How to dress up a uniform: stylish but professional tips.

There are so many benefits to dressing in a company uniform: unity, team building, professionalism. But how do you incorporate your own style into your uniform?

Employees are easily identifiable by customers when wearing a uniform. However, sometimes employees may feel like they get washed away in a sea of company polo shirts. Employees and colleagues want to show who they are, feel unique in their uniforms.

You must first establish a professional look. From there, it’s all about the accessories, whether that be a pair of fun socks, a piece of jewellery, or adding a splash of colour somewhere. It all depends on who you are as a person and what your company’s policies are.

Choosing the right uniform
To get your uniform right, you need to think of your uniform as a blank canvas. From here, employees can create their own look. However, the fit of the uniform is the most important part of your image, no dressing-up will hide an ill-fitted wardrobe. Make sure each employee is fitted correctly and measured for the right sizes. If using a rental service, like Alsco, ask for personalised measurement assistance to ensure the uniforms fit just right.

Personalise the uniform
Once the uniform fits correctly and the right articles have been chosen, the uniform can be personalised.This is where the fun begins! A uniform can be personalised using your own style: your hair, make up and accessories – if you follow workplace guidelines.

A necklace, statement earrings, colourful socks, a broach, a belt, cufflinks, are a few ways that you can bring some of your personality to your uniform. If a tie is a part of your uniform, think of different ways of tying it. Trying something new can also create a unique look. But be careful of company dress codes before you try anything too daring!
