Modern aircraft are capable of flying for very long distances, so it’s not unusual for people to find themselves onboard a flight that lasts for fifteen hours or more. For this reason, it’s very important for passengers to dress comfortably for a flight.
The history of dressing for travel
Back in the 1950s and 1960s, people dressed up in order to get on a plane. Air travel was the reserve of the rich and even relatively well-off middle class families rarely got on board a plane. The dress code was suits and ties (and sometimes dinner jackets) for men and cocktail dresses for women. Even children would wear their Sunday best when they had the chance to fly. These dress codes gradually relaxed in the 1970s and 80s as flying became accessible to more people and became a more commonplace event. Even in business or first class cabins, it’s common to see people selecting comfortable clothes in order to fly. Some people even change into pajamas in order to be completely comfortable onboard very long flights. High-heeled shoes have also become less common among women travelling by air. The majority now choose to wear comfortable flat shoes or even trainers – which are also much safer in the unlikely event of an emergency.
Travel clothing in the 2020s
Nowadays, people turn to websites like NA-KD UK when they are deciding what to wear on a plane. These websites offer fashionable yet comfortable clothing that is suitable for almost any activity. Many of the clothes on offer are light wearing and ideal for people that will be sitting down for an extended period of time. They are also extremely breathable, which is important in the sometimes dry atmosphere of an aircraft.
Being comfortable and wearing practical clothes is the key to having an enjoyable flight. A little bit of advance wardrobe planning can go a long way in travel.
