It’s cold outside! Stay toasty on your commute and throughout your shift with some well-chosen layers, specifically designed to keep you warm while feeling fresh and comfortable. Whether you prefer an extra layer under your scrubs or a purpose-built topper, here’s what to look for this winter.NNT_AW22_Shot_10
Ace your base

It’s important to ensure your foundation layer offers breathability and freshness. Here, natural fibres are key and pure cotton will work as hard as you do. You’ll also need a slim-fit silhouette that can sit seamlessly under scrubs or your healthcare uniform for a neat finish. Consider the custom-designed Harris Anti-Bacterial Base Layer Short Sleeve Tee for men, or the Vine version for women. Their 100% cotton fabrication is soft and comfy and comes coated with a high-tech antibacterial finish for lasting freshness.

Prefer a long sleeve option? Look to our Long Sleeve Knit Jumper. Crafted from washable cotton, it features a soft round neck and wide hemline, making it super easy to slip on and tuck in when required.

Get top marks

We love the versatility of a vest. It’ll keep your core cosy while giving you plenty of room to move. It’s also easy to slip on, zip and go. Our classic Puffer Vest comes in styles for men and women and is cleverly crafted from machine-washable fill, making it ideal for healthcare environments. It’s also water resistant, so it’ll protect you from the weather when you’re making the dash to work.

Or for something a little lighter, a fleece option is ideal. It’s both warm and washable; just look out for a version with inbuilt stretch for extra comfort. The Bonded Fleece Vest for women or the Men’s Bonded Fleece Vest are designed for demanding environments and feature super soft lining for a hint of luxury.

For something more polished, a washable wool blend looks great while ensuring functionality. Think of our V-Neck Cardigan as your go-to top layer when it’s cool. It’s knitted from a hardworking Merino wool blend that’s easy to care for, while the smart classic fit sits easily over your regular uniform. It’s a piece you’ll turn to time and again.

Smart fabrics and work-ready cuts are key to looking and feeling good this winter. Don’t make staying warm an afterthought; update your wardrobe essentials from our healthcare-inspired range now.
