Now that we are all officially grown-ups, it is almost required for us to travel in style. Here is a standby airplane outfit that will ensure you look pulled together, feel first class, and maybe even get you an upgrade.
The perfect travel pant is something you probably already own: a mid-rise all-black skinny jean with some much needed stretch. You will want a pair that will look clean and flattering, but can withstand awkward seated positions and potential layover napping.
Layer on thin white or gray tanks and tees that are fitted and on the longer side. These pieces will give you a little extra warmth in cold terminals and, if stuck on a hot tarmac, are also wearable on their own.
Next, you'll want to throw on a soft-as-a-blanket sweater that looks cool and has a relaxed cut. A crew or v-neck softie should be the next layer that feels chic and luxurious and is super cozy. While a taupe, black, or camel option is a no-brainer, we suggest you try a printed version to add a touch of personality. A color-blocked, plaid, or conversational print can be still jetsetter cool.
Pack your supersized coat in your luggage and wear your smaller, but still warm cape jacket for travel. A flannel or wool version in black or navy gives you the ease of having your arms free, but the with some additional warmth and big, accessible pockets. It can also double as an on-the-spot-pillow.
When it comes to shoes, don't bother with belts, buckles or ties. Instead, wear a boot that can be easily pulled on and off to help get you through security and naptime in a snap. A cropped flat boot or cowboy number gives you an effortless vibe and can withstand unforeseen weather upon arrival.
