As far as lab coats go, I do not think they are considered to be fashion at all. I do like whenever my drs are wearing them, but I do not like when they are filthy.

When I used to work for a drs office I would go into their offices before they arrived and check out how the coats were faring.

If they were dirty I would switch everything to another coat and take the other one.

Patients do not appreciate a dirty lab coat.....at all.

In other news, I am wearing a black cardigan with white polka dots with a magenta cami underneath. Not high fashion, but is fashion...lol

But would a gown on ‘doctors’ count? No – theirs is not the lab-coat –
The stethoscope and all that stuff will spoil the line of it
And nurses aren't much better

I have pens and paintbrushes sticking out of my hair AND my ample bosom... because I am super-cool! Good news is that I have no writing or painting implements stuck anywhere below the belt... because I'm also all about efficiency and I don't want to bend over and have all my things fall to the ground. Brilliant, yes?! I do have a lab coat that I use as a painting smock. It is anything but classy and ladylike, however. I fully admit that it looks like something you'd find in a post-apocalyptic scenario. Sorry to disappoint.

No, the lab coat in white is boring. A shorter lab coat, in a tunic or long tunic length, in a bright abstract colored print, or with splashes of paint on it, as if someone has been doing art in it for years, can be cool. The lab coat needs to be colorful to be fashionable.

I like these words!

The smock is made of linen, unless worn by a yokel: and a good one won't come cheap

But the cotton or synthetic lab-coat is affordable; and, quite smart with it

My lab coats have stains from chemicals and pens that leaked. Also, my bosom is not ample.
*hangs head in shame*
JaxRhapsody is right, it would make more sense if lab coats were black.
