A flight ride may symbolize the anticipation of a new exciting adventure, while numerous plane rides symbolizes a life of a busy working class or a lifetime traveler travelling around the world discovering new wonders of nature. As a frequent air traveler, it is very important that we are well equipped and dressed appropriately for our trips. While hopping on a plane may seem like the easiest step of all, dressing for the plane ride is an acquired skill that may take time after time to master.
So, how does one stay comfortable without disregarding style all together? Well, try to achieve a balance between fashion and function. Here are the top 5 tips for skilfully achieving that balance:
1. Layers, layers, layers!
The first tip is to layer up with the right kind of clothes, don’t wear skin revealing clothes that only serve as a styling function. No matter where your destination is, getting there involves interchanging transportations with varying climate changes. From an air-conditioning cab ride to the airport to the waiting area at the gate to taking the bus transfer to having low temperatures once your board the plane, temperature change may change drastically. So please dress in layers.
2. Do invest in a great quality carry on and don’t over pack.
Simplification is key to travelling, always remind yourself when packing what you really need (those that you cannot live without for just a few days). Bag checking is such an annoying process to go through, either it being overweight resulting in an extra fee, or when you arrive the destination but found out your bag was lost on the way. It is also mandatory to wait for your bags at the baggage claim upon arrival, that feeling of being stuck wasting time at the airport for over an hour is just too troublesome.
3. Ladies, wear comfy shoes!! Heels are a big NO NO.
Every girl is in love with heels that’s a fact, but when it comes to taking an overseas flight you should reconsider wearing some easy slip ons when passing through security or when you want to take off your shoes and relax during the flight. A pair of fashionable white sneakers won’t do you no harm ;)
4. Opt for breathable fabrics, Never wear tight clothing.
Let your skin breathe! Comfort isn’t one of the obvious issues here but choosing loos clothing made with natural fabrics is actually a healthier choice. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a type of blood clot that is more likely to increase while flying. Dehydration, low cabin pressure, and sitting in same spot without much movement may all contribute to this. Wear stretchable jeans or leggings, or even a long skirt that is long enough to cover your calves!
5. Stay clean and always wash your hands after visiting the toilet!
It is also best to stay away from perfumes as odors are intensified on planes, as air flow is recycled within the cabin. It would be appreciated if everyone can take good care of their own personal hygiene.
