What to wear on your next flight

Leaving on a jet plane? I can’t guarantee you’ll look like those celebrities papped at the airport looking like they’ve been at a day spa, not on a long-haul flight, but you will hopefully feel a little prepared for your next escape with a few of my tried and true tips and few cleverly chose SYTL pieces.
 
1. What you choose to wear on a flight – long or short haul – should have comfort as a priority. There is nothing worse than being seated for any period of time and feeling like your clothes are leaving permanent creases and indentations on your body.

2. The longer the flight, the more layers you’ll need. Cabin air-conditioning is icy. Conversely, I’ve been in situations on a plane on the tarmac where the heating has been ramped up and I’ve needed to take off layers to suit. Base your outfit around leggings or super stretch jeans and add light tops and outer layers as required.

3. Pack a change of clothes if doing a long-haul flight. You may not be able to shower but adding on fresh clothes will give you a bit of a lift at the end of your journey. This extra set of clothes is also an insurance policy against getting to the other end and finding your luggage hasn’t been on the same plane as yours. I include a packing cell in my overnight/cabin bag with the change of clothes so it’s all kept together and ready for that freshen up at the other end.

4. Heading to a tropical destination? Still take an extra layer on board with you as conditions in the air can be the the complete opposite of that awaiting you at your balmy destination. Lightweight pants, a tee and a cashmere wrap will work here.

5. Always carry an extra wrap or a scarf in a colour that can hide all manner of spills. I’m a clutzo in the food-spilling-on-oneself department at the best of times. Put me in a confined space when the slightest bump could send your chicken or beef flying into your lap, and I’m bound to “wear” my airline food and drink. I’ve now learned to put my scarf in place around my neck to catch any spills. Yes, as a baby would wear a bib.
