How to look & feel fabulous on your short-haul flight
Want to look fabulous when travelling?
Of course you do. It’s the start of your holiday!
The challenge is to look pulled together and stylish, whilst having a certain amount of practicality because, let’s face it, even short-haul travel can be quite tough and lengthy these days as we all have to go through Airport Security. (And yes, we know it’s essential but it can certainly suck the joy out of flying).
Looking chic and on-trend requires putting together a clever outfit that will not be restrictive and will survive being crushed into a fastened seat-belt for a couple of hours. In addition, shoes which look good, but are easy to remove and put back on at Security are also vital. Anything with zips or metal buckles could get the alarm bells ringing…
Looking good when flying – whether you are heading for a city-break weekend or a fortnight by a beach – is all about strong shapes and great colours. (Oh yes, and outfits that don’t need a lot of accessorising as that involves too much annoying removal and putting back on).
I am a big fan of the maxi dress (a casual one, obvs) as I will happily team a maxi with flat, slip-on shoes. Cyndy prefers jeans and a great top. But we both think a roomy bag is essential to carry all our travel bits, which will always include a pashmina or large wrap. You never know whether the cabin temperature will be set to just nice, or absolutely freezing! And if your flight arrives in the evening, the wrap will come in very handy for onward travel.
So, here are a few suggestions on how to dress your best for a short-haul flight…
