Knowing what to wear when travelling on a plane is a skill everyone needs to have. If you’re new to this, it’s helpful to start with a travel wardrobe. You can get these at many travel and hotel retailers, and also online from some specialty sites.
Cotton is often the most popular fabrics for clothing to be worn on planes. It will hold up well to being wet and sweaty, plus it can be lightweight and breathable. When you arrive at your destination, simply throw on your travel wear. If you can find a clean shirt that’s been wrung out (you won’t be able to fit in the bathroom), you can use that one.
The cooler temperatures will help you stay dry and limit your exposure to body heat. Layering is also ideal when wearing cotton pants and shirts, since the air has a tendency to transfer through the clothing.
Try getting a waterproof pants and a waterproof jacket. When you arrive at your destination, you can wear your clothes and then remove the outer layer to sleep in. I use this trick every year when I’m travelling for a winter vacation.
Finally, if you’re planning on visiting the warm weather of Florida, get a travel suit. This can be worn either for traveling or just for lounging around with friends or family. My favorite summer suit is black and grey in design, but there are plenty of colour options available.
When packing your travel wear, you need to keep a few things in mind. Think about how long you will be staying, as well as where you will be. It will be easier to get your clothes dirty or damp when you’re staying in a hotel than when you’re staying in an airport.
Be sure to buy clothes that don’t get too hot or cold very quickly. Keep yourself comfortable as you try to figure out what clothes to wear on the plane.
Also take into consideration what you’ll be doing with the clothes while you’re on the plane. Do you plan to put them on a clothesline? If so, then choose clothes with elasticity and a good fit.
Putting on clothes on a clothesline is a great way to steam clean your clothes, but I don’t suggest it if you’re going to be flying in them. I would recommend not putting clothes that you plan to wear for a long time on a plane unless you’re going to buy another outfit. That way, if you lose or break your clothes, you’ll still have something to replace them with.
When taking your cotton clothes off on the plane, use the same method you did to put them on. Press your clothes so they are dry and without wrinkles. You’ll be amazed at how much better they will last.
It’s important to think about the nature of your travel. If you’re on a trip with kids, look for clothes that will be easy to carry when you have to walk. These tend to be more durable and child friendly.
