There's something to be said about the woman who still dresses to the nines at the airport; she's elegant, she's evolved, and she respects the glamour of travel — but doesn't she also limp the entire half-mile trek to the end of the terminal? If your clothes prevent you from getting past security swiftly, booking it to your gate, and sitting comfortably for your three- or 13-hour flight, it's time to reassess. You can still exercise a little dressing-effort without sporting a Sunday hangover look out in public, and we have the 18 style solutions ahead to prove it.
There's an entire wardrobe world out there that exists between pajamas and formalwear — with plenty of clothes that not only help you get snuggly in your seat but also make transitional sense when the wheels touch down. So, in anticipation of all your warm-weather wandering, we put together an outfit manual for in-flight and beyond to reference before you book that Uber to the airport.
