You’ll find plenty of articles and advice about how to dress for a flight, but I thought we’d turn it around and talk about the things not to wear on a plane. When you read an article on what to wear, it can be somewhat annoying because you might recognize that you don’t have those items in your wardrobe and you don’t really want to splash out on traveling clothes. If you know the things not to wear on a plane, you can eliminate those when you’re scouring your closet, and choose from the rest of your wardrobe.
1. Inappropriate Shoes
Inappropriate footwear is at the top of the list of things not to wear on a plane. But that can mean a few different things. Tight footwear can cause you discomfort on long flights as your feet may swell. Complicated footwear with multiple buckles or long, long laces will slow you down when going through airport security and not endear you to your fellow passengers. Towering high stilettos can be less than fabulous if you have to clamber in an ungainly manner up the airplane steps with your carry-on bag!
