There was a time in my life where I took the «traveling comfortably» motto very seriously. My outfits consisted in black sweat pants, Nikes and a black hoodie. I didn’t look bad, I just looked like a I was going to hit the treadmill. So with time I learned I could be nicely dressed and still be comfortable. I try to avoid anything too tight because I know how uncomfortable plane seats are. So I always stick with jeans, white shirt, nice cardigan and ballet flats. If my flight is short I like to wear heels and on longer flights I wear ballet flats, it all depends on your fashion personality and preferences.
Please try to avoid flip-flops. It doesn’t matter if you are going straight to the beach once you land, flip-flops are a no-no unless you are at the pool or at the beach. (Or if you are getting a pedicure and going straight home.)
I always bring a shawl in my carry-on because I am always cold. If my flight is really long I do bring black sweatpants and a black hoodie to change before going to sleep and immediately change to my normal clothes before landing.
Here are some pictures I found that are this week’s «Airport fashion inspiration»:
