I somehow manage each morning to dress, after much thought about my outfit for the day. As a quadriplegic, multiple wardrobe changes isn’t always realistic nor an option, so your outfit must work in all temperatures and from day to evening. This is not an easy feat at the best of times and as of late, given the crazy weather here in the northeast, almost impossible!
Temperatures can fluctuate 30 degrees in one day so what is a girl to wear? Now is the time to put away the puffy coats and clunky boots and blossom while still being practical. There are so many options this year so with some smart layering, chic AND practical is possible.
Start off with a basic T shirt that can stand alone, if you shed the top layers. If the forecast is slightly chilly, wear a long sleeve but if it looks like it could get really warm, wear a short sleeve or tank. Cotton T shirts are great but now there are also new fabrics like blends, modal or even bamboo that are silky soft which make it easier to slide a sweater over and aren’t bulky at all. Pick a bright colored cardigan or pullover that’s easy to remove if you start feeling warm.
