You wear scrubs all year, and generally, they are pretty comfortable during the moderate and warmer months. But what about the colder months? November is finally here, and with it comes a temperature drop and those first snows and frosts.
So, how do you modify your scrubs to keep you warm and cozy all fall and winter long?
We’ve got you covered! Look no further than below for the only tips you’ll need this season to keep you feeling and looking great all-shift-long.
One of the easiest ways to stay warm during the colder months is by layering your scrubs. Keep some solid-colored cotton or thermal long-sleeved shirts on hand so you can easily layer for warmth. You can also snag some fun patterns for when you want to add an extra dash of style!
