I'll start with the outfit I put together for an upcoming flight this week. I'm doing a really easy combination of black skinny pants from Zara + gray slub knit top from Alexander Wang, lace bralette (ridiculously comfortable), metallic cap toe slip-ons, minimalist Y-bar necklace, my everyday cognac bag (from Target and so cute!), and tortoise shell sunglasses. After I get off the plane, I'll change into a pair of black platform sling backs. This outfit, to me, is top level comfort.
You really cannot go wrong when combing black, white, and camel. Pair your most comfortable white tee with black pants, slip-ons and a camel coat or long waistcoat. Add texture with a leather bag, tortoise sunglasses, and a fun tassel for your luggage. I love this furry one from Michael Kors but I have a black leather fringe tassel for my luggage.
For a simpler look, wear a long-sleeve black tee with boyfriend jeans like a modern Jackie. I like the idea of playing it up with a fun shoe, whether it be sequined cloth like these from LAKP or maybe a print. Top it off with classic travel accessories like Calvin Klein aviators and a Longchamp Le Pliage tote.
I know that flights are usually cold, but I was on one recently that was so miserably freezing that I don't believe I will ever fly again without a warm cardigan like this one. Pair a textured cardigan with a lightweight cashmere sweater and black trousers. Stick with the color scheme for your accessories but throw in a little something extra, like this pair of burgundy flats.
For long haul flights, we all know that it's important to strike the right balance between style and extreme comfort. Typically, that means a sweatshirt and leggings. Go for it, but dress it up a bit with an embellished or graphic sweatshirt from brands like Markus Lupfer and Zoe Karssen. Choose a nice pair of leggings and a comfortable layering tank. This would be a great outfit for a statement shoe, like these D'Orsay flats from Guilhermina at Anthropologie. Stick on an under-eye sheet mask and you're good to go.
Stay tuned for what's in my carry-on bag later this week!
