Okay, tomorrow night I’m gonna fly to Taiwan so this is just the right time to talk about what to wear to the airport.
I had made quite a lot of mistakes in choosing an airport outfit before actually finding the best one for me. Here it is:
I would go with a light cotton T-shirt.
First, it’s comfortable and airy.
Secondly, it survives long flights. When I get off the airplane after hours, the wrinkles on my T-shirt are barely any remarkable things.
Finally, it won’t make me feel sticky when I sweat. With all the luggage and moving before and after the flight, I don’t want to wear things that will heat me up (a polyester shirt, for example).
A jacket to keep me warm on the airplane. Yet it will stay inside my bag until I have already passed the security scan. I don’t want to put it on at home, go to the airport security and take it off, place it in a tray where people place their shoes on. No!!!
A scarf is optional. It works pretty well as a light coat or a temporary pillow.
A pair of pants in dark color. A full length one.
It protects my legs from the coldness on the airplane and any possible scratches/ injuries during the whole travelling process from my home to the hotel at my destination.
I won’t go with light color because it will be a disaster in case of food/ drink spilling during the flight (which is not very unusual).
I choose a pair of pants that will not need a belt. I don’t want to go through the “taking belt off, putting belt back in” thing at the security scan.
I say no to open shoes. When something is dropped to my feet, that’ll be a pain.
No high-heels ‘coz that’s a bigger pain wearing those standing in lines or walking long distances.
I would go with slip-on shoes. They are just so damn convenient and good protectors for my feet. Running would not be a problem with them.
That’s mine favourite airport outfit.
If you also have a favourite one, tell me!
