    I wear chinos almost every day, and I don't think I look any less professional that some of my peers who turn up in suit trousers.

    My personal attire related bugbear is tatty shoes; I really don't get why people will pair a nicely ironed shirt with some decent trousers before ruining the whole effect by donning a tatty pair of childish looking shoes they probably wore to school. You don't need to spend a fortune on shoes to look presentable, just buy something grown up from Clarks and learn to polish them properly.

    If you're a med student/junior Dr I would go for smart-casual stuff. You want to look like you made an effort but also approachable. And from what I've seen if you're consultant you can wear whatever the hell you want except your birthday suit! Although pretty sure being bare above and below the elbows would do wonders for infection control...

    Also if you're on anaesthetics/ICU/A&E you can usually sneak in some converse/trainers with your scrubs, cause you look a mess anyway!

    Doctors should dress smart casual as they are professionals and patients expect to speak to someone who is dressed accordingly. At the end of the day it must also be very comfortable and easy to wash and iron after a hard days collecting germs from hospitals etc. and stop the spread of infection.
