What to Wear for Every Kind of Flight

Whether you’re hopping a short domestic flight the length of an LA commute or taking a red-eye halfway around the world, the key is to opt for an outfit with function and thought behind each piece. The three looks below will serve you well before, during, and after.

QUICK JAUNT

A short-and-sweet flight like the one between LA and SF often requires pieces that can go from airport to lunch and ones that are versatile enough to accommodate two climates. The right jeans—not too restrictive around the waist or too slim in the leg—paired with a cashmere crewneck is the easiest way to go.

CROSS-COUNTRY

For a flight that’s long enough to watch a movie (or two), comfortable separates in neutral tones—black and white are our go-tos—look and feel effortless. Birkenstock clogs are both chic and easy to slip off at security; a tote is the ultimate carry-on and schlep-everything solution once you’ve touched down.

You could be on a long but happy slog to a dream destination or on an overnighter for a work trip; in either scenario, comfort is key. Soft, breathable pieces—tees, knits, cashmere socks—are the smart move. So are noise-canceling earbuds. Pro tip: Keep a couple of Knock Me Out chews handy so you can drift off as you lift off.
