The thing is, you don’t want to be barking up the wrong wardrobe – dog grooming uniforms are absolutely crucial to your job. Therefore having easy-clean fabrics, in your style selection is essential for staying fresh and comfortable all day long in the salon.
We have thought long and hard about what you need…
Five Steps to a Workwear Wardrobe Refresh
1. Say YES to the Shirt
If you’re getting tired of the typical trousers and shirt combination, you can mix things up by throwing a shirt into your weekly rotation. While V-neck shirts are very much the style of the season, you can also bring a subtle vibe to the salon with contrasting zip and trim.
2. Love Leggings
Leggings are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing in your wardrobe. They can be dressed up or down and are perfect for any occasion whether you're looking for comfy classics or want to make a stylish statement in the Salon. With 6 sizes, 3 designs and 2 lengths you’ll be empowered to feel confident and covered, with no compromises, for whatever life throws at you… Especially Pet hair!
3. Teriffic Tunics
The best thing about tunics is that they can make even the most casual clothing look and feel smart. Throwing on a tunic will make you feel ready and waiting for a Monday morning before you know it! While darker tones will match practically every outfit you own, you can also make your tunic the star of the show by choosing to go for a blue, grey, pink, purple or even lilac contrasting trim and detail. And, with the fluctuating climate in a salon, there is a long-length version for those cooler days (only available in pink and black)
4. Jazz up your Jackets
If you’re after workwear that provides maximum impact with minimum effort, then a work jacket is the way to go. But if you’re worried that a work jacket also means being boring, think again. For a flattering and fashionable pick, why not try the Milano? featuring a full-length zip, 2 roomy pockets with flaps, a straight stand-up collar and an inverted pleat in the back for extra comfort. Easily worn with leggings the Milano is as comfy as it is stylish.
5. All about the Accessories
To update your work wardrobe for half the cost, try refreshing your accessories. Whether that’s a brand-new case or a colourful apron, there are plenty of affordable and chic ways to elevate your outfit.
This season, we can’t get enough of statement scissor cases. From adding a faux croc skin case in burnt orange or black to your leggings and tunic combo to giving your tapered trousers some oomph with a pink leather scissor case, this item is the ultimate budget-friendly way to keep your workwear feeling fresh.
Thankfully, refreshing your nine-to-five look doesn’t need to cost a fortune. From taking full advantage of accessories to investing in one terrific tunic and trying out a new shirt, there are plenty of ways to give your workwear the wow factor.
