"I own two pairs in black and blue. I wear black to work and blue for casual wear. I prefer the stretchable type because as a wheelchair user, loose ones tend to slip down. When someone picks you up from the wheelchair the back portion slips down and attracts stares. Elastic waistbands keep them firm".

Diksha has teamed her blue jeggings with a printed white and red top in this picture.
