I Flew From L.A. to NYC in This Set, and Now I'll Never Travel in Anything Else

I'm a creature of habit, especially when it comes to clothes. Once I find something that works, I'll be loyal to it forever, telling everyone I know (and even some people I don't know) about it until they give in and eventually buy it. It's this somewhat toxic trait that brings me to today's newfound obsession, which arrives in the form of a cozy yet elevated two-piece lounge set that recently turned my five-hour red-eye from L.A. to NYC into a truly luxurious experience. 

To preface, I'm not usually someone who wears loungewear on a plane. Ever since I saw my biggest childhood crush—Cam Gigandet, aka Volchok on The O.C.—on this same red-eye flight back in high school, I've been under the impression that you should always somewhat dress up for a flight, and I usually opt for relaxed jeans and a button-down shirt or T-shirt rather than a sweatsuit. But when Who What Wear Collection launched the Millie Deep-V Sweater and Grace Pull-On Pants, I figured why not? The two items didn't look like the makings of your typical sweatsuit, nor did they feel like one. The material is super soft but also very luxe. They seemed like the perfect in-between travel outfit, so I pressed purchase.

I made the mistake of not wearing the set on my flight to L.A., instead choosing to toss on one of my usual, far less comfortable ensembles. On the way back, however, I had learned my lesson. The pants, despite feeling like pajama pants, look more like trousers that happen to have an elastic waistband. The V of the sweater is extremely flattering as well, much more so than a crew-neck would be. I added a bodysuit that would've otherwise taken up space in my carry-on (which was already over capacity thanks to a few too many shopping trips). But the addition didn't look unintentional—instead, it just elevated the set even further. 

Suffice to say, by the time I touched down in NYC, I had sworn off wearing anything other than this set for long flights. Jeans would, from now on, forever be packed away in my suitcase, rather than worn for the flight. This set, however, will have a very different fate.
