What to Wear While Traveling/Carry-On Advice

An estimated 4.5 million people fly on a plane every day. But so many make the mistake of dressing poorly for flight. Additionally, many suffer from forgoing vital carry-on items. In this post, I will teach you how to dress and pack for travel.


What to Wear on the Plane

It’s essential to keep in mind the temperatures of your places of departure and destination. Plus, planes are infamous for being ridiculously air-conditioned, so a lightweight, extra-layer is always nice to have. A form-fitting hoodie might be a better option as opposed to a pullover, in case you don’t know he person you’re sitting next to and they make a scene when your elbow slams them in the arm in the removal or the putting on of your pullover.  But if you wearing a hoodie, DO NOT fiddle with the zipper constantly. It will create a repetitive noise that a lot of people find annoying. Choose wisely.

No sweatpants. Ever. You’ll thank me in the long run. 😉 Leggings work, as they won’t have the slobbish affect of ultra-baggy sweats. I wouldn’t wear shorts or a miniskirt because, (this is going to sound so snotty, prepare yourselves) I don’t like my legs touching the seat. You just don’t know were it’s been.  Jeans, of-course look streamlined, but you do need to take comfort into account. Lululemon pants would work great, because they look neat and are comfy.

Take the lesson from this model to wear seamless underwear with no bows when sporting leggings.

They offer free hemming at the Lululemon store.

These Urban Outfitters leggings compliment the Forever 21 Pullover.


Wear a form-fitting top, because you’ll most likely add another layer at some point, and bulkiness can be very uncomfortable. Also, color-cordonate with the rest of your outfit, especially if you’re wearing a hoodie in case you may opt for it unzipped. Think about the beverages you drink on flight and consider turbulence. Either ditch the white tank or skip the cranberry juice.

Notice the color is perfect for disguising cranberry juice, though you might be a bit cold…


Is it just me, or is the idea of your feet touching airport floor gross? I would discourage sandals. You could always wear oxfords with pegs underneath, whereas flats won’t disguise the pegs. If you opt for boots, you don’t have enough room to have the option of taking your shoes off on flight. The easiest solution would be a pair of stylish sneakers.

What to Pack in Your Carry-On

1. Backup. Always throw a swimsuit or undergarments and a t-shirt in your carry-on. It’s not paranoid; it’s practical.

2. Entertainment. Treat yourself to a magazine. This will distract you from getting cabin fever and eating when you’re not hungry.

3. A map of your destination.

4. A snack. Just remember to make it not be a candy bar. Having only sweets in your stomach could result in regurgitation.

5. If it’s an overnight flight, use makeup remover wipes to prevent clogged pores or waking up like a raccoon. 😉

6. Optional: A cushion. Airplane seats don’t have much padding! Make the on-flight experience more pleasant.
