I've been teaching a long time, but am moving from a school which was pretty laid back (clumpy boots and denim were fine, for example) to a school where everything looks a lot smarter!
I have lots of boots-tan, black and purple (maybe won't wear those ones!), skirts and dresses-Fat Face/White Stuff type-so funky but still relatively ok and some nice tops. I've always worn the tops with fairly skinny black trousers and brown/tan mid-calf boots but I have a feeling my trousers might be a bit tight and a bit jeggingy!
usually black/ grey smart trousers and tunics/ blousers/ stretchy tops. Am year 1 and can often be covered in glue/ paint etc so tend to stick to supermarket type stuff or sale stuff. shoes had some lovely clumpy boots last year but also flat black ones or flat ankle boots.
I teach ppa covering reception through to year 6.. Find it quite hard in the summer but autumn winter would be Jumper dresses with leggings & boots Tunic style tops Wrap dresses ( with a vest or long sleeved top underneath) with thick tights. I don't really wear trousers much unless it's 3/4 length linen ones in the summer. Mainly leggings or tights. Also like the h&m basics range of legging material skirt type things that cover the bum area over leggings.. Does that make sense?! My main criteria is that my boobs don't fall out when I lean over to explain something and that I can bend over without showing anything!!
Tunics/short dresses with leggings, Docs or other boots. Pretty lax dress code at my place - as long as your tits and arse don't hang out. No blue denim but black jeans are OK. Like girlsyearapart, have to make sure that no-one gets an eyeful of cleavage when I lean over.
I do primary supply and I have a basic uniform.. black or grey trousers. Flowery and loose tops which are long as when I reach up you don't see my fleshy belly. Often wear a dark vest underneath too. No long skirts as I kept getting stuck under the chair legs!!
