#PopularOnNewzHook – Top Lifestyle stories in 2019
This year NewzHook launched NHLifestyle where we turned the spotlight on clothes and other accessories that are trendy and more importantly accessible for disabled people. We covered a whole range from shoes and socks to kurtis and grab wear. Here are some NH Lifestyle stories that got widely shared.
Palazzos are hard to beat for comfort and style. They are great for women who use wheelchairs too! Our feature on Palazzos for office wear was a great hit with our women readers who loved the range and designs we put together.
Parents want their kids to do things independently, including wearing shoes. For some disabled kids, wearing shoes, especially those with laces can be a struggle. Laces can come untied, causing injury. We put together a range of no lace shoes at affordable rates in our feature on No Lace Sports Shoes for Kids.
Kurtas for Men was another much shared story. Here we put together a range of short kurtas that are preferred by men in wheelchairs. As Kerala activist Unni Maxx put it, “They are easier to adjust when I am on the wheelchair.”
Jeggings are so loved by modern day Indian women who are up and about. They are so versatile too! We put together a range of Blue Jeggings in elasticised waistbands because they are easy to wear and take off for women in wheelchairs.
And finally with the holiday season coming close, we put together some gifting ideas for disabled kids, men and women. For children, we had a range of books on disability put together by parents of disabled kids. For disabled men and women, we had a range of accessible and trendy gifts that are out of the box and affordable.
We plan to continue with this popular feature in the new year as well so if you have some cool ideas, so share them with us!
