Any plane ride can be an enjoyable experience (even a long haul one) as long as you’re wearing the appropriate outfit. Just as you aim to be comfortable for the duration of your flight, the professional chauffeurs at our St. Louis Airport Transportation Service are also trained to provide the best possible ride experience. With our luxury cars, you’ll get to stretch out your legs and sit back in comfort while traveling in absolute safety to your destination.
Since comfort is paramount for a comfortable trip, here are some essential outfit tips to remember when going on your next flight:
Wear More Than One Layer
Layers, layers, layers. The only time you should stop putting on more layers is when you start to go from comfortable to uncomfortable. Otherwise, it’s always good to have a few extra clothing options on your own body during the flight. That’s not to say you should be wearing two pairs of pants. Depending on the temperature in the plane and your destination of choice, you’ll want to ensure that you’re always prepared to ‘weather’ whatever hot or cold environment you end up in. Also, remember to wear layers that you can easily take off if necessary.
Choose Breathable Fabrics
Your skin needs to breathe so you should definitely dress comfortably for your flight with breathable material. Since we sweat all the time (even while motionless), it makes sense to wear clothing that not only allows good air flow but also dries up quickly. Nobody likes to sit for long hours in their own sweat so do yourself a favor and opt for natural fabrics like cotton, linen, and silk for your next flight.
Invest in Compression Legwear
If you already have an underlying medical condition that is affected by long flights or frequent flying, you should consider wearing compression legwear or socks. The amount of time spent not moving in a single position can be very taxing on our body and blood circulation. Compression legwear helps to regulate our blood flow and keeps us that little bit warmer and comfortable. It also ensures that we do not develop deep vein thrombosis (DVT) as that can be deadly if not treated.
Unless you’re already dressed to go once the plane touches down, you’ll want to be wearing something that you can keep on for the next 24 hours. It’s definitely not unusual for luggage to get delayed or lost in transition and you might not feel comfortable for quite a long time. To avoid this, make sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes that are at least presentable, so you’ll be able to walk around without feeling self-conscious.
Consider a Hoodie
There’s definitely nothing wrong with wearing a hoodie, especially on a plane ride. With the hood up, you can effectively convey that you don’t want to be disturbed and it gives you just the right amount of privacy. If your neighbor decides to turn on the lights (for whatever reason), you can also pull the hood lower down and get a free eye mask.
