What not to wear?

Short skirts with metallic jewellery

Short skirts with metallic jewellery – Short skirts, in general, can be a little uncomfortable to sit around at the airport. It is always safe to go with jeggings or leggings as they are the comfortable choice, and if you have connecting long flights, you might not be extremely comfortable in short skirts. Besides this, metallic jewellery can be a big issue at airports as they will ask you to remove all the pieces for security check. Who wants to go through so much trouble?

Bobby pins

Bobby pins – Yes, this small accessory in your attire can cause trouble for you at the airport. Sometimes too many bobby pins can set off the metal detector, and you could be taken for a check by the security. It is better to stick to just one or two bobby pins or go for a simple hair tie. Other than this, avoid wearing too many safety pins in your outfit too. This can trigger the metal detectors, and you might have to go through a tedious time at the airport.

Cargo pants or shorts

– Anything with too many pockets can give the security a tough time to check. All the pockets become a hassle to check and sometimes the zips on the pockets can set off the alarm which will cause a disaster at the airport for you. Sometimes, you can spend hours waiting and possibly missing your flight because of a small glitch. So, don’t make this error and skip on pants with more than two pockets.
