Look 10 pounds slimmer in your scrubs
With summer right around the corner, now is the time to rethink your scrubs so you can look your best.
Here are 5 easy, surefire “industry” tricks to make you look much thinner without dieting or stepping into the gym.
1. Say yes to monochrome
Dressing in monochrome scrubs is the first and most important step to help create a longer, leaner line. Dressing in one color gives the illusion of looking thinner because of the continuous color; it doesn’t break up the vertical line like wearing two different colors can.
Another way to accentuate your body and camouflage those trouble areas is to wear dark colors. Colors like black, brown, navy, charcoal, burgundy, deep green and purple are slimming. And always wear the styles that complement your body type. This scrub top with the feminine scoop neck is a great way to wear the monochromatic color combinations. The black, brown and navy are excellent choices.
I like this solid-color warm-up jacket with a pair of the Skechers pants in a matching color.

Writing for the Post has been great, but I haven’t been able to use my expertise in fashion. Writing for Scrubs gives me the opportunity to write and give fashion tips! A perfect combo."
