When you’re stuck in the arctic tundra during winter all you want to do is take a Caribbean vacation. When you live in the deep south you dream of Northern Europe’s cool winds every summer. But what happens when you finally get to make those trips to the other side of the world? You become completely confused about what to wear for your flight.
Dressing for travel, when you’re traveling between two different climates is incredibly tricky. That’s why we’re here to help. Here’s our suggestion of what to wear when you inevitably find yourself in this sticky situation.
LAYERS!!!! They’re you’re very best friend in this situation. Tank tops, leggings, skirts, dresses, shirts, blouses, cardigans, coats, scarves, and rain gear can all play a part in your travel attire. My personal go-to outfit consists of leggings that will be removed/put on in the bathroom, a short sundress (in a season-appropriate color) that is the staple of your outfit, boots or closed toed flats that will be switched with sandals, a cardigan, a scarf, a winter coat for overtop of everything, and a blanket for the flight. Given all this your cold climate outfit will consist of: boots (with boot socks if you’re fabulous) or flats, leggings, dress, sweater, coat, and scarf (gloves too if needed). And your warm weather outfit will be sandals and a dress.
It’s a pretty simple process if you plan accordingly. The dress can be changes out for a skirt and top. Or you can change from pants to shorts while you remove or add the leggings. The most important thing to remember is to bring a large purse or carry-on bag to fit everything. You don’t want to be schlepping everything at once. I personally will pack EVERYTHING in my bag and then remove what I plan on wearing, just so that I am 100% sure it will all fit.
