When Traveling Do You Dress For Where You Are Or Where You Are Going?
We have all seen it, the guy standing in the middle of the airport wearing a Hawaiian shirt, cargo shorts and flip flops. This in itself isn’t abnormal, until you peek over at the windows which reveals a savage blizzard blaring outside. This guy is someone who dresses for where they are going when they travel. Another woman on that same Hawaii flight is dripping sweat in the back of the Uber because she layered up on the way to the airport. She can’t wait to check in and strip off the layers of clothes at the resort. This woman dresses according to where she is when she travels.
I Have A Hybrid Method
I have a mixture of the two, as I am sure many of us do, but I do tend to lean towards dressing for where I am going. On my flight to Vegas a few months ago I wore a sweater into the airport and took it off as soon as I was inside and packed it away. I knew Vegas was in the high 70’s, and I usually run a little warm on planes, so I decided to take off what I could while I could.
When I travel during the frigidly cold winter I will often forgo wearing a coat to the airport if going somewhere warmer. Coats can take up a lot of space so I will suck it up during the walk from the parking lot to the terminal to save on packing. That is where my Loungaroo comes in mighty handy.
I don’t go full blown shorts in the middle of winter, or tightly bundled up when leaving a warm weather location and heading home. I think leaving warm and heading to cold is easier to deal with since you can layer up when you land from your luggage.
I thought this would be a fun topic to discuss in the comments so it was more for that than anything else. Do you dress for where you are going or for where you are leaving? Or do you do a hybrid set up? And if so which way do you lean?
