When choosing uniforms an important factor to consider is what colour to go for. Colour can play a major role in the look of your uniforms and your overall company image. Below are our top 5 considerations when choosing your work uniform.
Work Uniform Colour: Some Pointers
- What are your corporate colours? This is the first point to consider when deciding uniform colour. Remember, there are different ways to use colour – if you can’t source suits or shirts in your company colour, you can use custom ties or company scarves as a low cost way to get your brand across. Below are some less obvious but equally important considerations.
- Approachability vs. Authority. Colour can play a big role on how approachable your staff appear. For example a pastel shade uniform can come across as more approachable to potential customers. Customer service staff need to regularly interact with the public and need to be approachable at all times. By using lighter shades this can appear more friendly and break down barriers. A direct comparison would be darker shades such as black and navy which can create a more of an “arms length” or authority look. This can be an advantage for the police and similar roles which benefit from demonstrating an authoritative presence.
- Do your staff’s job roles involve possible confrontation? If this is the case then darker shades as mentioned above are ideal to create an impression of authority. A study in Copenhagen reflects just this – by changing their uniforms from green to dark navy, attacks on parking attendants went down by 75%!
- Casual vs. Professional. Colours can also differentiate work uniforms to appear either casual or professional. Warmer, lighter or more fashionable colours can appear more casual and even give a “cooler” corporate image; however smart casual is a tricky thing to pull off. Alternatively darker shades such as navy, charcoal and pinstripes can create a more efficient, smart, professional image. This is something to consider as you will want your uniforms to reflect your company image.
- Consider how your staff will feel in the new uniform colour – The choice of fluorescent pink shirts might have looked good on the drawing board, but are your male staff going to be comfortable in this new look?

It is coming up to the summer holidays and i am sure most of you have your holidays booked up and are looking forward to a break.
We hope you all have a great time!!!
Another bank holiday approaches us allowing us to soak up any sunshine we may get and enjoy an extended weekend. The holiday was formally known as whitsun and is another opportunity to celebrate the new life in spring.
We hope that you all have a great weekend.
Early May bank holiday is approaching and this marks the official start of the spring season. As we look forward to some sunnier weather make sure you and your team are sporting the spring fashions with Keltic’s uniform shirts and blouses!
It is the national Day for England in which we can all hold our flags up and dig into a deluxe feast (as they did in the 1415 when the day was first declared).
We hope you all enjoy the day and any activities you may be participating in.
Impressions matter a great deal in the corporate world – if you wear shabby and unimpressive clothes to work, you may be perceived in a negative way by your colleagues and bosses, even if your record is exemplary. In fact, many companies have made it mandatory to wear suits in the office. In this article we’ll explore the ways that wearing corporate suits can enhance the impression you make at work.
Today in the Keltic office we’ve been raising money for charity. As we do every year we have all been busying ourselves with various fundraising activities for Red Nose Day. Here is what we’ve been up to! Continue reading
At Keltic we try to do our bit for charity. That’s why recently when we had some stock garments which were no longer required, rather than selling it off at a discounted rate, we donated it. In the coming months St Giles Hospice will be selling our van-load of garments across their shops and hopefully getting some real value out of it.
Response from St Giles Hospice
After we dropped off the leftover stock we received a lovely message from Anna Eddleston, the marketing co-ordinator at St Giles Hospice. She said the following:
“St Giles Hospice would like to say a big thank you to Keltic Clothing for their generous donation of shirts, trousers, shoes and work wear. These will be sold across our 31 charity shops; our shops help St Giles raise the vital funds needed to deliver high-quality care to local people living with cancer and other serious illnesses, and so this donation will be contributing to helping us continue such work”
Can You Donate to this Fantastic Charity?
It was such a great pleasure to work with St Giles Hospice and to know the donation would provide help to many people. We hope to be able to do the same soon. If you have anything, big or small, that you think that you might want to donate, then we’d really recommend this excellent charity. You can find their website here. And, as always, you can find ours here.
