So, on Saturday I’m heading out for a week in California with an itinerary on Saturday that includes a 3-hour drive to the airport, 2 hours in the airport, 4.5 hour flight, another hour in a different airport, another hour of flight, and finally, an hour drive to the hotel. Pretty crazy day. I’ll be travelling with my husband and his boss, who are both really casual guys (as opposed to professional, ie. the dress code in their office includes yoga pants, etc.). For the day of travelling (ONLY – not for dinners or any other time) I had planned on wearing a jean blouse/top, black yoga pants, birks and shades (like this: http://ind.ccio.co/yD/9A/WB/518618331802299461kkF4x1Ac.jpg).
I was talking with my co-worker, who said she would never dream of wearing yoga pants to the airport and why can’t I just wear jeans like a normal person? I suppose I can but… I guess I didn’t think it really mattered.

wear them. it’s for your comfort, not hers.

I’ve worn jeans, dresses, yoga pants, and even pajama pants, although that was on a red-eye flight home during college. Wear whatever is comfortable for you. If you’re really having second-thoughts, maybe ask your husband what he thinks, since it’s his boss that you’re traveling with, but nevermind this co-worker. Enjoy your trip! 🙂

I read an article yesterday where the writer was slagging off everyone who didn’t dress up at the airport…it had me seething!! I generally wear yoga pants with a tee shirt when I travel, and I see nothing wrong with wanting to be comfortable. Especially on long flights!

anonybee0810: wear whatever you want. Yoga pants are completely acceptable for traveling. the one place i’m not looking at people’s fashion choices is the airport!! You should be comfortable. And yoga pants are just that. Don’t think too much about this!

My abdominal region can swell up really badly, it isn’t just typical bloating. Flying can make it worse. I don’t think I’ve ever worn jeans to an airport. Besides, it’s less metal when going through those detectors!

I always wear yoga pants or leggings when I fly, even for business. I’ll wear nice leggings, a long tank top, blazer, and loafers.

Yes, definitely wear yoga pants. What I don’t get is when people where yoga pants and a yoga/workout top. That to me seems silly – unless you are going straight to run a 5k or something. And I usually like the loose top with yoga pants look, something a little longer that covers your butt a little. Otherwise tight pants & tight top can be a little revealing.

Oh hell no. If I’m taking a long non-work-related flight, I will definitely be in my lulus.
I admire (I guess) people who can travel long hours in dress pants, high heels, etc. but that’s just not me. Who am I at the airport to impress? Function over form wins every time for me. haha

The look that you linked to is wayyyyy more dressed up than me at the airport! It’s an airport, be comforatble, nobody cares, they’re more concerned about not getting an “enhanced” pat down than whether you are in fashion.

I would never wear anything other than sweatpants to the airport unless I had a meeting right when I landed… And I fly a lot. No point in dressing up with all the crazy logistics and being crammed into a plane/shuffled around.

I think it’s perfectly reasonable to wear comfy clothes when traveling. Yoga pants, maxi skirts, leggings = all yes in my book.

Woa what’s with all the automatic linking to amazon?

I HATE those articles where people pick apart airport fashion. Seriously? I used to travel at least 3 times a week for my last job. If I had to be at a meeting immediately after arriving then yes I would be dressed up. If not… yoga pants all the way! I always look at those women wearing stilettos and tiny skirts on planes and wonder how they do it. And forget about the person who says to wear jeans like a “normal person.” Anyone who has gone a full day of travel in jeans including sitting for 4+ hours can tell you that saggy jean butt is not in any way better looking than yoga pants.
