What to wear when flying

Published by at 07:00

I took my first long haul flight when I was 3 years old. My daughter took her first overseas flight when she was just 3 months old. Needless to say I fly a lot, mostly on flights that last longer than 7 hours. The challenge has been how to fly fashionably but more importantly comfortably.  Here is what I like to wear when I fly. It's pretty much my uniform all year round. I might change out my shoes but my little feet get so cold on those long flights that socks and shoes are a must. 

What to wear when flying

1. I always fly with a wool blend sweater with pockets- stay away from synthetics. This one from All Saints is my current favorite.

2. I recently bought this men's wrangler shirt and I love it as a layering peice. It never fails that the middle hours of the flight I am freezing then about an hour before landing I am boiling.

3.  This cotton tank from All Saints is the perfect layer for when I get hot. 

4. Leggings = perfect flying pants. These cashmere blend from Express are great for flying in winter and for summer I just wear a cotton blend like these from American Apparel.

5. Accessories and security screenings do not go together, but I feel a little naked with out them so I keep things TSA friendly by wearing a scarf, also good for wrapping up in on the flight and a long pendant necklace.

6. I love wearing heels but when your lugging a child and suitcases through a busy airport they are not practical. But a lower heeled boot is a perfect compromise. These from Lucky have been surprisingly comfortable and easy to hussle in if I'm running late.

7.  Bring along a pair of flip flops or those fit in your purse flats. They can be super handy when you need to go to the bathroom but don't want to put your shoes back on.
