Q. I am a below the knee amputee and am wondering what you would suggest I wear on a trip to the Virgin Islands this Spring. I don’t wear shorts, sandals or anything above the knee. I typically wear light weight pants, jeans and longer capris in the summer. Right now I am unable to wear heels, so I am always wearing flats and t-strap style sandals. I do wear a below the knee prosthesis. Thanks for some tips.
A. We suggest loading up on summery ethnic print tops and tunics, islandy maxi dresses, breezy drawstring linen pants and lightweight cropped jeans or pants. For shoes, this season’s update on the classic huarache is the perfect choice to wear with any of the aforementioned pieces, whether you’re lounging on the beach, having a poolside cocktail or touring the local town.
