Mastering the art of packing is usually given more attention than what to actually wear on a flight.. We’ve been through a bunch or trial and error episodes, and sometimes swearing on our lives to never repeat a bad choice of clothing on a flight again.. Below, we’ve curated a list of the 10 worst things you must avoid wearing to the airport.. Check them now and thank us later! Happy travels..
1 || Too Much Metal
Too many bobby pins, belts, accessories, piercings as well as overly studded clothes, shoes and bags will set off the metal detector. Travel lighter..
2 || Open-Toe Shoes
Airplanes can get really cold, if you’re not covering your toes you will freeze as exposed limbs are the most sensitive and enough to keep you cold when bare.. Go for sneakers or ankle boots with socks..
3 || Fussy Shoes
Especially complicated boots, gladiator sandals, high top shoe styles or anything else that requires a lot of lacing, fastening, or tugging ..Remember, security measures will require you to take off and put on your shoes multiple times. You will end up holding up the line behind you and probably arriving late at the gate.. Slip-on sneakers are hassle-free…
4 || High-Rise Stiff Trousers
If you’re someone who is prone to flight bloating, going for your high-rise 100% cotton jeans is a big mistake. Always wear bottoms with stretchy garments, leave some room for that anticipated bloating episode..
5 || Flying Jacket-Less
Just like you need your toes safe and warm the same goes to your upper body.. Always make sure you bring a jacket warm enough no matter the season..
6 || Shorts
Shorts on a plane is a bad idea, as airplane seats are literally a nest of germs and chances are you’ll catch up something that could cause skin eruptions.
7 || Heavy Makeup
Especially to a long flight, your skin needs to breathe, clogging your skin with heavy powders and foundations will not only add to the dryness of a plane’s environment, but will cause breakouts as the surroundings might be filled with viruses and bacteria.
8 || Offensive Slogan T-shirts
Not only do offensive clothing get you kicked off a plane, but it could also draw extra attention from TSA agents. Security agents may pull you aside for additional screening if they perceive a threatening or questionable message on your slogan T-shirt. Bottom line: If you wouldn’t wear it to a family-friendly restaurant or even to church, don’t wear it for air travel..
9 || Over-sized And Puffy Outerwear
Outerwear must be removed and placed into a bin before passing through the scanner, always go for slimmer coats or jackets as the bin usually provided at security checks is not that big..
10 || Heavy Perfumes
Too much cologne might be bothersome to nearby travelers. Be mindful, some are allergic, others might be pregnant! Heavy fragrances must be avoided and replaced by softer body mists or perfumes..
