Men's Scrubs: Cool, Sexy Styles
Scrubs don’t have to look like factory issued uniforms if you don’t want them to. Doctors, male nurses, RT’s, MT’s and other health care professionals have loads of options today. Even if you work in a color-coded environment where you have to wear a specific color, often times your supervisor will let you get something modern as long as it doesn’t stand out too much. I’ve previously mentioned that female nurses should be allowed to dress femininely if they choose – therefore it’s only fair I encourage men to dress in a way that flatters them, as well. Obviously, you don’t have to; if you prefer androgynous scrubs, that’s cool. Nevertheless, I see no reason why people can’t feel sexy in their work clothes, even if they’re just scrubs. And if you doubt men can look sexy in scrubs.. let me just say I’ve worked with some male nurses who were absolutely gorgeous, and not unlike the men in these pics!
Landau’s Contrast Pullover Top
First of all, the man in that photo is just plain hawt. Yumm. Would you look at those arms? *Sigh* This is a sexy little scrub ensemble, because it’s just so dang masculine looking. It would look great on anyone – doctor, nurse, lab tech. It comes in a variety of colors, so you should be able to blend in if need be. Just realize that women will definitely notice these scrubs. I certainly did. And if you look anything like the man in this photo, most of us would happily let you do anything you want to us.
Raglan Scrub Top
The coolest I’ve seen in this style comes from Dickies. How much trendier can you really get? Hospital scrubs that look like a skater might be wearing them. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if that trend was just around the corner. These are very boyish, very fun and very hip. Notice the sleeves are bit longer than usual – kind of nice, really, considering hospitals tend to run chilly. These would look good with long johns underneath, too.
Cherokee makes some very cool scrub sets. You can purchase a uniform with your favorite NFL, MLB, or NBA team. Or, if you’re a college football nut, Landau makes them, too. These are a great way to show your team spirit, and they’re a great ice-breaker for patients, especially kids.
Cammo Scrub Top
Cherokee makes a MASH style that lots of men have taken to. It’s typical cammo, with the word MASH stamped all over it. This gives it more of a playful look, so people won’t worry overmuch about why you’re wearing it in an indoor setting...you can also get the pants to go with it, though that might be a bit much! Comfort is the most important thing when working a floor or lab all day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look fashionable at the same time!
