Think back to your last travel outfit. Chances are it was born out of necessity rather than style — leggings, a comfy jumper, a scarf for the inevitable mid-flight freeze and the boots that were too heavy for your suitcase. Don’t even get us started on the sloppy outfits we wear on our return…
It wasn’t always like this. From the ’50s when commercial travel was new and exciting right up until, presumably tracksuits became commonplace (I’m looking at you, Juicy Couture), passengers would dress up in their finest outfits to travel. Just ask Chris Bath.
The former Seven Network news presenter shared a rediscovered photo of her first family holiday in the ’70s — and the outfits do not disappoint.
1977. Maureen & Don saved for 4 years for our first ever plane trip & only international family foray until Italy 2006 (but that’s another story). This was a Jetset Tour to Disneyland. Maureen made all our holiday outfits. Don was exempt. Can you imagine my delight when I found this photo yesterday? #family #holidays #jetsetter #flashback #latergram #sydneyairport #harryhighpants
After saving for years to take the family on holiday, Bath’s parents Maureen and Don treated her and her sister to a Jetset tour to Disneyland. Such a special occasion required special outfits — matching, of course.
