Dressing for the Airport

Remember how air travel used to be?  It was much less hassle getting on and off your flights and you ate pretty well while you were flying the friendly skies.  I was 10 the first time I flew.  It was a trip from Nebraska to California and we waited for months in anticipation for our adventure to Disneyland.  We got new suitcases and ordered clothes out the catalog just for our big trip.  The day of our departure we showed up at the airport dressed in our best church clothes.

Those days are long gone.  Now it’s a small bag of peanuts (maybe) and you could people watch at any airport for a long time before you saw too many people dressed in their Sunday best.  Just the same, shouldn’t there be some sort of dress code for air travel?  Here are a few ideas.

While you don’t need to dress to the nines for your flight, you should still look presentable and stylish.  A great fitting pair of jeans and comfortable top and jacket are just the ticket (haha, get it?)

Since you have to go through such stiff security now days you need to be able to take your footwear, belt and jacket off with ease.  Consider pieces that have a loose fit to speed up the process.  Make sure your shoes are uncomplicated and can come off easily.

Add a scarf in a great pop color in case it gets chilly on the plane.  Keep your other accessories simple since heavy metals can set off the detectors.  Choose a handbag that fully zips or snaps – you don’t want to lose that boarding pass!  A great choice would be a cross body bag so you have both hands free for luggage and a coffee.

Safe travels – have a wonderful trip!
