So what do you wear to the airport?
Well clothes, guys, I was kind of hoping that went without saying. But anyway. There are some variables to consider here but here are some tips:
Comfortable shoes, well of course I would recommend you always wear sensible shoes but especially when you might have to do a mad dash to check in on time, wander aimlessly around the airport for 3 hrs trying to find a decent vegetarian sandwich, or sit for 10hrs with no leg room.
Also, if you wear anything approaching a boot make sure they are easy to get on and off as you will have to remove them as you go through security. I would say don’t wear boots but if they are an integral part of your holiday clothes then you probably should as it will open up some space in your suitcase for other books.
Jeans are king, or something like them. Nothing too tight around the tummy if you’re on a long haul, of course people extol the virtues of leggings for such activities but of course leggings are not really trousers and should not be worn outside unless under skirts…
I personally, would be wary of excessive pockets on trousers but that may be because, as a women, I have never seen a pocket and don’t understand them…Anyway, if you have lots of pockets you’ll end up putting your keys and money in them and then get a pat down from security when you forget to take them out.
I opt for layers on my top half. The reasoning being that I like in a cold country and usually fly early in the morning so it’s cold but planes can get quite toasty when they’re crammed full of yucky sweart people. Also, again, wearing all your clothes on the plane saves space in your suitcase for nail polish or whatever…
Of course if you live in a hot country and you’re flying to an equally hot country then seven cardigans may not make as much sense…I have been told my layering is a bit much in the UK…
Belts, watches, jewellery, metal hair accessories and all those kind of unnecessay doo dads until you get through security- just put ’em in your hand luggage. If only for the person behind you in the queue who has to wait until you’ve undressed yourself. I also strongly suspect that the underwire in my bra set off a few detectors which is annoying so bear that in mind and opt for an unwired bra if possible.
And those are some tips. Hope you enjoyed, see you next time.
