Cold enough for you? As bitter temps make their way across the country, Scrubs magazine has some suggestions on how to keep stylish and warm during the coldest months.
The Holly and the Ivy
How do you mix red and green without looking too much like an extra in Elf? By toning down these hues so they aren’t quite so “North Pole.” Instead, start with a deep wine red mock wrap top with contrasting black trim. Add a hunter green jacket worn open on top. Black or wine red scrubs pants finish the look.
From Day to Evening
Planning to wear your warm-up jacket all through your shift? Then why not choose one that’s a real stunner? Forget red and green. Go for a rich, royal eggplant instead. A snap front style lets you open and close the jacket throughout the day as needed for when you go from freezing cold to just mildly chilly. The shapely cut of this scrubs topper make it an elegant choice for the deep of winter. Wear it over black, white, gold, or green to match your mood.
Flip It Like It’s Hot
This is the find of the season—the cutest warm-up jacket on the market. This cardigan-style charmer has a Swiss dot pattern of white and blue on one side with blue and white pinstripes on the other. It’s a cozy, stretchy double face jersey knit for maximum snuggle factor. The waterfall lapels mean you never have to worry about losing a button or getting a zipper snagged. With patch pockets on the stripey side and the spotty side, we bet a lot of nurses are going to stuff these jackets inside and out with gear. Wear it over a crisp white scrubs top to look your best on every shift.
Sleek, Stylish and Sweet
And just perfect for Valentine's Day! While some warm-up jackets can be a little baggy, this one is definitely more sporty. The black knit side panels add shape and are visually slimming. Ribbed knit cuffs let you push up your sleeves and get to work right away. The “Unchain My Heart” print has a field of linked hearts tumbling against a black backdrop that appears to be sprinkled with snow flurries. Pair it with a shocking red or pink scrubs top underneath.
