Step 1: Pick 1 “basic color” that you feel most comfortable in (whether it’s black, brown, gray, white or navy) or whichever one that you have to wear based on your team’s uniform regulations
Step 2: Find out which colors are best based on your coloring (skin tone, eye color, hair color) these are divided into either warm or cool—here are examples of each: Warm: Oranges, Reds, Yellows Cool: Blues, Greens, Purples
Step 3*: Put more emphasis on switching up your scrub tops, when you vary tops people are much more likely to notice something new and fresh vs. scrub bottoms
Step 4: Most importantly: make sure that the colors you pick are ones that you will feel confident wearing, not just because they’re “right”! Feeling good about your appearance will be the best accessory for your scrubs and put the spring in your step.
- Jackets are great for complimenting a printed top with a corresponding solid pant
- Ones that feature elastic cuffs help keep you warm in chilly air conditioned buildings and keep sleeves out of your way on the job!
