    I wear jeans and a sweatshirt, with layers.  I always get hot right away on a plane and then freezing.  I wear like mascara and eyeliner but that’s it.  Who cares what others wear?  I mean, I know how you feel — I always feel underdressed.  But then I remind myself that I am comfortable, and since I care more about being comfortable than I do about being fashionable…I’m okay with it.

    I do my normal makeup (which isn’t much). Comfy jeans (the ones that are a little big). A tshirt and then a sweater. Some planes are really really cold so I always have a sweater, jacket, blanket, etc.

    The only time I wore yoga pants was when I got upgraded to business class on a flight to London. they have those lie flat beds so I quickly grabbed yoga pants from my suitcase and changed so I could sleep comfortably 🙂

    I use to fly a lot for work and I always wore Lululemon as you can’t beat the comfort.

    Usually leggings with a long shirt, and a sweater. If I’m going somewhere warm then I’ll wear flip flops, if I’m going somewhere cooler then usually Uggs. I wear my normal every day makeup.

    @cooperlove:  Loose clothing with a sweatshirt and tennis shoes.  As for makeup, I usually wait until after I land to put it on so it’s fresh and not smudged from napping.

    Loose clothing to prevent blood clots.  Sweatshirt because I tend to get cold.  Tennis shoes because they protect your feet better than flipflops or sandals in case of an emergency landing or evacuation of the plane.

    I wear jeans, comfy shirt, closed-toe shoes, no heels.  It’s amazing how many women I see in airports in strappy sandals or high heels. Crashes are extremely rare but I wouldn’t want to be running away from one in flip-flops with all that burning debris around, and they’ll make you take your heels off to go down the emergency slide because they damage the slides. Run away from a plane crash in my bare feet? No thanks.

    If I’m flying long-haul International it’s always in business/first and I’ll change into my jammies once we’re up in the air.

    I’ve taken multiple overseas flights, and I always wear comfy jeans (not skin tight ones), a tshirt, socks, and tennis shoes. I’ll usually carry a cardigan with me in case I get a little chilly. I never wear make up because I want to try to sleep on these flights without worrying about smudging my mascara or anything.

    To some I’m underdressed, to others I am overdressed. Even in economy there are women with a full face of make up and heels, and then others in their sweats and hoodies.

    Something comfortable. If I won’t have a chance to go to a hotel to change before doing whatever, I’ll pack “real” clothes in my carry-on. I don’t care if people think I look sloppy. I usually make fun of people dressed up on the plane, so I’m judging them as much as they’re judging me, lol.

    @cooperlove:  I wear comfies for the airplane ride. I have been known to change into my comfies in the washroom near the boarding gate and then change back into nicer clothes before the plane lands, but it all depends on where I am going and for what reason. No matter what I wear on my feet I always pack socks in my carry-on so I can kick my shoes off and have warm feet on the plane.  I also wear a full face of makeup every day and flying is no different.

    @cooperlove:  When I fly long-haul (9-11 hours), my staple outfit is:

    White linen pants

    Black fitted vest-top/t-shirt

    Cardigan (either light brown/tan or grey)

    Black linen jacket

    Black pashmina

    Black patent smart flat deisgner sandals


    I like to look nice, and I like to wear something that’s warm enough on the plane, but cool enough for when I land in the blazing heat. I always wear lots of layers as it tends to be cool at the airport and on the plane, and I hate being cold. I also pack thick socks in my carry-on which I wear in-flight (unless I’m nipping to the loo). My sandals are super comfy and slip-on, so easy to take on and off on the plane and at security.

    Make-up wise, I wear my usual make-up: foundation, bronzer, and mascara.

    @cooperlove:  I usually do stretch jeans or leggings with a cute trip/tunic with a sweater in case I get chilly and cute flats. I like to be comfy but still look cute.

    Since I usually take early morning flights, it’s jeans, sandals, a decent top, and a cardigan. I don’t understand why people dress up for flights–it’s a freaking airplane. No one is going to see you.

    I wear just casual clothes I’d go to the mall or something in.. Fiance and I are going to Dominican in Aug. I’m going to wear black 3/4 length tights and an off the shoulder boyfriend tee.. I’ll probably also wear basic foundation/mascara too 🙂

    ETA: The longest flights I’ve been on are only about 4 hours which is about my max. I don’t have a good flying stomach lol
