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.”
