Do You Need a Faster Morning Routine? Here Are 4 Easy Work Uniform Examples Based on Industry
If you’re not a morning person, dressing for work can be difficult. Here are 4 work uniform examples that are easy to choose, based on industry.
Three in ten Americans spend an average of one week a year getting ready for work.
While this does not sound like that much time: the average American spends 90,360 of their life working. That is like working twenty-fours a day, seven days a week, for over a decade of their lives.
So, for those of us who are not morning people, or for those of us who do not want to spend an average of 43 weeks of our lives getting ready: here are some quick and basic tips for work uniforms based on your niche.
The Medical Field: Work Uniforms in a Breeze
The luckiest of all fields. Your uniform is essentially going from your evening pajamas to your work pjs. But just because scrubs tend to be comfortable, doesn’t mean you can go to work looking like a hot mess.
So, what is your safe bet? Choosing scrubs tops and bottoms that work well together, but also match when mismatched. Choosing colors from a neutral palette [whites, beiges, blacks, and darker blues] will allow you to grab a top and a bottom on the go without having to worry about things looking incompatible.
And just because you are going neutral on tones doesn’t mean you have to look or feel blase. Find some unique jewelry pieces that you really like and match them with your day-to-day ensemble.
Wearing neutral tones with your accessories will make them the focus feature of all your work ensembles (and it will make you look put together with little effort).
Off to The Office
Officewear can be a hassle. Not only do you have to look presentable, but you also have to professional to your colleagues and superiors.
There are two failproof tips to do this:
- Never underestimate the power of a dress.
- Black and white always look classy when paired together.
When a lot of us think dresses, we think that is too time-consuming. But, on the contrary. A dress is an entire outfit in one piece. And whether you choose to dress it up with heels or make it comfy with a good pair of dress flats: a dress is a surefire look that says, “I put some time into how I look” (even if you didn’t).
From Audrey Hepburn to Marilyn Monroe to Angelina Jolie: black and white ensembles give of the perspective that you are pure class. So, if you are someone who hates getting ready in the morning, buy ten or so really great black and white pieces. No matter what you wear (white on white, black on black, or white on black), you will give off a sense of pristine and look like you have everything together.
The Creative Type
Whether you are a teacher, a graphic designer, or a comic book illustrator: there is something to be said about the more eclectic professions and what the people in them wear.
The best advice to give to anyone in this field: always choose pieces that are bold and creative, but comfortable. Remember: layers are your best friend. Think maxi dresses, flowing skirts, long sweaters, Chanel chic broaches, and cardigans.
If you are an art teacher or do something constantly hands-on, maybe go with that women’s Rosie the Riveter look.
You do want to look stylish, after all. But with all the standing and moving around you do at work: your style should never take away from your comfort.
Dressing For One
As women, there are already so many things one has to do in a day. Why complicate it with adding stress to your already hectic mornings?
Get a few signature and go-to pieces, and stick with them. Regardless of your field, your work uniform should be something you find confidence and comfort in.
