6 Tips to dress right on a long flight

Stock Photo by Sean Locke www.digitalplanetdesign.com

Riding in a plane 5,000ft above the ground can be a tricky situation. One slip and an entire cabin can go tumbling to ground zero. While you really want to focus your mind on staying positive throughout the journey, you do not want to live through the ride with feelings of unease due to wearing the wrong outfit.

While staying comfortable should be at the top of your priority list, a hoodie and worn flip-flops may be a little too much of a fashion statement. To help you get a grip on the art of looking flawless on a plane, Howng.com Africa’s largest hotel booking portal has compiled this list of 5 steps to dressing for a long flight.

Choose the right underwear

Underwear…the one thing people take for granted while dressing for the road. When planning for a flight scheduled to take longer than 2 hours, avoid putting on items made from tight or scratchy fabric like nylon and lace which will keep you tweaking your knickers all through. Easy-to-wear textiles like cotton can save you a ton of embarrassment.

Make a little effort

Enroute Lagos and looking to be treated like royalty aboard a plane? Then dress fab! Putting a little thought in an attire can open doors of favour from the flight attendant or high-net worth passenger in the next seat. Whilesporting a super glamorous look may be over the top, a touch of class reflected through the choice of clothing shows how much value one places on themselves and their time.

Wear dark colours

Although aeroplanes usually have clean environments, there’s a large degree of bumping and squeezing that takes place while people get on or off the aircraft. This shoving can lead to minor accidents and ruin a brightly coloured shirt. To stay safe, pick darker colours.

Keep the socks on

Before you leave your hotel room, check your purse for a pair of socks. Sitting in one position for a long period of time in a pressurized cabin can cause most people to retain water in their feet. In order to avoid the puffiness, try packing along a pair of stiff stockings known as ‘compression socks’. The firmness of these socks can prevent swelling and help regulate blood circulation around the legs.

Take a cardigan with you

It can get really cold in a cabin and just as it’s a great idea to protect the legs in-flight, it is equally important that top section the body stays warm. Throwing on a cardigan is a good way to keep the body snug throughout the flight.

Comfy shoes

Soft ballet pumps for summer and fluffy boots for cold weather are the ideal footwear for an extended trip. Although some passengers would rather stick to the traditional sandals, they give your feet room to expand in-flight, leading to subsequent pain and swelling. If you decide to take off your shoes mid-air, ensure it’s only for a short period or put on your band socks to stay on the safe side
