Are those sweatpants? I would personally not wear those for business travel – especially to Europe. In my business travel experience, Americans are the only ones who wear sweats to travel – in fact, a few of my European friends have commented on it.

Why not wear a loose pair of dress pants, or an aline skirt? Nicer maxi skirts can also be dressed up.

For the top, I would look for something a little nicer – again, the “sweats” material is too casual for anything business related (even flights), IMO.

Also, whenever I travel internationally, I always bring a second “travel” outfit to change into on the plane. This is especially nice on overnight flights – bring body wipes and a change of clothes, and after you wake up in the morning, you can do a sink bath and change in the lavatory.

My best travel wear is a patagonia dress http://www.patagonia.com/ca/product/patagonia-womens-bandha-dress?p=58729-0-889.

If I were flying internationaly I would pair it with a set of tights and a cute sweater to keep warm (I freeze on international flights). If its a short local hope pair it with a cute shoe and a parshmina.

This is on the casual side however depending on what you usualy wear to work. Its very comfortable however with a great technical fabric and does not wrinkle up when packed in a suitcase.

I’ve got these Gap Perfect trouser pants and they are super comfortable and don’t wrinkle too badly.

Also, I second the skirt idea, and as long as it’s a long skirt, you won’t have to worry about being uncomfortable/fidgeting all the time.  A long lightly pleated skirt would hide wrinkles, be professional, and tights will keep you warm.

A wrap dress that hits below the knee with tights would also be a good option.
