12 Outfits to Wear on Your Next Long Flight, According to Frequent Flyers

outfits-for-long-flights-295834-1634834654057-image

The art of crafting an outfit for a long flight is exactly that—an art. Obviously, comfort is priority number one since you could be sitting for 10, maybe even 20 hours, depending on where you're headed. There's also utility to keep in mind. We love to travel with a  crossbody bag or  fanny pack for this exact reason—not to mention packing space and style. Sure, you could wear pajamas (preferably the fancy, feathered kind) to the airport, but with so many designers transitioning to a more comfort-driven aesthetic since the pandemic, there are plenty of fashion-approved alternatives that look elevated and are soft and flexible like your go-to sleepwear.

To ensure that your in-flight experience is on par with your destination, we found 12 outfits sure to have you looking and feeling fresh, despite the 10-plus-hour flight time, and we called on two frequent flyers for their tried-and-true tips. 

outfits-for-long-flights-295834-1634762858941-image

You'll Need: Ribbed Top + Matching Ribbed Pants + Fanny Pack

According to Nana Agyemang , the CEO of  EveryStylishGirl and a social media editor who travels long-distance once a month, a comfortable set is a must for in-flight comfort. " Comfort is my top priority [when I fly], so I try to pick clothes that don't restrict me and give me freedom and space to move," Agyemang says. 

Even more crucial, though, is a fanny pack, which Agyemang considers to be the ultimate travel companion: "They fit so much in them, and since mine is literally attached to my hip, it's easily accessible."

Rib-Knit Cardigan

You'll Need: Oversize Sweatshirt + Baggy Sweatpants + Sport Sandals

"I try to wear anything without what I call 'pokies,' which are things that can poke you when you're sitting for long periods of time: buttons, snaps, too-tight waistbands, hooks, itchy tags, etc.," says Alyssa Cosca relli , an editor and stylist who traveled multiple times per month pre-pandemic. 

Free-Est + Mariner Sweater Set

You'll Need:  Wool Coat + Sweatshirt + Wide-Leg Sweatpants

Let your top layer act as both your style enhancer and an extra carry-on, Coscarelli suggests. According to her, a pocket-rich coat lets you sneak in stuff that doesn't fit in your bag, and it doubles as an extra pillow. Win-win. 

Nike + Sportswear Phoenix Sweatshirt

You'll Need: Plissé Top + Plissé Pants + Retro Sneakers

Agyemang is adamant about not wearing jeans or heels on long flights. "They're so restrictive and painful, in my opinion," she says. Try something like this plissé set on  Amaka Hamelijnck  paired with retro New Balance sneakers—Agyemang's go-to brand—instead.

Plisse Oversized Button Up Shirt

You'll Need: Crew-Neck Sweatshirt + Matching Joggers + Oversize Blazer

"Since I prioritize comfort over style with the outfit, I like to accessorize with a cute, trendier bag if I can," Coscarelli says. This red Coperni bag  Megan Adelaide's  wearing is a perfect example of this travel style hack playing out IRL.

Marla Zip Sweatshirt

You'll Need: Quilted Jacket + Leggings + Rain Boots

One big tip: Avoid clothing that bares too much skin. " I always feel better being covered up on planes," Coscarelli says. An easy outfit recipe for doing so is a quilted jacket that can double as a pillow, cozy leggings that aren't too constricting, and chunky rain boots that would otherwise take up a lot of space in your luggage. 

Quilted Padded Ripstop Jacket

You'll Need: Hooded Sweatshirt + Yoga Pants + Big Bag + Sporty Sunglasses

Crewneck sweatshirts are great and all, but according to Coscarelli, the real in-flight must-have is a sweatshirt with a hood: "I always need a hood—it doubles as an eye mask when you need to sleep on a long flight. Plus, it's just extra cozy." 

Nike + Sportswear Phoenix Fleece Pullover Hoodie

You'll Need: Long-Sleeve Maxi Dress + Trench Coat + Sneakers

Don't be afraid to wear a dress on the plane. In fact, if that's more aligned with your style and comfort zone, you should wear one. If you do, though, pick something that's soft, stretchy, and void of any "pokies."

Mango model in floral maxi dress

You'll Need: Wool Coat + Crewneck Sweater + Short-Sleeve T-Shirt + Baggy Jeans

Jeans aren't your travel-day enemy—tight, constricting jeans are . By opting for a baggier, more worn-in pair, all the aforementioned issues with denim go out the window.

H&M + Cotton T-Shirt

You'll Need: Trench Coat + Claw Clip + Big Tote Bag

"The big claw clip is another travel staple for me," says Agyemang. "I hate having my hair in my face when I travel, and the clip just keeps everything intact. I feel like it actually maintains the volume in my hair when I travel. Therefore, by the time I arrive at my destination and take my hair down, it's still full with body and bounce." Added tip: Bring extras in your XL tote bag in case the little prongs break off. 

Urban Outfitters + Mable Jumbo Claw Clip

You'll Need:  Fitted Turtleneck + Quilted Jacket + Track Pants

Since you never know what the in-flight temperature might be on your plane, layering can make or break your travel experience. Freezing for 13 hours sucks, but so does sweating the entire time. " I like to wear layers so that I'm bundled up when I need to be but can peel off the layers if it gets warm," Coscarelli says. 

Quilted Bomber Jacket - Women

You'll Need: Oversize T-Shirt + Lightweight Khakis + Compression Socks + Sporty Sneakers

"I'm addicted to compression socks," says Coscarelli, who notes that they've helped her deal with discomfort, swelling, and bad circulation during long flights. *Buys compression socks.*

When it comes to travel, we know you need to find the perfect balance between comfort and style. After all, it’s great to look put together while hopping on a flight, but not at the cost of your comfort—especially on long-haul trips. Rest assured, we've curated a list of wardrobe essentials to achieve flawless travel and airport outfits, whether you are exploring a new destination for business or pleasure.

When it comes to the best travel outfits for women, accessories play a critical role in keeping you comfy and organized. All you have to do is remember a comfortable pair of shoes , compression socks to keep things moving, an eye mask that's an upgrade from the one the airline provides, and a chic shawl that doubles as a blanket. And of course, no travel outfit would be complete without a fashionable (and functional!) carry-on bag on your arm or atop your luggage . This bag should house all of your essentials and still level up your airport outfit. Keep reading for some of the best travel and airport outfit ideas your next trip.

Missky Long-Sleeved Oversize Pant Set

You might look like you're already on vacation if you show up to the airport in this neutral pants and button-down set. Available in two bright and two neutral colors, and sizes small to 2XL.

Spanx AirEssentials Wide-Leg Pants

AirEssentials Wide-Leg Pants

Sometimes nothing less than sweats will do, and here is where Spanx really excels. Oprah picked these for her 2022 Favorite Things , saying, “You might know Spanx for its shapewear, but it also does fantastic cozy clothes. When I tell you this set feels light as air, I’m not kidding. It’s my new leisure suit. The perfectly loose-and-lightweight fabric is like buttah!”

J. Crew Cashmere-Wool Travel Wrap

Cashmere-Wool Travel Wrap

Let's be honest, you can't always count on the airline's blankets to keep you warm, and some even leave annoying fluff behind. Stay warm and stylish with your own wearable blanket by way of this travel necessity from J. Crew that comes in eight different colors.

Dr. Scholl's Time Off Platform Sneakers

Time Off Platform Sneakers

Celebrated for their consciously comfortable footwear, these sneakers from Dr. Scholl's are tricked out with tons of features for all-day comfort. Inside, anatomical cushioning and arch support keep you covered while a lightweight, anti-slip platform sole protects on the outside. This minimalist sneaker looks just as good with a matching suit as it does a low-key sweat set.

Girlfriend Collective Compressive Pocket Legging

Compressive Pocket Legging

Leggings are a perfect choice for traveling wear. And these have Oprah's seal of approval, as they were picked for Oprah's 2022 Favorite Things list. Eco-friendly and size-inclusive (the range goes through 6XL), these compression leggings are available in a plethora of hues. Plus, they feature double-side seaming and pockets.

Vuori Elevation Trouser in Midnight Heather

Elevation Trouser in Midnight Heather

Vuori is celebrated for its super-cozy pieces. The best thing about these pants? They look put together while the stretch-knit fabric is as comfy as your favorite Vuori loungers. The high-rise waist and loose fit of the leg give you an effortlessly stylish silhouette.

Chico's Travelers No Tummy Pants

Travelers No Tummy Pants

Chico's Travelers collection is made from wrinkle-resistant fabrics in comfortable silhouettes. Thanks to a pull-on waist and front darts, these No Tummy Pants are flattering and always look put together. If red isn't your vibe, they come in three other colors as well as the bestselling wide-leg Hutton pants in black.

Athleta Everlasting Button-Down Top

Everlasting Button-Down Top

A classic button-down is a travel essential that elevates any in-transit look. Athleta's Everlasting button-down has all the details you need: a lightweight, odor-control stretch fabric and longer length for coverage. Luckily, you can cover all your neutral bases with navy, black, and white. Plus, it comes in an extended range of sizes from XXS to 3X.

Hoka Transport GTX Sneakers

Transport GTX Sneakers

Hoka's sneakers are cult Oprah Daily office favorites and podiatrist-approved . Not only do they look good with just about everything, but the Transport GTX also offer quick-toggle lacing for an easy on-off, as well as a full-length EVA midsole for the highest level of cushioning and arch support.

Spanx Perfect Pant High-Rise Flare

Perfect Pant High-Rise Flare

The perfect pant does not exist—wait, yes it does, and here it is. This high-rise flare option is designed with premium ponte fabric and a comfortable pull-on design for maximum comfort and easy styling on your flight. Plus, it comes in size XS to 3X, so there's something for everyone.

Spanx Women's AirEssentials 1/2 Zip Sweater

Women's AirEssentials 1/2 Zip Sweater

Sometimes nothing less than sweats will do, and here is where Spanx really excels. Oprah picked this top for her 2023 Favorite Things , saying, “Wow. Wow. Wow. May I tell you I got this set last year? I wore it in a photo shoot for O Quarterly and never looked back...” Why not pair it with the coordinating wide-leg pants for a full sweatsuit?

Everlane Organic Cotton Honeycomb Cardigan

Organic Cotton Honeycomb Cardigan

This gorgeous honeycomb cotton cardigan is part of the latest iteration of Everlane Editions: The Art of Spring Layering. Crafted from responsibly sourced and lower-impact materials, this 100 percent organic cotton knit is ideal for layering before, during, and after your flight.

32º DEGREES Lightweight Recycled Poly-Fill Shirt Jacket

Lightweight Recycled Poly-Fill Shirt Jacket

Sometimes a full on coat is not needed for travel, but you can never be quite sure of the weather. That's why a a little packable shacket—part shirt, part jacket—comes in. In black, olive green, or dark blue, the jacket will be your go-to for travel. Keep in mind, it runs slightly big in order to allow for comfortable layering of hoodies or sweaters underneath. There's a reason why Oprah tapped it on her Favorite Things list .

Dr. Motion Compression Socks with Enhanced Cushioning (3 Pack)

Compression Socks with Enhanced Cushioning (3 Pack)

Compression socks are always a good ideal for traveling. We recommend these styles from Dr. Motion that offer graduated compression of 8 to 15 mmHg while providing arch support. Unlike other socks that can feel scratchy or clammy, these are soft, moisture-wicking, and subtly cushioned.

Original Puffer Hug Scarf

Original Puffer Hug Scarf

If you're traveling for business to a location that you're not thrilled about, chances are you are in need of a hug. Don't worry, this puffer hug scarf doubles as a warm wrap to keep you cozy and a hug to make you feel loved. It's fleece-lined with deep pockets so you can also store your ID and credit card without any issues.

Naadam Original 100 Percent Cashmere Sweater

Original 100 Percent Cashmere Sweater

Warm, soft, and chic—few things are as reliable as a plain cashmere sweater. At under $100, Naadam's perfect crewneck comes in core and limited-edition hues. Pro tip: Order a size or two larger than your usual for an ultra-cozy fit. And what's more, the sweater is machine-washable (yes, you read that right).

Frankie 4 Triple Layered-Support and Cushion Liberty Black Boots

Triple Layered-Support and Cushion Liberty Black Boots

If it's not on your radar yet, Frankie 4 is a podiatrist-designed and female-founded shoe line that offers insanely comfortable footwear. These are the perfect black boots to run around the airport and to wear on your trip as your professional or going out shoes.

Birdies Vesper Seven-Layer Cloud Comfort Loafers

Vesper Seven-Layer Cloud Comfort Loafers

Birdies' classic loafer will elevate any airport look. They're crafted with tumbled Nappa leather, a no-slip rubbber sole, and the brand's signature seven-layer footbed for ultra-cushy support. Plus, the Vesper comes in sizes 5 to 12, and a range of colors like silver leather and cappucino with raffia accents.

JW PEI Aylin Canvas Cellphone Crossbody Bag

Aylin Canvas Cellphone Crossbody Bag

Making sure you have all your essentials when going through airport security can be tough, but with this crossbody, you'll have your phone and cards right at hand.

Asutra Silk Eye Mask & Pillow

Silk Eye Mask & Pillow

Oprah chose this eye mask for her 2023 Favorite Things list. "Sleeping with a mask is life-changing—I cannot tell you how much the quality of my sleep has improved," she said.

A Travel Editor's Best Travel Outfits for Long Flights

@sophiemiura / Instagram

There's a certain art to building the perfect travel outfit. Last year, I spent 203 hours on airplanes jetting from New York to Tahiti, Australia, Finland, Japan, and more as part of my job as an editor and travel writer. When I'm not reviewing new hotels and airlines for work, I try to squeeze in the odd trip to explore under-the-radar vacation spots at my own pace. So trust me when I say, I've had enough practice refining the best travel outfits for long flights. 

I have two rules when it comes to dressing for a long-haul flight : It has to be comfortable and something I wouldn't mind being seen in if I bumped into a coworker. With that in mind, I think I've found the best travel outfit formula. Here are the exact items I mix and match on a flight, depending on my mood and the destination. Every item ticks the boxes: They're incredibly well made, stretch, don't rub, are casually stylish, and stand up to the rigors of flight after flight.

Keep scrolling for my must-have travel and airport outfit essentials—accessories included—for the next time you take to the skies.

Holdall Duffle

This is my go-to carry-on for weekend trips. I love the leather straps, waterproof material, and the fact that I'm never asked to check it in if the overhead bins are full. Made out of 14 upcycled plastic water bottles and natural cotton, it gets bonus points for being eco-friendly too.

Durable Carry-On

A recent trip to L.A. revealed that the entire MyDomaine team swears by Away luggage . The carry-on features a hidden laundry bag, not to mention, the hard shell means I never think twice about bringing a bottle of wine back from vacation.

Enclosed Lace-Up Shoes

I prefer to wear these Thousand Fell sneakers if I'm traveling for work and want to look a bit more polished. Lace-up sneakers are a must at airports: I can loosen the laces when my feet swell midair and don't feel gross in socks when I have to take them off to pass through security.

Leather Jacket

I always travel with a leather jacket because it makes my outfit look cool and styled, even if I'm wearing sneakers and leggings. This jacket by Topshop has been on my wishlist for months.

Loose-Fitting Top

We all love Madewell's relaxed basics for traveling. This scoop-neck T-shirt is loose and layers well with a leather jacket and cardigan. The price tag might sound steep for a basic tee but the supersoft Peruvian Pima cotton is worth the splurge.

No-Frills Leggings

These shape-sculpting leggings are my travelwear go-to. They are comfy, silky soft, and have a flattering high waist. Best of all, the fabric is quick-drying, which comes in handy when you spill a drink due to unexpected turbulence—or maybe just clumsiness.

Black Jeans

I prefer to wear leggings, but if I'm lucky enough to be flying in business class, I try to look a bit more presentable. Topshop's Jamie jeans are the only ones I wear on a flight. They have so much stretch and a high waistband that's comfortable even if I feel bloated midair.

Quality Headphones

Screaming babies, loud talkers, and a plane's white noise are no match for these B&O Play over-ear headphones. Not only do they muffle noisy passengers and vessels so that I can enjoy my in-flight entertainment in peace, but they look super stylish while doing so. I don't fly without them.

Opt for noise-cancelling headphones to ensure a stress-free flight.

Parachute's Merino Travel Kit makes coach feel like first class. I find the warm blanket makes it easier to get quality sleep on a flight and sometimes wrap it around myself like a scarf when the cabin is cold. Plus, it comes in a zip-up wool bag that is the perfect travel pillowcase.

Waterproof Tote

I've had this Longchamp tote for over five years, and it's lasted countless flights and adventures. The waterproof outer casing means that the contents are protected from any spills, and it folds up into a flat package to be stored in my luggage when I arrive at the destination. 

Personal Handbag

This is the perfect crossbody bag for travel: It's small, but still fits a phone and passport, zips up for safety, is made from durable leather, and can be monogrammed so you'll never mix it up with a stranger's bag.

My go-to long-haul flight outfit is pretty simple. This is one time when comfort is a priority, but that doesn’t mean you have to look frumpy. You can leave the pajama pants packed away and still survive a long flight in economy wearing comfortable clothes. Affiliate links are included in this post.

  • Comfortable Pants
  • Shirt with Cardigan or Hoodie
  • Blanket Scarf or Travel Blanket
  • Compression Socks
  • Slip-On Shoes

Best Pants for Long Flights

First, let’s talk about pants. I love to wear solid black leggings. They can be paired with some cute tops and/or cardigans and look fashionable while still staying comfortable. I buy simple ones on Amazon , but I also love prAna leggings . Lately, I’m wearing Aerie pocket leggings , which my daughter got me hooked on.

If you’re not a legging person, you can find some great travel pants that work well. Look for soft, quick-drying fabrics, and soft or elastic waistbands. I’ve really fallen in love with these Columbia pants . But lately, I’ve been hooked on wearing these Eddie Bauer Departure Joggers , and these pact Airplane pants (note, I’m 5’9″ and the pact pants do fit me like cropped pants).

I also love pants that have a stretch waist like the prAna Fernie Beach Pants (lightweight and loose), prAna Kanab Pant (a bit more stylish and slim silhouette), and Spanx AirEssentials Wide Leg pants . I have the AirEssentials jumpsuit and love the material but jumpsuits are definitely not travel-friendly!

I will mention that I’ve started to realize the appeal of fitted/gathered-leg pants versus wide-leg yoga pants for flights. When you wear pants that aren’t fitted at the ankles, you will likely have them touching the ground when you use the restroom. Which isn’t a good thing in an airplane bathroom!

Men (at least my husband) often like to wear jeans for long flights. I’m always recommending he wear athletic or travel pants as they typically are less restrictive and they can dry easier than denim in case of a spill.

What Shirts to Wear on a Long Flight

I love to wear soft t-shirts when I fly. My favorites are from prAna and Target . But any soft comfortable tee will work. I also really like cute graphic tees and normally find great ones at Target and Old Navy . Graphic tees can look really cute with a cardigan and leggings.

I love to pair my black leggings with a white t-shirt, but keep in mind that white does show stains. If you’re prone to spills or traveling with little ones, you might want to wear dark tops or shirts with a print. I’ve recently started wearing tops that have built-in bras for more comfort, like these Duluth Trading Built-In Bra Tank Top.

Merino wool tops are also very popular with travelers and can often be worn multiple days without smelling. I’m very sensitive to the texture of tops and most merino wool doesn’t work for me. However, if you like merino wool the one I like is the SmartWool Active Ultralite , and my friends like Unbound Merino (especially for men’s shirts).

I often pair my leggings and t-shirt with a long cardigan that has pockets . Men might want to bring a hoodie for an added layer.

You might also want to wear a blanket scarf on the flight. A cute blanket scarf will make your outfit look more put together. Plus, it can serve as a good travel item to wear during your trip. You can even get a travel scarf that has a hidden pocket for your passport and such.

I often will use a travel blanket that packs up small. Often on long flights overseas, they’ll provide a blanket at your seat. However, I’m not always sure if those blankets are clean. Packing a blanket scarf or travel blanket is the best way to keep you warm and avoid germs. :)

Best Shoes to Wear on a Long Flight

Before we chat about shoes, consider packing a pair of compression socks, I love my Comrad socks . Compression socks are worn to help prevent blood clots and deep vein thrombosis. You might also pack a pair of cozy socks to keep your feet warm if you suffer from poor circulation. I’ll share below in this post how useful compression socks are for long flights!

You’ll want to think through what comfortable shoes to wear for your flight. I highly recommend slip-on shoes, like these Dr. Scholl’s shoes (run large) or my new favorite Vionic Pismo Sneakers . I recommend slip-on shoes because they’ll feel better if your feet swell on the flight (a common thing) and it’s also convenient for getting through airport security.

Of course, if you’re packing light you might be wearing your bulkiest shoes, like hiking boots. But if you’re going to be on a long flight, I highly recommend you wear slip-on shoes. I also never recommend wearing sandals or flip-flops for flying. Unless you really overheat while flying, these types of shoes don’t provide enough coverage for a flight in my opinion.

Long Haul Flight Tips to Stay Comfortable

Here are a few of my best travel tips for long flights, including what I think are the best seats when you’ll be sitting for a long time.

Choosing the Right Seat for a Long Plane Ride

The first tip has to do with seat choice, and I have a few thoughts on that. First, if you have long legs, consider splurging for an extra legroom premium seat if available. Of course, if you’re playing the points game or flying on an airline that allows upgrading, one of the best things for comfort is to upgrade to first class. Check out my experience flying business class on TAP Portugal and JetBlue Mint .

Just be sure that the premium seat includes extra legroom, some premium seats do not have more room and only offer early boarding or forward seat location perks.

If you’re not splurging for premium seats, then check the seat map, and don’t be scared to pick a farther back row. People love to sit closer to the front, so those rows fill up faster. Sometimes on flights that aren’t full, you’ll find the back rows have a lot of empty middle seats, sometimes you’ll even see someone with an entirely empty row.

A few notes, keep in mind where bathrooms are located. Sometimes extra legroom seats are also near the lavatories and if you’re in an aisle seat on a big plane with middle plane lavatories you may have people next to you often, not to mention the smell and noise.

Also, note on large flights overseas, families with babies can often be seated at the front “bulkhead” rows in order to have access to a bassinet system for the baby to sleep. If you sit near a bassinet row be sure to pack some earplugs. A good idea actually for anyone flying as babies aren’t the only loud things on planes!

airplane seats

My final tip about seat choice is to choose a window seat if you like to sleep. I often choose aisle seats to prevent claustrophobic feelings, however, I never sleep well with people constantly bumping my shoulder or elbow or grabbing my seat back as they walk past. You’ll also have to get up to let any of your row-mates out to use the restroom, which could interrupt your sleep.

If you’re planning to sleep on the flight, check out my review for the best travel neck pillows for planes . If you’re traveling overnight, sleeping on the flight is a great way to help beat jet lag. The sooner you try to adjust to the new timezone, the better. Taking melatonin can be helpful to tell your body when you want to sleep.

Selecting a window seat allows you to lean against the wall/window and snooze away undisturbed. Window seats also have the perk of getting to look at and photograph any beautiful landscapes that you might fly over. However, aisle seats do have the advantage of easy access to the bathrooms and it allows you more freedom to move around for blood circulation.

Just be sure to use the restroom right when you board. After meal service can be a good time to use the lavatory too since people are often awake and tray tables aren’t full of meals and drinks.

Stay Hydrated

One thing you’ll notice on long flights is that the flight crew will often walk by with cups of water. There is a reason for that! The airplane cabin has very low humidity and you can quickly become dehydrated.

Dehydration can lead to skin discomfort, fatigue, muscle cramping, and headaches. So, when you see a flight attendant walk by with a tray or bottle of water, take a cup. Your body will thank you!

Another tip is to pack your own reusable water bottle and fill it up at the airport once you’ve cleared security. Liquid IV is a great option for adding flavor to water for those who don’t love drinking water. Many airports have water bottle filling stations near the drinking fountains. If you have lounge access, they often have chilled, flavored water in a dispenser.

Get Up and Move

First and foremost, obey the seat belt light. But if the pilot has given the all-clear to move about the cabin, feel free to take a bit of a walk. I like to regularly head to the bathroom just to stretch my legs and wash my hands.

There are a lot of germs on airplanes, so keeping your hands washed is a good idea, plus you’ll stretch those legs and that’ll help you stay comfortable on a long flight.

Long Flight Essentials

The other major tip for surviving a long flight is to pack a few essential travel items that will help you stay comfortable. I always pack a little bag of go-to comfort items for the flight and then have them easily accessible at my feet.

You’re going to want to pack things like:

  • hand sanitizer
  • disinfecting wipes
  • charging cables
  • reading material
  • downloaded movies/shows
  • + more listed on my packing list

I disagree about wearing pants or leggings on long overseas flights. I prefer to wear a cotton tee shirt dress. Usually in a midi length with a cardigan with pockets and a scarf. It feels like your in your comfy nightgown in your seat and very easy to sleep in.

@Becki, That is exactly how I feel! Question- I am traveling overseas for the first time. How do I style Compression socks with a T shirt dress? Thanks!

Tuesday 2nd of January 2024

Nice to hear that works for you. I would be way too cold in a dress and I also sleep in pants not a gown, so perhaps I'm comfortable with my legs covered. I do love packing midi dresses for travel though as they're great to look like you're more put together when touring and they can be very comfortable!

Very informative tips from you and your readers!

It is key is to wear something to ease the use of the small toilet on the plane; long cardigan, flowy pants are not. Sincere suggestions to readers to wear non-inflammable cotton pants that are easy to pull down and up and won't make any water stain obvious and don't need a long cardigan.

Tuesday 21st of March 2023

Thanks for the tips I have a flight it’s not exactly long it’s two hours But I want to be comfortable and I have learned When I fly To always stay hydrated and to use the bathroom And you mentioned all that thanks

Friday 10th of March 2023

I’m in healthcare and travel frequently both domestically and abroad. I agree with most everything, the exception being the window seat. The windows don’t get cleaned frequently and the shade has germs from passengers moving it up and down. You should Never lay your head against it. I alway choose an isle and bring a good pillow.

Monday 13th of March 2023

Planes are dirty for sure! Definitely one of the reasons I pack sanitizing wipes and wipe all those areas after boarding. And I use a travel pillow with a washable cover!

What to Wear for Long-Haul Flight - A Complete Guide

Long-haul flights are a gateway to thrilling destinations, but they often involve hours of sitting in a confined space. Your flight outfit has the potential to make or break your trip. It’s important to be dressed appropriately so that you can have a pleasant and comfortable flight experience.  

Today, we’ll be talking about what to wear for a long-haul flight. So if you’re curious about how to nail your next airport fit, read on!

Prioritizing Comfort

When embarking on an extended flight, such as a long-haul adventure , comfort becomes your closest companion. Long-haul flights can be physically and mentally demanding. Spending several hours in a cramped seat can cause a lot of discomfort, fatigue, and restlessness. For your physical and mental well-being, it’s important to dress comfortably.

travel outfits for long flights

The clothing you select for your long-haul flight is not just a fashion statement; it’s a strategic choice. Your attire can greatly influence your comfort level. The right clothing can help regulate body temperature, reduce muscle strain, and enhance your overall in-flight experience.

This will help you arrive at your destination feeling refreshed and ready to explore your new destination. 

The Basics of Dressing for a Long-Haul Flight

Your choice of clothing for a long-haul flight forms the foundation of your in-flight comfort. It’s important that you nail this so that you can have a pleasant experience.

travel outfits for long flights

Let’s talk about some of the most basic considerations.

Fabric and Material

 Begin with the fabric of your clothing. Always wear materials that prioritize comfort over style. Soft, breathable, and moisture-wicking fabrics are excellent choices for a long-haul flight. Cotton and natural fibers are great options, as they allow your skin to breathe and minimize irritation during long hours of wear.

Layering for Temperature Control

Long-haul flights often involve frequent changes in cabin temperatures. Layering your clothing allows you to adapt to these fluctuations easily. Start with a comfortable base layer and add or remove items as needed. A light cardigan or scarf can be your best friend when it comes to staying cozy at high altitudes , and you can always take these off when things get warmer.

Good Fitting

One important thing during long-haul flights is wearing clothing with the right fit. Avoid tight, restrictive items that can hinder blood circulation. Loose-fitting clothing is a better choice for staying comfy during long flights. Wear breathable fabrics that allow air circulation, preventing that stuffy, trapped, and uncomfortable feeling.

By understanding these fundamental aspects of long-haul flight attire, you’ll be able to make sure that your clothing helps you remain comfortable throughout your journey.

Choose Sensible Footwear

Your footwear plays a great role in the overall comfort of your flight and trip. Whenever you’re on the road or taking a flight, it’s important to remember that you’ll be on your feet for quite a while. This is why it’s important to wear the right shoes. 

travel outfits for long flights

Slip-on shoes or comfortable sneakers are a great choice for flights and travel in general. Avoid lace-up boots or shoes that are difficult to remove, as you’ll want to slip them off during the flight to increase circulation and comfort. When it comes to shoes, the simpler and more practical, the better! 

Dressing for the Occasion

Now that we’ve talked about the fundamental elements of dressing for a long-haul flight, let’s talk about how we can apply these concepts to each element of our airport fit.

travel outfits for long flights

First things first, a T-shirt should be your base layer and must be comfortable. You can dress it up however you want based on the climate and temperature, but it’s important to kick things off with something simple and convenient. 

travel outfits for long flights

  • Opt for a soft, breathable t-shirt made of natural fibers like cotton. It should have a relaxed fit to allow ease of movement and minimize discomfort.
  • Consider layering with a long-sleeve shirt or cardigan that you can easily remove if you get warm.

When you’re on the move and especially heading on a long-haul flight, socks are an absolute must. We strongly recommend not skipping out on this very important clothing item (you’ll thank us later!). 

travel outfits for long flights

  • Consider wearing comfortable, moisture-wicking, and breathable socks. 
  • To prevent swelling and promote blood circulation during long periods of sitting, consider wearing compression socks. They can make a significant difference in how your legs feel after the flight.
  • Compression socks can be particularly beneficial for promoting circulation during long periods of sitting.
  • Choose socks that are not too tight around the ankles to avoid constricting blood flow.

When the weather gets tricky or you’re just confused about how to dress for cooler temperatures, a scarf can be your best friend.

travel outfits for long flights

Scarves are actually a wonderful and very versatile travel companion, so we recommend carrying one with you on your flight.

  • A lightweight scarf can serve multiple purposes. 
  • It can keep you warm when the cabin temperature drops. 
  • Scarves can serve as a makeshift pillow or blanket, and even be used to cover your head and face if you want to block out light and noise.

Leggings are a comfortable and universal clothing item that gained immense popularity among travelers, and that too for all the right reasons! 

  • Leggings are a comfortable and versatile choice. They provide freedom of movement and are ideal for long flights. Look for leggings made from breathable materials.
  • Make sure they have a comfortable waistband that won’t dig into your skin during extended periods of sitting.
  • If you prefer pants to leggings, choose loose-fitting trousers made from breathable fabrics like cotton or linen. Elastic waistbands can provide added comfort during long flights.
  • Avoid pants that are too tight or constricting, as they can lead to discomfort over time.

When in doubt, just pack on some layers! 

  • Layering is essential for adjusting to varying cabin temperatures. Start with a lightweight base layer like a t-shirt, add a cardigan or long-sleeve shirt, and keep a shawl or scarf within reach.
  • This layered approach allows you to adapt to temperature changes and maintain comfort throughout your journey.

Essential Carry-On Packing List

In the world of long-haul flights, comfort extends beyond your clothing choices. Packing your carry-on smartly can greatly enhance your overall in-flight experience.

travel outfits for long flights

Here are some of the best things to bring along:

  • Hydration: Staying well-hydrated is crucial. Pack a reusable water bottle to fill up after security, ensuring you have access to water throughout the flight.
  • Snacks: Travel-sized snacks are a lifesaver when you need a quick energy boost. Consider items like nuts, granola bars, or dried fruit.
  • Entertainment: Bring your favorite book, e-reader, or digital device loaded with movies, music, or podcasts to keep boredom at bay.
  • Medications: If you have specific medical needs or take prescription medications, make sure they’re in your carry-on, along with any necessary documents.
  • Personal Care: Basic toiletries, like a toothbrush, toothpaste, and a small bottle of hand sanitizer, can help you feel refreshed during your journey.

travel outfits for long flights

  • Neck Pillow: A memory foam or inflatable neck pillow can provide much-needed support and help prevent neck strain.
  • Eye Mask: Block out cabin light and create a serene environment for rest or relaxation.
  • Earplugs or Noise-Canceling Headphones: Reduce cabin noise and enjoy some peaceful moments.
  • Blanket or Shawl: Stay cozy and snug during your flight with a blanket or shawl that will not only shield you from harsh weather but also keep you comfortable and cozy when needed.

By packing these essentials and utilizing travel accessories, you can elevate your in-flight comfort to new heights, making your long-haul journey a more pleasant experience.

What to Wear On A Plane

Written by: Niki Landry

Table Of Contents

Over the last few years, I’ve developed a sort of formula for long-haul trips. I know the clothes I prefer to wear from my travel capsule wardrobe , I have my electronics and airplane toiletries readily available, and my water bottle is full before boarding the plane.

These are the small steps I take to make my airport and plane experience tolerable, if not enjoyable. It all begins with my outfit, though. If I’m wearing the wrong clothes, it can throw everything out of order. Wear these suggested outfits on the plane or pack individual outfits in each packing cube as shown in this video!

To help you plan what to wear on a plane, I’ve put together 5 airplane-friendly outfits that work well for long-haul trips.

Casual-Chic Outfit

My first outfit involves leggings, some cute espadrilles, and a chic, yet practical backpack. I try to balance fashion with the need for practicality as much as possible. Here’s a quick breakdown of the essential items:

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Shop Sizes XXS-XXL: Nordstrom

Zella Live In Leggings (Reader’s Choice!)

Our readers’ all time favorite style to wear at home and while traveling is the Zella Live In leggings , available in sizes XXS-XXL .

I don’t leave home without a pair of black leggings ; in fact, I am usually wearing them out the door. They are the ultimate in comfort and my favorite bottoms to wear on planes. 

The dark color helps conceal any mishaps or spills, the stretch is perfect for extended periods of sitting, and they keep you warm when the plane inevitably becomes freezing mid-flight. 

You can also find out more in our Zella leggings review !

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Shop Sizes S-3X: Amazon

SSOULM Peplum Top

I paired these leggings with a comfy yet classic peplum top and a lightweight open cardigan . A peplum top is a terrific basic that has flair and can be dressed up or down. The one pictured above by SSOLUM is available in sizes S-XL and 1X-3X . 

Both the peplum and a cardigan would pair well with any number of bottoms once you get to your destination.

Sam Edelman Verona Flat

The adorable Sam Edelman espadrilles are easy to slip on and off at security. Plus, they are a nice closed-toe option for warmer weather. Just give yourself enough time pre-trip to break them in.

Shop: Nordstrom  | Longchamp

Longchamp ‘Le Pliage’ Backpack 

My go-to bag is the Longchamp backpack which is well loved by TFG readers and by me! It’s nylon, so quite durable, yet the leather trim adds a stylish finish and it fits all my airplane essentials like a tablet and a small toiletry kit to freshen up. 

And once I land I can use it as my day bag! 

Learn more about the benefits of the ‘Le Pliage” backpack in our complete review !

Here’s the full example of the outfit, with some suggested color ideas:

My second outfit is geared towards more warm-weather travel, so I will wear some versatile items that will double as my travel clothes. This includes a maxi dress , cute sandals , and a tote . Here’s a quick breakdown of the essential items:

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Shop XS-XL (Regular and Petite): Nordstrom

A comfy tank maxi dress is the perfect base for a long-haul flight. Its unrestrictive shape and soft fabric allow you to stay covered and feel fresh for the whole ride. The one pictured from Loveappella comes in regular and petite sizing, from XS-XL .

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Shop Madewell: XXS-XXL |  1X-4X

Madewell Denim Jacket

When I know sunnier skies are waiting for me, I go for a light jacket like this one from Madewell. I always wear or hold my jacket on the plane. It doubles as a makeshift blanket during nap time. The one highlighted comes in sizes XXS-XXL and 1X-4X .

I will also layer a t-shirt over a sleeveless maxi for extra warmth–and to make my bag a little lighter. (Here are some tips on how to layer clothes .)  

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Vionic Rest Kirra Backstrap Sandal

For shoes, I will wear some strappy sandals that have a pop of color, like silver or metallic but can still act as neutral. These ones from Vionic are sleek, yet their orthotic arch support makes them perfect for walking around at my intended destination.

Lounge-Chic Outfit

When planning your outfit for a long travel day, the focus should be comfort, but you also want to put a little effort into looking polished and presentable, which is why the third outfit is a nice balance of lounge pants and some fun contrast with a leather backpack. Here’s a quick breakdown of the essential items:

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Shop Sizes 0-20: Lululemon

Lululemon Pants

These lounge pants make up the perfect laid-back plane outfit with style. They have a drawcord that moves with you, clever hidden pockets to store small items, and a waistband that’s soft against skin. I love them! (and so do many TFG readers). Lululemon offers these pants in sizes 0-20 .

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Shop Sizes XXS-XXL: Nordstrom 

Madewell Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee

I know I can’t go wrong with a comfy tee, and the Madewell V-neck t-shirt is a favorite. It’s soft, modern, and uber versatile!

Shop: Amazon | Dr. Scholl’s

Dr. Scholl’s Nova Slip-Ons

Slip-ons will forever be a great idea to wear on a long-haul flight. I can take them on/off at security easily and my feet feel encased in total comfort. 

Add the ultra popular Bombas no show socks if you plan to fly with sneakers.

Remember: all of these items can easily be re-worn when you get to your destination. 

Here are some cute and comfortable slip on sneakers – an easy airport option!

Rebecca Minkoff Julian Backpack

A quick summary of why I love the Rebecca Julian backpack : it looks attractive, it’s spacious enough for all my plane essentials (and when I go sightseeing), it has a secret pocket for my passport or wallet, and I’m happy wearing it with all my outfits while traveling. A win-win!

This backpack drums up so many conversations with TFG readers, we devoted a review to it!

Urban-Chic Outfit

When you’re planning what to wear on a plane, keep in mind that it’s best to avoid tight-fitting clothing while sitting for extended periods of time. Speaking of tight fitting, my fourth outfit does consist of jeans but they are stretchy and I pair them with a cozy cardigan , and ankle boots . Here’s a quick breakdown of the essential items:

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Shop Sizes 0-18: Amazon | Moosejaw | Prana

prAna Kayla Jean

If you like to wear denim, opt for looser-fitting boyfriend jeans or a stretchy comfortable pair such as this style by prAna . They won’t constrict movement on board but can be wearable for sightseeing or dressed up with flats for a night out.

You can grab these jeans in sizes 0-18 .

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Shop Sizes XS-XL: Nordstrom

Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Lite Circle Cardigan

A lightweight cardigan is versatile as a cover for warmth on the plane, but to add some interest to an outfit once you’ve landed. To layer, you can add a comfy tee under your cardigan. T-shirts are the basics at the core of every wardrobe. If chosen carefully, they can look stylish, go from day to night, and be worn from the city to a mountain.

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Shop Sizes XS-3X: L.L. Bean

L.L. Bean Pima Tee

Better than basic, this  L.L. Bean Pima t-shirt  has both comfort and style, for both travel or hanging at home. Made of Supima® cotton, it’s said to be the softest type of cotton, and dries quickly, which is ideal during a trip. With two-way stretch, it gives when you move. Best of all, they come in a range of sizes, including petites and plus.

This comfy and versatile tee is great for travel! Here’s what our readers recommended as the best t-shirts for women .

what-to-wear-on-a-plane

Blondo Villa Waterproof Ankle Boot

Always try to wear your heaviest or bulkiest shoes on the plane; it may be your boots. I swear by Blondo Villa ankle boots . They are so easy to wear on a plane and are sturdy against rain while looking absolutely chic! 

When flying, you can always slip them off and wear compression socks to help soothe your legs for the duration of the flight.

The Blondo Villa ankle boots are such a reader and editor favorite, we did a review on them!

Travelon Anti-Theft Cross-Body Bucket Bag

If I have a separate backpack with me, I’d take some that’s more like a purse. The Travelon bucket bag is sleek and super functional. With locking compartments, a slash resistant body and shoulder strap, and RFID blocking technology, I feel safe when disembarking, and can use this as my main purse.

Here’s the full example of the outfit, with some suggest ed color ideas:

Cardigan | Hand Cream | Tee | Tag | Crossbody | Boots | Scarf | Pants

Cozy-Chic Outfit

You’ll notice that in all of these outfits, the legs are covered. That’s for two reasons: airports and planes are always cold, and you can keep your luggage light by wearing some of your bulkier clothing on the plane. Hence, my fifth outfit entails just that, a jacket to snuggle up in, along with comfortable leggings , and must-have flats. Here’s a quick breakdown of the essential items:

Shop Sizes XS-4X: J.Jill

J.Jill Slim Leg Wearever Pant

This ensemble, with easy to wear pull up pants by J. Jill, is the perfect alternative to leggings or jeans. Stretchy but tailored, these pants will get a lot of use when you arrive at your destination. 

Voted by TFG readers as some of the most comfortable dress pants for traveling. One reader shares that her pair is “super comfortable,” while another one says that she simply “loves them.”

Shop Sizes S-3XL: Amazon

EIMIN Ruched Draped Top

I like to pair this with a stylish ruched drape top that’s comfortable and soft. And I can pair that later with other bottoms. 

This blouse by Floria is available in sizes S-3XL .

Hi Nikki, Are there any plans to update this article with links that work? Many of these styles are no longer available and I’m sure there are current options that you’ve found since? I realize that links get outdated quickly and that’s the issue with great/helpful articles like this but an update every few years would be so helpful and appreciated.

Alex

Everlane modern loafers are stylish, and bonus, comfortable!

I am going to D.C and I do not know want to wear on the plane. What would be the best thing to wear on the plane, and still look good?

Hi Sam, have a look at this post for ideas for fashionable airplane outfits: https://www.travelfashiongirl.com/airplane-outfits/ Hope you find it helpful! Have an awesome trip! 🙂

Sophie

Hi Alex thank you for the advice! However, I am still a bit stuck in what to wear tomorrow (1 hour and 50 minutes long). I normally wear leggings so if you haven’t replied today or tomorrow morning (I don’t mind I am late anyway) I will wear them. Sophie X

Hi Sophie, for some other ideas for outfits for flying in, have a look at this post: https://www.travelfashiongirl.com/airplane-outfit/ The best tip is to wear what you feel comfortable wearing!! Have an amazing trip! 🙂

Catherine

I’m cold at the best of times so on planes I’m freezing so I wear lots of light, long sleeved, crew neck layers and a light hoodie. I have a four-pocket jacket which holds all my essentials and even my Kindle! For my next long-haul flight I’m planning to wear my heavier shoes to travel in but clip my Crocs flats to the outside of my bag so I can slip them on and off for walking about the plane. For Christmas I got a lovely purple-check blanket scarf which will do as both a scarf and a blanket!

Hi Catherine, that is great advice, thank you for sharing it! 🙂

Kelly

What would be a good travel outfit if you are going to Aruba in July?

alex

Hi Kelly, you can find some tips in our Aruba article: https://travelfashiongirl.com/what-to-pack-for-aruba/

Lindsey

I find I usually wear jeans on the plane, as they are usually my heaviest clothin item. I would love to wear the leggings outfit above, but I haven’t quite yet figured out how to lighten my load when packing jeans.

That’s a good point! If I’m tight with weight in my suitcase I’ll wear the jeans on the plane. If I have a little room, I’ll go for the leggings 😉

Daphne

Thank you for this most informative article. I leave South Africa in a couple of weeks for South America and New Zealand.

Hi Daphne, take a look at these posts for your trip:

Cynthia Karena

Yoga pants or stretch denim – anything stretchy is comfortable. And always a shawl that can double as a scarf, and triple as another blanket layer on areas of your body that get particularly cold (e.g. knees or neck).

Travel Fashion Girl

Great tip! Thanks Cynthia 🙂

Emma Gould

I also find comfortable clothing key on long flights (well any flights really!). Thanks for the suggestions

Comfort is key!

TANYA

I found this post particularly interesting because I have two big trips this summer. I have one east to west coast Canada early morning flight, and another red-eye to the UK. To endure these long and uncomfortable flights these suggestions have been very helpful and I’ve already made a few purchases based on this list. I also came across HUE Travelista leggings which have side pockets that can be added to the list. Thanks!

So glad you found this post useful Tanya 🙂 Those leggings sound awesome too!

Jessica

So glad I read this! Preparing for return flights to Dublin from Vancouver in January with a connection so this is going to come in really handy along with the Winter Signature Essentials packing list.

Glad you found it useful 🙂 Have an awesome time!

Wesley @ Library Educated

Having a few go-to pieces for airline travel always makes me feel like there’s one less thing I have to worry about when traveling. Jeggings, check. Cute cardigan, check. Comfy tshirt, check. Least uncomforatble bra I own, check. 🙂

Exactly! It makes all the difference 🙂

Cammie

Airport Travel Outfits for Long Flights – Ultimate Style Guide

Airport Travel Outfits for Long Flights - Ultimate Style Guide

Airport travel outfits for long flights. Here’s a guide to help you look your best at the airport and beyond.

As someone who loves to travel, I understand the importance of dressing comfortably and appropriately for the airport.

In this guide, I will share with you general tips on choosing practical and stylish clothing for your journey.

We will explore options that prioritize comfort while keeping you looking fashionable.

Whether aiming for a chic and trendy airport outfit or seeking maximum comfort during long flights, I’ve got you covered.

Let’s make your airport experience a stylish and comfortable one!

Table of Contents

Airport Outfit Overview

Dressing up for the airport is a matter of personal preference.

While there are no strict rules, it is generally advisable to dress comfortably and appropriately for the journey.

Opt for comfortable clothing and footwear, and consider practicality, especially during security checks and long flights.

Steer clear of restrictive or tight-fitting clothing, high heels, and elaborate accessories that could trigger additional security screening.

Likewise, avoid clothing with excessive metal or intricate details that could trigger metal detectors.

To ease the process of going through security, opt for slip-on shoes or ones with minimal laces.

Avoid shoes with intricate buckles, zippers, or metal embellishments, as they can cause delays during screening.

Wearing socks or carrying disposable foot covers can provide comfort and hygiene while walking barefoot through security checkpoints.

Choosing comfortable and practical clothing for the airport doesn’t mean sacrificing style or fashion.

There are plenty of stylish, chic, and fashionable options that prioritize comfort.

Opt for well-fitting jeans, breathable fabrics, and trendy sneakers, and accessorize with statement pieces.

It’s possible to strike a balance between fashion and practicality for a stylish airport look.

Meanwhile, I’ve got you several options below.

Warm Plane Outfit

Warm plane outfit

The POLO RALPH LAUREN Collection Purple Label Cashmere Shawl Sweater Jacket is an ideal outfit for plane rides, especially for individuals who tend to feel cold .

The jacket is made of 100% cashmere, which is known for its exceptional softness and warmth.

Cashmere is derived from the fine hair of cashmere goats, making it an excellent insulator.

The shawl collar design adds an extra layer of warmth around the neck area, which is particularly susceptible to drafts and cold air on planes.

It helps to trap body heat and prevent it from escaping, providing additional insulation.

The jacket features half-length sleeves, which allow for easy movement and flexibility.

This design choice is beneficial during plane rides, as it prevents the sleeves from getting in the way while performing tasks such as reading, using electronic devices, or eating.

The exposed arms also provide an opportunity to wear long-sleeve layers underneath if desired.

The pull-on closure makes it easy to put on and take off the jacket, which is convenient during security checks or when adjusting to temperature changes on the plane.

You can quickly layer or remove the jacket as needed without hassle.

The jacket’s origin in Italy is synonymous with craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Italian fashion is highly regarded for its quality and style.

The fact that this jacket is made in Italy indicates a commitment to excellent craftsmanship, ensuring that you receive a high-quality product designed to withstand the test of time.

While the retail price may seem steep, it reflects the jacket’s high-quality materials, construction, and brand reputation.

Investing in a premium cashmere jacket ensures that you are purchasing a durable and luxurious piece that will last for years.

>> Jacket – Check Availability .

Final Thoughts

Travelers often get nervous about what to wear to the airport due to concerns about comfort, security checks, long flights, and striking a balance between style and practicality.

I shared all the information in this guide with you to ease any concerns you may have had about what to wear to the airport.

My goal was to provide guidance and suggestions on choosing comfortable and appropriate clothing while still maintaining your personal style.

I wanted to help you feel more confident and prepared for your journey.

I want to emphasize that in sharing this information, I’m not promoting any specific brand or endorsing particular products.

The outfit suggestions and tips provided should be seen as a guide rather than strict rules set in stone.

Feel free to explore different options and adapt them to your personal preferences and style.

The aim is to provide you with general ideas and considerations to help you make informed choices when selecting your airport attire.

Remember, it’s ultimately about finding what makes you feel comfortable, confident, and ready for your travel experience.

Enjoy the airport!

THE BEST TRAVEL OUTFIT FOR LONG FLIGHTS

THE BEST TRAVEL OUTFIT FOR LONG FLIGHTS | I am sharing a long haul flight outfit idea, including a lightweight tee, a cozy cardigan, the best travel leggings and no fuss slip-on sneakers - casual, comfy airport, car

Do you ever wonder, what is the best travel outfit for long flights? Well, I wrote this post 30,000 feet up in the air on a 7+ hour flight, heading to Arizona for a soccer tournament and a little Spring Break fun. I shared my outfit on Instagram and had a few questions, so I am sharing everything with you here today, including some of my best tips for traveling. For me, the key to what you should wear when you travel, is comfort and practicality. If I can find pieces that fit the criteria and are also cute, they are total winners in my book.

The Best Travel Outfit for Long Flights

travel outfits for long flights

COMFORT IS KEY

As I mentioned, comfort is key for me.  I am always cold and like to feel warm and snuggly. It enhances the whole experience for me. I  have it pretty much nailed down how to assemble the perfect travel outfit for long flights.  It always consists of my Spanx leggings, a cute tee, and a cozy cardigan.  I always wear my slip-on sneakers with footie socks, so I can take off my shoes easily and my feet don’t have to touch the gross airport floor.  I rotate between different cardigans and leggings, but I  always follow the same formula,  Even if it is 100 degrees outside. In my experience airports and planes are always cold, so a cozy cardigan is key for me.  I also always have a big, soft scarf in my carry-on, that can easily double as a pillow or a blanket, and yes, a pair of bed socks. Okay, call me granny.

CHOOSE PRACTICAL PIECES & LAYER

On this trip, I chose my favorite Spanx coated leggings . Honestly, they really are the best travel pants for long flights. They suck you in, in all the right places and are still very comfortable, and the coated part makes them so versatile and more polished looking. Stains seem to repel right off of them (key when traveling with kids) and they are refined enough to wear with dressier pieces and booties throughout the trip.  They were a definite staple in my travel wardrobe this trip. I like to layer my clothes so I have some flexibility with warmth. My typical layered look is a t-shirt, cardigan, and scarf over black leggings.

TEE / LEGGINGS

I love this t-shirt.  The cute knit faux knot detail makes it look a bit more pulled together bunch and makes it look like you have the casual tuck mastered. 😉  Btw, when wearing leggings your bum, should always be covered unless you are 12 and under.

I rotate cardigans, but I love my barefoot dream cardigan . It is like a warm, soft hug and makes the perfect travel companion.  It also makes the most perfect gift.  My other favorite is this Long Sweater Blazer with pockets I snagged at J.Crew.  It adds the perfect layer of warmth and comfort on long flights, especially evening, or overnight flights, and looks more polished.

LEGGINGS / SHOES

These slip-on sneakers have gotten so much wear and have served me well these past few years.  I take them on every single trip and they are so comfy. They double as my regular sneakers on trips as well.  I can walk miles in them and I love that I can take them off easily and slip them right back on. These footie socks are the only ones that I have found that don’t slip off my heels and disappear in most shoes.  They are made from breathable cotton and save me from yucky airport floors.

BE PREPARED

Psst, I also always carry a clean t-shirt, toothbrush, and an extra pair of undies in my carry-on as well.  That way, if god forbid, our luggage gets lost, I can make it a day without feeling super gross.

Love your travel outfit ideas! I need to grab a pair of faux leather leggings!

Thank you! And, yes you do. You will not regret it.

Thank you so much for stating that “always, always, cover your bum when you wear leggings unless you are 12 and under”. I’ve seen so many women who look like they are wearing pantyhose when they wear leggings. Far too much being exposed! The real test is “ladies, how do you look FROM THE BACK?” Most of us look OK from the front view, but I saw a woman one day whose silhouette was really lumpy. Not pretty.

You are hilarious!

35 Best Women's Loungewear Sets to Pack on Your Next Trip

By Madison Flager and Paris Wilson

35 Best Women's Loungewear Sets to Pack on Your Next Trip

All products featured on Condé Nast Traveler are independently selected by our editors. However, when you buy something through our retail links, we may earn an affiliate commission.

Some may argue that traveling by plane is an occasion to dress up, but for most of us at Traveler, comfort is the main priority when planning a transit day ensemble: You want something loose enough that you won't need to readjust (or worse, unbutton) a few hours into a flight or road trip, but put-together enough to feel that you've made a switch out of pajamas and into a true outfit. Luckily, there is no shortage of loungewear sets these days.

Read on for 35 of the best loungewear sets to add to your travel wardrobe , many of which are sitting in our editors' dresser drawers. From upscale sweatsuits to cozy cashmere knits, they'll keep you comfy whether you're sitting on a plane, train, or in the passenger seat, and will get a re-wear on lazy vacation days when the only item on your to-do list is lounging around the Airbnb .

This article has been updated with new information since its original publish date. Additional reporting by Meaghan Kenny.

The Aerie LumberJane collection has been one of the brand's more popular releases. The collection features breathable, lightweight waffle fabric in shirts, shorts, and now polos. The LumberJane polo and short set are perfect for lazy vacation days spent shuffling around in your slippers . Each piece has raw seams along the sleeves, sides, and back that gives it a more lived-in look.

Buck Mason is at the forefront of elevated essentials. The Vintage Interloop set features an oversized crew that has a relaxed fit all around and thinly ribbed stiching on the cuffs to give more structure to the slouchy sleeves. The French terry sweatpants are slimming and so comfortable. Each set looks slightly different than the other, thanks to Buck Mason's Venice Wash technique that creates its cool, vintage look.

We're always raving about Girlfriend Collective, a size-inclusive, sustainably- and ethically-made brand. This set is made from half recycled, half organic cotton. They're available in your classic neutral colors, as well as this rich wine hue.

Kim Kardashian's shapewear and loungewear brand Skims never misses when it comes to cozy sets. The Cotton Fleece collection is a more sporty take on classic loungewear. The soft fleece shorts have an interior drawstring at the waist for a more customizable fit.

Image may contain: Clothing, Long Sleeve, Sleeve, Fleece, Knitwear, Sweater, and Sweatshirt

This chic pullover and sweat shorts both don the recognizable Alexander Wang logo. While the set is one of the trendiest pieces on our list, you'll be pleasantly surprised at just how soft the heavy brushed cotton terry is. Style the set with a small crossbody bag and pair of chunky dad sneakers for quick errands or walks around the city.

You can never go wrong with a simple high-waisted pant and tank top combo. The Anrabess sleeveless set is lightweight and thin, making it supremely packable in any weekender bag or carry-on. At just $30, it is one of the most affordable loungewear sets on our list.

Is there anything easier than throwing on a jumpsuit? Spanx AirEssentials jumpsuit is one of the brand's bestsellers—and it's just been restocked in more colors. We love the drawstring tie at the waist that gives the jumpsuit a more fitted and flattering look.

Traveler 's commerce producer, Paris Wilson , swears by Roots' loungewear. “I've been raving about Roots for years. It's hard to find a brand that doesn't skimp on quality,” she says. The Luxe Crew and Pintuck pant are made from a cotton and cashmere blend. While the material gives it a more chic look, the fit of the set is more relaxed and loose. This can easily be dressed up or down, and would look great with a sleek pair of white sneakers .

Image may contain: Clothing, Long Sleeve, Sleeve, Adult, Person, Shorts, Knitwear, Sweater, and Sweatshirt

The loose fit of the Ramona sweatshirt compliments the brand's drawstring waist Jane shorts. The rouched terry fabric on the inside of each garment keeps you warm and cozy without overheating. As warmer days approach, the yellow dip-dye design is a must-have for your spring and summer wardrobe .

Image may contain: Fashion

If you're looking for a more polished look, the Malibu set is for you. The set is made up of the Frank & Eileen Audrey Capelet and the Catherine Sweatpant . Each piece is made from 100 percent cotton triple fleece, making it incredibly soft. It's the perfect set for a long road trip or a chilly plane.

Image may contain: Clothing, Shorts, Tank Top, and Vest

The Cool Stretch collection from Pact is made from breathable organic cotton. The soft, thin layers are a go-to summer fit when temperatures are high and you just want to chill inside. The tank top and shorts set comes in seven colorways and can be paired with Pact's Airplane cardigan or a cozy hoodie .

If you prefer something a little more roomy, the Oversized Tee and Harem Pant set from This is J is for you. It’s perfect for long-haul flights and road trips where comfort is at the top of your list, but you don’t want to step out in your pajamas. The soft, moisture-wicking fabric will keep you dry and comfortable whether you’re snuggled up on a train or plane.

This set is made for cold weather. The thick fabric will keep you warm and toasty whether you’re hanging inside with friends or out sightseeing. The top has a dropped shoulder sleeve that looks more oversized while the pants feature a wide-leg with a drawstring waist.. The set comes in 10 solid colors that are easy to pair with a slip-on sneaker or Ugg boots .

travel outfits for long flights

The soft ribbed knit of the Muse hoodie and sweatpant offers a lot of dimension to the duo. The set is lightweight enough that it can be worn over workout clothes without any bulkiness. The high-waisted joggers pair well with the cropped hoodie and offer a more chic silhouette.

travel outfits for long flights

You’ll be comfortable from head to toe with this ultra-soft pullover and pant set. The pants have a classic ‘70s wide-leg silhouette accompanied by an elastic waistband, while the pullover has a polo-inspired collar and a slightly cropped hem. An all-white set never goes out of style and will look great with a white sneaker .

travel outfits for long flights

The name tells you everything you need to know. The Coziest Cashmere Blend hoodie and jogger are ultra-soft. The fabric is warm yet breathable and the fact that it’s a blend gives you peace of mind that it won’t be ruined in the washing machine.

travel outfits for long flights

Traveler editors swear by Lunya's washable silk pajamas and cashmere Travel Set . The brand’s Silksweats complete its holy trinity of comfort. With a sherpa interior and thermoregulating abilities, you'll be comfortable without overheating in this set. Bonus: Both pieces are reversible so you can have two looks for one.

travel outfits for long flights

There's something to be said for a zip-up sweatshirt, even if they've largely been replaced by pullovers of late. For one, if your temperature flips from chilly to warm, you can regulate without bothering your seatmate while trying to take off your hoodie. We're a fan of the sweatpants, too: the deep pockets, cuffed ankles, and cashmere fabric are all plusses.

travel outfits for long flights

A new addition to OV's ultra-soft, lightweight, and durable CloudKnit line-up : this boxy T-shirt with a slightly cropped fit. It comes in charcoal, navy, mocha, fog white, and jasmine blue, all of which will match your go-to black leggings or joggers .

travel outfits for long flights

Awarded one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2020, I was eager to put on Cozy Earth's ultra-soft joggers, and am happy to report they lived up to the hype. Made of a mix of premium viscose from bamboo, acrylic, and spandex, they're smooth and cool to the touch, and have a loose but not baggy fit. I've worn them a ton on WFH days, and would happily fly in them. Snag a matching pullover if you like the matching set look.

San Francisco–based Quince launched a maternity collection, which includes a nursing-friendly long sleeve and lounge joggers with an adjustable drawstring waistband. All of the collection's pieces are made with renewable materials like Tencel lyocell, a biodegradable fiber made from wood pulp; mulberry silk, a hypoallergenic and thermoregulating fabric; the company's SuperSoft fabric, a blend of recycled polyester and tencel; and sustainably- and humanely-sourced Mongolian cashmere.

Outdoor Voices’ All Day hoodie and sweatpants set really is made to wear from dusk to dawn. It aims to be the softest pair of sweats you will ever wear, and stacks up, with a CloudKnit fabric that feels as cozy as your most worn-in pair of pajamas. The sweatpants are high-rise and more fitted toward the bottom to give the most flattering look possible, too. The pieces can be bought individually and come in six different colors, from neutral charcoal to a rich Kalamata purple.

While former Traveler editor Jessica Puckett's favorite cashmere set has since sold out, Cuyana's Pima outfit is another great option for plane travel and lounging, particularly in warmer environments, as the material is soft, smooth, and breathable.

Former Traveler editor Corina Quinn turned us on to Vuori's DreamKnit Collection hoodie and jogger set. “The DreamKnit feels like a cloud—it's so soft and cozy, yet lightweight, so you don't get too hot or too cool in them,” she says. “On top of that, because there are a few different models of jogger pants and tops, my friends and I have all found a model that's flattering for us.” For a pair of sweats that make you feel like you’re wearing a real outfit without actually doing so, Vuori’s unbelievably soft, stretchy sets are an easy pick.

Friend + Folk is a size- and gender-inclusive brand that prioritizes a limited carbon footprint, and puts it into practice by way of free carbon neutral shipping, recyclable and plastic-free packaging, limited batch-production, and more. The Joon joggers are a favorite—the fit is roomy and comfortable yet still tailored, and the zippered pockets are ideal for stashing AirPods, lip balm, and other odds and ends without worrying they'll fall out as you dash through the airport. Pair them with the Perry pullover and you've got a new airport uniform.

Lululemon may be best known for its leggings and workout wear, but don't skip over the brand's loungewear. This set is made out of a smooth Softstreme material that is stretchy and feels smooth against your skin. It's a great loungewear set to wear if you run hot.

We love this Madewell number, made of a fleece-like Superbrushed terry fabric. Wide legs and a loose fit make it just the kind of thing we want to wear on long travel days, and the patch pockets are much appreciated. Since it does have tank top-style straps, bring a cardigan or other added layer for the plane.

Some loungewear is better suited for inside wear, like this cozy ribbed shorts set. Wear the pullover, with its bell sleeves and slit in the back, over leggings for long-haul flights. The stretchy shorts have a fairly short inseam, so they'll likely be more comfortable as a sleeping short or loungewear piece to change into when you arrive at your hotel or rental house.

This two-piece set might be the closest thing to sleepwear on this list, and yet is still cute enough to feel confident while wearing through the airport. It comes in a dozen colors, from basic heather gray to bold indigo blue, and pairs slouchy, relaxed fit pants with a scoop-neck button-up henley.

Sure, all sweatpants are designed to be comfortable, but the cotton, modal, and spandex fabric Knix uses takes things up a notch. The smooth, cooling, and slightly stretchy fabric feels fantastic against skin and looks a bit more put-together than typical sweatpant material.

Most loungewear tends to follow the same cut, so we appreciate Monos, a luggage brand , shaking things up when delving into clothing. This set is as soft as any sweatpants out there, with a mid-length wide-leg pant and a short sleeve V-neck tee that's just slightly cropped.

Image may contain: Clothing, Apparel, and Pants

Anything labeled Signaturesoft nails both the rest day and flying-comfortably mood we're going for. The top and bottom have a streamlined shape and the sweatpants are tapered at the ankle. Both pieces are made of a comfortable rayon, acrylic, and spandex mix, so you’ll feel cozy while still looking put together. The sweatshirt and sweatpants can be purchased individually and come in nearly a dozen colors should you want to mix and match, and the sweatshirt passes the video-conferencing-chic test, in that it looks more like a standard sweater than workout wear.

Image may contain: Clothing, Apparel, Pajamas, Human, and Person

Not a hoodie person? You might like this cowl-neck top, which comes with cropped pants, both made of a super soft jersey and spandex fabric. Shop the set in gray, sky blue, strawberry, or buttercream, and wear it on your next overnight flight to feel like you're in pajamas.

Image may contain: Clothing, Apparel, Footwear, Shoe, Human, Person, Suit, Coat, Overcoat, Sleeve, and Long Sleeve

You may never want to put on pajamas again after wearing Softwear's Lounge Set. The fabric is buttery soft inside and out. Both the pullover and joggers are tailored and fitted with a clean silhouette—the top could pass for a normal sweater—while still being ultra soft. Plus, it’s long-lasting: The sustainable fabric is pilling-resistant and made to keep its shape after every wear.

Made for pregnant or nursing moms, this Everly Grey set is designed to fit a baby bump and make nursing easier with side openings on the top. Made of stretchy fabric with cuffed ankles and wrists and pockets on the hips, it's a loose, ever-so-slightly tailored look you'll wear again and again. Order it in one of four neutral colors: black, charcoal, oyster pink, or denim blue.

This post contains affiliate links. By using my links to shop I may receive a small commission. Thank you for your support!

When it comes to chic travel outfits, there are a few key things to keep in mind.

First and foremost, comfort is key. You want to choose pieces that are comfortable enough for a long flight or a long travel day walking through the airport.

At the same time, you want to look stylish and put-together, so it’s important to choose pieces that are both comfortable and fashionable.

Tips to styling chic airport outfits

When it comes to styling the best travel outfits, it’s important to prioritize comfort without sacrificing style. Here are a few tips to achieve a fashionable and comfortable travel look:

  • Opt for Breathable Fabrics: Choose lightweight and breathable fabrics like cotton or linen for long-haul flights or extended periods of wear.
  • Embrace Layering: Bring a lightweight blazer, leather jacket, or scarf to layer over your outfit and prepare for temperature changes during your journey.
  • Go for Versatility: Pack versatile pieces in neutral colors that can be dressed up or down, such as black leggings or a denim jacket.
  • Accessorize Smartly: Add statement pieces like sunglasses or bold necklaces to bring personality to your outfit.
  • Choose Comfortable Footwear: Opt for comfortable walking shoes like white sneakers, flat sandals, or loafers to keep your feet happy during long travel days.

By following these tips, you can create stylish and cute travel outfits that will make you feel confident and ready to explore your destination.

5 Key Travel Wardrobe Items to Add to Your Packing List

High-waisted pants.

One must have item for your travel capsule wardrobe is a pair of high-waisted pants, pair of jeans or black leggings which are great for a casual look but can be stylish as well.

You can pair these with a simple white tee or neutral tank top for a chic casual travel outfit.

Jumpsuit/Romper:

Another good idea is a jumpsuit or romper, since it is a one-piece outfit that is looks cute but you don’t have to put too much effort into it.

These are great for travel because they are easy to wear and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Rompers get bonus points from me since they are an instant outfit.

Comfortable shoes:

When it comes to footwear, comfort is once again key. You want to choose shoes that are comfortable enough to walk and stand in for long periods of time, but also stylish enough to complete your perfect travel outfit.

Sneakers are always a great option, as they are both comfortable and on-trend. On a long haul flight my feet tend to swell a little and I like that sneakers will have more give, then a more structured shoe.

Alternatively, you could opt for a pair of ankle boots or loafers for a more polished look.

If you are traveling by air, keep in mind the hassle of taking your shoes off and on at airport security.

If you travel enough the extra cost of TSA precheck is worth it, since you don’t have to remove your shoes.

Every little bit helps on long travel days.

Practical accessories:

Accessories are also important when it comes to chic travel outfits.

A scarf or wrap can add a touch of sophistication to your outfit, while also keeping you warm on the plane. Look for any lightweight fabrics so they don’t get too bulky or heavy to travel with.

A crossbody bag or backpack is also a great option, as it allows you to keep your essentials close at hand while keeping your hands free.

When I am traveling with my kids but still want to look chic and stylish I love to opt for a backpack!

This way I am hands free but also have a ton of storage space for activities and snacks for my girls as well as myself.

These anti-theft bags are a chic and practical option for travel as they keep you safe while having an overall minimal design.

This makes it easy to pair with multiple different travel outfits and still look put together.

When it comes to travel outfits, layering is a great styling tip to keep in mind.

Not only does it allow you to adjust your clothing to different temperatures, but it also adds depth and interest to your look.

Start with a base layer, such as a fitted t-shirt or tank top, and then add a lightweight sweater or cardigan.

If you’re headed to a colder climate, consider adding a jacket or coat as your outer layer.

Don’t forget to accessorize with scarves or hats for extra warmth and style.

By layering your travel outfits, you’ll be comfortable, practical, and fashionable all at once.

Flying from the Pacific Northwest, we tend to be flying from cooler weather to warm weather, so layering is a must.

Overall, the key to a chic travel outfit is to find pieces that are both comfortable and stylish.

By choosing high-waisted pants or jeans, a jumpsuit or romper, comfortable footwear, and stylish accessories, you can create a travel outfit that is both practical and fashionable.

Flared leggings are a versatile wardrobe staple as they provide comfort and flexibility, making them perfect for long haul flights or road trips.

Additionally, they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Pair them with a simple t-shirt and sneakers for a casual daytime look, or dress them up with a blouse and heels for an elegant evening outfit.

The range of colors and materials available means that flared leggings can suit a variety of personal styles and tastes.

Overall, adding a pair of flared leggings to a travel or everyday wardrobe can provide both comfort and style for any occasion.

This 3 piece set is a no brainer for a chic travel look! It gives off the monochromatic feel which is ultra trendy and just looks effortless.

Monochromatic outfits are a great option for travel because they are chic, versatile, and easy to pack.

By sticking to one color, you create a cohesive and polished look that requires minimal effort.

Monochromatic outfits also allow you to mix and match pieces, creating different outfits without having to pack a lot of clothes.

Additionally, choosing neutral colors like black, white, or beige ensures that your outfit will match any destination and occasion.

Finally, monochromatic outfits are timeless and never go out of style, making them a great investment for any traveler looking to simplify their packing and elevate their style.

I love this two piece set that could easily be paired with a crop top or graphic tee underneath.

These 7 Outfits Master Summer Airport Style

Look fresh straight off the plane with these fashion editor-approved styling hacks.

How to Pick an Airport Outfit This Summer

Lauren Tappan

My friends and I planned a week-long getaway to Costa Rica, and I've got a full packing list of trendy bikinis , airy linen pants , and breezy beach dresses , but one of the most important and often overlooked travel staples is a great summer airport outfit. Planning that outfit ahead can ensure the trip gets off to a smooth start as you get dressed in the dark for a 5 am flight. It's one less thing to think about—whether you're headed off on a fun girls' trip or headed into more serious business matters.

Heading to a vacation destination is usually a bit more forgiving than traveling for work, which can be one of the biggest wardrobe puzzles. Traveling for business often requires you to head straight off the plane into a busy day of meetings. But that doesn't mean you have to dress in stiff, uncomfortable business attire. With smart outfit formulas and a few wardrobe workhorses, you'll be equipped with several foolproof looks you can wear repeatedly— even if you're a frequent flyer.

If you're traveling through different climates, pack an extra layer—like a lightweight cardigan or a cashmere wrap—that you can easily throw over your shoulders when you arrive and will keep you from freezing on chilly planes. Going on a quick weekend trip that doesn’t require a huge checked bag? Bringing a large tote can be a great organizational hack for storing your smaller bags through crowded terminals and winding TSA lines.

From oversized blazers paired with T-shirts and sleek leggings to matching sweat sets styled with summer's trending chunky sneakers , Marie Claire's curated seven do-it-all airport outfits that have street-style and celebrity seals of approval.

  • Lightweight Layers

Although you're bound to experience balmy weather during a day of summer travel, you'll likely encounter chilly temperatures as soon as you step foot in the airport (and even more so while seated in the aircraft cabin). That's why it's essential to pack a lightweight layering piece like a knit cardigan , a fleece hoodie , or a soft crewneck sweatshirt.

  • Comfortable Fabrics

Between navigating airport security, speeding through terminals, and tracking down your luggage at baggage claim, a travel day usually means getting your steps in. That said, you'll want to wear comfortable fabrics (especially on the bottom) that will allow you to get around easily. Soft leggings, cotton sweatpants , and linen trousers are all great options to incorporate into your summer airport outfit formula.

  • Supportive Footwear

The airport is not the place to experiment with pointy stilettos or sky-high platforms (if you must wear heels, pack them in your carry-on bag and slip them on as soon as you land). Instead, choose cushioned sneakers, sandals with arch support, and supportive flats— ballet flats are a great option that checks all of the boxes.

The Best Summer Airport Outfit Formulas

For the long-haul flight.

When it comes to the products Marie Claire recommends, we take your faith in us seriously. Every product that we feature comes recommended by a MC writer or editor, or by an expert we've spoken to. Learn more about how we review products.

Prioritize comfort while wearing a cozy T-shirt and a pair of stretchy leggings.

The most versatile summer airport outfit involves two simple essentials: a T-shirt and a pair of leggings . I've worn this look time and again to get through long travel days, and it never fails. Whether sprinting to catch my plane or moving around an aircraft during a long-haul flight, I can always rely on a fitted tee and a pair of forgiving pants to provide easy mobility— and to sleep in if I need to. Elevate this look by wrapping a cardigan across your shoulders, popping on a pair of chunky hoops , and grabbing a large carry-on that's roomy enough to store all the in-flight essentials.

Cotton Rib T-Shirt

When You're Short on Time

There's something about a matching sweat set that feels super polished, especially when styled with chic black accessories.

A comfortable sweatsuit can do no wrong, especially on days when you don't have much time to plan your airport look. A monochromatic approach keeps the look polished and won't require much extra styling. Anchor a light neutral matching set with contrasting black accessories, like a versatile crossbody bag and a pair of sleek sunglasses. Pro Tip: Wear a tank top beneath your hoodie in case you need to shed a layer.

Accolade Hoodie

Straight From the Plane to Meetings

For the business traveler who must look chic at all times, you'll appreciate this outfit.

Traveling for work instead of leisure? If so, your post-flight day will likely be packed with client coffees or business lunches; unfortunately, sweatpants and leggings won't cut it. You'll want more of the Nicole Kidman airport outfit approach. Count on a pair of tailored trousers , a fitted middle layer, and an outer sweater to look polished but not stuffy. Pair the look with pointed-toe flats and ladylike accessories— like pearl earrings.

The Favorite Pant Pleated Wide Leg Pants

For the Weekend Trip

Graphic T-shirts are undeniably fun. Wear yours to the airport with a pair of flowy pants to match.

A playful design, like a graphic tee, can add an element of fun to any pared-down airport outfit. Play with proportion with a loose-fitting T-shirt and a flowy pair of pants that feel relaxed but capture your personal style— you can also re-wear these pieces for a short weekend trip. Pack a sweater or light denim jacket in your carry-on or weekend bag to have you have an extra layer for the plane.

New York Tee

From Landing Straight to Lunch

Wearing jeans to the airport feels like a cardinal sin, but it doesn't have to be.

Okay, I know what you’re thinking: Who wears jeans on an airplane? Yes, you can easily incorporate denim into your summer airport outfit—just opt for an oversized or relaxed silhouette. Pair the look with an oversized sweatshirt and easy slip-on slide sandals. Head straight to lunch with your friends— no change necessary.

Classic Crew Sweatshirt

A Fuss-Free Sightseeing Look

A simple yet chic look will easily take you from the airport to the streets of your destination.

If you've got a bunch of sightseeing lined up on your itinerary as soon as you land, your outfit will have to master versatility–comfy enough to wear on the plane yet stylish enough for a day of strolling through museums, restaurants, and promenades. A black tank top, a pair of lightweight pants, and white sneakers will get the job done. Opt for a leather backpack to keep your hands free.

Naomi Tank Top

From Warm to Cold Climates (Or Vice Versa)

woman wearing rain coat, white pants, and flats

A chilly destination calls for layers.

Not all summer vacations are tropical. In fact, some of us are opting for chilly destinations to escape grueling temperatures. For this type of trip, the right outerwear is absolutely key. A sturdy trench coat is a great choice to provide warmth without taking up space on the plane. If you're traveling from a warm to cold climate, style your trench with an all-white outfit and neutral accessories.

A GLOBETROTTING TV host has revealed his top travelling tips, including the best plane seat to book for long flights

Dr Musa Mthombeni, who is set to jet to Turkey and Thailand for a radiologist conference in Chiang Mai in the near future, is no stranger to travel, along with his former Miss South Africa wife Liesl Laurie.

Dr Musa Mthombeni with his wife  Liesl Laurie in Paris

He advised travellers should check in as early as possible so you can pick the seat you wanted.

He told IOL : “If you know that your bladder is small, preferably pick an aisle seat so that can jump out without bothering too many people.

“I can usually sit for many hours without having to move.

“I am a lover of movies and series, so in-flight entertainment excites me and keeps me entertained for the long flight.”

Dr Mthombeni also advised what people should wear.

He said: “As you get ready, pick the most comfortable outfit, put on the most comfortable shoes, and pack your carry-on with essentials for a pleasant flight experience.”

And inside his carry-on bag he takes his laptop or an iPad and headphones and what he describes as “basic goodies” which include face wash and moisturiser and sunscreen as well.

He also recommended taking your own toothbrush and toothpaste.

Travel + Leisure / Reese Herrington

As someone who is always on the move, a versatile wardrobe is key for seamless travel. I need garments that can be worn in a variety of different ways and environments, providing functionality beyond just having a pair of pants that I just wear to the gym. That’s precisely why I love matching two-piece sets so much — particularly athleisure sets. I don't want my workout attire to be limited to just performance; I need it to provide support and comfort throughout my entire day, and, of course, have the style points to make it look like intentional, well-thought-out outfits. 

Unbeknownst to most, Amazon is bursting with comfortable and affordable athleisure matching sets that are perfectly suited for busy individuals like you and me. I’ve taken the liberty to curate a list of my 10 favorite ones for travel, going to the gym, taking in the sights of a new city, and virtually anything else. Complete with a five-piece athletic set that’s just $45 and possibly the loungewear set of my dreams , these picks are easy to style and serve as hassle-free, one-and-done outfit options. What's even more exciting is that they're all under $50, so keep reading to stock up on these stellar travel outfits ahead of your next trip. 

Darong Women’s Lounge Two-piece Set

Although this lounge set may have just hit Amazon's virtual shelves , it's already received high praise from shoppers for its “soft and buttery” feel and “comfortable and stretchy" fit. I’m a comfort queen, so as you can imagine, I placed an order for one as soon as I saw it drop. I can’t wait to wear it for all of my low-impact workouts (think: Pilates and walking) and to the airport. Plus, each of the pieces in this set are super versatile, which means that you can wear the T-shirt with your favorite bottoms and the super-soft pants to bed, for running errands, and beyond. 

July’s Song Women’s Five-piece Athletic Set

There are plenty of excellent, top-rated choices in this round-up, but few are as good of a deal as this athletic set that comes with a sports bra, T-shirt, hoodie, leggings, and a pair of spandex shorts for a mere $45 (thanks to an on-site coupon that you need to clip before checkout). It's functional, comfortable, and grants you countless mixing-and-matching capabilities. Wear the hoodie and the leggings on the trails or the shorts and T-shirt to the hotel pool — with this set, the world is yours. 

Zesica Women’s Two-piece Lounge Set

The best athleisure sets are made with materials that move with you, not against you, and this duo has exactly that with its soft and flexible polyester-spandex blend. Beyond the gym, the simple jogger pants and cropped sweater combination lends itself well to an array of environments. Available in 19 different colors, there’s a shade (or two) for everyone, but if I were you, I’d go ahead and choose one sooner than later because it's on sale for just $35 this weekend. 

Glamaker Women’s Oversized Bike Shorts T-shirt Set

Considering how many pairs of spandex shorts that I have in my closet, I may as well be the president of the bike short fan club. They’re longer and more compressive than my running shorts, which means that I feel comfortable wearing them out in public, yet still short enough to keep me from overheating compared to a full-length pair of leggings. If you don’t already have a pair in your collection, consider shopping for this set that comes with a pair of bike shorts (that go just above your knee) and a breathable T-shirt that can be worn with or without them. It's the do-it-all athleisure set that doubles as a cute outfit for a laidback travel day. 

ToBeInStyle Women’s Velour Tracksuit 

Between its luxurious velvet feel and style that's reminiscent of the early 2000s, this velour tracksuit may just be the travel outfit of my dreams. Aside from its very obvious aesthetically pleasing look, it's “ great for traveling ," according to shoppers — especially "on planes [because the] fabric is not too heavy yet comfortable and functional.” And as an extra treat, it’ll only set you back $36. 

Coofandy Men’s Sweatsuit 

Amazon also has plenty of two-piece travel outfits for men as well, starting with this on-sale duo from Coofandy. Complete with a cozy zip-up hoodie and a pair of extra-soft sweatpants, it's the exact type of outfit that you want in your wardrobe if you prioritize comfort as much as I do. It's also made with a lightweight, breathable material, so although it’ll keep you warm, you can easily add or remove layers depending on the temperature of your destination or the plane cabin thermostat. 

Uni Clau Men’s Short Tracksuit

If you have your eyes set on something that can accommodate the warm weather a bit more, then this short-sleeve and shorts set is for you. It's made with a cotton-spandex-polyester blend that’s equally excellent for gym sessions, long travel days, and outdoor adventures. I also audibly laughed when I read this review appreciating that its matching look is “easy to wear, coordinated for those clothing challenged, and great for travel.”

Pinksavior Women’s Workout Set

When I read that one shopper urged other customers to “run to buy this” matching workout set, I knew that I had found a winner. That same reviewer went on to gush over its comfortable and stretchy yet secure fit, adding that they’re already planning on buying it in a few more colors. So, follow their lead and add a set (or two) to your cart especially while it's on sale for $27. 

Lingswallow Two-piece Shorts Lounge Set

If you really want to stretch your wardrobe, then you should add this matching shorts and tank set to your cart while it's $27 thanks to an on-site coupon). Hear me out, everyone needs a go-to pair of shorts for lounging around the house or outside in the summertime, and a racerback tank is a capsule wardrobe must that can be layered or worn as is.

Nova Active Women’s Athletic Set

One of my favorite, go-to travel outfits is a pair of comfy leggings, a well-fitted sports bra, and a relaxed hoodie. This particular set includes a majority of my airport outfit staples, and according to shoppers, it surpasses even pricier activewear options in terms of performance and comfort. Available in eight different colors — ranging from eye-catching green to neutral nudes —  you really can’t beat this deal.

Travel Itinerary For One Week in Moscow: The Best of Moscow!

I just got back from one week in Moscow. And, as you might have already guessed, it was a mind-boggling experience. It was not my first trip to the Russian capital. But I hardly ever got enough time to explore this sprawling city. Visiting places for business rarely leaves enough time for sightseeing. I think that if you’ve got one week in Russia, you can also consider splitting your time between its largest cities (i.e. Saint Petersburg ) to get the most out of your trip. Seven days will let you see the majority of the main sights and go beyond just scratching the surface. In this post, I’m going to share with you my idea of the perfect travel itinerary for one week in Moscow.

Moscow is perhaps both the business and cultural hub of Russia. There is a lot more to see here than just the Kremlin and Saint Basil’s Cathedral. Centuries-old churches with onion-shaped domes dotted around the city are in stark contrast with newly completed impressive skyscrapers of Moscow City dominating the skyline. I spent a lot of time thinking about my Moscow itinerary before I left. And this city lived up to all of my expectations.

7-day Moscow itinerary

Travel Itinerary For One Week in Moscow

Day 1 – red square and the kremlin.

Metro Station: Okhotny Ryad on Red Line.

No trip to Moscow would be complete without seeing its main attraction. The Red Square is just a stone’s throw away from several metro stations. It is home to some of the most impressive architectural masterpieces in the city. The first thing you’ll probably notice after entering it and passing vendors selling weird fur hats is the fairytale-like looking Saint Basil’s Cathedral. It was built to commemorate one of the major victories of Ivan the Terrible. I once spent 20 minutes gazing at it, trying to find the perfect angle to snap it. It was easier said than done because of the hordes of locals and tourists.

As you continue strolling around Red Square, there’s no way you can miss Gum. It was widely known as the main department store during the Soviet Era. Now this large (yet historic) shopping mall is filled with expensive boutiques, pricey eateries, etc. During my trip to Moscow, I was on a tight budget. So I only took a retro-style stroll in Gum to get a rare glimpse of a place where Soviet leaders used to grocery shop and buy their stuff. In case you want some modern shopping experience, head to the Okhotny Ryad Shopping Center with stores like New Yorker, Zara, and Adidas.

To continue this Moscow itinerary, next you may want to go inside the Kremlin walls. This is the center of Russian political power and the president’s official residence. If you’re planning to pay Kremlin a visit do your best to visit Ivan the Great Bell Tower as well. Go there as early as possible to avoid crowds and get an incredible bird’s-eye view. There are a couple of museums that are available during designated visiting hours. Make sure to book your ticket online and avoid lines.

Day 2 – Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the Tretyakov Gallery, and the Arbat Street

Metro Station: Kropotkinskaya on Red Line

As soon as you start creating a Moscow itinerary for your second day, you’ll discover that there are plenty of metro stations that are much closer to certain sites. Depending on your route, take a closer look at the metro map to pick the closest.

The white marble walls of Christ the Saviour Cathedral are awe-inspiring. As you approach this tallest Orthodox Christian church, you may notice the bronze sculptures, magnificent arches, and cupolas that were created to commemorate Russia’s victory against Napoleon.

Unfortunately, the current Cathedral is a replica, since original was blown to bits in 1931 by the Soviet government. The new cathedral basically follows the original design, but they have added some new elements such as marble high reliefs.

Home to some precious collection of artworks, in Tretyakov Gallery you can find more than 150,000 of works spanning centuries of artistic endeavor. Originally a privately owned gallery, it now has become one of the largest museums in Russia. The Gallery is often considered essential to visit. But I have encountered a lot of locals who have never been there.

Famous for its souvenirs, musicians, and theaters, Arbat street is among the few in Moscow that were turned into pedestrian zones. Arbat street is usually very busy with tourists and locals alike. My local friend once called it the oldest street in Moscow dating back to 1493. It is a kilometer long walking street filled with fancy gift shops, small cozy restaurants, lots of cute cafes, and street artists. It is closed to any vehicular traffic, so you can easily stroll it with kids.

Day 3 – Moscow River Boat Ride, Poklonnaya Hill Victory Park, the Moscow City

Metro Station: Kievskaya and Park Pobedy on Dark Blue Line / Vystavochnaya on Light Blue Line

Voyaging along the Moscow River is definitely one of the best ways to catch a glimpse of the city and see the attractions from a bit different perspective. Depending on your Moscow itinerary, travel budget and the time of the year, there are various types of boats available. In the summer there is no shortage of boats, and you’ll be spoiled for choice.

exploring Moscow

Travel Itinerary for One Week in Beijing

If you find yourself in Moscow during the winter months, I’d recommend going with Radisson boat cruise. These are often more expensive (yet comfy). They offer refreshments like tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and, of course, alcoholic drinks. Prices may vary but mostly depend on your food and drink selection. Find their main pier near the opulent Ukraine hotel . The hotel is one of the “Seven Sisters”, so if you’re into the charm of Stalinist architecture don’t miss a chance to stay there.

The area near Poklonnaya Hill has the closest relation to the country’s recent past. The memorial complex was completed in the mid-1990s to commemorate the Victory and WW2 casualties. Also known as the Great Patriotic War Museum, activities here include indoor attractions while the grounds around host an open-air museum with old tanks and other vehicles used on the battlefield.

How I Planned My Trip to Vietnam

The hallmark of the memorial complex and the first thing you see as you exit metro is the statue of Nike mounted to its column. This is a very impressive Obelisk with a statue of Saint George slaying the dragon at its base.

Maybe not as impressive as Shanghai’s Oriental Pearl Tower , the skyscrapers of the Moscow City (otherwise known as Moscow International Business Center) are so drastically different from dull Soviet architecture. With 239 meters and 60 floors, the Empire Tower is the seventh highest building in the business district.

The observation deck occupies 56 floor from where you have some panoramic views of the city. I loved the view in the direction of Moscow State University and Luzhniki stadium as well to the other side with residential quarters. The entrance fee is pricey, but if you’re want to get a bird’s eye view, the skyscraper is one of the best places for doing just that.

Day 4 – VDNKh, Worker and Collective Farm Woman Monument, The Ostankino TV Tower

Metro Station: VDNKh on Orange Line

VDNKh is one of my favorite attractions in Moscow. The weird abbreviation actually stands for Russian vystavka dostizheniy narodnogo khozyaystva (Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy). With more than 200 buildings and 30 pavilions on the grounds, VDNKh serves as an open-air museum. You can easily spend a full day here since the park occupies a very large area.

Moscow sights

Places to Visit in Barcelona That Aren’t Beaches

First, there are pavilions that used to showcase different cultures the USSR was made of. Additionally, there is a number of shopping pavilions, as well as Moskvarium (an Oceanarium) that features a variety of marine species. VDNKh is a popular venue for events and fairs. There is always something going on, so I’d recommend checking their website if you want to see some particular exhibition.

A stone’s throw away from VDNKh there is a very distinctive 25-meters high monument. Originally built in 1937 for the world fair in Paris, the hulking figures of men and women holding a hammer and a sickle represent the Soviet idea of united workers and farmers. It doesn’t take much time to see the monument, but visiting it gives some idea of the Soviet Union’s grandiose aspirations.

I have a thing for tall buildings. So to continue my travel itinerary for one week in Moscow I decided to climb the fourth highest TV tower in the world. This iconic 540m tower is a fixture of the skyline. You can see it virtually from everywhere in Moscow, and this is where you can get the best panoramic views (yep, even better than Empire skyscraper).

top things to do in Moscow

Parts of the floor are made of tempered glass, so it can be quite scary to exit the elevator. But trust me, as you start observing buildings and cars below, you won’t want to leave. There is only a limited number of tickets per day, so you may want to book online. Insider tip: the first tour is cheaper, you can save up to $10 if go there early.

Day 5 – A Tour To Moscow Manor Houses

Metro Station: Kolomenskoye, Tsaritsyno on Dark Green Line / Kuskovo on Purple Line

I love visiting the manor houses and palaces in Moscow. These opulent buildings were generally built to house Russian aristocratic families and monarchs. Houses tend to be rather grand affairs with impressive architecture. And, depending on the whims of the owners, some form of a landscaped garden.

During the early part of the 20th century though, many of Russia’s aristocratic families (including the family of the last emperor) ended up being killed or moving abroad . Their manor houses were nationalized. Some time later (after the fall of the USSR) these were open to the public. It means that today a great many of Moscow’s finest manor houses and palaces are open for touring.

one week Moscow itinerary

20 Travel Tips I’ve Learned From Travelling The World

There are 20 manor houses scattered throughout the city and more than 25 in the area around. But not all of them easily accessible and exploring them often takes a lot of time. I’d recommend focusing on three most popular estates in Moscow that are some 30-minute metro ride away from Kremlin.

Sandwiched between the Moscow River and the Andropov Avenue, Kolomenskoye is a UNESCO site that became a public park in the 1920’s. Once a former royal estate, now it is one of the most tranquil parks in the city with gorgeous views. The Ascension Church, The White Column, and the grounds are a truly grand place to visit.

You could easily spend a full day here, exploring a traditional Russian village (that is, in fact, a market), picnicking by the river, enjoying the Eastern Orthodox church architecture, hiking the grounds as well as and wandering the park and gardens with wildflower meadows, apple orchards, and birch and maple groves. The estate museum showcases Russian nature at its finest year-round.

If my travel itinerary for one week in Moscow was a family tree, Tsaritsyno Park would probably be the crazy uncle that no-one talks about. It’s a large park in the south of the city of mind-boggling proportions, unbelievable in so many ways, and yet most travelers have never heard of it.

The palace was supposed to be a summer home for Empress Catherine the Great. But since the construction didn’t meet with her approval the palace was abandoned. Since the early 1990’s the palace, the pond, and the grounds have been undergoing renovations. The entire complex is now looking brighter and more elaborately decorated than at possibly any other time during its history. Like most parks in Moscow, you can visit Tsaritsyno free of charge, but there is a small fee if you want to visit the palace.

Moscow itinerary

How To Stop Procrastinating When Trip Planning

Last, but by no means least on my Moscow itinerary is Kuskovo Park . This is definitely an off-the-beaten-path place. While it is not easily accessible, you will be rewarded with a lack of crowds. This 18th-century summer country house of the Sheremetev family was one of the first summer country estates of the Russian nobility. And when you visit you’ll quickly realize why locals love this park.

Like many other estates, Kuskovo has just been renovated. So there are lovely French formal garden, a grotto, and the Dutch house to explore. Make sure to plan your itinerary well because the estate is some way from a metro station.

Day 6 – Explore the Golden Ring

Creating the Moscow itinerary may keep you busy for days with the seemingly endless amount of things to do. Visiting the so-called Golden Ring is like stepping back in time. Golden Ring is a “theme route” devised by promotion-minded journalist and writer Yuri Bychkov.

Having started in Moscow the route will take you through a number of historical cities. It now includes Suzdal, Vladimir, Kostroma, Yaroslavl and Sergiev Posad. All these awe-inspiring towns have their own smaller kremlins and feature dramatic churches with onion-shaped domes, tranquil residential areas, and other architectural landmarks.

Two Weeks In Thailand: The Perfect 14-Day Itinerary

I only visited two out of eight cities included on the route. It is a no-brainer that Sergiev Posad is the nearest and the easiest city to see on a day trip from Moscow. That being said, you can explore its main attractions in just one day. Located some 70 km north-east of the Russian capital, this tiny and overlooked town is home to Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius, UNESCO Site.

things to do in Moscow in seven days

Sergiev Posad is often described as being at the heart of Russian spiritual life. So it is uncommon to see the crowds of Russian pilgrims showing a deep reverence for their religion. If you’re traveling independently and using public transport, you can reach Sergiev Posad by bus (departs from VDNKh) or by suburban commuter train from Yaroslavskaya Railway Station (Bahnhof). It takes about one and a half hours to reach the town.

Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius is a great place to get a glimpse of filling and warming Russian lunch, specifically at the “ Gostevaya Izba ” restaurant. Try the duck breast, hearty potato and vegetables, and the awesome Napoleon cake.

Day 7 – Gorky Park, Izmailovo Kremlin, Patriarch’s Ponds

Metro Station: Park Kultury or Oktyabrskaya on Circle Line / Partizanskaya on Dark Blue Line / Pushkinskaya on Dark Green Line

Gorky Park is in the heart of Moscow. It offers many different types of outdoor activities, such as dancing, cycling, skateboarding, walking, jogging, and anything else you can do in a park. Named after Maxim Gorky, this sprawling and lovely park is where locals go on a picnic, relax and enjoy free yoga classes. It’s a popular place to bike around, and there is a Muzeon Art Park not far from here. A dynamic location with a younger vibe. There is also a pier, so you can take a cruise along the river too.

How to Save Money While Traveling in Europe

The Kremlin in Izmailovo is by no means like the one you can find near the Red Square. Originally built for decorative purposes, it now features the Vernissage flea market and a number of frequent fairs, exhibitions, and conferences. Every weekend, there’s a giant flea market in Izmailovo, where dozens of stalls sell Soviet propaganda crap, Russian nesting dolls, vinyl records, jewelry and just about any object you can imagine. Go early in the morning if you want to beat the crowds.

All the Bulgakov’s fans should pay a visit to Patriarch’s Ponds (yup, that is plural). With a lovely small city park and the only one (!) pond in the middle, the location is where the opening scene of Bulgakov’s novel Master and Margarita was set. The novel is centered around a visit by Devil to the atheistic Soviet Union is considered by many critics to be one of the best novels of the 20th century. I spent great two hours strolling the nearby streets and having lunch in the hipster cafe.

Conclusion and Recommendations

To conclude, Moscow is a safe city to visit. I have never had a problem with getting around and most locals are really friendly once they know you’re a foreigner. Moscow has undergone some serious reconstruction over the last few years. So you can expect some places to be completely different. I hope my one week Moscow itinerary was helpful! If you have less time, say 4 days or 5 days, I would cut out day 6 and day 7. You could save the Golden Ring for a separate trip entirely as there’s lots to see!
