Choosing jeans as a wheelchair user is often not straightforward. Traditional jeans are not designed for people who are seated so there are some things for designers to think about and things for wheelchair users to consider when selecting the most suitable pair of jeans.
To look beautiful and have confidence we want to have the best in our wardrobes.
Black jeans and white shirts never lose their appeal and with the correct set of accessories and a perfect combination of supremely comfortable shoes will make you look great. Here we have brought you ideas for you to add variety to the basic look…..
1.You can never overdo with red:
That is exactly right. Your white shirt and black jeans can be paired with an exotic bright red coat. Red makes a perfect combination of both white and black. Supremely comfortable Edgy moto boots and a silver necklace will do the rest. A chic bun or a low bun with small earrings will complete the look.
2. Printed scarves are always an option:
Wrap a nice warm cotton, silk or quilt knitted scarf around your neck over your white shirt and black jeans. Make sure you choose some bright colour to add spring look to your overall outfit. You can accessorize it with drop earrings whereas for footwear you can opt for dressy boots, riding boots or ankle boots to go with the look. Wear a hat and set all on fire!
4. Very dark ain’t bad:
Go out, show up babe!!
In this youtube video, I give 5 tips on what to wear on your legs. I explore what is comfortable, practical for my active and adventurous lifestyle and fashionable. I give some insight into the colours that I like at the moment, look at how one item can be used for a variety of looks, and give some ideas for wheelchair users in choosing clothes to wear as not all traditional clothes designs are ideal.
I focus on the practicality of clothes for travel and an active lifestyle so I go for clothes that do not crease and do not need to be ironed when I arrive at a destination. It means I can look good with minimal effort.
Take a look at the video in the link below, let me know what you think and give me feedback on the type of information you would like to see in future videos. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope that you enjoy it.
Here is the link for my interview last week for Radio 5 Live with Emma Barnette. To listen to it you need to register on the BBC website. After that go to the date – 03 Nov 2017 and I start talking at 2:46 min. Emma is so lovely and the BBC building in the city centre is amazing, so big. That feeling that we are inside of the television.
I hope you enjoy it. I am talking about fashion, Models of Diversity and our street survey, Jeans and more.
