Review: Jaanuu Scrubs

Scrubs for the medical fashionista.

I was so happy that Jaanuu sent me a pair of scrubs to try out: the biker top in black XS and the jogger pants in black XS. Jannuu was founded by a brother-sister duo driven to reinvent the medical apparel industry by introducing “runway-worthy” styles to the medical profession. Health care professionals spend their entire careers in scrubs and medical attire, so why not make them stylish and comfortable?

Disclaimer: The following is my honest review of these scrubs. I did receive a free pair to try out, but I did not get paid to endorse them.

Style

I think this category is where these scrubs absolutely shine. If you check out their collection, they have tops that can transition seamlessly to after-work outfits. Their shirts and pants are meticulously constructed and fashion-forward. The biker top stands out because its golden zipper adds a bit of glamor. I can see them going well with white skinny pants for a dressier look. And I’m absolutely obsessed with the jogger pants. I could easily see myself wearing them at home or on the weekends as casual street wear. They pair well with a cotton tee and sneakers.

Comfort

The top is constructed with ForminaFlex™ (52% polyester, 45% rayon, 3% spandex), “an ultra-soft, performance-driven two-way stretch fabric that couples game-changing color retention with the form your silhouette deserve.” I will say that this scrub top did not move as seamlessly with my body as I’d hoped. It has a more constructed look and feel, rather than that soft-stretch loose t-shirt feel of other scrub tops. Therefore, I’d definitely wear this top if I wanted to look cute for a day in clinic, but would hesitate to wear these for a long overnight shift.

The jogger pants are made of a similar material as the scrub top and are super comfortable and cool to the touch. The waistband can be adjusted easily so they hang comfortably around your hips. The elastic around the ankles are not too tight and very flattering. I wore the jogger pants for the entire day and felt great in them.

Convenience

Although the material boasts that it’s “wrinkle-free,” I will say that I spent a long time steaming the top when it first arrived in the mail. I think the scrubs might get softer with a tumble in the wash, but they do wrinkle and crease. The biker top is really easy to wear because the zipper unzips all the way and you can essentially slip on the top like a jacket. There’s also cute pockets for your hands (which I didn’t discover until later!). The jogger pants have zipper pockets for your hands and one cargo pocket on the side for storing more pens. The back packets have a button snap, which are stylish but might be hard to access if you’re trying to store papers on-the-go.

Fit

The scrub top in XS was a little long for me, so I would love to see a petite line! But the top really accentuated my waist line and definitely has a fitted look. The jogger pants fit me perfectly and I’m 5’3″.

Cost

The biker top retails at $47 and the jogger pants retail at $42. They’re definitely on the pricier end, but they do stand out. If you stroll into the hospital in these scrubs, people will notice and ask where you got them.

Verdict

Overall, I think these scrubs are incredibly stylish and well-constructed and would be a great asset to anyone who’s looking to spice up their wardrobe. I probably wouldn’t wear these scrubs for those punishing overnight shifts or 24-hour calls in the hospital, but they’d be perfect for a day in clinic, or if you wanted to transition seamlessly into an after-work outfit! Definitely check out Jaannuu’s growing collection if you’re a medical fashionista. They’re also launching a men’s collection later this year.
