The school holidays are nearly over for some of us and it’s time to get your teaching wardrobe autumn/winter ready.
If you have been eyeing off autumn/winter pieces and are waiting until the temperature drops further, you actually need to grab them now.
Most of our fashion trends come from the northern hemisphere and by the time they make their way down to us, we have transferred to a completely different season. When winter arrives, summer stock will be lining our favourite stores.
So what do you need to do to your teaching wardrobe to make it ready for AW17? (autumn winter 2017)
The first thing you need to do is rotate your wardrobe. Place all of your summery pieces to the bag or vac seal it and bring your cosy pieces to the front. You want to make getting ready in the morning as painless as possible.
One of my top time saving tips is to plan your wardrobe for the week ahead. Set aside time on the weekend (60 mins max) and plan your Monday to Friday looks. Plan the whole outfit too, from your accessories all the way down to your shoes.
Have these outfits ready on a separate rack to your wardrobe. If you don’t have the space for this, then place all of these planned outfits in an easy to get to spot in your wardrobe. Kmart have great racks that are easy to assemble and start from $10. Find them here.
Once you have rotated your wardrobe and set aside your outfit planning space, it’s time to start look at what pieces you can add to wardrobe to update for the season.
So what trends are coming through?
This season, you’ll be seeing:
- Red – It doesn’t matter what it is, if it’s red, you need it. Red is not for the faint hearted, so if you just can’t do it, opt for wine or burgundy instead.
- Military Blazer – What you need if you want your teacher look to be uber chic without even trying. The right option can be styled a multitude of different ways. From adding another layer to a basic ensemble or creating edge to a more feminie outfit.
- Longline Vest – The ultimate layering tool for the season. It can be teamed back with dresses and a heel or jeans and knee high boots, however, this trend may not be for everyone though. So be sure to check the length before you buy.
