when you fly?

This question was on another forum that I go to sometimes and it got some pretty interesting answers... just wondering what TPF ladies wear when flying!

I wear a tunic and pants set from Citiknits. They sell them on QVC. Not necessarily the most stylish outfit - they're polyester knit with an elastic waist - but very comfortable. I have it in black and dress it up with a colorful scarf and a nice bag, of course.

I fly trans-Atlantic a lot and need something I can comfortably sleep in, won't wrinkle and can be washed out in a hotel sink for the flight home and this fits my needs.

I've worn jeans but I wear my most comfortable pair of jeans since I'll be sitting for at least 5 to 6 hours on a plane. A t-shirt and a light jacket and comfortable shoes that I can slip in and out of easily.

For long haul flights, I always wear a tracksuit, or tights with a tunic style top and a sweater with flip flops. Comfort is key when you're flying 10 hours+!

For short haul flights, I wear what I would normally wear on a day-to-day basis.

Comfort first, especially on long-haul flights. I like a knee-length swingy skirt so I can sit cross-legged. I wear mostly crocs onboard now because the feet expands. One time I couldn't put on my shoes after having them off for 13 hours!

I wear linen pants, shirt, and Dr Scholl original sandals. Plus when I fly across continents I keep a pair of Juicy velour hooded tracksuit and a pashmina in my bag, and I change into these in the toilet so I can fall asleep.
For short flight I wear everyday clothes.

Comfort comes first for me when I'm traveling long distances!

We are driving to Paris in about a week and a half and I just plan on wearing tracksuit bottoms and tennis shoes or flip flops (depending on weather)...I hate sitting in the car in jeans for some reason :s

i personally prefer comfort over looking nice.... so i wear sweatpants or running pants... a tank top or tshirt and always bring a zip up cause the planes are always cold....

we flew to CA a couple years ago... and i knew as soon as we got off the plan we had a meeting and i wore jeans and a nice top.... i was so uncomfortable on the pant and my shirt was so wrinkled....

now i just wear comfy clothes and just change once we get off the plane!

if i fly to somewhere warm i wear leggings and a short dress with ballet flats, and i bring flip flops in my hand luggage in case my feet swell or it's really hot. if i'm going somewhere cold i wear a fairly similar outfit but with flat boots and a coat. long haul i usually change on the plane, i wear something like yoga pants, a t-shirt and a cashmere sweater for sleeping. never jeans or anything tight on the plane, i get all fidgety if i'm not comfortable.

Im definitely not stylish. Long haul flights is usually leggings, thongs (as in the shoes), a long top and a jumper.

Short flights is usually jeans or shorts and a top depending where im going.

Jeans or pants, baby-tee, fleece jacket (long-haul flights esp if destination is going to be cold), slip on comfy shoes like Cloggens.
