The Fashionable Side of Medicine: Medical Scrubs

Wednesday, November 21, 2018


Medical attire has come a long way since the 1930’s and 1940’s when professionals in the healthcare industry were limited to similar style, similar colors, and a similar look all around. With access to thousands of retailers and countless styles, colors, and prints, workers in the medical field and medical scrub enthusiasts have never had more of a selection.

This fashion buffet of selection can leave anybody overwhelmed with options and looking for the right fit amid fashion fabulous and fashion nightmare.

When selecting a new outfit for your medical profession it is import to remember a few key points that will always keep you on track:

Choosing a color that fits and compliments you and your skin:

Not everybody looks flattering in lime green! While there are many bright, warm, and interesting colors to choose from it is important to match the color you wear with the skin that will be wearing it. Navy is a good neutral color for everyone along with purple.  If you feature cooler undertones in your skin then greens, royals, and grays are more your style. Warmer undertones then can look better with reds, whites, and pinks.

While this little tip can help bring out your inner glow better, at the end of the day, you can rock any color you want!

Choosing a size or fit that looks best on your body:

The next thing after you know what color scrubs you're looking for, is finding what size you need. Most of us already know where we fall on the sizing spectrum, but with medical scrubs it is even more important to get the right fit since no matter your line of work, they are your professional apparel. Scrubs that are too loose often give you a baggier figure while scrubs that are too tight can crease and wrinkle more and give you a less professional look. Remember that what looks good will look even better on you when it fits just right.

Choosing hair and accessories with your scrubs:

After you’ve got your outfit it’s important to top it off by choosing the perfect way to compliment it. Anyone can match their hair tie with their scrubs color, but it’s important to remember the hairstyle itself compliments you most. Pick a style that not only compliments for your face type but also is suitable for your work environment. Completing your look with a watch and some cute stud earrings is a good choice also. Just don’t go overboard as job appropriateness is key once again!

With these main three factors anyone can be dressing like a “fashionista” in their scrubs and catering to the color, fit, and look that suits them best.
