Animal Print + Stripes
Stripes and animal print: a favorite combination for this trendy teacher. There's something so simple, yet fashion-forward about this combination. It isn't too "in your face" and you can still remain professional with this pairing. Try darker colors or a brown/black to ground the look. When you get too colorful, it can easily go wrong. I also liked adding different textures (shoes are faux-pony hair, and the hardware studded details add important textural elements. Students really liked this look, teachers did too! It just goes to show that attire is important when you are teaching lessons in literature, or how to present yourself in a professional world. Both are important lessons for our students today.
