Airport Attire | Outfitted for a long flight


Hello, in all likelihood, from 30,000 feet!


I’m off to the West Coast today, so I thought a post on my standard airplane attire would be suitable to share.

For travel, I typically build my outfit around a monochromatic palette. It lends my look a cool jetsetter vibe and ensures I appear pulled together — even if I’m actually, say, battling a two-day champagne-induced hangover. (So much for that low-key weekend I preached.) I may not feel first-class, but maybe if I look the part they’ll give me an upgrade.

Kidding, that’s SO not my luck… Oh, and totally hypothetical situation.



For longer flights (New York to SF is around six hours), I layer thin tops that are a bit on the longer side. I always have a scarf with me, too — even a silk one for summer travel. It keeps me cozy in the chilly terminal but can easily be stripped down once I’m stranded on the jetway in a middle seat at the mercy of “mechanical problems.” Delays for days is the name of the game for this girl all-to-often.

This lambswool number is chic, luxurious and practical. Beneficial to society, too: As I’ve mentioned to my travel bud Hitha, I am not a pretty public sleeper by any means. Total mouth breather.

To finish the look, I pull on a pair of no-fuss boots. Ones that  can have me ready for any type of weather upon arrival. What’ll it be this week, SF?
