Show Off Your Shape: Radiant Rectangles! http://polyv.re/1kHzBmR

If you are a Rectangle or have a straight shape you probably see yourself with strong, broad shoulders, proportional hips and the lack of a highly defined waist. Show Off your shape by following some quick tips and tricks for your scrub wardrobe:

o Do: Wear a jacket to “break up” the shape and create a more defined waist

o Do: Select styles that cinch at the middle but flare out at the bottom to boost curves, like boot-cut pants which give the impression of all-around shapeliness

o Don’t: Pick anything too flowy or unstructured.

o Try: Ruffles, fluttery sleeves, and ruching help to add volume to bust and shoulders, which subsequently adds definition to the waist

Uniform Advantage secures Exclusivity for Koi’s and Med Couture’s 2 Newest Spring Colors

Capture

Uniform Advantage secures early exclusives for Koi’s and Med Couture’s 2 newest colors in their spring collection. For additional information about Koi and Med Couture Scrubs and the different styles and colors offered, please visit www.UniformAdvantage.com.

Koi and Med Couture have been part of Uniform Advantage’s (UA) family for 5 and 6 years respectively and have given UA exclusivity for their 2 newest colors this spring. Koi will be featuring Plum and Grape colors and Med Couture will be launching Blush and Marine Blue colors. UA has them exclusively until August 2014 and these are currently displayed in Uniform Advantage’s Spring 2014 catalog.

Koi’s Inspiration

Koi is known for their trendy and fashionable designs and their two newest colors, Plum and Grape, reflect just that. The colors were chosen for their beautiful characteristics and glamorous appeal. Grape is a deep, rich, elegant color. Plum is a bright color with a hint of fuchsia that was inspired by Koi’s President, Kathy Peterson’s trip to India. Both colors are flattering for all complexions. Their Katelyn and Naomi tops and Lindsey pants will be available at UA in these exclusive colors. Also new to UA, is their Kathryn Wild Thing print top. It’s one of their favorites of the season. It incorporates two of the designer’s favorite things: animal prints and shades of purple.

Med Couture’s Inspiration

Med Couture’s fabrics are stretchy and very comfortable and provide a great fit for our medical professionals for their long work days.  The colors for Spring consist of a combination of vibrant shades of Pink and Turquoise. Blush is a medium bright tone of Pink and contrasts nicely with Marine Blue, a colorful shade of Turquoise. These are very trendy and wearable colors for the season and these shades were created as similar ones have done very well in the past for both Med Couture and UA. The coordinating prints are equally tasteful and appealing to all nurses, young and mature.

What new colors would you like to see come to UA? Are there some colors that you just can’t live without!?

How to Choose Colors that Look Great on You

Why is it that every time you wear that red scrub top everyone comments on how great you look?  Have you ever noticed how a certain outfit can make you feel energized, pretty, and more self confident?  Believe it or not, there may be a science behind why you look and feel great in certain colors.

To determine which colors are most becoming on you, you must first determine which “season” you belong within:  Winter, Summer, Spring, or Autumn.  To do this, you must start by examining the contrast between your skin, eye and hair color.  One trick to identify your natural skin tone is to look at the veins on the inside of your arm.  “Warm” skin has a yellow or golden tone while the veins appear green.  “Cool” skin has a red or pink tone and the veins appear blue. 

Once you figure out whether you are “warm” or “cool”, the next step is to determine if you are “clear” or “muted”.  A person with clear skin typically has a high contrast between their skin tone, hair and eyes.  Their skin may have somewhat of a translucent quality.  Muted skin will not have much contrast.  Although you may see ash tones, it will appear softer in color than a clear skin tone. 

Now that you’ve figured out whether your skin is cool or warm, clear or muted, let’s look at which Season you belong within.

Winter: Winter skin is cool and clear.  Winters look best in jewel tones, icy pastels, true white, true black, navy blue, deep reds, bright pinks, and cool grays.  Winters will shine in our UA Butter Soft Women’s Solid Mandarin Collar Snap Front Scrub Top in Tutti-frutti.  With its stylish mandarin collar and form fitting front tucks, it is sure to flatter many Winter body shapes.  Another great style for Winters is our UA28 Swirl Navy Mock Wrap Scrub Top.  It is sure to please with deep navy and true white swirls complemented with true red trim – the perfect Winter palette.  The side empire waist tie provides a comfortable, adjustable fit.

Summer:  Those with summer skin tones appear cool and muted.  The best choices for Summers are: pastels, muted colors and neutral colors such as lavender, rose, pale yellow and ceil blue.  UA’s Ruffle Trim Empire Mock Wrap top in Cloud is a lovely choice for Summers.  The elasticized empire waist is flattering on everyone and the side ties allow for a perfect fit.  Our print pick for Summers is the UA194 Petal Perfect Dolphin Grey Scallop Neck top.  With its floral border print, scallop neckline, and bubble gum trim, you are sure to get lots of flattering remarks.

Spring:  Favorite colors for Springs are: soft pastels, peaches, khaki, coral, golden yellows, aquas, and peaches.  Springs will look sassy and smart in the UA Butter Soft V-Neck Tricolor scrub top in Party Peach.   The deep triangle side seam pockets provide lots of storage room and the back waist drawstring provides a customizable flattering fit.  We think you’ll feel so great in Party Peach that we also recommend our UA Women’s Plaid Party Peach Print Mock Wrap Scrub Top in a cotton/spandex blend.   You might even find yourself throwing on a pair of jeans with it on the weekends!

Autumn:  Autumns thrive in rich or muted earth tones including colors like: gold, olive, chestnut brown, burnt orange, and caramel.  Our classic UA Butter Soft Women’s Solid Mock Wrap Scrub Top With Side Tie in Olivetta is sure to compliment your Autumn palette.  Side slits allow for easy movement and a modest v-neckline ensures a flattering fit.  Another great choice for Autumns is the UA Women’s Prairie Daisy Sedona Empire Waist scrub top.  The color Sedona will illuminate your skin and hair while the print-accented neckline draws the eye downwards creating a slimming appearance.

Now that you’ve found your Season, there a just a few key points to remember.  Many people wear colors from other season palettes and look just great – sometimes a variant of the shade can make all the difference between hot or not!  If you do happen to love a color that simply doesn’t suit you, you don’t necessarily have to ban it entirely from your wardrobe.  Instead, use it sparingly as an accent or accessory color rather than choosing it as a scrub top.  The most important thing to remember is whatever color you choose, wear it with confidence and a smile!
