Ever struggle with tops that bunch at the front, pants and shorts that ride up too high in areas they shouldn’t or handbags with straps so long your bag drags on the floor when hung on the back of your wheelchair? Because I’ve been through that too. So hopefully, less being on the struggle street and more fun in the sun with these Top 5 Summer Styling Tips (Women’s edition).

So lucky for me, these shorts are just right. These high-waisted shorts come in lightweight, breathable cotton.
