For every stylista there are at least two fashion victims. For those of us who are blessed to wear scrubs to work everyday, the same rule applies. Dress codes leave lots of leeway: typically only stating do’s and don’t. What about all that in-between, grey area? We’ve collected a few stereotypes of scrub style no-no’s that you have probably seen before. Know someone who commits these scrub style no-no’s?
The Creative Con:
This is someone who takes being an individual to the next level. Their creative flare, is more like an overwhelming self expression with scrubs underneath. Often seen with custom made adornments on their scrubs, lots of beaded jewelry, and other personal accents. This style no-no is more than distracting, it’s engulfing and, quite frankly, undermines their profession work.
Little Miss Sexy:
This is someone who knows their hot, and isn’t afraid to let the rest of the hospital know about it. Often seen wearing too tight, see-through, and low-cut scrubs. This person pushes the line of being too sexy in the workplace, making those around feel uncomfortable, yet she can use her “gifted areas” to get away with it.
Under-there, no underwear:
This is someone who you can see there under garments everyday and no, not by choice. With the “whale tale” thongs above their pants, or those “granny-panty” lines. Scrubs are meant to be comfortable, but seriously, we all don’t need to keep table on our co-workers’ underwear. Same applies for bra choice– these are meant to supportive, not seen.
Um, do you own a washing machine:
We all know the people who show up to work, looking a hot mess. Wrinkled, dirty, stained, ripped, or worn-out scrubs are not presentable attire. This is someone who you really wonder if they got dressed in the dark and have never seen a washing machine. I’m not talking about that one occasion you woke up late and slept in your scrubs, I’m talking about those that make this a regular habit. And if you know what I’m taking about, there’s that oh so not pleasant “B-O” to go with those messy clothes.
