Like many of you, I have tons of respect for our teachers and all that they do for our kids. We are so very fortunate to have a quite a few teachers in the GYPO community. This time of the year, for all that they do, I try to make back to school an easier transition for them. One small way I can do that is by helping them out with what to wear for the perfect teacher outfits!
Today I’m partnering with J. Crew Factory with some “wear it now” and “wear it later” looks just for our hard working teachers! If you haven’t checked it out yet, J. Crew Factory is the perfect shopping destination for teachers. Their pieces are classic, comfortable, high quality and affordable. Plus they offer a teacher discount every day! Teachers (and college students too) get an extra 15% off every J. Crew Factory purchase with a valid ID. Click here to verify eligibility and you’re good to go!
These teacher outfits do double duty for the transition from summer to fall. You can wear them now as is and add on some layers later when the temps start to drop.
Sizing Tip: All pieces fit true to size. I’m wearing a size 2 or XS in all items and am 5’4″ and 125 lbs.
Day One – Wear it Now
The only thing better than a great shirt dress is one that has POCKETS! This dress is so soft and comfortable and it doesn’t turn into a wrinkled mess when you sit down.

Day One – Wear it Later
Add a denim jacket to take off the chill and up the cool. This jacket is an awesome length and hits at the right spot on the hip.

Day Two – Wear it Now
The ruffled sleeves on this dress are all the embellishment it needs. Add a necklace and flats and ta da! Instant outfit. You’ll want more than one color!

Day Three – Wear it Now
This fun pleated floral skirt is just right with a super soft chambray button down. This is my favorite chambray shirt EVER! The fit is perfect.

Day Three – Wear it Later
Swap the chambray for a white oxford shirt and layer up with a cotton utility jacket.

Day Four – Wear it Now and Later
This outfit already has double duty built right in! Just take off the chambray blazer on warmer days – a white oxford shirt and navy pants always look sharp.

Day Five – Wear it Now
Casual Friday calls for soft chambray and denim. These gray skinny jeans fit great and are oh so comfortable with just the right amount of stretch to keep their shape.

Day Five – Wear it Later
Just add a quilted gingham vest for instant warmth and style! This one isn’t too bulky.
