What to wear with a leg cast
Having a cast on my leg in the middle of December makes it challenging to find things to wear. It’s nearly impossible to find pants that fit over a cast, but necessary when it’s 20 degrees outside. I scoured the Internet looking for leg cast fashion tips and didn’t have much luck. However, I came up with a simple solution.
In my Cozy Cable Knit Sweater post, I talk about pairing an adorable sweater over leggings where I cut off the side that has to go over the cast. These leggings have saved me from wearing sweats every day. I have them in black and gray, and they go with just about anything and really jazz up my leg cast fashion.
I take the side of the leggings that I cut off, and simply tuck it down into the top of the cast. Since they are cut to almost the height of my cast, they stretch easily. While sweatpants seem to fit best over the cast, they aren’t necessarily very fashionable for all situations. And since it’s currently around 20 degrees outside, a dress is out of the question for me.
Tunic tops to wear with leggings
I am self-conscious about wearing leggings if my backside shows, so I always pair them with some sort of tunic, sweater, or long cardigan. Not only is my Cozy Cable Knit Sweater one of my go-to tops with leggings, but so is this Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic. I own this tunic in three colors because it is so versatile and can be dressed up or down. It’s super stylish and perfect for leg cast fashion.
I accepted the leg cast fashion conundrum as a challenge, and I think I came up with the perfect solution. If you have had to rock a leg cast, please tell me how you styled your clothes. I would love your feedback.
