I like to dress comfortably according to the place that I'm traveling to. Even though I'm a tourist, I don't want to look like one.

I'm with Echoos on this. If I have to be stuck on a plane and hoofing it between gates at an airport, or cramped on a Bus or Train . . I want to be comfortable.

I won't go to the extreme that some of mankind's refuse might embrace which seem to be the "Dress Code" of Wal-Mart  . . . Meaning; I refuse to wear sweat pants (especially covered in cheese puff stains), Sleep wear of ANY kind, or slippers . . . . Regardless of how comfortable I may think they are.

Usually a nice pair of jeans (not too tight), or shorts (if I am traveling to a much warmer climate), and the top is comprised of Layers from light comfortable t-shirt on up to sip up hoody. Most impoartantly, comfortable shoes to walk, run or sleep in.

I only have traveled via a car. I am sorry but long distance car rides HAVE to be comfy for me. Anything too tight eventually bugs my gallbladder. 😒😓😯

Back in the day when people dressed up to travel it was considered a  luxury, and by today's standards was luxurious. There were only 4 seats across on a plane, where now there are six. You also had much more leg room. You were also served an actual meal. Today we are packed in like sardines and are lucky to get a soda and pretzels. To make up for the lack of space, we dress more comfortably.

Also clothes that are often defined as a bit dressier need ironing. I don't iron at home if I can help it, and I certainly don't want to do it when travelling. So people tend too pack clothes that don't wrinkle easily.

Like the others, I would go for comfort rather than style. I do remember "back in the day" when everyone would dress up like they were going to church when they were traveling. Flying somewhere seemed more of a celebration because the costs were high and you wanted your appearance to reflect that. If I do fly somewhere, I don't dress up, as in wearing a dress, hosiery, nice shoes but will find something decent to wear that will be comfortable as well.
