For short flights, I really just tend to wear whatever. Socks are a good idea, yes, but esp in summer (and for me, generally, whole year around) Flip Flops/Sandals are the one and only shoe choice during flights. There's more freedom for the feet, and when your toes get cold, you can put the socks on or put them on your seat and wriggle them under the blanket/pashmina.
Another good choice is a pair of flats. Or, when you're a guy, light leather loafers or slip-ons. Depending on your look, either one of them will work. They don't need socks and can easily be slipped on and off.
I'm going on summer holiday from Europe to LA -13 hours flight. This is a lot different from when I travel for business like Europe - Singapore ot Hong Kong - I usually wear my business suit and it the plane I change in a nice sporty PJ.
Now I feel a bit lost as LA is very relaxed and I'm going on vacation - what would you say about that outfit? http://www.pinkpashmina.com/ http://cache.net-a-porter.com/ http://www.bagsnob.com/
PSq my bag is more used, soft slouchy and not that bright
fashionista-ta, thank you ! The cardigan is just an example - I have one RL -much lighter that is very similar in color - I'll use it in the plane as it really gets cold in it.
I just didn't want to have a mathcing top for the pants
I'm always on early flights and the air conditioning in planes can be brutal, so I layer - a pair of slim-fit jeans, a light cotton tee or tank top with a jumper or hoodie, socks and trainers. I always bring a pair of sunglasses on the plane to pop on at the other end so I can swan out through Arrivals and into the sun
A week from this Sunday I'll be flying out to Honolulu (I shouldn't be complaining ), so naturally I'm stressing over what to wear on the airplane. What I'm looking for is a dress that I wouldn't mind wearing for the five or so hours I'll be on the airplane, but will also look good when I arrive at the airport.
