How to dress with a knee brace?

I broke my leg 10 days ago, and had surgery on it this past weekend. While I've been fine hopping around the house and to doctor's offices in shorty-shorts or mens basketball shorts I've started thinking about what I should wear back to the office.

My office isn't super conservative, and no one would really give me a hard time about wearing what I need to with the brace, but at the same time I've had a pretty good blow to my self-esteem with the accident. I also broke two teeth (temporary crowns are in now) and gave myself a pretty good black eye and road rash on my face. I want to feel as pretty as I can with a giant velcro monstrosity strapped to my left leg.
Any tips from women who've been there? I wear about a XXL or size 18. Are loose skirts the answer? I've found crutches to be the least tiring when I have a very shock-absorbing shoe on the good foot. Any suggestions for these qualities in a dressier package?
Online ordering is obviously preferred.
