Our Favorite New Scrubs and Accessories for Fall
The best scrubs for the season
Labor Day is over, the pools are closed, and the kids are back in school. Fall is officially here! There’s nothing quite like that taste of fresh apples and the little nip in the air as the leaves turn. It’s also a good time for an autumn wardrobe refresh, before the cold weather really hits. If you’re looking to add a few new items to your work wardrobe this fall, the Uniform Outlet is offering some great deals. Here’s a few of our favorite new fall scrubs and accessories.
Pockets and more pockets
Your pockets hold the essentials that get you through your longest shift, from a snack to a stethoscope. You can never have too many, which is why we love these mid-rise pants from Dickies. There are nine pockets on these tapered pants: two side patch pockets, two layered patch pockets, two side cargo pockets, one cargo pocket with a zipper, and two back pockets. In addition to all of these, there’s an instrument loop as well. You’ll definitely have room for everything you need.
Scrubs pants for men
Nursing isn’t just for women, and neither are great scrubs. More and more men are going into nursing, and they have better options for men’s scrubs than ever before as retailers continue to refine their offerings. The men’s zip fly cargo pant by Dickies has a functional drawstring, a zip fly with a button closure, and a hidden inseam gusset for an easy fit. A plethora of pockets and coverstitch detailing make this one a clear winner.
Color therapy for colder days
Fall colors are back in, and not just outside hospital walls. The mock wrap top by Cherokee comes in twenty-one gorgeous colors, so you can sport some seasonal style. A muted olive, warm wine, or brilliant red are all fashionable for fall. Plus, the Polyester/Spandex fabric blend is wrinkle and stain resistant and washes well. In these great fall colors, your scrub style will be the talk of the floor.
Comfort is king
The nights are getting colder and the air is nippy. It’s a good time of year for bonfires, warm drinks, and cozy fabrics. Keep your comfy vibe going at work in the Dickies Xtreme Stretch line of scrubs. These are some of the softest scrubs on the market, with superior breathability and elasticity. The contemporary silhouette is arresting, but it’s the proprietary fabric blend that really makes these scrubs stand out. It will almost feel like you never left your bed.
Stay warm in a jacket
There are good reasons hospitals keep the temperatures so low. It prevents the growth of certain bacteria, slows the spread of germs, and keeps everyone healthier. Still, it doesn’t feel good to be freezing on your shift. As the temperatures drop outside too, it’s time to get some new warm up jackets. We have options for men and women in stock. Try the women’s Cherokee Zip-Front Jacket in sizes from XXS to 5XL, or the men’s Cherokee Warm-up Jacket.
Keep your toes toasty
Your new fleece will go a long way to keeping you warm, but as you contend with chilly fall temperatures it’s time to make sure your feet are protected. Compression socks will do double duty, keeping your feet warm and preventing sore, swollen ankles. You probably are changing out of your nursing shoes before you go home, and it can be fun to display a splash of color with your boots. Try this pair which is sure to enliven your outfit at work and at home.
Underscrubs for Halloween
It’s no secret that underscrubs are the key to surviving freezing winter temperatures, but fall is the time to start stocking up. You can show some spooky spirit in this adorable underscrub tee. The double needle topstitching keeps the seams strong through multiple washes, while the grinning skulls and little bats are sure to make your hospital gear spook-tacular.
Donate your old scrubs
After you’ve filled your closet with new purchases, you may be wondering what to do with your old scrubs. Did you know you can donate them? There are several organizations that will take your scrubs and put them to good use, like Global Links. Global Links works with national and local officials to provide healthcare to uninsured and underinsured individuals. They also promote environmental stewardship by moving medical surplus to organizations serving those communities. It’s easy to donate your gently used scrubs by using the printable shipping label on their website.
