I have a flight to San Diego tomorrow afternoon. I do a ~1 hr hop to Wash, DC first then 5+ hours to SD. So, I want to be comfortable when I settle in for the 5 hour flight. But, I also don’t want to look like a schlump. (Esp. since this is for an educational conference, not vacation).
Here’s what I am going to wear (sort of- not the exact items). What are your thoughts on traveling fashions? Comfort over everything else? Bring back the glamour of flight?

I travel professionally when I travel for work. It’s not about being glamorous, it’s about looking professional. I don’t want to bump into anybody in my yoga pants, ya know? A scarf is always good–i usually end up bundling it up under my head =]

I usually wear leggings and a loose top or a knit dress when I travel, with a cardigan, slip-on flats and a big scarf.

mr. sew always makes me wear good shoes when on airplanes (or trains or buses or whatever) in case I should ever need to run/walk/climb somewhere quickly..tennis shoes aren’t so fashionable though 🙂

That outfit is adorable! Love the easy to take off shoes! I always have to go sit on a bench to retie my sneakers. I usually wear jeans since those are what I’m most comfortable in.

Good question!! I am leaving on Wednesday for Los Angeles. It’s a fun trip, not business, but I do try to dress semi-casual but nice. Usually black skinny jeans/pants (non-wrinkle cotton type material for comfort), flat boots, a fitted top with a cardigan and a big scarf.

I tend to wear jeans, a loose tank, a comfy cardigan, and ballet flats. Usually I bring a jacket in my carry-on even if it’s not cold, just to use as a pillow.

As long as no one is wearing their sweats, slippres, and carrying a pillow – i see people [adults!] doing that in airports and wonder WTH? I don’t go to the store in my pajamas, why would I board a plane that way? I usually wear jeans that won’t be uncomfortable, boots/flats/sandals (ez to remove), a breezy top and a cardigan and a large tote. Something I would not be embarrassed to wear if the plane got delayed or something, but that is also comfortable.

Yes, the scarf and slip-on shoes are key! I also always have socks in my carry-on if I’m not already wearing them. The temps on planes can vary so much!
@sewing- that’s why I wear my crocs flats. They’re super comfortable and supportive, but can slip on and off and weigh practically nothing!

I make sure to wear comfortable shoes that are easy to take off. Never know how far of a walk your gate will be…and slip on shoes are great since you will have to take them off for security. Probably want to wear socks so you don’t have to stand on the groddy floor.
Scarf is great incase the plane is cold. Looks like a good outfit to me!

Comfortable, but appropriate clothes/shoes for your conference. When I travel for work, I wear comfortable heels (since I don’t own any flats – sad I know), slacks and comfortable business casual shirt (usually a turtleneck as its usually cold on planes and they don’t provide blankets anymore!). Or I layer and wear a cute comfy shirt and bring a long a cardigan.

make that quadruplets to dana lady and chrissy – leggings with loose top, or knit dress with flats and a scarf. Looks polished but comfortable. I never swear sweats on a flight
