Since I’ve started travelling more and on longer journeys, what to wear on flights has changed from a last minute decision to something a little more strategic. This is at least partially because any flight longer than an hour is a bit of an ordeal for me – I get bored, agitated and sniffly. So when I saw Vogue Australia had a gallery of what to wear on a flight I thought it might be useful.
It’s actually not terribly different to what I like to wear on a flight (that is, clothes that are as close to pyjamas a possible) – except it costs a few thousand dollars more. Here’s what I’m taking out of my collection of clothes:
- Cotton On ‘pashmina’ scarf – $5
- ScotteVest women’s trench (my review here) – $150
- Cotton On eye-mask – $5
- Joanne Mercer ballet flats – $75 on sale
- Lululemon bamboo nylon pullover – $75 on sale
- Mountain Designs merino leggings – $35 on sale
- Target wool hat – $6 on sale
- ASOS Cleo pull-on boots – $36 on sale (only on the way back, to save space for purchases – hopefully will have suitcase space for them on the way out of the country!)
- Dangerfield cat-eye sunglasses – $20
- Longchamp Le Pliage – $145
I wouldn’t call it budget by any means (it can certainly be done cheaper), but at close to one tenth of the cost of Vogue’s options I’d say it’s a little more reasonable! Of course I tend to be less concerned about how I look and more concerned about making it to the other side without having to spend the entire next day recovering.
What do you wear to the airport? Something stylish, or comfort all the way?
