Just because you have to wear a uniform to work, it doesn’t mean it can’t be on trend! There are plenty of ways to personalize your healthcare and beauty uniform, whether that’s colors, badges, styles, or fits. Here are some hints to keep your uniform looking fashion-forward that you can try out for yourself – just make sure you adhere to your workplace uniform policy.
Tunics and Shirts
There is a huge range of styles to choose from when it comes to uniforms. It’s important to always choose items that your workplace permits and that’s suitable for your role, but within this, you may be able to find a style that’s perfect for you. In just scrubs clothing alone, beauticians or care workers could choose from a range of different tunic styles. Do you prefer buttons, zips, or pullovers? Pockets are always a useful addition, too, allowing you to keep everything you need within arm’s reach. A V-neck is the most common tunic style, with either wrap around collar detail and contrast trim or single tone. Different varieties are available to suit your body type and job requirements – light or mid-weight, and stretch materials, which provide extra comfort. Multiple colors also allow you to define your roles within the workplace, making you easily identifiable by colleagues.
Comfortable and easy to move in, trousers have replaced dresses and skirts as a popular option for female healthcare workers. There are plenty of styles and fits to choose from, allowing you to find something stylish yet practical. Strait, bootcut or slim leg trouser styles are all very popular and work with different body types and shapes. They are also available with belt loops or elasticated waists for extra comfort and improved fit.
You can add trendy touches to your uniform through accessories, such as fob watches and colourful lanyards. Gel fobs are a great way to add a pop of color to your uniform and are available in a range of colors, prints, and sizes. The gel material also makes them very easy to clean and maintain. Why not start a collection and try out some festive themes in time for Christmas? Lanyards are another accessory that you can have fun with – again there’s plenty of colors and prints out there! It’s easy to end up wearing the same thing every day and looking the same as everyone else, so these small additions can really help you stand out and show off your personality. What you choose to wear and how you present yourself can really make a huge difference to how you and those around you feel.
