First post. Slightly nervous. Oh well.

I fly a LOT. I've been flying since I was...what? 6, maybe 9 months old? So I'm really accustomed to getting dressed for flying.

Even if the flight is quite long, I tend to dress up. I don't see a need to get on a plane looking like the living dead in a velour tracksuit... So in saying that, it tends to be skinny jeans, boots (a real hassle at security...), any sort of shirt and a probably my trench coat if I'm flying back to London.

"I mean, if I'm gonna die, I don't want to have 'Juicy' sprawled across my ***." - a woman I overheard in London Gatwick airport.

I may not be perfect, but neither was Tom Ford SS12. And that's good enough for me.

Welcome to TFS!!! Anyways, I think that quote has become my new motto when flying. I've always dressed nicely when traveling but I think this quote will be how I respond to those who ask why I'm so dressed up (A lot of people have asked me why I was wearing a nice outfit for "just a flight" as they put it)!

I don't really dress up for flights but I never dress like a slob. When I go to NY I tend to wear leggings and long top with a oversized cardigan/sweater for the plane with flats (I wear my UGGs on board ONLY, they make great slippers). If I'm going at colder time of year I'll add a coat, and for somewhere hot I tend to wear a maxi dress and sandals.

My main objection to wearing an extravagant outfit is the hassle of going through security but it is still possible to look chic!

On flight skin care
One of the essentials I feel is best to wear is the Amore Pacific hydrating facial mask, it prevents my skin from looking dry and dull when i arrive to my destination from a long flight.

This has probably been posted but I found it hilarious, especially the V.Beckham part

I like to wear something comfortable when I fly. But also something stylish in case the plane crashes.. i don't want to die wearing something sloppy.

I always go with loose fitted dresses or silky, flimsy shorts/pants.

I may be in the minority here, but I always wear jeans on a plane. But then again, I've never been a sweatpants/yoga pants person, so to me they're very comfortable. I wear my thinnest and stretchiest pair so they're not too constricting. I always wear lots of layers because I find the temperate tends to shift a lot.

The one airplane item I can't live without is my cotton circle scarf from American Apparel. I can wear it as a scarf but it doubles as an extra blanket if I get really cold-I never fly without it.

I have to say that not once have I thought about what I planned to wear in terms of the possibility of dying in it. Perhaps because I believe that if I do, nothing will matter less than what I'm wearing

There's a need for more individuality today, and my job is to cater to women, not dictate to them.

I work as an air hostess...I have no choice in what I would like to wear should I die. Sucks to be me!

I would advise wearing light layers. And a scarf doubles up as a real nice pillow.

I've been flying a lot this fall and lately I just wear a pair of my black jeans, chelsea boots, a basic sweater or loose fitting t-shirt, and sunglasses. Despite it being fall/winter, it's still sunny out!

Yesterday I just did a flight for 10 hours straight from the US to Europe.
I totally forgot to pack some socks and would have loved to wear some Uggs.

Anyway, I wore white J Brand high waist jeans, black Tory Burch ballerinas and a blue/green plaid shirt with a boyfriend cut. As they always turn on the air conditioning, I luckily brought a cozy grey scarf and a jacket.
The only thing that I would change next time was bringing Uggs for the plane ride.

I will be on a flight to NYC from the UK in September of this year and was considering my black denim overalls & trainers as they're super comfy, also LOL at the fact I am planning what to wear on this flight 7 months in advance!

I go for jogger jeans-so in right now, and there are tons to choose from out there. A basic tee and always a sweater and/or scarf in my bag. I always freezing on planes. A hat is a good accessory that will hide that travel hair & add instant chic when you arrive to your new destination. One last tip-socks! Bring them in your bag & slip them on when you get settled in your seat. They'll change your life.
