The teacher fashion guide

Dress for success!

If you're thinking of coming to teach in Thailand then don't leave home without reading our indispensable guide to cutting a dash in the classroom. How many neckties do I need? Will the pony-tail have to go? From the moment you walk in the room, you'll be turning heads and not stomachs. On no, not all five Spice Girls please!!!!


Lucky day colours

Did you know that in Thai culture, each day has a colour?

A Thai student explained to me that the Thai people have a tradition in that they believe it brings good luck to wear certain colour clothing on certain days throughout the week. They take this tradition from an astrological rule.

Postbox letter from Sarah

Don't waste your money buying pants. Maybe the school you work at will not be as strict with this policy, but unless you have overwhelming feelings about this topic, buy skirts and dresses to be on the safe side.

Blake’s theory of unnatural selection

Our unpredictable choices of mate

Give me the girl in braids, or cornrows, or secretary glasses, or a tight military uniform. Give me the girl with a cool personalised tattoo that suggests a spark of originality, or the girl who’s so confident about some part of her body that she’ll deliberately dress to show it off.
