I wear black jeans to work on most days. Jeans for me generally means skinny jeans. I know this is tabboo for some teachers, but I personally don’t really see a problem with it. As long as they’re dark, they could just be plain old black pants. The only difference between my jeans and some other teacher’s pants are the material. At least, that’s how I rationalize it. Sometimes, I’ll even wear blue jeans. Not often, but occasionally. But what about white jeans? I asked B the other night if I should wear white jeans to school. I thought they’d look really cute with this blue silk top I bought at Madewell recently (on super sale – extra 40% off – and with my teacher discount). I knew I wouldn’t wear them anyways, because white jeans, to me, veer into the “probably shouldn’t” territory. But I thought I’d ask his opinion anyway. He said very bluntly, “white jeans are not appropriate for teachers”.
Is that true? Who says? Why? What do you guys think? Are white jeans taboo for teachers and why? Are jeans in general “not appropriate”? Be sure to answer this prompt with a claim, evidence and analysis. Just kidding!
