7 Dresses for Teachers That are Classy, Comfortable + Completely Affordable

This post: Professional outfits for teachers that won’t break the bank.

This school year just might feel normal, am I right?

Fingers crossed, of course!

If you’re a teacher, then you’re probably heading back to class in a few weeks (goodbye, Zoom!). And of course that means you’ll need an amazing wardrobe to carry you through the new school year.

I’ve got some stylish teacher outfit ideas for you today.

Full disclosure: I’m a home educator, which means I can “teach” in my pjs.

But I don’t!

I love dressing well, even if I’m at home with my kids all day. For the past three years, I tutored + directed at our Classical Conversations homeschool community, so I do know that teacher outfits need to be three things:

  • comfortable
  • easy to wear + wash
  • stylish (because who wants to look boring?)

So this post is a nod to you amazing teachers… + your wardrobes. xoxo

The pieces I’ve curated for this post are washable, easy to move around in, + all of them cost less than $70 (most are in the $40 to $50 price range).

I’ve also included a few accessory or beauty products to polish off your outfit.

Teacher style #1. Blouson Midi Dress, by Wayf at Nordstrom.

This gauzy dress is perfectly feminine +soft! The sleeves + hem length provide great coverage without being too hot (if you want something to bring up the neckline consider wearing a Halftee under the dress).
