For those who love fashion and the opportunity to change their style as the weather changes, Fall is one of the most fun seasons of all. Scoliosis patients can easily change their wardrobes to align with all of the fall trends. With just a few adjustments here and there, our patients do not have to compromise style to conceal a brace.
This fall, high-waisted “mom” jeans, leggings, baggy sweatpants, and oversized shirts are the must-haves of the season. Our patients can find numerous pieces at all price points at the same retailers where their friends are shopping. Here are a few of our favorites for Fall 2022.
WIDE HIGH JEANS from H&M
The 90s are all the way back and high-waisted “mom” jeans are the best choice for wearing over your brace. With so many denim washes from distressed to light to medium to dark, you can choose casual jeans for school or dressier ones for going out. This wide-leg pair from H&M would make a great choice for this season.
BAGGY CARGO JOGGERS from AMERICAN EAGLE
