Air travel is definitely exciting but it can be extremely uncomfortable if you haven’t given good thought on what to wear.
Sounds rather obvious but some people actually don’t give the kind of outfits which they wear on a plane much thought. They just throw on clothes with little or no thought then regret later when the discomfort kicks in!
As much as it’s important to look good when you arrive your final destination, it’s equally very key to feel comfortable during your flight especially if it is a flight which lasts more than two hours.
Whether you are going for a business trip or vacation, the choice of your outfit really dictates your comfort level.
What should you wear for that extra comfort while traveling by flight?
Here are some tips on what kind of outfits to consider while traveling by flight. Again this is just a generalized guide. You can always customize it according to your preference.
Everyone has their own cold tolerance levels but generally planes are abit cold. Based on this fact alone, it is wise to carry a warm layer for the cold even if you are traveling to a warmer place. A sweater, light jacket or hoodie would work. just make sure that whatever you carry can easily be removed and thrown in your backpack when need arises.
2. Darker colors
Bright colors are definitely the best but sometimes all you need to ruin your outfit, is a little turbulence and all your drink is all over your lap! Turbulence is something you cannot predict. Opt for outfits with materials that dry fast or don’t easily show stains in case of spills.
3. Go slow on jewellery
A simple look will work best while traveling via plane. Most of the time you will always be asked to remove your earrings, necklaces, bangles and chains at the airport security check. Save them for when you reach your destination.
As for hair keep it simple. Just in case you sleep and your hair ends up looking shabby. Probably opt for a ponytail which is easy to adjust when necessary.
4. Crease free pieces
Bearing in mind that you will be seated for several hours, choose pieces that don’t crease too easily. Avoid linen. Yes linen looks chic but by the time you arrive your destination, the amount of crease will be crazy.
Thanks to the athleisure trend which has made it acceptable to rock your gym outfit outside the gym. You can choose to rock your joggers or even yoga pants while traveling by flight. Good thing is that most of these athleisure outfits stretch really well for that extra comfort and are crease free. For more about athleisure outfits, feel free to visit this post.
Just in case you are not a fun of the athleisure trend, palazzo pants or maxis are great alternatives too.
Lets face it you will be doing a lot of sitting hence your feet are likely to swell particularly on a long flight. You might also have to run to catch your flight or walk long distances in between terminals.
If you rock heels will you comfortably maneuver around?
Comfort is very key hence go for comfortable shoes.You can opt for comfy sneakers to complete your athleisure outfit. Nairobi sports house has a variety of really good ones. I’ve noticed puffy sneakers are trending lately but the choice is absolutely yours. Backyard shoes has really good ones.
Sandals are also another great option incase you rock your maxis or palazzo pants. Just remember to go for those ones with a comfortable foot bed.
Extra tip: At times luggage gets misplaced in airports. Remember to carry a light hand luggage where you can pack your essentials so as to easily access them when need arises while on flight. You might need your pens to fill out questionnaires especially with this Covid 19 situation. Back packs are always easier in my opinion.
