Whether you work in a hospital, a private medical practice or a nursing home, maintaining a personal sense of style in the medical arena might be a little challenging. Sure, there are those medical professionals who wear suits, ties, pumps and silk blouses. However, for the most part, the attire seems to be heavily dominated by hospital scrubs and dickies lab coats. If you are a woman who is particular about her style and really still wants to convey a sense of personal fashion in the medical workplace, don't lose hope. There are still ways to add fun pops of fashion into your medical wardrobe.
Yes, scrubs will more than likely be a major part of the wardrobe. However, there are lots of hospital scrubs that come in fun colors. In addition to the fun colors, there are scrubs that come in different patterns and cuts. For a more feminine look, consider trying the lines that are more feminine. Another way to infuse style is through the prints of the scrubs you choose. If you're a fan of florals, clouds or rainbows, there are tons of scrubs with patterns like these.
Shoes are a great way to convey personal style. Many medical professionals love the Crocs brand of shoes because they are so comfortable. If you prefer these comfy shoes, the colors and styles of these shoes run the gamut. Don't get locked into one particular style. Additionally, if you prefer sneakers, purchase sneakers that have insoles are inserted. If you can't seem to find one with the insoles already inside, just purchase the insoles separately and install them on your own. All the major brands of sneakers carry incredibly fashionable and totally customizable sneaker options and colors. Footwear is another perfect way to add some pizzazz to your medical attire.
Accessories usually make any outfit and/or take it to the next level. It's important to make sure you don't have loose jewelry that can get in the way of your work, but choose discreet options like a pair of gold, diamond or silver studs. A bright pair of eyeglasses works to create a different look. If you love getting manicures, choose interesting colors like blues, pinks, or yellows. A color that represents your style always works well. The same applies to your makeup. Your makeup is a strong accessory on its own. A strong red lip or a lovely winged eyeliner makes bold and fashionable statements as well!
