Do you remember the last time you traveled through an airport going through security, dealing with long lines, or waiting and roaming during layovers? Whether it was Boston's Logan International, Portland International Jetport, or Manchester Boston Regional, sometimes it's smooth, and other times chaotic.

Whether you end up with an unexpected gate change, lost luggage, or passengers and travelers who aren't fun to be around, airports are a thing, so anything we can do to limit anxiety is a plus.

Have you ever thought about wearing red?

Having casual, comfy travel clothes and business attire (including red) in your wardrobe is key, according to Airplane Tips. 

Studies have always shown red as a power color, which people perceive as more attractive or confident. That often translates to preferential treatment, due to something dubbed the Red Dress Effect, which regards the attractiveness men see when women wear red, according to the NY Post. However, it works for any red clothing on anyone.

In this case, when traveling through airports and on airplanes, it's a stimulating color that can give you an edge when going through security lines or catching the attention of flight attendants (albeit subliminally). You can maybe even extra perks like extra food or upgrades.

Red warrants attention. Naturally, humans respond to it, even by inadvertently glancing over when we see the color.

Airline staff, according to Airplane Tips, are more likely to treat passengers dressed in red with extra care and attention, subconsciously perceiving passengers in red as more important or of higher status.

From a splash of red to an entire outfit, try wearing red and see what science-based positive things may happen if you're not a jerk while traveling.
