There's absolutely no reason why individuals in wheelchairs shouldn't be stylish. If you look great, then you feel great as well. Just about any fashion can be tailored for someone in a wheelchair. There are many clothing companies online with products and advice to share, and even books on how to look chic in your wheelchair.
Clothing is versatile and can easily be adapted. You shouldn't have to look too hard to find wheelchair-appropriate fashions that combine classy flair with functionality. Looking and feeling great are easy with features such as zippers down the side of tops and pants with wide, elastic waists.
There are also tricks to deter wandering eyes from your customized garb. For example, avoid tucking in your shirt, as to not bring attention to the waistband. Apparel with hook and loop closures instead of buttons make life easier and can be found in fashionable prints and styles. Back-opening shirts and jackets make sure material doesn't get uncomfortably chafe your back. Opt for trendy jeans and customize the pant fly with Velcro tabs. Women looking to go casual with a feminine touch should try an A-line skirt with a soft bodice; which helps to significantly reduce bunching at the waist.
For formal occasions, there's no need to settle for anything less than fabulous! Go for a 2-piece blouse and skirt for functionality, but remember that the fabric is what really keeps an outfit up with the times. If you really want to wear a dress, experiment with back-opening dresses, then leave a few snap closures discretely undone and tuck the dress around your body so wrinkles are minimal and glamour is guaranteed. Men, don't shy away from classic coats. They can be your ticket to being instantly dressed up or down, and they will help you blend right into just about any scene - business or pleasure. Remember, you have the freedom to pick popular styles that you know are going to look good. Don't settle, there's a lot of choice out there and you can definitely have fun being a fashion idol.
