Trend Alert: Scrub Jackets!
Nothing says fall like a crisp chill in the air, but that chill can make a long day of nursing a little uncomfortable. The best solution is to layer with long-sleeve shirts or jackets. And guess what? Jackets are seriously trending! This new trend to layer with a beautiful and sharp outer piece stems from the fact that a jacket is easy to slip on and off; it’s sporty; and it is perfect for any day of the week!
Check out just a few of the many stylish jacket options you can wear both at work and off hours!
Button, Zipper, or Snaps
First, you should decide which style of jacket closure you want, from buttons to snaps or a zipper. The classic and most functional for easy removal is the snap closure, as with the Dickies Xtreme Stretch Contemporary Fit Warm-Up Jacket. This white jacket has smooth feminine lines from front and back princess seams, including a variety of pockets for optimal utility. Best yet, the material can stretch four ways and lays flat with minimal to no ironing required.
A button closure allows a jacket to easily be worn partially open, as with the Med Couture Solid Warm-Up Jacket. The EZ Flex fabric is supremely soft while the rib knit sleeves and functional pocket space leaves nothing more to want!
A zippered warm-up jacket like the Infinity Antimicrobial Zip Front Warm-Up Jacket has the most sporty appeal. In fact, the contemporary fit, paneling, front cuffs and waistband result in a look that could easily be worn into the public during your days off!
Solid or Print
Each of the above scrub jacket examples are solid colors, but jackets also come in geometrical and whimsical prints to suit your unique personality! The Cherokee Flexibles Dots A Doodle Zip Front Warm-Up Jacket is naturally slimming with black side panels while still maintaining a cheery, artistic bubble pattern on a lime green background.
Closed or Open Sleeves
In the examples so far, you’ve seen both closed and open sleeves. To review, the Code Happy True To Your Heart Warmup Print Jacket is the perfect closed sleeve example. In addition to its cute blue and pink heart design, the sleeves are rib-knit to cinch around the wrists and keep your arms protected from the outside environment, including bodily fluids.
For more airflow, you can choose a jacket with open sleeves like the Jockey Modern Snap Front Scrub Jacket.
