That 70’s Revival

The comforting thing about fashion is that it often repeats itself. As much as we enjoy the innovation of forward thinking designers, it is always a pleasure to see the return of certain beloved fashion trends. (However, some should be left in the past. Stay away 1980s shoulder pads.) For 2015, fashion lovers can expect to see a revival of the 70s within womens fashion.

Prints and more prints

With a 1970s inspired look, colorful and fun prints are one of the most important elements. For those of you normally hiding behind a monochromatic palette, this is your opportunity to branch out. Pair a daring print with an Earth tone. Still nervous about wearing a bold design? Wear a fun scarf or accessory to add a little pop.

Own your flare

When people think back to this decade, there is one memorable trend that stands out the flare. Now, dont worry. Many of todays flares are not equivocal to the ones found in humiliating, vintage pictures or your old Halloween hippy costume. The subdued flare or boot cut pant can be worn at home or to the office. They are quite flattering and work well with a feminine, fitted blouse. A high-tapered waist creates a pretty silhouette, which can be more forgiving than the ever popular skinny.

Pump it up!

Platforms are back. To be honest, they never truly left. With each season, there typically seems to be some version of this elevated shoe. In the 1970s, these heels were ideal for the popular floor-length maxi and peasant dresses. During the winter months, you may have opted for an updated, platform boot. Welcome the warmer weather with stylish platform sandals. For many, the chunky heel is a much-welcomed relief from the stiletto!

All that fringe

Of course, suede has been making its way down the runway. What makes it so fun? The fringe. Its a wonderful finishing touch to any jacket or handbag. Designer dresses and skirts used fringe for its peek-a-boo effect. Its daring without being too revealing. When purchasing a suede or leather item, it is important to take the cleaning costs into consideration. Regular, quality maintenance is the answer in protecting your investment.

Keep it Short Or long, long LONG

Welcome back micro minis. When it comes to this skirt length (or rather lack of length), it is important to keep a few things in mind. Is this workplace acceptable? Can you move about without revealing too much? When in doubt, you can opt for the minis cousin, the skort. These fun, little shorts resemble micro mini skirts but allow for a bit more modesty. If you are looking for a more professional look, you may wish to stay with last years maxi dresses. They are still very in so feel free to pick up a few more. Maxi dresses that reach the ground are perfect just dont forget your favorite pair of heels.

Its OK to indulge

What many lovedand still love about the 1970s is the silhouettes. They are generally less defined and more forgiving than the form fitting garments of decades past. Peasant dresses and blouses allow for greater comfort especially in the warmer months. While they are elegant enough for a night out, these light and breezy pieces are also ideal for a walk in the park or a summer day picnic.

As with any decades fashion, the trends are not meant for everyone. Designers do their best to create stylish garments that should work with most body shapes and lifestyles. However, fashion is simply not just about what is available. You have to feel comfortable and confident. To avoid wearing a costume, pair one or two trendy pieces with a more classic look. Keep in touch with the 70s minimalist approach. Pack away your Spanx, tone down your makeup routine and think looser silhouettes. Sunnier days are ahead.

The Change in Scrubs

The only permanent thing in this world is change”

As a scrub lover and collector I became aware that even scrubs are not immune to change. Through the changing times, scrubs also changes, was modified and innovated.

A nurse uniform is attire worn by a nurse for hygiene and identification. The traditional nurse uniform consists of a dress, apron and cap. It has existed in many variants, but the basic style has remained the same and can be recognize.

The first nurse uniforms were derived from the nun’s habit. Before the 19th century, nuns took care of ill people and the link with the uniform is made. One of Florence Nigtingales first students (Miss VanRensselaer) designed the original uniform for the students at Miss Nightingale’s school of nursing. Before the 1940s minor changes occurred in the uniform. The clothing consisted of a blue outfit. Historically, a typical nurse uniform consisted of a dress, pinafore apron and nurse’s cap. A nurse’s cap or nursing cap is part of the female nurse’s uniform, introduced early in the history of the profession. The cap’s original purpose was to keep the nurse’s hair neatly in place and present a modest appearance. In some hospitals, however, student nurses also wore a nursing pin or the pinafore apron may have been replaced by a cobbler which is a is a type of apron that covers both the front and back of the body. It is fastened with sides ties or with waist bands that tie in the back. It covers most of the upper part of the body and is frequently used in many vocational occupations style apron. This type of nurse’s dress continues to be worn in many countries.

But since late 1980’s, there has been a move towards alternative designs of nursing uniforms in some countries. Newer style nurse’s uniform appeared. Example of this style is tunic-style top and dark blue trousers that are optimally designed to prevent cross-infection, the color of which depends upon the grade (or, more recently, band) of the nurse – the color varies between NHS Trusts. The tunics often feature piping around the edges of the uniform and a dress in the same color as the top tunic.

A “scrub dress” is a simpler type of uniform, and is sometimes worn in operating rooms. For outdoor clothing the nurse had a red jacket over the indoor nurse uniform. If a nurse is seen outside in their uniform, this is an offence and the nurse may be subjected to a review. Traditional uniforms remain common in the Third World, but in Western Europe and North America, so-called scrubs.

Scrubs are the shirts and trousers or gowns worn by nurses, surgeons, and other operating room personnel when “scrubbing in” for surgery. They are designed to be simple with minimal places for dirt to hide, easy to launder, and cheap to replace if damaged or stained irreparably.

Beginning in the 1990s, and until the present time, the traditional nurse uniforms have been replaced with the “new” scrub dress in some countries. Most hospitals in Europe argue that the scrub uniform is easier to clean than the old nurse uniforms. This new trend resulted to division:Those who prefer the new scrubs; they disliked the old nurse uniforms and the nurses who liked the old nurse uniforms; they argue that nurses who wear scrubs are seen by the patients as cleaners and cannot be identified as nurses.

The change from traditional nursing uniform to stylish scrub is still a mystery that shows that things here on earth really change including the perception of fashion and style, of cleanliness and dirtiness and professional looking to casual.

Though there are changes I still believe that the change in the style of nursing uniform is a change in form but not in the spirit of the nursing world. Still nurses are the same yesterday, today and in the future, as long as the spirit of service is there. No matter what the change will be in the future the most important thing are the hearts of nurses towards their endeavors.
