Fall Fashion for Scrub Wearing Professionals
Brisk mornings, colorful trees, and apple cider signal the presence of fall. In the fashion industry, it is marked by longer clothing, richer colors, and layers - and yes - even those who wear scrubs every day can see the change in fashion!
Dark and rich solid colors, such as Wine, are perfect for the season, and can be found in most product lines. Cherokee has picked up on the color memo for the fall season, adopting Poppy and Pumpkin as new color choices for their core stretch line. Grab one of these new colors and be the first at your workplace to be showing off the autumn influence!
Of course, new prints are to be expected - and if you are allowed to wear them at your workplace, you are the envy of those with strict dress codes. Keep your eyes out for orange and brown patterns - many featuring Halloween themes. Also, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, look for breast cancer tops to show your support!
Other companies are being more discrete in their bold color choices, choosing instead to accentuate the often small, overlooked parts of a scrub set. Code Happy is featuring bold colors on their zipper pulls, bungee loops, and hidden key clasps. HeartSoul has introduced removable logo charm carabiners to their fall collection. A little less discrete than Code Happy, these charm carabiners dangle from the side of the scrub for a fashionable touch.
Color and accent pieces aside, the medical professional's wardrobe is getting longer -and warmer! HeartSoul has introduced longer socks for warmth, along with new jackets for layering. Cherokee and Dickies also have a plentiful assortment of scrub jackets to choose from to keep the chill away - and, new this season, Sanibel will release their own line of scrub jackets!
The biggest trend across the board is the shift to antimicrobial technology, which is getting increasingly more popular. Code Happy, Cherokee, and HeartSoul are heavily emphasizing its importance and integrating it into many of their styles. This technology is important for keeping healthcare professionals as least likely as possible to contract any potential microbes.
So, stuff your summer colors and lightweight scrubs away and move toward the autumn fashion - warmer, richer, and microbe-less!
