1. Consider colour

While traditional blue is a classic choice, a more distinct shade can set you apart. Calming green or crisp navy are smart selections, while inky black reads sharp and sophisticated. For a totally different vibe, look to regal purple or even hot pink. These standout colours are cheerful yet capable and can brighten up the day. Consider the Women’s Bravo Scrub Top and Romeo Scrub Pant for a range of highly pigmented hues that hold their colour, wash after wash. For men, try our bestselling Carl V Neck Scrub Top for lots of options.

2. Be detail driven

Not all scrubs are created equal. Subtle detailing lends a polished appearance, while thoughtful design additions dial up the practicality. Look out for contrasting trims that can elevate simple shapes and shades. Consider the Next-Gen Antibacterial Nightingale Scrub Top with its contrasting side panels and flattering neckline, or the unisex Koller Scrub Top that features a smart stripe on its hip pockets. With an elegant, notched neckline, the Fleming Round Neck Scrub Top is another unique choice that breaks with convention while remaining ideal for busy days.

3. Think about fabric

You want a material that looks great, feels fresh to wear and washes with ease. It’s not too much to ask. Start by selecting a cotton blend – the inclusion of the natural fibre boosts breathability and comfort. A hint of elastane adds subtle stretch for extra room to move when things get busy. You can also upgrade your scrubs with NNT’s new, sustainable antibacterial finish, which offers extra protection and lasting freshness. Find it on our reimagined bestsellers, including the Next-Gen Antibacterial Curie Scrub Pant and the Next-Gen Antibacterial Koller Scrub Top.

4. Perfect the fit

While unisex scrubs are both functional and comfortable, a more tailored design can add definition to your uniform. Cut for women, the Mayo Scrub Top features back darts and slanted patch pockets for a more streamlined shape without the bulk. Or try the Women’s Romeo Scrub Pant which has a flattering flared leg with splits and the ankle, plus an elasticised waistband with drawstring feature to tailor the perfect fit for you.

With a few thoughtful upgrades, building a smart and professional scrub uniform is straightforward. Let colour, detailing, fit and fabrication project a polished appearance, while keeping things comfortable and user-friendly. Update your essentials from our expertly designed range right here.
