    I know you've all answered the question, "What's appropriate attire for a preschool teacher?" already. You all answered it well but I would like to ask from a male's perspective what kind of clothes should I invest in?

    The other day was a water day at a school I'm volunteering at to get experience. I felt so wrong going there in shorts. Mostly I wear Jeans and a button down plaid printed shirt. However I think I should be more professional when I finally get a job. I'm thinking Dickies, black and tan and a button down short sleeve shirt in summer and long sleeve in winter.

    That type of outfit sounds fine. Honestly I think it would be fine to wear any sort of khakis/chinos/nice cargos and a polo, too.

    I've worked with men in preschool (Christian setting) and they have all worn, nice button down shirts or polo shirts with jeans, khakis or black pants, as well as nicer khaki or black shorts in the summer. We spend a lot of time outside during the summer and where we live it's too hot for pants. On water day they wore board shorts.

    I wear a school T-shirt and khaki shorts to school all year round.

    The type of outfit you are thinking is fine. It always help you in becoming presentable at any situation, when there comes a situation where you have to think about your dress and if you are wearing pants then no need to think.
