Dressing for your body type: 5 winter scrubs for apple-shaped nurses
Got an apple-shaped figure? Shopping for winter? We’ve got you covered with five great scrubs!
According to our helpful style tool (check it out for more great suggestions!), apple-shaped ladies should try tops in dark colors, prints, bright colors and those that accessorize the neckline for super-flattering looks. Pants that most flatter typically are dark; straight-leg, flare or wide-leg; and match the top.
Here are our top picks!
V-neck Prints Charming top: If you have narrow shoulders with more weight on your waist, hips and thighs, you can easily wear a printed top. We love this HeartSoul V-neck print top that features stretchy side panels for maximum comfort—even during the longest of shifts. The black hearts are a nice contrast to the pretty printed teal background, and would pair well with either black pants or matching teal pants. It’s a perfect shade of blue for winter!
Women’s Junior Fit Gen Flex slim drawstring scrub pant: They say that dark colors are slimming, and these wine-hued pants are a flattering and fun pick for the winter months. Make sure your pants are fitted and come all the way to the top of your shoe (but aren’t dragging on the floor!). This Dickies junior-fit, low-rise slim pant has nine (!) utility pockets for carrying all your gear and an elastic waist with an inside drawstring to keep your pants in place as you bend and stretch on the job.
Mock wrap Prints Charming top: If you carry more weight around your waist, choose tops with small patterns (like this beautiful starry print!) or embroidery above the chest. This HeartSoul mock wrap top features an interesting and unique keyhole at the neckline, drawing attention toward your face.
Jr. fit low-rise drawstring cargo pant: A flared leg can add shape to your legs and help create balance with your midsection. This junior-fit, low-rise, flare-leg pant by Cherokee in a fun holiday red features a knit waistband with an adjustable drawstring. Comfort and ease on the go…exactly what a nurse needs!
V-neck Cherokee Workwear top: For you, solid darker colors are most flattering (and seasonally appropriate in a rich wine color!). This Cherokee V-neck top features longer above-elbow-length sleeves that are perfect for the winter months and ample pocket room that includes a spot for your cell.
