With the hospitality industry reopening this week, business owners are looking for ways to refresh their establishments to draw customers back.
One of the best ways they’ve found to do this is updating staff uniforms. A clean and well-designed uniform speaks for your business’s professionalism and lets people know they’ve made the best choice in coming to you.
If you’re thinking about updating your staff uniforms but aren’t sure what style to choose, then you’ve come to the right place. As recently outlined by our Lead Designer Nicole Lewis, “at Alexandra we’re constantly updating our clothing lines to respond to the latest workwear trends, regulations and technology.”
Here’s a quick rundown of the hospitality uniform trends making an impact this year.
1. Sustainable workwear
With climate change an increasingly spoken-about issue, more people are making ethical choices where they can. Hence, your business can do its bit while appealing to a broader audience by choosing sustainable workwear.
As the appetite for sustainable clothes increases, so the demand for cheap, non-durable clothes decreases. Many hospitality businesses are looking to invest in their uniforms, making the ethical choice of high-quality fabrics over cheaper imitations a top trend in 2021.
Make the most of this trend by choosing durable fabrics with non-fade colours that will last years. The entire range of hospitality clothing from Alexandra comes with a two-year guarantee from the date of delivery. So when you buy from us, you know you’re getting workwear that’s designed to last.
3. Bespoke uniforms
When you reopen your business, you’re going to want to draw customers in and make them remember your brand. One of the best ways to do this is by re-affirming who you and your staff are through your uniforms.
At Alexandra, we allow you to easily design uniforms in your brand colours and add extras like embroidered logos, staff names and job titles. A striking design will make your brand easily identifiable to make customers take note.
With the Coronavirus pandemic ongoing, no business can survive without PPE. This makes personal protective equipment 2021’s top trend industry-wide.
One of the biggest hospitality uniform trends for 2021 is the return of statement pieces. Draw attention to your business on reopening through items and accessories that stand out from the competition.
Alongside statement pieces, a big hospitality uniform trend for 2021 is vibrant colours. Business owners want to make their establishments look enticing with fun and bright colours.
