What to wear for your most comfy flight ever
By Brittany Anas
The TSA security line isn’t exactly the catwalk. But strutting through the line — without having to strip off accessories at the checkpoint and hop around on one leg trying to pull off a boot, all while looking stylish — is awe-worthy, nonetheless.
We’ve heard stories about decades’ past when people dressed to the nines for flights. Nowadays, sweatsuits and — yes, even pajama pants — are seeming to be more of the norm in the airport. Somewhere in between those two extremes is a good travel look.
Here’s a few tips for how you can look well put together, fly through the security lines and be extra comfortable in that middle seat you always seem to get stuck in. How’s that for a travel trifecta?
- Wear a dress. Not to be fancy. But to be comfortable. A cozy knit dress this winter can be more comfortable than jeans. We’ve scouted out a few long-sleeved options at Lands End that are just right for trips during the holiday season.
– The Embellished French Terry Dress, $89, draws inspiration from this season’s embellished sweatshirt trend. The soft terry material will make traveling comfortable, but the embellished, jeweled neckline sets off an elegant contrast.
– Think of the Long Sleeved Knit Sparkled Dress, $69 to be as comfy as sweatshirt, just in a more flattering dress form. A very subtle shimmer in the material adds a festive touch for those flights scheduled near the Christmas season.
– The relaxed shirtdresses of summer gets winterized with corduroy on this Slouchy Cord Shirt Dress, $69.
- Ditch the heels. They’ll just slow you down when you’re trying to catch a connection. Flats are where it’s at for travel days. Between the rising popularity of smoking slippers and gorgeous patterns, flat shoes are trending this season, too. The Venetian flat shoes at Land’s End are inspired by tuxedos — and they recently garnered some attention in People Style Watch magazine. We’re crushing on the bright royal blue flat with black polka dots and the “Indonesian Teal” rendition.
- Cozy up. Don’t go on a scavenger hunt looking for a blanket on the airplane. Most airlines don’t stock the blankets for domestic flights, anymore — which is a bummer when the person next to you cranks up the air conditioning. No problem, because this Plaid Fringe Ruana is a stylish, warm and cozy. With more coverage than a scarf, just close it up with a brooch.
