I’m a teacher, so we’re expected to dress modestly and professionally. I don’t mind it, but I do look forward to our occasional “jean days”.

I work in the creative industry so we can pretty much wear anything and I enjoy dressing up for work daily. 🙂

I’m a teacher, and I’m expected to dress professionally every day, which means basically no jeans (except on Friday if we wear a college t-shirt!).  I’m fine with it, I’m only 26 so I look not much older than my students.  Dressing up helps me look different (they all have a uniform).

I’m also a teacher, so we basically just have to wear professional clothing.  Some teachers dress up far more than others…I’m unfancy to an extreme.  We get to wear jeans every payday.  


Other teachers — do teachers wear leggings and boots to your schools?

I’m a teacher, so we mainly have to make sure we’re not over-exposed, lol. It’s frustrating trying to find dresses that look good on my body style and that are an appropriate length. We’re supposed to dress professionally most days, but Fridays are casual. However, our principal seems pretty lenient on the professional part of the dress code. Many teachers dress casually throughout the week. There have definitely been days that I just didn’t feel like dressing up and it was no issue.

I teach at a private school and *gulp* we have to wear a uniform. I dont love it (even close)…. but I’m also not spending lots of $ on my work clothes.

We used to be “business casual” but as the company grew they changed it to just casual. Some people really take the “casual” to the next level though.

@peachacid:  Well it depends on how you’re referring to wearing them. I wear thick tights/leggings under dresses in the fall/winter with boots often. I’ve seen the occasional teacher wear long tunics over leggings, but I don’t find it particularly professional.

We do – business appropriate attire – suits, skirts, or dresses, and the men all wear ties.  I like it; it makes the enviornment more professional.

@lovelyinside:  Business casual for the office workers – the Shop and Maintenance guys wear jeans with a t-shirt bearing the company logo.

We have a business casual dress code with an emphasis on casual in my department. I don’t mind it- I find dress pants more comfortable than most jeans.

I’m a student teacher, so I have to dress semi-professionally and modestly. Since I’m in kindergarten, it’s also important that I wear things I can comfortably move around in. The school I’m placed in is actually really casual – I saw the principal in leggings, a tunic-y button down, and boots once – so I don’t worry too much about what I wear.
