Fierce Fashion Tips for Teachers on a Budget
Teachers have it rough sometimes. But they don’t have to look it! Teachers can be stylish and fashionable too, (believe it or not!). Here are some really great fashion tips for teachers.
Tip #1) School ID Discount
There are a few stores that give discounts just for being a teacher! J.Crew and Ann Taylor are two major retailers that offer teacher deals.
Tip #2) Build on Basics
Create a new wardrobe with multi-use items that can be worn a multitude of ways. I’m aware that buying a boring dress or common white blouse doesn’t sound very thrilling, but if you think of these staple items as a clothing canvas that can be styled many unique ways, it opens up a world of opportunity.
Tip #3) Thrift Stores are your friend
I know thrift stores don’t give discounts but don’t overlook the value of a good ole second-hand store. You will find tons of great clothing and lots of value.
Tip #4) Vintage Rocks!
I can’t tell you how many fashion bloggers I’ve followed that LOVE the vintage look and I can see why! The clothing is awesome.
Tip #5) Online Sales Aren’t Just a Myth
Online retailers are realizing that it’s not just the rich who deserve the sales, the rest of us do too! There are a few retailers like J.Crew who give discounts to teachers when clothing is bought online.
Tip #6) Teacher-Appropriate Trends
Once you begin to dabble in stylists, there will be certain trends that will emerge that inspire and excite you. Go for it! Embrace the trends, but do remember to look age-appropriate.
Tip #7) Comfy Shoes Don’t Have to Be Ugly
All though high heels and dress shoes make your gams look great. Don’t think you can make it through the day with a toothpick under your heel and not feel it! I’m not saying get ugly shoe because they are comfortable but I am saying get comfy shoes that look and feel great at the same time.
