Are you looking for tips and ideas on what to wear on a plane in summer? Here are some of my favorite summer travel outfits.
Although traveling can be a lot of fun, it can definitely be tricky when it comes to figuring out what to wear on a flight. I’ve had times when I was too hot, too cold, underdressed, or overdressed. I have learned many lessons from the numerous flights I’ve taken. I’m sharing my favorite outfits to wear so that you can feel comfortable yet chic on your next flight.
This post is all about what to wear on a plane in summer.
The Best Tips On What To Wear On A Plane In Summer
What To Wear On A Long Flight
Long flights are particularly tough on the body. Between being cramped in a small seat for hours upon hours to not being able to eat a nourishing meal (unless you splurge on first class). Comfort is an absolute MUST on a long-haul flight.
As someone who has done a lot of traveling, I have mastered the art of traveling comfortably out of necessity. My first tips are to LAYER. For longer flights, I will usually wear one of my favorite sets from Nike (LINKS ABOVE) and a cotton short sleeve t-shirt underneath. Cotton is a breathable fabric that is much better for your skin. I avoid wearing tight leggings because I find that on long flights my legs can swell a bit. The constricted feeling of a tighter legging is just not my cup of tea. If it is a short flight I may throw on some lululemon leggings but for long-haul flights that is a definite no.
If I am traveling on a long-haul flight in the summer, I usually pack a change of outfit (including underwear). Once I land, I can hop right out of my set and into a summer outfit. Depending on how far the hotel is from the airport/relevant conditions I may keep my tracksuit on until I can shower in the hotel room.
What To Wear To The Airport In Summer
If I am on a shorter flight, I will generally choose between two options. First is the option above if I’m looking for uber comfort. My second option is usually a maxi dress with either a denim jacket or a cardigan.
One of the reasons I love to wear a maxi dress on a short flight is that it is super easy. You just throw it on and go. Also, my legs are super free to move as they please hehe. The only downside is that if your maxi dress is sleeveless or has a spaghetti strap, you may find your arms feeling cold while in the air. This is why I always have a denim jacket or cardigan in my carry-on. Once you arrive at your destination, you can simply remove the jacket and go.
What To Wear With Leggings On A Plane
This one is for the girls that need to wear leggings on a plane. I completely get it. As mentioned above, I try to avoid wearing leggings on a plane. The only exception is when the flight is on the shorter side (under 3 hours). If you read this blog (or follow me on Instagram), you will undoubtedly know that I am a lululemon addict. I will usually throw on a black t-shirt with my black lululemon leggings and either a denim jacket or cardigan and go. Another option (depending on the destination you are flying out of) is a light bomber jacket in a fun print.
