Fall and Winter Medical Uniforms Follow the Trend
Fall and Winter 2009 trends are darker than normal. The downturn of the economy has influenced this year’s colors. Two years have passed since the recession officially began. Many designers around the globe have had to modify their products by reducing the number of items in their collections, using cheaper materials, and simplifying designs in order to offer their customers something that they can afford to purchase. The designers that have not made any cut-backs have also decided to turn to the darker side. Black and grey show the mood of the times and are the dominant colors of the season.
Trends do not only go to the general public, they go to the operating room as well. This year, you can expect to see scrub-wearers in darker colors. Many scrub manufacturers are stocking up in grey tones while others are filling the shelves with solid black. Chocolate is also a big player in the color palette this year, which can look elegant and chic, and can be paired with other hues for variety. A classic look that has made a comeback this season is basic black-and-white. Elegant and formal, black scrubs laced with white stitching on the pockets look incredible this winter.
Both blue and green are always popular, and this fall and winter, we will see both colors in several variations from one end of the color spectrum to the other. Of course, many more colors will be presented over the next few months, but for now, if you have any of the above, you can consider yourself fashionable in the O.R.!
Great news for fans of plaids: plaid is in. Operating room staff can stock up on scrub hats in several different shades and colors of plaids including Carson Plaid, Kelly Plaid, Rutherford Plaid, and many more. Have fun with the colors this fall and winter. The ‘in’ colors may be dark, but you can still light up the room.
