Trend #1: Eco-friendly and Sustainable Materials
Mediclo believes in creating scrubs that are not only functional and fashionable but also sustainable.
Their trendy scrubs are crafted from Tencel™ blend fabric, a combination of 67% Tencel™, 30% recycled polyester, and 3% spandex. Tencel™ is a fiber that is made from the wood chips of responsibly harvested trees, which go through a closed-loop process that uses less water and energy, and 99% of the solvent is recovered, purified, and reused.
Mediclo are committed to being responsible stewards of the environment.They’ve teamed up with ONE TREE PLANTED, a non-profit organization dedicated to global reforestation, as a way to offset their carbon footprint and promote sustainability in their business.

Trend #2: Bold Colours
Fashion runways are saturated with the colours Viva Magenta, Earthy Oranges, Olive Greens, Feminine Pink, Tranquil Blues, Yellow and Creige (a milky combo of cream and beige).
Research suggests that the colors we wear can have an impact on our mood, behavior, and stress levels, and on the way people respond to us.
According to color specialist Leatrice Eiseman, the way colors affect us is related to their behavior in nature. For example, skies are blue which can be associated with being outside as a child playing. Eiseman has conducted research by surveying thousands of individuals about their perceptions of specific colors and has discovered patterns in their responses.

Trend #3: Sleek and Simple
Classic sleek and simple nursing uniforms with lots of pockets remained in fashion for a number of reasons. Yes, they are functional and practical but simple design allows for ease of movement and quick access to pockets and equipment. Additionally, the use of neutral colors and minimal design helps to maintain a professional and clean appearance and can help identify medical staff in a hospital or clinical setting.
Regardless of what nursing uniform styles you choose it’s essential to select scrubs that are comfortable to move in and provide enough pockets to hold all your necessary tools and equipment.
Trend #4: Joggers
The aim of the game with joggers are movement! They are more comfortable to move in compared to traditional fitting scrub pants.
Joggers made of a more flexible and stretchy high tech fabric and have a looser fit around the leg, which allows for more room to move. Often they have a drawstring or elastic waistband, which allows for a more personalized fit and better comfort. This can be particularly beneficial for nurses who are constantly bending and moving around, as it can help to keep the pants in place and reduce the need for constant adjustments.
Jogger are all about movement and high tech comfort all wrapped up in style.
Trend #5: Pockets for Technology
Nursing scrubs have more pockets than ever before to accommodate tools, equipment and technology, like tablets and phones with medical apps.
Did you know a study of healthcare professionals found that 91% possessed a smartphone and 88%, utilized their mobile devices frequently in the clinical setting.
Scrub and medical uniforms designers and manufacturers have been listening! There are more design and styles available today with extra pockets, while checking the scrubs still allowing freedom to move around.
