What NOT to Wear on an Airplane

When I travel, my outfit choice is part of my packing routine.  If you travel like me, knowing what to wear on the airplane takes time.  I want to dress comfortably, I want to feel confident in my outfit, and I definitely do not want to worry about what I’m wearing when I fly.  However, there are 8 things you should not wear on an airplane.

I have worn all eight, and this idea hit me during my most recent trip in an airplane. 

Three Things to Wear on an Airplane

Whether you’re flying on a transatlantic flight or a flight to Europe, there are three things you should wear on the airplane. I’ve created several YouTube videos about travel so check out my LauriePOP Channel sometime.airplane-three-things-wear

Airline travel outfits should be smart.  These three things to wear on an airplane will help you mix and match during your vacation.

Why should you care about what to wear on the airplane to Europe?

Why Care?
Bring Sexy Back (haha)
Comfort
Warmth
Space

  • Justin Timberlake would be appalled at what I’ve worn to the airport; that’s probably what led him to performing that son way back when.  But after many flights across the pond and the waves of grain, I’ve figured out non-frumpy things to wear.
  • Sitting for hours is awesome in yoga pants, so a tight waist band should be in the suitcase not in Seat 22E.
  • Some transatlantic flights are freezing.  Some European flights are hot, depending on where you are sitting.  Be prepared with an extra layer that can be worn or shed.
  • Wearing pieces on an airplane that can be worn other times during the trip is just smart.  Saves space in your carry on suitcase and saves you money because you packed efficiently in your carryon suitcase.  Is that two words or just one??

Tunic

I stumbled upon a gray tunic extender like this, but black was more versatile.  My gray one was a Medium, and this extender is Small.  It’s just a tad shorter.  They come in like 20 colors!

By the way, I’m a size 10 and 5’8″.  THE ONE REASON I love this and wear it is because it hangs correctly!  It doesn’t cling.  It hits mid to upper thigh, so proportionally you’re correct. three-things-wear-airplane-transatlantic-european-flight

You can see that this tunic can look dressier as well as more casual.

I didn’t want the lace-bottomed ones, although I’ve seen some that are adorable.  I just didn’t feel comfortable styling that type, and I liked the one-and-done of this extenderwear-three-things-airplane

I’ve even put a tee on top of my gray extender.  Check out my YouTube Channel for more inspiration and Ideas That POP

From last Fall

I just love this in black because it can get dirty, doesn’t wrinkle easily, and can be paired with so many layering pieces for a transatlantic flight.

Shoe

I add the most comfortable shoe to travel and sightsee in to make it more sporty.  No longer am I that American wearing frumpy clothes with my white Asics abroad.  I am super picky about shoe comfort when traveling.  That is why I have bought my second pair.  I even made a YouTube video about this comfortable shoe for travel.  I cannot wear Skechers because they’re not supportive enough.

shoes-three-things-airplanecomfortshoes

If you’re going to Ireland or a rainy location, I do not recommend these shoes.  The airy, super light upper mesh will allow rain drops to pour in.  But if you will have moderate temps or are running through an airport, I love them!  AND THEY’RE UNDER $30!

Leggings

No more swollen calves for me after a long haul flight!  These compression leggings really do work!  Plus they’re high waisted.  I’m wearing a size Medium.  I only wear these flip flops in the airport and at restaurants because they’re not super supportive.  As soon as I get on the airplane, I put on socks and slip on shoes.  You can see them in this video.

These capri gray ones are not compression so I wear them when sight seeing.

If you start with three things to wear on the airplane to Europe or on a transatlantic flight, you will be steps ahead in the packing process.   Let me know where you wear your tunic, shoes, and leggings!

The Most Comfortable Shoes for Travel

These are the most comfortable shoes for travel as a woman!  I wear these Wild Diva shoes when I travel on an airplane alot.  When I travel, I usually travel with tennis shoes because they are the most comfortable shoes for me.  But then my travel outfits feel frumpy.  These comfortable Wild Diva shoes for travel help with the cuteness factor and still have cushion, comfort, and some support.  They are slip on, but they have laces that hide.  The shape is feminine and yet sporty. wilddivashoes

Now they are not my Asics.  If you saw me in Europe last year, I was the stereotypical American with white Asics on because comfort is key to me when traveling!  I am taking these Wild Diva shoes to Europe for our 2017 vacation in Italy.  You cannot tighten them with the laces.  The fit is true to size.  I have had these shoes for almost a year, and I don’t wear socks with them. I should probably start. comfortableshoestravel

When I want to wear a casual dress to sightsee, these shoes are my go to shoes.  I look feminine and cute while not feeling frumpy.  And my feet are fine!  I’m done with sandals after about an hour-especially on cobblestone roads or tiled museums.

They’re great for the airplane too. Women’s shoes take up so much space in a carryon suitcase so being able to wear these shoes for comfort and for cuteness while traveling is a double bonus.  My feet are supported a bit.  I cannot wear Skechers.  I do think these are the best shoes for traveling in Europe if that’s you this 2017 summer.

I hurt a toe last year, and the doctor told me to wear Asics with a letter followed by numbers for exercise.  Skechers give me absolutely no support.  Teva sandals with velcro are great for running errands, but not for my dresses while I’m traveling.  That’s my personal opinion of myself.  I feel too rugged in that style.  So just know that I am picky with my travel shoes. shoesairplane

I wear these shoes with shorts and with cute dresses.  I like them so much with leggings too.

They’re also a neutral color so they don’t have to be paired with black or white.
