For many of us, there’s not a dress code for work. Or, if there is, it’s a vaguely worded one like “business casual,” which means different things to different people. But, for some professions, not only is a uniform required, it’s essential to their job. A properly attired worker shows respect for the company and for the safety and importance of their day to day duties. JCPenney has a variety of styles and sizes of workwear and scrubs that’ll pass inspection at your company.
These extra-comfy looking pants and shirts seem like the best thing to get to wear to work, right? Kind of like pajamas during the day, maybe? But, there’s actually more complexity involved in choosing the right scrubs for not only the job but for each person’s comfort and style.
Scrub pants can be button-front, drawstring or elastic waist for ease of movement. Pants with cargo pockets are especially helpful when you are constantly on the move in your daily job. You may need to carry essentials around with you at all times, such as a stethoscope, pens or pencils, gloves, phone, etc.
Scrub tops are usually V-neck style and short sleeves, although you can purchase a long-sleeve underscrub shirt that fits closely to your body but provides extra warmth during colder temps. A chest pocket is also helpful as it can hold writing utensils, glasses and other small handy items.
Besides an array of colors to choose from, you can also make sure you get the features you need. Wrinkle resistance is an aesthetic feature that means a lot to clients and patients. It presents you as crisp and professional all day long, even when you’ve been running to and from patient or exam rooms, labs and up and down hallways or stairs. Opting for tag-free as well will go a long way in aiding your comfort day after day. And, because spills, messes and mishaps are inevitable in a healthcare professional’s line of work, moisture-wicking and quick-dry features are crucial to your daily comfort. (Of course, it’s always a good idea to have backup scrubs on hand nearby for those “too large to clean” stains.)
Today, durable workwear is showing up for work at more places than ever. Whether it’s inside a garage, brewery, or manufacturing facility or outside on a farm or ranch, construction site or landscaping project, workwear shirts, pants and coveralls fit right in.
Shirts consists of button-front varieties, t-shirts, flannels, Henleys or polo shirts. Breathability, stretchiness and stain resistance are all game changers when it comes to all-day comfort on the job. The weight of the fabric is important to keep you cozy during extreme temperatures. So, you can match to your company’s colors, shirts come in a rainbow of colors. These are also good to monogram with a logo or name.
Pants should be ready to move and work with you, not against you. Find plenty of choices with durable, wicking fabric that’ll stand up to stains, spills and more. Cargo pants have loads of pockets to hold all your gear and tools.
Another option is coveralls. Full-body coverage is important for many jobs, keeping your skin covered in hazardous conditions. Safety is a priority in any job, and coveralls lends itself to helping you stay on track. Many are insulated or covered with UV protection to shield you from the elements.
