Clothing to travel in on the plane to Mexico

I've been thinking about what to wear on the plane for my honeymoon to Mexico. I was considering a cotton maxi dress, flat sandals, cardigan and light jacket along with a pashmina-type scarf as it gets pretty chilly during the flight. All of this I'd probably wear at different points during the holiday.

Do you think this is ok? I wanted to make a bit more of an effort as it's our honeymoon!

sounds fine. just be aware, security seem very interested in ladies wearing long skirts and dresses - nothing too alarming but you are more likely to be given a second 'scan' - with the hand-held metal detector.

Congrats on your marriage--or upcoming marriage.

Pam--I ONLY wear long skirts and I have NEVER had security pay any attention to me. I would also say that 99% of my female friends dress the same and none of us have ever had problems.

Mrs. Pearson---Bottom line--no one cares what you wear on the plane. It is up to you to feel comfortable. Years ago people dressed to fly, today it is like a bus with wings. I am happy if the people near me have on CLEAN, non-smelly clothes. So, dress in any fashion that make you happy.

Oh please. Mexico is lovely, and virtually all of it is very safe.

Mrs P, congratulations on your upcoming neptuals.

As you are flying long haul from the UK, suggest comfort over style. Flat sandals, pashmina and a cotton maxi dress sound ideal. But, also suggest some lip balm and mosturiser while in flight. A neck pillow won't go amiss either.

Now,although they may not look elegant.. socks do keep the tootsies clean and toasty...in flight ones are fine for function, but a pair of cashmere ones are soft and warm, and don't leave tell tale ankle marks....Just remember to take them off when you land!

I would leave the jacket at home.

The main tourists resorts are hundreds of miles from the US / Mexican border area where there are issues with drug wars. Let's get things into perspective folks!
