A good uniform is a statement. It tells your employees they’re part of a team, tells your clients what to expect, and most importantly, a good uniform tells your story.

Modern companies are abandoning the “one size fits all” approach to uniforms. Today’s uniform is all about creating a unified office experience and allowing your employees’ personal styles to show through. The days are numbered for stiff fabrics and restrictive styles. Today’s uniforms are built around fashion basics—polos, wovens and tees—and are enhanced with athleisure features like moisture wicking and performance-shaping that allow for easy movement. This year, color is at the heart of uniforming trends. Whether you’re making a striking monochromatic statement or adding bold color splashes to accentuate your logo, color is key. For an ultramodern look, think soft pastels when updating your company’s style. T-shirts and other fashion basics can be combined with traditional business attire like blazers to create a stylish look that works across generations. This sort of mix-and-match flexibility keeps your team looking fresh and ready for anything.


Is your company a stalwart corporate institution built on tradition and the strength of your reputation? Project a sense of confidence with updated classics like a 1/4-zip fleece over a colorful, woven button-down.



Perhaps your company is a casual local establishment. Try street-ready styles that can be worn on the way to work, to the gym or for a night out on the town.



Or maybe your office operates on the cutting edge of cool. If that’s the case, explore styles that emphasize comfort and encourage personality.
