Style Me Saturday: Stylish Teacher

Sarah Beth wrote me and is a kindergarten teacher in her mid-twenties. She feels as though her work wardrobe is very blah and wanted some ideas to stay fashionable, as well as comfortable on the job. She lives in Houston, so she doesn't need super thick sweaters, and she's also looking for a pair of great boots for the fall and winter (jeans are also ok as long as they are dark and have no holes/distressing). Here are some outfits that I thought might help Sarah Beth's work wardrobe feel more stylish. Click on any of the images below to purchase or for more information on each item.

Great post - thank you!

I am also a teacher (grade 5), in my mid-twenties. How would you reinterpret this look without denim? We have a strict "no jeans" dressy casual policy.

Erin, if you can find a good fit, I like to wear dark grey or navy khakis in place of jeans for the office. (I'm also in my mid-20's.)

Erin - Great question! Here's how I would change up the looks without denim.

Look #1: Tuck some skinny cords into the boots: http://www.freepeople.com/clothes-all-denim-cords/fp-super-skinny-cord/?cm_mmc=Performics-_-Affiliates-_-ShopStyle.com-_-Primary

Look #2: Love the look of this bold print paired with a simple black cowlneck (in black and white): http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?pid=791607002&tid=gosp1r&kwid=1&ap=14

Look #5: Add a cute skirt like this one in navy - http://canvas.landsend.com/pp/PleatedPocketSkirt~212079_-1.html?bcc=y&action=order_more&sku_0=::TRO&cm_mmc=Affiliate-_-DEEPLINK-_-TXT-_-xxxx&af_id=linkshare

Hope that helps!
