Flying on a private jet is the epitome of luxury and a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many, so you might as well look good while doing it! Flying private is often associated with celebrities and the ultra-rich; putting your best foot forward is just a way to emulate their glamorous lifestyle which, let’s be honest, we’re all a little jealous of.
When picking out an outfit, there are a few things to consider. Whether you’ve booked a private jet for business or leisure, are going on a trip with the girls or are making a quick trip alone, these will all influence your choice of attire.
There is no official dress code when flying private, but most passengers are expected to dress smart. The logic goes that if you’re able to afford to fly private, then you can definitely afford to look good, and this is something you should definitely keep in mind when you are sharing the private jet rental with other passengers.
‘Smart’, of course, can mean different things for different people. For some, it can mean wearing comfortable pieces by luxury labels, even tracksuits. For others, it looks more like suits and business attire.
Business or leisure?
The reason you’re travelling will influence your choice of attire. If you’re going on a business trip, think sharp tailoring from reputable designers, although avoid tight-fitting clothes if you can; seeing as you are going to be sitting down for a few hours, you don’t want to feel inhibited by your clothing. You also don’t want the clothes to be wrinkled by the time you touch down.
This brings us to the next point which is to choose your material carefully. If you are concerned about wrinkles, you should avoid cotton and all materials that wrinkle easily. Fabrics made from synthetic materials like nylon and spandex show greater resilience to wrinkles and will look just as good after a few hours.
If you’re travelling for leisure, the careful choosing of material also applies, however you can have a little more fun with styles and silhouettes. Seeing as you don’t have to impress any business partners, you can play around with bright colors, and a whole variety of styles. Just try and avoid jumpsuits as these are particularly hard to navigate in an airplane toilet.
Going somewhere warm?If a tropical vacation is beckoning, now’s your time to bring out the linen. A wonderfully breathable material that keeps you cool in the hottest temperatures, opt for loose-fitting garments that allow the fresh air in. Flowy trousers, maxi dresses and shirts work perfectly for luxury tropical destinations and keep you looking bang on trend at the same time.
