Work wear for women

Despite the huge strides women have made in the workplace, suggestions of work wear for women brings forth old clichés of nurses uniforms, air hostesses, Mrs Overall’s overalls and housecoats. However, women are increasingly taking up professions previously reserved for men, such as plumbing, car mechanics and construction and as such, work wear has adapted, where necessary, to accommodate the change.

That doesn’t mean boilersuits in soft pastel shades, rather the trusty polo shirt and combat type, durable trousers. Starched crisp nurses uniforms (for men and women) have been banished in favour of more practical tunic tops and trousers. Paediatric nurses will often wear uniforms in fabrics and colours reassuring to children, to increase a sense of accessibility and help alleviate any fear of being in hospital.
