There’s no one right way to dress while flying. However, there are a few general guidelines that you should follow while you’re in the air:
You can wear any clothing that is easy to move around in. If it gets wrinkled, prevent it from getting wrinkled.
If you’re wearing anything that has a lot of laces or buttons, put them all out of the way because they can be hard to reach if your seat belt isn’t fastened correctly. You should also make sure not to wear anything with many chains, such as chokers or rings. Tie your hair up tightly against your head and wear glasses all the time so that you won’t need to remove them during flight.
Don’t wear shoes with buckles; these create very unpleasant sounds and vibrations when they drop into the overhead bin or on the floor beside you during turbulence or in an emergency landing situation. You will also want to avoid items with metal buckles since these may come loose if there is too much pressure on them (elevators can be notorious for sticking). Remember that metal buckles scrape against metal and make noise when they drag across airplane seats, which may disturb other passengers who choose not to wear shoes in economy seats.
