Would You Wear Animal Print Scrubs?

So, it’s really a matter of how open-minded your place of work is. Are they going color coded and cutting out your individuality? And if not…are the type who would feel comfortable rocking animal print scrubs to work?

Think of it this way: Animal prints may go in and out of fashion, but they never fail to make a statement.

A stylish zebra pattern can say “I’m not afraid to stand out from the herd.”

A leopard pattern may send a message like “Don’t mess with me today—I’m feeling fierce!” It all depends on your attitude. One thing that animal prints never say is “Pay no attention, nothing to see here.”

So, only venture into world of exotic animal print scrubs if you enjoy getting noticed.

Here are some prints to consider adding to your work wardrobe for those days when you feel a little wild.

Little Leopard
You may have heard that you have to be careful mixing patterns (like plaid and polka dots). This top from the Code Happy throws caution to the wind with an amalgamation of hot red and leopard spots.  Keep your accessories to a minimum with this busy scrubs piece. A pair of pink stud earrings would be a nice touch that’s not too much. If you’re feeling adventurous, go for an ear cuff.

Wild Cheetah
There’s a lot going on with this top that’s hard to see with the eye-catching print distracting from the structural details. A mock wrap top features two patch pockets, double princess seams, a flattering belt at the waist, signature mesh binding at the back neck, double needle topstitching and a shirt tail hem. You could pack all the equipment for a safari onto this piece!  The print itself features a great blend of colors for women with yellow/peach or olive skin undertones.
