7 Things Never to Wear to the Airport
Here's what to leave at home to make life easier, get to where you're going faster—and avoid making enemies with the TSA.
Lots of Jewelry
While a little sparkle quickly jazzes up any outfit, it isn't always the easiest thing to take off (think too-tight rings and tiny clasps). If you still want to bring jewelry to wear once you arrive at your destination, keep it in a separate bag inside your carry-on so that it's easily accessible for security. If you have particularly valuable items, request a private screening, says Glassman, to avoid becoming a target for pickpockets. And while studded pieces are certainly stylish, the TSA doesn't necessarily embrace this edgy fashion trend. Save the spikes for occasions that don't involve a metal detector.
