Frankie & Henry Florist Uniforms

This week Frankie and Henry channel their inner flower child to present staff uniforms perfect for florists. Flowers are the stars of a florist’s showroom and shouldn’t be outshone by bright clothing. With this in mind, paired back uniforms are ideal for ensuring your blooms remain the stars of the show, and our curated selection of tops, chinos and work aprons offer the ideal clothing options for florist uniforms. Aprons are an essential item for florist uniforms, providing protection to daywear when the job gets messy. Cargo Crew aprons also offer additional over-sized pockets to store your workday essentials. The vibrant blooms contrast against our hardwearing Workers Bib Apron, whilst the dark Indigo Denim fabric brings out the flowers naturally bright colours. If a full bib apron isn’t required our Henry Waist Apron in Bondi Blue is a handy uniform addition that still provides protection and easy to reach pockets. A monochrome pinstripe shirt works well in this setting. Our striped Dixon shirt doesn’t draw attention but still provides a point of difference to plain items. …

Frankie & Henry Trans-Seasonal Dressing

With the transition of seasons, it’s important your work uniform keeps you comfortable no matter the weather. This week Frankie & Henry demonstrate how to perfect trans-seasonal dressing.🍁🍃🌧  Weather can be unpredictable, particularly in the Autumn and Spring seasons when temperatures can not only change dramatically within a week, but also within a day (am I right Melbourne?). However, this doesn’t mean you need to carry an extra work outfit with you to counter unpredictable weather. 3/4 sleeve shirts are perfect for this time of year, like our Riviera 3/4 Sleeve Striped T-Shirt. Wear a jacked or long sleeve shirt as a top layer for additional sleeve length when needed. T-shirts are always a favourite and can still be the hero of a work uniform as they only require a top layer worn open at the front to reveal your tee. Skirts are ideal for this time of the year as stockings can be worn for extra warmth. They can be easily removed if the weather warms up. Our Todd chino pants and skirts are …
