What do you wear to travel? Airlines have exorcised the glamor right out of plane travel.
The onus is on each and everyone of us is to be prepared for any potential temperature, seating arrangement or delay.
Full Disclosure I am sitting on the tarmac delayed while I write this…
Slides are the first absolute must every air traveler should own.
Easy on and off when going through security and stylishly cute enough to keep you happy even when your feet are swelling. Don’t try to deny it, it happens to all of us!
Next up is a good blazer. Flying from one climate to another can be challenging, and there is not always a need to bring a big bulky jacket. A blazer can be layered, hoodies are HOT right now, so why not invest in a Vestments piece to go with the blazer?
Once you land somewhere warm, the blazer goes perfectly with a tank or t-shirt.
Next on the list, a carry on suitcase. Seriously. Yes, just one bag.
Never again will your eyes well up with tears as the luggage belt circles around & around, empty without your bag. Don’t check it, bring it on the plane with you. If the editors of British Vogue can do it during fashion weeks, then so too can we! Rimowa offers colorful, hard case carrying suitcases that allow a lot inside.
Finally, an exaggerated sized cashmere scarf. Planes get cold and passengers get sleepy. Why not pack something like Alexander McQueen’s scarf, that will make you feel like a princess despite the stranger snoring loudly right beside you? It will also double nicely as a wrap in the evening wherever you are traveling to.
Now if you will excuse me, I have to run to my connecting gate!
