Fashion Tips for Caregivers at Chemo

The question arises: What should a caregiver wear to chemo? There is no official dress code but think again. My favorite look: Khakis with a black linen shirt worn over a black tank top (layers are good) black ballet flats (they signal a causal insouciance) and my new necklace—black pearls inserted among silver waves. This is the gift from John: subtle, stylish and very me.

Hospitals, doctor’s offices and even at chemo-Looking good makes a difference. Leave the sweat pants and polyester at home. Go for neutrals, polish and natural fibers. (There are enough chemicals in CancerLand for everyone.)

Diana Vreeland, the legendary editor of Vogue wrote, “The one presenting the most style has the most power.”  In this powerless situation, style is a consolation.
