It is not always pleasant to travel by plane in tight clothes, especially with your face hidden behind a mask. What outfit to wear to feel comfortable 30,000 feet above the ground? Here is our guide to a flight with optimal comfort.
Although some flights are limited, some of us will be flying to our holiday destination this year. If the question of the protective mask does not arise, another question may arise the travel outfit. A mini short to get in the mood. The jean / T-shirt uniform? Our favourite little dress? How about staying in our pyjamas? With the jet lag, the discomfort of economy class and the air conditioning, there are no strict rules about what to wear when flying on a plane.
Jeans too tight?
Admittedly, it makes an hourglass figure and long legs, but the darling slim jeans or denim without stretch is not the friend of long trips. It squeezes the leg, prevents the circulation of the blood, constrains us, and forces us to unbutton it to be able to breathe. We will prefer its stretch version with elastane or, even better, its boyfriend version which, does not hamper the calves.
Comfortable shoes, a must!
At an altitude of over 30,000 feet, they tend to swell because of the pressure in the passenger compartment. Open-toe sandal-type shoes or, worse, shoes with heels are therefore irrelevant. Instead, we will put on comfortable sneakers to prevent our feet from being in bad shape. And to avoid shivering because of the air conditioning, you can obviously take off your shoes and put on a pair of cashmere socks to make yourself comfortable. Soft and luxurious, a feeling of absolute well-being guaranteed.
In a shawl or a scarf, you will curl up!
Even if you go under a blazing sun, a shawl or a light scarf is essential to avoid arriving at a hot destination with a cold due to the air conditioning. And these accessories can also serve as softer and larger blankets than those offered in economy class.
Between jogging bottoms and pyjamas, you will choose
In terms of comfort, there are two schools of style on the plane: the fashionista traveller addicted to precious fabrics or the adept of cocooning streetwear. If you belong to the first category, you put on your silk pyjamas to travel comfortable but preppy. Otherwise, we prefer loose clothes. It will be comfy to lie down, if in first or curl up in economy. It all depends on the budget. Be careful jogging bottoms doesn't mean a threadbare tracksuit. We prefer soft materials such as cashmere or heather fleece for a quickdraw that perfectly mixes comfort and style.
