrscasual

These are seriously great leggings and this soft plaid shirt is the perfect length to give me coverage.

The A/C feels like it’s on “arctic” in my school. This sweater has interesting details and keeps me warm.

Michelle

@applesandabcs

Black jeggings make me feel a little more dressed up than jeans.

Day to Night:

School days can easily transition into date nights or happy hours when you start with the right outfit. No one has to know you’ve been chasing kids all day! Simply change your shoes and throw on a jacket for a pulled-together look.

Michelle

@applesandabcs

A faux leather jacket instantly elevates this look.

Brandy

@authentically.b

This classic blazer and booties pairs perfectly with soft pinstriped pants.

Jill

@hotpinkstyle55

This black scalloped dress goes from day to night with a few accessories.

Layla

@fancyfreein4th

You can never go wrong with a kimono in the color of the year.

Jenn

@mrscasual

This jacket is the perfect color for fall. Wear it with a print tank or 24/7 tank.

Parent-Teacher Conference:

Here come the parents! Get ready for the long day(s) ahead with an outfit that strikes a balance between professional and comfortable. And pretty accessories can help break the ice!

Jenn

@mrscasual

This gorgeous fall dress could also be worn to a weekend wedding.

Jill

@hotpinkstyle55

I love to show my students that you can have fun with clothes and still be professional.

Brandy

@authentically.b

I don’t have worry about a heated talk in this cool, floral dress.

Michelle

@applesandabcs

 I like to throw on a jacket to complete my look!

Layla

@fancyfreein4th

I found that perfect balance with these white jeans and flowy tank!

Fieldtrip:

Everybody on the bus! Fieldtrip days can be fun — and super exhausting. Make sure your outfit and shoes can go the distance. Think comfort meets function, meets style. And don’t forget a jacket or sweater (with lots of pockets)!

Layla

@fancyfreein4th

Pockets, comfort and layers!  It’s practical, cute and comfortable.

Michelle

@applesandabcs

Jeans and a tee are a must, along with a lightweight sweater.

Jenn

@mrscasual

This cardigan looks great coming and going (check out the lace down the back).

Jill

@hotpinkstyle55

These knit sneakers are comfy and slip on (and off on the bus).

Brandy

My kiddos will think this science-related tee is cool.
