There has to be a good reason why ladies fall head over heels for military men.
Forget the machismo and the charisma! It has everything to do with the uniform. But truth be told, it’s got something to do with working in a dangerous environment.
While there’s no science behind it, uniformed men, not necessarily in the military but firefighters, policemen, construction workers in full armor, bikers, and riggers, to mention but a few, often get the ladies to chase them. This goes both ways, ladies are especially way more attractive when in protective apparel. This means that regardless of your job title, you can still be stylish even in your protective work apparel.
That said, here’s what to look for when selecting stylish safety apparel to protect yourself with.
Depending on the work or activity in question, you should feel good in your protective clothing. But above all, the apparel should provide you with the protection you need against the risk factors in your work or the activities you’re involved in. Essentially, it’s of paramount importance to choose the right workwear for the respective uses. Among the things to consider should include feet protection, head protection, respirator masks, safety helmets, protective gloves, ear protection, and eye protection.
The aim of investing in personal protection apparel is to protect yourself and prevent the dangers that come with working in dangerous and hazardous environments. The same case applies to leisure or everyday activities such as biking and motorcycle riding. According to Teddy and partners from the Wandering Biker, nothing is more important to a motorcycle rider than protective gear, which includes a helmet, jacket, riders’ boots, gloves, and protective pads for the legs. These go a long way in protecting you from serious injuries that call befall you in case you get in an accident during your “thrill-seeking” activities. But finding the right protective apparel is easier said than done. You may know exactly what you need but you may not know how to choose the best while still keeping it stylish.
Let’s now take a look at various aspects to consider when selecting stylish protective apparel.
1. Choosing the Right Size
When choosing protective clothing, one thing should always stand out; a perfect fit! As much as fitting clothing is more stylish these days, it’s also a safety requirement in many workplaces that protective clothing should be a perfect fit. Loose aprons will only increase the risk of being caught in between moving objects. The best thing about having a fitting type of protective clothing is that they’ll also provide you with maximum support.
2. Selecting the Right Clothing Material
There’s a good reason why fire fighting clothes are well, not 100% fireproof, but will protect the firefighter against direct glares. Depending on your work environment or activities, it’s important that you carefully select a clothing material that has everything you need to protect you against your specific workplace hazards. Among the key points to consider when selecting the right protective fabric should include:
- Extremely tear-resistant
- Aesthetic Comfort
- lightweight and flexibility
- should have don and doffing characteristics
- ease of cleaning
For individuals handling hazardous materials such as toxic chemicals and other substances, the selection process may be a bit different. This is because you’ll need protective clothing to protect you from chemical exposure. Most chemicals are corrosive, irritant, and carcinogenic. The most commonly used materials in chemical resistant apparel include Neoprene, nitrile, Vito, and SilverShield, just to name.
3. Consider Quality and Durability
You should never compromise the quality of your protective apparel for a lower price tag. Consider investing in protective clothing that is of the highest quality as they are made from high-quality fabrics. Quality safety apparel will last longer and will not be affected by immediate environmental factors. Another reason to consider high-quality protective apparel is that they come with a warranty from the manufacturer. This is an assurance from the manufacturer that they stand behind their work.
4. Apparel Design
To remain stylish while in your protective apparel, you should select protective apparel that has been properly designed using the right materials. Just because you’re working in the construction industry should confine you to wearing ill-designed apparel. While it’s okay to prioritize your safety, being stylish at your workplace or when participating in various activities will give you the confidence needed to accomplish your work. The apparel should also have wearability characteristics. This will encourage you to don your apparel in style, at the proper time, and doing what you love best.
5. Color and Diversity
If your workplace is not all that strict about colors, you have a reason to select the colors that suit you best when selecting protective apparel. This is especially the case if you’re a lady and are looking to remain stylish even while working in dangerous environments. Ladies like it when their protective apparel are sporty, consisting of fewer pockets, and flexible enough to allow freedom of movement. Additionally, consider apparel that are detailed having the right color combination, and trendy at best.
Finally, your clothes can speak volumes about the type of person you are. The question, however, is whether you care about your style even when working in life-threatening environments. Thanks to the pointers above, you can easily take control and look stylish even when wearing protective apparel.
