Great scrubs outfits for male nurses
Don’t be shy, gentlemen; even you can use some fashion advice when it comes to putting your scrubs outfits together.
Here, a guide for scrubs combinations that look great and are easy to coordinate. It was put together by one of Hollyood’s top stylists, who, in costuming for multiple sitcoms, is known for making “real” bodies look terrific.
Drawstring Pants with Basic Tunic
I like this pair of drawstring bottoms because of the loose fit, which is always comfortable and important for your workday. Check them out in Hunter green:
Wear a long-sleeve tee with the short-sleeve scrub top for a hip look to mix it up a bit:
My other favorite colors in this style are black, navy, khaki, royal blue, teal and ciel (light blue).
A tip on shopping for color: There are more choices than ever these days. If the never-ending options become overwhelming, simplify your search by looking for your favorite colors that you know you’re comfortable wearing.
Another option that’s comfortable and functional is the cargo pant with cargo pockets, cell phone pocket and outside scissors pocket. It’s both convenient and stylish (also comes in tall!)
The most common colors, black, navy, olive, white are great, but other popular colors for this style include Caribbean blue, chocolate, galaxy blue, grape, grey, hunter, khaki, new eggplant, pewter, and royal.
Pair the pants with a polo top. You can find a great selection at Target.
For you sports fans, you can proudly display your allegiance at work with these fun tops (living in L.A., I couldn’t help but show the L.A. Dodgers top!):
If you like, wear a t-shirt under your scrubs top. We like the ones from American Apparel.
Camouflage is one print that isn’t too busy and can look great on any guy. The faded camouflage background with the MASH lettering is fun without being too crazy. You can match the bottom with camo, too, or go with a solid pant:
Okay, that’s it. With just a few simple steps, you too will be on your way to looking your best at work. Happy shopping!
