Airplane Lewk

How to travel in both comfort and style? This is an age old question that brings many women much grief. The idea that something comfortable can also be chic is lost on a lot of people, but I'm here to tell you that the two are not mutually exclusive.

There's nothing I hate more than seeing people in their pajamas at airports. Traveling by air does not give you a free pass to look unacceptable in public, sorry not sorry. Surely you don't need to be at a sleepwear level of comfortable.

With that said, you do need to keep a few things in mind that pertain to comfort when flying, such as how long your flight is, what it is you have planned upon landing, as well as the weather at both your departure and arrival locations. My personal trick? The same one I use for everything: layers, layers, layers.

For example, the outfit in these photos: I'm wearing a lightweight long sleeve cotton turtleneck under a denim button down with a super versatile leather jacket to cap things off. That meant that I would be warm enough in NYC when leaving, and I could shed a layer in a hot second should it have been a little warmer where I was headed, Los Angeles.

I strategically chose these jeans for their looseness, softness, and comfort, yet cool and chic aesthetic. I wore these boots because they're too bulky and heavy to put in my suitcase, but they're my favorite so I had to bring them.

See, no need for leggings, joggers, or worse, pj pants. Think about all of the above and put together a look of normal daytime clothes instead of loungewear the next time you're headed for the airport.
