Francy Answers: What to wear to the Airport

20131127-113556.jpg

With the holiday season in full swing, and many people heading to various destinations to celebrate, I often get questions about what to wear to the airport. Here are a few points to keep in mind when dressing to head out on your next voyage.



1. Learn from Onions: Just like Shrek, our outfits can have layers. By dressing in layers you will be comfortable even if the weather from your departing city is completely different from where you're headed. Typically I wear a sweater or fur vest over my outfit as it keeps me warm but is also easy to slip off. Layer and or packing extra items of clothing in your carry on bag allows you to  plus or minus items as needed. This is especially helpful while on flight since airplanes seem to be kept at a constant negative 10 degrees.



2. Think Feet First: No one wants to be that person in line, holding everyone up in the check point, or worse, the person right behind that person in line. Since we all know the drill about going through security already, be sure to keep this in mind when getting dressed. Wear shoes that will be easy to  remove such as flats or boots so you can easily go through security.

3. Be Comfortable but Chic: Whether your flight is 1 hour or 22, no one wants to be stuck in a seat wearing uncomfortable clothes, but that is not an excuse to dress poorly. No matter how early or late your flight is, there is NEVER any excuse to wear pjs or other inappropriate clothes to the airport. Be mindful that the airport is a public place and you never know who you will bump into there (that's me with Jcole for example!) Plan your outfit around a cute but comfy pair of pants or leggings and try to dress up the outfit with accessories. Since you don’t want to go overboard with the jewelry and risk setting off the metal detectors, opt for a chic scarf or even hats to cover up “plane hair.”

  2. I used to dress like a slob to the airport until I saw what the other girls were wearing. These days, I glam up but keep the accessories to the minimum. I hate setting off the metal detectors hahaha!

  4. Nice tips! I agree, you need to wear comfortable clothes because of long flights but you should be fashionable too, just don't overdo it.Speaking of airport fashion, I suddenly remembered something. A member of my favorite boy group wore bathrobe at airport once because he lost a bet. LOL

  11. Great tips! Couldn't agree more with your suggestions. I'm the 1% who still "dresses" to fly but I refuse to give it up - You're showing respect for your fellow passengers by not wearing sweatpants! :)

  16. These are amazing tips. Yes, I absolutely agree with you. Nothing beats a comfy yet cute outfit for airport. I love layering because they are so much more chic-er. And not to mention comfy shoes. It's funny when I see people getting exhausted because they wore 6" high heels to the airport LOL.
    P.S Absolutely love your outfit. The jacket that you're wearing is superb! :)
