Now boarding! There’s a certain art to style in the sky – your outfit should be comfortable, casual and most importantly, easily transitional. Whether you’re flying home for the holidays or taking the dreaded red eye from the West Coast, it’s important to know in-flight fashion 101.
In order to optimize your off-the-plane activities, always dress with a post-flight schedule in mind. Pack your carry-on with practical pieces that can easily transition from day to night. Keep layering pieces within reach to give you outfit a quick upgrade when you land.
For in-flight comfort, a trendy swing jacket is a great option to have on hand. As the elevation climbs, the temperature in the plane tends to drop and this jacket will quickly become your best friend. Once you land, sling this Jaclyn Smith leopard print jacket over your shoulders for a chic “I-woke-up-like-this” vibe that will easily allow you to run to dinner looking effortless. What six-hour, double-layover flight?
While comfort is key at 30,00 feet, your style should never be compromised. Opt for an on-trend skinny pant that like this Bongo option, which will allow you to move (and snooze on the plane) with ease while looking fab. It’s basic enough to transition from comfy, casual for the plane to a more dressed-up downtown vibe (just add the swing jacket!) for touchdown activities.
As for footwear, board the plane in flats (we highly suggest these cute Bongo Casual Flat Cabe) and have a pair of back-up stilettos stashed away in an oversized handbag or carry-on. Oh, and be sure to keep some beauty essentials – mascara, moisturizer and moist towelettes – in your handbag for a quick refresh right before you land. Once you arrive at your desire destination, you want to ensure that you get off looker just as glamorous as you did when you got on!
