Fly High in Style

In Fashion, Trends on July 29, 2009 at 11:39 am

Recently, I went to visit family in Tennessee. I absolutely love flying, but as a self-proclaimed fashionista, choosing the right outfit to wear on the plane is a daunting task. After spending about the same amount of time picking out a suitable plane outfit as I did packing, my bedroom looks like a tornado disaster story straight out of a National Geographic! If you’re a seasoned traveler, you know suitable plane apparel has to be comfortable, wrinkle resistant, warm and cool (at the same time), security friendly and practical all in one coordinated, stylish outfit. I’ve put together some stylish options to keep in mind next time you’re planning a little get-away.

Seat Smart

Sitting for an extended period of time can be quite uncomfortable without comfy pants. Throw on your favorite pair of jeans or one of these alternatives.

Warm Fuzzies

If you’re like me and get cold easily, these are great cover-up options that won’t force you to sacrifice warmth for frumpiness.

Well-Heeled

I love high heels, but sometimes they aren’t practical when there are mountains of suitcases to haul. Even the most skilled heel walkers can be prone to accidents worthy of America’s Funniest Home Videos. These slip-ons are comfortable and unproblematic at the security checkpoint.

Security Proof Accessories

While having a great outfit does wonders, it’s the accessories and bling that can spice up any outfit. Choosing the right accessories are crucial. As any traveler can tell you, your accessories might be the difference between waiting 5 minutes or 15 minutes to pass through security. Here are some great ideas to avoid beeping and having to practically strip down at security.
