Fashion on flights is never easy to master. While we worry about the clothes we’re packing, few of us consider our airplane outfit until the last minute. As such, it’s usually a cobbled affair, more aimed towards comfort than appearance. And, while there’s nothing wrong with that, it might be worth taking time to look good. You’ll feel groggy enough when you step off the plane, without having to worry about how you look.
If in doubt that you can be fashionable 39,000 feet in the air, take inspiration from flight attendants. They experience multiple flights and look fantastic. Admittedly, they’re used to flying, but that doesn’t mean you can’t achieve the same. To ensure it happens, we’ve put together some handy flight fashion tips.
Ready to go
The chances are that your attention lies at the other end of the flight. So, why not pick an outfit you can go straight out in once you reach your destination? Putting your bikini on is always a good idea. Think, too, about slipping on a small t-shirt to serve you in a hotter climate. And, don’t forget to keep your sunnies to hand!
Of course, you can’t exactly get on a plane in a strap top and shorts. It might be cold when you’re heading to the airport! This applies to the journey home, too. You want to stay cool while you’re there, but you also need to consider something warm for the other end. That way, you can dress in winter clothes, and strip off for summer at the drop of a hat. Plus, this is a fantastic way to get around baggage allowance issues. Though, make sure you don’t layer up so much that you pass out on the flight!
Casual but stylish
Comfort is important. But, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on appearance. A simple outfit of jeans, a jumper, and some pumps, is sure to look good. Plus, it’ll feel good. You’ll be able to move with ease, and fit plenty of layers under those basics. Whatever you do, avoid sportswear, or other options you wouldn’t usually wear out. As this article about improving your chances of getting an airline upgrade shows, you may have more need to impress than you’d expect. You don’t want to kiss goodbye to an upgrade just because you didn’t think about your outfit. Besides, you could be sitting next to your dream man!
Less makeup is more
If you’re on a long-haul flight, a face full of makeup is the last thing you want. By the time you land, you can guarantee your eyeliner will be half-way down your face. Plus, liquid allowance means it’s not always easy to get your makeup on the plane with you. And besides, jolting around in the plane toilets isn’t the way to apply. Instead, opt for less. Pencil eyeliner is fine for flights, so wear this instead of liquid. Pair it with a bit of powder foundation, and the job’s done.
