How to Stay Warm If You Wear Scrubs To Work

Layers are the key.

If you are always cold at work and you wear scrubs, there are so many layering options to keep you warm during a long shift. Consider working in one or more of the following pieces:

    • soft long sleeve knit tees (worn under your scrub top)
    • long sleeve scrub tops (substitute for short sleeve scrub top)
    • scrub jackets (worn over your scrub top)
    • scrub vests (worn over your scrub top or tee)
    • scrub hoodies (worn over your scrub top)

Uniform Advantage has what you need! Let’s look at all your layering options in more detail. Read on and find the layering solutions that work for you!

  1. I wash my hands a lot. I wear 3/4 length sleeve shirt under my scrub top. Stay warm and no wet sleeves. I also will wear thin leggings under my scrub pants. Our building stays cool all the time.
