My dear, elegant ladies, welcome back to my channel.
I have a highly requestedvideo for you today.
What to wear when you're traveling, and what to wear in an airport.
If you are new to mychannel, my name is Anna, and I run an online finishing school called School of Affluence.

Now, if you want to havethis transformation, and you want to know how toachieve a luxurious lifestyle, visit www.
Okay, ladies, let's start with a small introduction where I am going to quickly say things that Iwould never wear to an airport.
The first and foremost numberone thing I would never wear to an airport, and that is my gym clothes.
No yoga pants, no sporty stuff, nothing that I usuallywould wear in a gym.
With my sense of logic, these type of garments do not belong in anaircraft or an airport.
For instance, there are certain clothes that are meant for certain activities.
When I go horseback riding, I wear certain clothes.
When I go and play tennis or I play golf, I wear different types of clothing, so why are then activewear, why are gym clothes all of a sudden theappropriate wear to wear outside of the gym? It does not make any sense to me.
Now, other things that Iwould personally not wear when I go traveling is, forinstance, very tight clothing like tight jeans, anythingthat's uncomfortable to sit down in.
I would also not wear heels, platforms.
I would not wear dressesor skirts or even shorts, anything that can make you feel cold.
And I would also think a little bit about what not to wear onmy feet when I'm traveling.
UGGs, for instance, unless you are arriving to a snowy country, a cold country, maybe arriving to themountains, then okay, maybe that's okay, butif you're just traveling with UGGs because they'recomfortable, I don't know.
They just look a little bit out of place.
Same goes with flip-flops.
Flip-flops, I see a lot inthe airplanes and airports.
Flip-flops for me belongaround the pool, nowhere else, and especially not in an aircraft.
But let's go back to air port outfits.
What would I personally wear? What is appropriate to wear? First of all, we needto have one thing clear.
We do not want tounderdress for the airport, and we do not want tooverdress for the airport.
I think overdressing, appearing in heels and dresses and very delicate clothingis definitely not appropriate because in airports, in airplanes, it's easy to spill, get dirty.
For that reason, you reallyshould just have something that is somewhere in the middle.
Why you shouldn't go toocasual is because it's a matter of respect for yourself, and it's also a matter of respect for other people.
Although airports and airplanesare not formal settings, but you are surrounded by a lot of people, so it's important totake that into account.
I wonder, don't youwant to look your best, especially when you areseeing all these people and you're sitting nextto all these people? So, ladies, I'm going totell you what I personally would like to wear in an airport.
I will also tell you whatbag I think is best to wear and what shoes to wear.
I always travel with trousers and a top.
A top can be long sleeve, short sleeve.
A few times, I've traveled with a dress.
For me personally, it wasnot the most comfortable piece of garment to wear.
Trousers, let's start with that because trousers are really important.
My favorite option, which I actually do wear quite often myself to long-haul flights, I personally love palazzotrousers and any wide trousers.
They are comfortable, and especially if you get in a more knitted material, maybe some satin variation.
There can be some high-qualitypolyester that is breathable, and it's not like thereally cheap polyester that we don't like.
But I guess the most importantis that the trousers, they sit nicely aroundyour stomach and hip area because that's kind ofwhere it becomes bothersome when you're sitting down, and maybe the groin as well.
So you really haveto make sure everything is, you know, relaxed, not too tight, you have some breathing space, and so on.
And usually, these type of trousers, they'll look more flowy, they'll look more elegant, they can be a little bit more casual chic, as I like to call it.
If you are travelingshort haul, for instance, then you can wear trousers that are more like capri trousers, maybesome comfortable slacks, maybe some culottes.
If you want to wearjeans, then perhaps a pair of stretch jeans.
I would really focus on something that, you know, is comfortable.
I feel trousers just makes youlook a little bit more neat, a little bit more formal, so like that, you don't look very dressed down, and you can just mix and match.
Okay, let's talk about what we're going to wear with our trousers.
For instance, a top like this is something I would definitely wear in an airplane.
I like to wear somethingthat is comfortable, something that is soft, something that is usually a long sleeve, or if Iam wearing short sleeve, short sleeve is not a t-shirt, by the way.
T-shirts is like this.
Short sleeve is like this.
Now, short sleeve with acardigan, for instance, so that you can layerbecause in an aircraft, it really does oftentimes gets cold.
What I personally wear in anairplane is something simple.
I don't want to go all fancy.
I don't want to go fashionable.
Air travel is already a stressfulmoment, at least for me, and I just want to keep things as simple, as easygoing as possible, so I really think about these things, thatI have to find clothing for airports that aresomewhere in the middle, not too fancy but not too shabby to relax.
We want to have that verycasual but smart, casual middle.
Now, another thing, I don'tknow if you have the same issue, but I always get verybloated after air travel.
I've actually read aboutthis, that it's very common.
Whenever I travel, I always make sure to, not to wear any tops that are too tight.
When I start feeling a little bit bloated, and then all of this shows.
It doesn't make me feel good about myself, and it doesn't give me a good look.
Another thing, I also like, especially if I'm traveling long haul.
I don't know how youfeel about this, ladies.
I guess it can be abit different depending on your bust size, but me, as I have a smaller bust, I personally don't liketo wear a bra with straps when I'm traveling long haulbecause in a long haul flight, I want to have, like my shoulders relaxed, so I always wear astrapless bra underneath whatever top it is that I'm wearing.
So, I always make sure thatthe top that I'm wearing, it can cater for such bra because for me, it's just important to havethis kind of flexibility here so I don't feel like I'm too strapped in everything that I'm wearing, like, I want to feel somehow liberated.
I think the trickiest partis when you're traveling from a cold country to ahot country or vice versa because you're really goingfrom two types of climates, and it can be sometimestricky to dress for it.
Let's say I'm travelingfrom a cold country, I'm arriving in a warm country, definitely I would wear the clothes that I'm going to feel mostcomfortable on, upon arrival.
I wouldn't do the same, though, if I'm traveling from a hot country to a cold country.
Then I would actually puton my clothes that cater for colder climates laterthroughout the flight but not initially becauseyou don't wanna go through an airport in, I don'tknow, in some exotic country and really sweating in your jacket.
But really, layering solves everything.
So, the best way oflayering for me personally is to have, like, spaghetti straps.
Maybe you have a cami top, and then you have a cardigan, not too thick, thin, and then maybe you have an additional layer, maybe another sweater for the really cold part of the flight, or maybe you have a light jacket.
So, when it comes to outerwear, I mean, if you are traveling within hot countries, then this won't be applicable to you, but if you are travelingwithin cold countries or you're arriving or departingfrom a cold country then, of course, you might bewearing a jacket or a coat.
I would personally not wearthe most fancy version of coat, for instance, becausereally, in the airplane, anything can happen.
For that reason, you haveto have a jacket or a coat.
You're just not too concerned about if something would happen to it, but you still don't wantto wear the ugliest thing that you own because that's the only thing you don't care about.
You have to find someform of balance there.
So, what about shoes, footwear? Flats is the only way togo, and you can, of course, have different variations to flats.
So, I do recommend wearingsneakers, but stylish sneakers.
You don't want to wear a runner's shoes.
We don't want to wear our old Nikes.
We want to wear our good-looking, nice pair of sneakers.
Maybe you have a nicepair of leather sneakers.
I love my Louis Vuitton leather sneakers.
They are my favorite sneakers.
You can also wear ballerinashoes if they're comfortable.
An alternative, though, would be to wear loafers, maybe a nice pair of Gucciloafers, perfect for travel, perfect for walking, somethingthat is kind of comfortable but still, you know, formalenough not to be too casual.
I also recommend that youwear shoes that are easy to take off and easy to put on.
I do recommend that you wearsomething that is comfortable because travelingrequires a lot of walking, especially between terminals.
And also, don't forget shoesthat are not too fragile.
You just never know.
Now, if you want to wear boots.
Maybe you are in a cold country, then of course, wear them.
Just make sure that they'reeasy to take on and take off.
Now, lastly, ladies, the bag.
Now, what bag are we going to wear, and do we have to wear designer bag when we travel with airplanes? It's up to you.
You can if you want.
If you want to always dress to impress, then you definitely could wear something that is a little bit morefancy, but if you are somebody that don't bother and don'tcare, then you don't have to.
It's just your personal choice.
So, depending what your needs are, you will have a bag accordingly.
For instance, some people, they don't really havea lot of hand luggage.
They put everything intheir check-in luggage.
Then, maybe you don'tneed to have a big bag.
In that case, I wouldrecommend you to wear maybe a crossover bag or maybea bag with shoulder straps because you want to have your hands free.
Majority of us, however, and that is me included, we like to have thingswith us inside the plane.
That means, maybe you needspace for your laptop, your books, your water bottle, your iPad, your mobiles.
Whatever it is, you need tohave a little bit more space for all of those thingsthat you just cannot put in your check-in luggage.
So, a bigger bag is required, and for that reason, we need a tote bag.
You don't have to have a tote tote, but you can have somethingthat is a bit bigger, with easy access becausewe do need some form of easy access since we have to take in and out our passports and boarding passes.
You want to have some space to work with, but the bag cannot be too big.
You want to be able to fit itin the seat in front of you.
But at the same time, if you are traveling with a carry-on aswell, so, a rolling bag, you want to be able to put your handbagcomfortably on the rolling bag.
You won't need to have tocarry your bag on your shoulder or however it is that you have to carry.
You can just put them twotogether, and problem solved.
The last thing that I reallywant you to think about.
My dear online friend, @ericasgirlyworld, she mentioned this in a video when she was talkingabout her Hermes Birkin bag, saying that it was too heavyfor her to take with her in airplanes, and that's something that is very importantto really think about, the fact that your travelingbag, the handbag that you have as a carry-on and so on, that it's not too heavywithout items inside.
Because it's just going to be a burden when you're traveling around, having a very heavy bag, plus stuffing it with all kinds of things, and you end up carrying, like, 10 kilos.
