A big purse will come in handy for materials that you will need easy access to. It can even double up a carry-on bag. It can also act as an accessory to your simple outfit.


Don’t wear a belt

You don’t want to the hassle of unbuckling it and putting it through the scanner with a whole line behind you. Opt for well-fitting pants and no baggy sweats or pajamas, please!

Do not over accessorize

A little sparkly of jewelry has the ability to transform a simple outfit into something classy. You might have to save them for occasions that don’t involve security metal detectors. However, if you need them with your particular outfit, save them in your carry on and wear them once you land.

Do not wear ‘fancy shoes’

Comfortable slip ons will do just fine. Avoid gladiator sandals and boots with zippers and laces. You are aiming for comfortability so avoid wearing your heels because who knows if you might have to run to.

Do not wear underwire bras

These wires can trigger sensitive metal detectors leading to a pat down. To avoid all these go for a sports bra or a padded bra.

Do not wear a lot of makeup
