So you finally have your passport packed, your visa ready, a plane to catch, but nothing to wear. We’d recommend that you avoid overthinking about it too much, but let’s be real – we’re the kind of girls who’d live for any excuse to dress up. Still, airport fashion should be comfortable. With that in mind, we listed down the top six pieces that you should never wear on a long flight – especially if these pieces are only bound to add to your inevitable travel pains.

Poplin Fabric

Not a huge fan of wrinkled clothes? If so, then we recommend that you steer clear from clothing pieces made of poplin fabric. This classic fabric may look polished and prim before boarding, but after six hours of flight, you’ll only end up looking like crumpled piece of paper that’s lurking at the bottom of your carry-on luggage.

Rompers

If you still want to us to elaborate on this one, allow us to ask you one question: how will you pee comfortably during your flight? Remember, cabin lavatories are not the best place to wrestle with a wardrobe malfunction.

White Pants

Wearing white pants can be risky in almost any situation, and even more so when you’re riding a plane. A jolt of mid-flight turbulence could cause you to spill your drink all over your clothes, and you could accidentally sit on something you shouldn’t have. Surely, you wouldn’t want to deal with this kind of trouble mid-flight.

Skyscraper Stilettos

You will never know when you need to do some panic running, and you certainly wouldn’t want to try walking down that wobbly, narrow airplane aisles while wearing those heels. Trust us, it won’t be a pretty sight if you fall flat on your face, so spare yourself the embarrassment.

Lace-Up Shoes

Chances are you’ll be asked to slip off your footwear for pre-flight inspection, so save yourself the time and trouble of lacing up your shoes again. Instead, opt for a pair of kicks that’s easy to slide on and off.

Perfume

Avoid wearing this one for the sake of your fellow passengers. Some passengers might find your perfume offensive, while others might suffer allergic reactions to synthetic fragrances. If you really want to smell good upon arriving to your destination, simply pack a sample size of your cologne and apply it once you’ve landed. When it comes to airport fashion, comfort should always trump over style. As much as possible, opt for an outfit that’ll keep you cosy and relaxed, and you’ll likely look chicer than those travellers struggling with their carry-ons because of their four-inch stilettos.
