A friend indeed: Joey explains layering.

#Travel140 #TravelTip: Dress smartly – Wear layers when traveling.

You’ve heard it often enough: Dress in layers. Turns out, that’s the perfect way to dress for travel, as well. With constantly changing weather, fluctuating temperatures, and unpredictable heating/cooling in every plane and building, layering lets you adjust to stay toasty but not roasty.

Surprisingly, layering is a good strategy for warm weather travel as well. Planes can go from sweltering on the tarmac to freezing at altitude – and back again. Flight attendants are often amazed that people who board in shorts and tank-tops are surprised to be cold during the flight. You can play it smart by dressing smart…with layers.

  1. I’ve learned the hard way that dressing in layers is essential. You are so right. Those blankets the flight attendants provide on the airplane are just not enough to keep off a chill on a transatlantic flight. Besides, long sleeves can sometimes feel a bit restrictive when you’re stuck in a seat for a while.

    • Not only that, but I always wonder a bit about airline stuff… More than once, I’ve been SO happy to have that extra layer I can shed – or put back on! – and be as comfy as you can be in a airplane seat.

  2. I couldn’t agree with you more! I’m naturally cold, so I always dress in layers and have learned the hard way about not wearing enough layers on a plane. Normally I fly into Las Vegas, but I’ve learned that I should always wear long pants for the airplane! I love the photo you chose to illustrate the point. 🙂

    • I LOVE that picture! Could he BE more Chandler??? 😉 Thanks for your comment, Brooke. Someplace like Las Vegas can be so tricky: So cold on the plane, so HOT on the ground! I guess that’s true in a lot of places, so yeah – layers for the win! 🙂 Have a great New Year!
