3 Tops to Freshen Up Your Scrubs Wardrobe

You look in the mirror and see blah. It’s not that you don’t have anything to wear. You’re just tired of wearing the same scrubs week in and week out. We’ve all been there. So we asked our founder, Kathy, to give us her top picks to get you out of your funk so you can start loving your wardrobe again.

 

1. Mariposa by koi Tara top

“I love this top. The first thing you notice the Tara top is the neckline. It’s asymmetrical. Totally cool and modern and different from 99% of the scrubs out there. It’s super flattering and so comfortable. It’s a stretch top, after all. But what makes it really stand out is the laser-cut floral details at the neck, back and shoulders. I also love the butterfly heat transfers on the front pocket and the back. It’s different from the other scrub tops out there, but in a good way.”

Love it >

 


 

2. koi Lite Serenity top

“Let me start this off by saying zippers are pretty darn cool. But you don’t see many of them on scrub tops. Well, the Serenity top has a double zipper at the neck, along with a couple of very stylish zipper pulls. Add in some smart-looking (and comfy) rib trim on the side and you have a striking scrub top that combines modern and athletic aesthetics. Best of all, it features koi’s easy-care performance stretch fabric that looks awesome even straight from the wash. The Serenity top is definitely a great way to keep your wardrobe looking fresh.”

Want it >

 

 

 

3. koi Lite Bliss top (print: Cosmos)

“Enough of the solid tops. For pick #3, let’s go with a print top. Not just any run-of-the mill print top, but a super rad mesh print top, the koi Lite Bliss top with Cosmos print. The floral and butterfly print works well with the mesh fabric (don’t worry, it’s not see-through) and gives off a cool, modern yet feminine vibe. The Bliss top comes in a variety of prints but this is definitely my favorite. Even if you can’t wear prints to work, this top would look great outside of work, even out on the town. Trust me, no one would even guess you’re wearing a scrub top.”

Gotta have it >

koi Basics Sneak Peek: Katie & Laurie

Our koi Basics launch less than a month away! So here’s a first look at two style from this new collection:

 

 

 

First up is our koi Basics Katie top. Priced at just $23.95 USD, this mock-wrap top is everything you wouldn’t expect from a value-priced collection.

What you’ll really love about Katie are the details, like the contrast print facing at the neck. The bungee loop for your ID badge. The stylish rib trim that provides a trim, clean look. The double patch pocket with printed button detail. There’s even a hidden cell phone pocket with a printed lining. It’s doesn’t just look great. It’s super functional.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Katie top pairs nicely with our new koi Basics Laurie pants. Priced at just $24.95 USD, Laurie is the lowest priced scrub pant offered by koi (although you’d never expect it). Laurie is a yoga-style pant, which means it is super comfortable. The Laurie features a mid-rise waist, contrast print facing on the interior waist, flare legs and six pockets in all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Despite these low prices, koi Basics fabric doesn’t feel cheap at all. It features an advanced blend of polyester and spandex that’s lightweight, doesn’t cling, and has just the right amount of stretch for comfort and easy movement. As a bonus, it features moisture-wicking technology that helps keep you cool and dry!

Both Katie and Laurie will be available at launch in five colors: Black, Navy, Royal Blue, Charcoal and Green Tea.

Best. Scrub. Pants. Ever.

“Best fitting and most comfortable pants ever!” – Laurel D., British Columbia, Canada

 

Eleven years ago, when we launched our Lindsey pants, we hoped that nurses would like it. Little did we know, it would be a game changer. It was the uniform industry’s first cargo-style pant and the product that put koi on the map. Many knockoffs later, Lindsey is still the undisputed champ, selling well over seven million pairs. And counting.

So what is it that people love about our Lindsey pants?

COMFORT

“I love the Lindsey pants. They are the most comfortable pants to wear to work when you are working a 12 hour shift.”
—Stefanie B., Birmingham, AL

Many of our customers tell us the Lindsey is the most comfortable pant they’ve ever worn. We credit our super soft cotton/poly blended twill fabric. The cotton makes it soft and breathable. The polyester makes it strong and durable.

FIT

“LOVE the Lindsey pants!! I’m a plus size and love how they fit and look—lots of compliments.”
—Marcy M., Rolesville, NC

Fit is the most important thing to consider when buying clothes. You want it to be comfortable. And you don’t want it to bunch up in all the wrong places. With the Lindsey, and all our styles, we make sure to fit them on a range of body types to ensure a proper fit on all sizes from extra small to plus sizes.

LENGTH

“Love the petite pants length. Don’t have to hem them!”
—Suzie O., Green Cove Springs, FL

Healthcare workers come in all shapes and sizes so we offer our Lindsey pants in lengths ranging from extra petite to tall. Plus, our Lindsey pants feature bungee toggles at the hem so you can adjust the pant length to the perfect length.

QUALITY

“Wearing scrubs in my profession for over 20 years and absolutely love the quality of your scrubs.”
—Lisa C., Herriman, UT

Our Lindsey pants are constructed using the finest quality fabric, and we use double-needle stitching at the seams to ensure the pants last longer. In addition, every garment we make is tested and inspected multiple times to maintain the highest level of quality.

“I love koi. They are the only scrubs that fit me in all the right places ”
—LaDawna S., Spokane Valley, WA

Today, our Lindseys come in 34 different colors. And people still tell us all the time how much they love our Lindsey pants. If you’ve never tried on our Lindsey pants, we urge you to see what you’ve been missing.

7 Things You Can Do to Support Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and koi is proud to partner with The Breast Cancer Research Foundation to be part of the cure.

Here are some things you can do to support breast cancer awareness:

1. Donate to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation at bcrf.org

The mission of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. They’re the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the US!

 

2. Wear a pink ribbon to show your support

Not all pink ribbons are created equal. Get educated at: pinkribbon.org

 

3. Discuss the importance of regular self exams with friends & loved ones

Women and men should perform a Breast Self Exam at least once a month.

 

4. Send your letters with the Breast Cancer Research Forever Stamp

Available at your local post office or usps.gov.

 

5. Volunteer for or join a breast cancer fundraiser, or start your own

Find out how at: https://www.bcrf.org/fundraise

 

6. Share tips for breast cancer prevention

 

7. Shop (carefully)

Not all products with a pink ribbon actually benefit breast cancer research. Some have harmful chemicals that actually contribute to breast cancer development, and some companies cap the amount they’ll donate each year.

koi donates $2 from the sale of each BCRF top and $1 per BCRF accessory to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, with a $15,000 minimum annual donation.
