A trendy outfit can combine features of many other styles. All you need is to integrate some trendy 2020 items into your basic wardrobe.

The 2020 Fall trends include:

  • Massive tractor sole shoes
  • Faux leather clothes
  • Satin effect blazers
  • Boss-style blazers
  • Colorful ruffle blouses
  • Fanny packs belt bags

3. Sporty

sporty style

For those of you who teach younger EFL students, a sporty style might be more suitable. Wearing a pair of joggers and a long sleeve will work best, especially if you spend the whole day with one class. Usually, this type of outfit suits TEFL teachers working in international schools abroad because there are a lot of duties related to real-life situations like outdoor activities, lunch serving, free-play, etc.

Comfy style doesn’t necessarily mean wearing a track suit. It’s more about how this style makes you feel. Snuggly sweaters and soft fabrics will be your best friends if you choose a comfy outfit. Plus, it’s perfect for a rainy fall day!

And for those TEFL teachers who work with young children, comfortable clothes made of natural soft fabrics are also beneficial because you'll get a lot of hugs during the day and you don't even have to worry about your outit getting wrinkled.

5. Everyday

This type of clothing can be based on many different styles. However, the best option would be using a capsule wardrobe with basic items. This outfit is probably the most preferred choice by TEFL teachers as it is flexible, comfortable, and practical. Win, win, win!

Make sure you have:

  • 2-3 casual T-shirts of neutral colors
  • 1 pair of slack pants
  • 2-3 pairs of jeans of different cuts and colors
  • 2 skirts or shorts (midi)
  • 2 dresses (one casual, one fancy)
  • 3 sweaters
  • 4 pairs of shoes (sneakers, boots, heels/flats, sandals)
  • 2 coats (tench and wool)

6. Artsy

artsy style outfit

Sometimes it’s important to express yourself in different ways. Clothes are a great way to do that. If this is true for you, choose an artsy outfit, and show your creative TEFL teacher nature!

You can put on a printed T-shirt or choose extraordinary accessories and mix them with colorful items. Don’t be afraid to experiment but remember that you want to look stylish, not clowny.

7. Vintage

vintage outfits

A vintage outfit can be used as an outstanding look or as a part of your TEFL educational process. Get dressed like a retro-movie star and involve your students in a history-related discussion. If you teach abroad, encourage them to tell you about their grandmas’ and grandpas’ styles back in time.
