Must Have Summer Travel Outfits You Should Be Wearing When You Fly

Summer is here, and we know you, are more than excited to push through with all the trips that you have been planning for almost the entire year. For sure, you already have everything all figured out—where you will stay, what activities you will do and even, how much you are going to spend. But wait, there is something you might be missing out—what you will wear while flying.

Today, women no longer dress to the nines when going to the airport which is considered to be a lot more practical given the fact that dresses, skirts or high heels will prevent you from being comfortable during a long flight. However, this does not mean that you should no longer put some thought on what you should wear when flying.

No matter how uncomfortable flying can be, it is still a must that you still put some effort on your summer travel outfits. After all, you must keep in mind that what you wear during your flight would be your first outfit that you will have at your first destination, so you need to make the right impression. If you are wondering what to wear when you fly, here are some of the best travel outfits for long flights.


1. Turtleneck Sweater

Yes, I know—it can get extremely hot during the summer season, but please be reminded that the air conditioning system in the airport and most especially on the plane is always on full blast so you would need something to cover you up and keep you warm during the entire flight.
In addition to the fact that the turtle neckline can keep your neck feeling warm, the style adds a touch of sophistication and injects a polished look in your supposedly comfortable outfit. Now, you can wear something that you can snuggle into during your long flight and will still make you look stylish when you disembark.

How to Style It: Pair your sweater with an equally comfortable and stylish flare pants for an eye-catching ensemble.


2. Slip On Footwear

When you are at the airport, you will have to pass through various security lines where you will be required to remove your footwear along with other types of accessories that you have on (i.e. necklace, rings, belts and many more). Because of this, you should use a footwear that is easy to remove and put on. Lucky for you, there are plenty of available slip on shoes nowadays.

Some of the ones that you can enjoy wearing are loafers, flats and many more.

How to Style It: Add a pop of color to a basic and neutral ensemble by wearing a colorful loafer. On the other hand, you can tame a playful and colorful outfit by pairing it with a neutral colored flat slip on footwear.



3. Compression Leggings




In addition to comfort, being on a long haul flight may also pose some health hazards. This is because of the pressure in the body that you can get from long hours of sitting on the plane. Well, you will be surprised to know that there is one stylish clothing that you can wear to prevent this from happening—the compression leggings.
These leggings look like your usual athletic wear, but it helps to keep suck things up to prevent swelling of your legs.

How to Style It: Go all-out athleisure by wearing your leggings with a tank top and leather jacket and your trusty pair of sneakers. Oh, and do not forget your cap too! You will surely need it!


4. Midi Skirt




You may think that skirts are a big no-no when traveling because they will make you feel uncomfortable but they are actually your best option if you wish to free up your legs. After all, it is a great invitation for you to curl up your legs inside the skirt. The key here is in choosing the right length. If you will be going on a flight, the midi skirt length is the most suitable option for you. Just make sure that you look for fabrics that are heavy so you can keep your legs warm. Some of the recommended fabrics are thick jersey or suede.

How To Style It: Keep things looking cool and casual by pairing your midi skirt with long sleeve and your favorite pair of white sneakers. You can also try pairing it with a tank top and cardigan so you can simply remove the cardigan once you have reached your destination.


5. Gaucho




Gaucho has the silhouette of square pants, but it is a bit more structured because of the type of fabric used to create it. Ditch the flimsy fabric and complicated pleats design and opt for a simple and much more laidback fall version of this plane pants.

This type of bottoms actually gives you the best of both worlds as it is not restrictive (like a skirt) and it can keep your legs warm (like pants would do!). In addition to that, the clean lines and amazing fabric of these pants will make you look polished and fashion-ready.

How to Style It: Since the pants are already wide enough, you should balance it out by wearing a tight fitting top (long sleeve, blouse or tank top). If you want to look laid back, pair it with mandals, or you can opt for sneakers too.

There is no denying the fact that you need to put comfort above all when choosing travel clothes for women. But that does not necessarily mean that you should forego style altogether. For your information, comfort and style may go in hand, especially when you are traveling, if you will just be wise with your choices. Keep in mind the outfits that we have above so you can feel comfortable and look stylish in your next flight! With these, you will feel comfortable during your long flight plus you can look polished enough for your arrival at your destination. Now, isn’t that hitting two birds with one stone?
