Magnets Attract and Adapt. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Give your loved ones the gift of stylish adaptive fashion
This Valentine’s Day show your special someone extra love by gifting them with a present from an adaptive clothing line. Designed with accessibility in mind, these products are sure to aid independence and help restore dignity.
As a single lady on Valentine’s Day, I skip the roses and dinner reservations and opt for a “Galentine’s Day” celebration. In years past, my single friends and I would gather in red and pink dresses, pop open a bottle of rosé to the tune of Beyoncé in the background. But with the current restrictions in NYC, my Galentine’s Day will look a little different this year– the sentiment remains the same though. On February 14th, I like to celebrate the incredible women in my life that support me and help me grow, whether that be my bestie or my mom. Every Galentine deserves a gift befitting of their magnificence and here are a few of my favorite adaptive clothing products for the Galentine in your life:
The Elaine Long Sleeve Button-Down Shirt from Yarrow takes the hassle out of getting dressed with a magnet front placket. This adaptive shirt in our soft drapey twill fabric is ease and sophistication in one. Layer this with a Lainie Full-Zip Knit Jacket and instantly add a sense of polished style and functionality to your look. Featuring MAGZIP® Patented magnetic zipper technology, this stylish jacket makes a great layering piece to grab a socially distant drink and will give your Galentine the gift of getting dressed with ease. Pair this with Yarrow’s classy adaptive skinny-fit jeans with magnetic closure that looks like your favorite pair of jeans but is engineered with the ease of a legging. You won’t regret adding these stylish staples to your Galentine’s wardrobe and you won’t have to sacrifice functionality or comfort.
For your stylish bestie, this sleek and accessible pull-on boot in patent leather has exclusive weatherproof technology for comfort and style suitable for any and all conditions. You can really impress your Galentine and make a statement with Aquatalia’s Haylie boots. And you’ll definitely dazzle your friend with Millianna’s Tri Strand Bracelet that is perfect for your loved one with dexterity issues. The magnetic clasps allow for an easy on and off. Needless to say, jewelry can make any Galentine’s day feel magical, especially with the accessible magnetic clasp on the Millianna Spencer 2m Necklace. But only the Frieda Essential Day Dress can make this outfit complete. Sold in a Winter Bloom or Black, it makes date night or drinks with the girls that much sweeter.
Self-Care = Self Love
Whether you are recovering from surgery or self-isolating because of the pandemic, Valentine’s Day could be the perfect excuse to show yourself a little extra love. Self-care could be watching a rom-com in your pajamas or spending some time on your skincare. In need of a little R&R? Let me give you a little inspiration to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day. You deserve it!
The brobe, an intuitively adaptive bra-robe combination is a must-have. It’s specifically designed for women going through a mastectomy, breast reconstruction, or breast augmentation. It is essential recuperation wear for those recovering from organ transplants, open-heart surgery, and tummy tucks. Consider comfort a necessity because this bra-robe is designed to be worn before, during, and after recovery.
Feeling cheeky? The Slick Chick’s adaptive super soft low-rise Tanga is a cross between a bikini brief and a thong, with just a slight amount of coverage for your backside. Side fasteners simplify self-dressing or caregiver dressing assistance.
As day turns into night and you start to feel sleepy, turn to a set of MagnaReady pajamas with patented magnetic closures that you can slip on in a jiff. The super-soft fabric and elastic waistband will make these pajamas your favorite set. But the day isn’t over yet. No self-care routine is complete without showing your skin a little love. As the saying goes, when you look good, you feel good and there is no better way to treat yourself than to invest in great skincare products.
Family Game Night
This past year we spent so much time with those in our households. We learned our sibling’s hidden talents, taught our parents TikTok dances, traded stories with our grandparents, taught our grandkids to cook, and managed to balance work and our kids being kids. This Valentine’s Day show some love to your family and friends who helped you endure quarantine with a family game night either in person or online. Here are a few adaptive outfits to make sure you are the sharpest looking member of your friends and family for your fashionable family game night:
Slip into an Alana Soul Adaptive Blouse in black from Smart Adaptive Clothing. It is perfect for hitting the town, work, Zoom calls, and more. This accessible blouse matches beautifully with MagnaReady’s Denim Button Down Long Sleeve Shirt with Magnetic Closures. Show up in this adaptive ensemble and you’ll be sure to get compliment after compliment.

Focus on work and never worry about buttons again with the security of this shirt’s patented magnetic closure. The men in your life will love this stylish adaptive top and all its functionality.
Now, some say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but I think an iconic pair of shoes truly holds the best friend position. Shoes are there for you. They protect you, make sure you look good, and certainly in this case– they treat you so well. Make these Frye Lena Zip Low-Top Sneakers your new best friend shoe. This pair of sleek zip-up shoes has removable insoles to accommodate orthotics and is made with Italian leather. These adaptive shoes are designed to give you all-day comfort. Just like a best friend should.
And if you find yourself feeling the need to pop out of the house for some snacks before game night starts, be safe and complete your look with a mask. We’ll take this fashion pointer from Bill Nye, everyone’s favorite Science Guy. The Airband Unisex 3-Ply Nanofiber Mask comes in so many different patterns. The Airband mask will protect you from 99% of particulates and keep you on-trend.
Whether you brave the cold for outdoor dining or enjoy a homecooked meal, your Valentine will feel extra love with the gift of adaptive clothing and jewelry. Adaptive products aid in independence and help give back confidence and dignity to your loved one. And these cute pairings will be sure to make your Valentine shine.
Impress her with Millianna’s Inca hand beaded earrings. These crystal and rice pearl earrings feature an open hook at the back so the earring can sit on the earlobe without an earring back. Designed for one-handed ease and 100% sparkle.
