Holidays have definitely been interrupted the past few years. But with the world back to normal (or as normal as it can be) we’re gearing up for another holiday season. Whether you’re taking a quick trip to a nearby destination, or spending half the day on a plane to visit a far-flung paradise, it’s important to have a good travel outfit.
The art of crafting an outfit for a long flight is exactly that—an art. Obviously, comfort is priority number one given that you could very well be sitting for 10, maybe even 20 hours, depending on where you’re heading. There’s also utility to keep in mind. We love to travel with a crossbody bag or XL tote for this exact reason—not to mention packing space and, of course, style. Sure, you could wear pyjamas (preferably the fancy, feathered kind) to the airport, but with so many designers transitioning to a more comfort-driven aesthetic during the pandemic, there are now plenty of fashion-approved alternatives that look elevated and are as soft and comfortable as your go-to sleepwear.
To ensure that your in-flight experience is on par with your destination, we found eight outfits that are sure to have you looking and feeling fresh, despite the 10-plus-hour flight time, and we called on two frequent flyers for their tried-and-true tips as well. Keep scrolling to find out more.
