FINALLY, a style subscription for TEACHERS!

Get excited, teachers: the first clothing subscription service designed especially for teachers is here! Teacher Style Box is targeted toward teachers in terms of style and budget-friendliness, but you don’t have to be a teacher to become a member. Today I’m sharing how Teacher Style Box works, my own experience, and best of all, a promo code to try your first month for FREE!

How It Works

Teacher Style Box is basically a clothing rental service. With free shipping and returns and unlimited exchanges, you can choose items you want to wear and swap them out at any time. Read about TSB’s higher-than-the-CDC standards for clothing cleaning between rentals. You can even purchase items you want to keep (at averages of 65-75% off retail prices!) instead of swapping them out. Here’s the drill:

  1. Go to TeacherStyleBox and set up your account.
  2. Browse 100s of styles from brands like Express, Banana Republic, LUSH, BB Dakota, Vince Camuto, and more.
  3. Add items you like to your virtual closet in your size.
  4. TSB ships you two items at a time from your closet for free.
  5. Wear them as much as you want, and/or swap them out at any time for different items (free return bag).
  6. Repeat as often as you like!

And TSB understands that being around kids all day can get messy (anyone who’s ever worn white pants to teach knows exactly what I’m talking about). So thankfully, your subscription comes with a risk-free wear-and-tear-policy that covers all accidental stains and minor damages. Personally, I LOVE the idea of being able to just send clothes back and swap them out rather than slaving over the laundry myself. One less thing, right? Bring on the glitter and paint projects!

My First Teacher Style Box!

Y’all, I have so many things in my TSB virtual style closet right now. The cool thing is, they have a “Priority” feature, so you can tag items you want to try sooner. Both of the items I tagged as priority were sent to me first (so now I’m going to head over and tag my next two priority items for when I’m ready to swap out).

My Teacher Style Box items!

I chose this adorable French Connection tee with veggies in fun colors. It’s giving me all the spring vibes. For my second item I picked this Banana Republic pleated midi SWEATER skirt. The color is bright and cheerful, and both of these pieces will mix well with my wardrobe. And, check out the purchase price on the skirt if I choose to keep it instead of sending it back: $7! Yes, $7. Pretty sure this one’s going to be a keeper.

The items I got today, as well as soooo many other cute pieces at Teacher Style Box, work so well with pieces I already own. I’ll be mixing and matching this tee and skirt in quite a bit, and I’m already contemplating purchasing these two rather than swapping them out. At these prices, it’s almost a no-brainer.

I will be regularly sharing the Teacher Style Box items I receive, so stay tuned for updates. So excited to try this new service and cut down on my laundry. I call that a win-win.

Blazer Outfits for Teachers

Easy mix and match teacher outfit combos featuring blazers

A good blazer can be a teacher’s best friend. Blazers can be layered over just about anything, from dressy pants to jeans to joggers. Plus, they can also be removed in unpredictable classroom environments when one minute it’s freezing and the next minute it’s a sauna. Today I’m sharing simple blazer teacher outfits featuring three blazer styles that I find myself going back to time and time again. But first, here are a few general tips for styling blazers.

Examples of blazer outfits for teachers

Tips for Styling Plaid Blazers

  • Push or roll up the sleeves for a more casual look.
  • Wear sneakers for a more casual look, or ankle boots, flats, sandals, or heels when dressing it up. A contrasting colored shoe usually looks good!
  • For plaid blazers, a plain white or solid colored tee is a little bit more dressy.
  • When pairing plaid blazers with graphic tees, make sure the graphic tee isn’t too “busy,” and that the colors look good with the colors in the plaid.
  • Since knit blazers are usually solid, add interest with a print, graphic, or textured top.
  • Print ants can be fun with a solid blazer, as long as the colors look okay together.
  • Keep jewelry and accessories simple.
  • For a pop of color or print, consider adding a fun belt or a short neck scarf.
  • Experiment with unexpected blazer pairings like joggers, leggings, jumpsuits, floral skirts, and dresses.

Plaid Blazer Teacher Outfits

Plaid blazers have that good ‘ole academic vibe. They’re nerdy, but cool (know what I mean?). They’re also less dressy than solid blazers, so they’re the perfect way to make jeans and sneakers look more professional. I’ve even worn a (longer) plaid blazer with leggings. Here are a few of my favorite plaid blazer looks. Click each look to shop the exact (or similar) items.

Knit Blazer Teacher Outfits

Another blazer style I love is the knit blazer. There are “sweater” blazers and more jersey-type blazers, but they’re all really comfy. Best of all, knit blazers stretch. This means they’re perfect for teachers like me who “teaches with your arms,” or anyone who has to move around a lot during the day! Here are a few of my favorite teacher outfits featuring knit blazers.

Special Blazer Teacher Outfits

Unique blazers can bring a touch of fun! By unique blazers, I mean unusual colors (think hot pink or white), prints (floral, leopard, or stripes), and materials (velvet, sequins, fur, etc.). This school year I got a dark green velvet blazer. As it turns out, I wear it a lot. Not only that, but I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it! An unexpected blazer can take your teacher outfit to the next level! Here’s a tip: when wearing a unique blazer, let the blazer take center stage. Pair it with a solid top or simple graphic tee.

Rock those blazers!

Which of those looks was your favorite? One or two well fitting, comfortable blazers can make all the difference in a teacher’s wardrobe. And, you can wear a single blazer with so many different tops and bottoms: the possibilities are endless. Happy layering, teacher friends!
