Travelling is both wonderful and stressful all at the same time. Spending a lot of time at the airport and sitting in an airplane can be uncomfortable on its own but if you dress up wrong you’ll make it even worse for yourself. Here are five things you need to avoid wearing at all times when you are travelling.
Whether you are travelling to Barbados or the Bahamas you still shouldn’t wear immodest clothing on the airplane. This is for two reasons really. First, you probably don’t want to end up sitting next to a half naked person yourself so don’t put anyone else through this experience either.
Second, airplanes and airports can end up being quite chilly places and thus only wearing a top and shorts can get you feeling really cold. Cover yourself appropriately and be considerate of other people.
2. Full Woolly Clothing
The above doesn’t mean that you should also just put on a woolly jumper when you are boarding. The temperature can easily vary and change and thus layers are the best way to go. You don’t want to end up sweating and having some simple layers are the best ways to control you aren’t too hot or cold.
Get a lovely cardigan, for example, to ensure you can remove it to your handbag if you start feeling warmer. You can also add a coat to your travel look if you are flying off to somewhere colder.
3. Tight Clothing
Sitting still in a relatively small space is going to make you feel a little bit uncomfortable anyway and you shouldn’t make it any worse by opting to wear tight clothing. Test out your items first to ensure they also feel good when you sit.
Although it is nice to look trendy when you fly you should still put your comfort first. Don’t try to fit into your favourite jeans for the flight. A pair of comfortable leggings might be just the right idea for a good travel look.
4. Smelly Clothing
You also don’t want to be travelling in smelly clothes and thus you must wear something you just washed. It is also advisable to go easy on the fragrance just out of consideration to your fellow passengers. Some people can suffer from migraines if they are next to sharp fragrances and thus it is always better to just wear well-washed clothing and a bit of deodorant. You can always spray a bit of fragrance once you get out of the airplane.
Whatever you do above all it is important that you don’t wear high-heels. You might end up walking a lot in the airport and you don’t want to get yourself any more tired than you will by just having to travel.
