What To Wear On The Plane To Paris

One of the questions I am asked frequently is what to wear on the plane to Paris. We all know once we touch down in the city of light, we are instantly surrounded by that Parisian way of dressing and the effortless way they all look put together.

However, when traveling on long flights, whether to Paris or anywhere in general, you want to be comfortable for the duration of your flight. There is a way to do this without having to wear head-to-toe athleisurewear.

When I travel to Paris, I wear any outfit I would normally wear in Paris. I do keep comfort in mind but for me, dressing always helps to set my mood. When I dress more put together, I feel more confident.

  1. We are travel fashion twins. Great website! I travel extensively worldwide and always try to dress for comfort and style. Quality clothes, easy to maintain and mix and match is a must. Scarves and few accessories add the final touches.

    1. Hi Nicole, Thank You! I couldn’t agree more about quality clothes, especially ones that are easy to maintain and versatile! And, I definitely love a great scarf!
      Have a great day and thanks for taking the time to read and comment,

    1. Hi There,
      Yes! I have been trying to get an appointment for global entry but it’s a little tricky where I live! Hopefully soon 🙂 Thankfully I have TSA precheck but still need the global entry.
      Have a great day!

  2. RE: the athletic shoes & challenging with tying/retying,
    First, these typically are the heaviest & bulkiest shoes ones brings for travel because they are also great for lots of walking, so wearing vs. packing them makes sense.
    After dealing with that untying/retying annoyance after many flights, several years ago I bought Lock Laces & have at least one pair of athletic shoes with those Laces. They work great!

  3. Why would you wear tennis shoes, like Converse, on a plane? They are hard to get off & on going through security &
    increase foot oder! Loafers or ballet flats would look nicer! Thanks for showing one outfit with flats! Safe travels!

    1. Hi Elizabeth, I always try and wear the heaviest shoe on the plane versus putting in my suitcase. This specific trip, my Converse were the heavy ones. It also depends on the time of year I am traveling. I wouldn’t wear flats during the winter. However, you have to wear what is best for you! Although, I didn’t think about the foot odor. lol, good thinking.
      Have a great day,
