Modern girls-on-the-go need outfits for every occasion—whether they are attending a cocktail party, interviewing for a glamorous new job, or jet-setting around the world—which is where our Style Spy story comes in. In today’s installment, we are putting the spotlight on four of our favorite tastemakers and the stylish ensembles they wear while flying. Now, eagle-eyed fashion fans will notice a few key trends—chunky sweaters, no-fuss pants, uncomplicated footwear, and, of course, dark eyewear. With these key elements in mind, we’re ready to delve into flying style and provide you with all the inspiration you need! Read on!
Layering is a key component when it comes to creating an in-flight ensemble, as airplane temperatures are, put simply, unpredictable. Accordingly, we recommend taking layering tips from actress Rachel Bilson, who flew into LAX in February wearing a lightweight sweater, a chunky Chanel scarf, black leggings, and ankle boots. If you love this look, try pairing J Crew’s Merino Stripe Sweater ($78) with Black Orchid’s Black Jewel Five Pocket Jeggings ($100). To finish, accessorize with All Saints’s Como Scarf ($115) and Nine West’s Drina Boots ($62.60).
As experienced jet-setters will know, a fuss-free flight is essential, which is why we love the minimalist look actress Kirsten Dunst put together for a recent flight out of London. Kirsten’s ensemble is certainly chic, but also uncomplicated—she won’t be bothered with straps, buckles, or zippers! If you’re ready to try this low key look, pick up ASOS’s Pleated Swing Coat ($62.76) and layer it over a tee and jeans. Then, grab a great carry-on bag like Topshop’s Plaited Handle Holdall ($76) and you’re ready for take off!
Putting together a comfortable ensemble doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your personal style, as evidenced by actress Kate Bosworth, who flew into LAX in March wearing a chunky sweater, skinny jeans, and biker boots. The best part? Kate’s outfit doesn’t just look effortless—it actually is effortless, which means it is perfect for the modern jet-setter! Take a page out of Kate’s style book by picking up BDG’s Slouchy Cable Knit Sweater ($69) and pairing it with Blank Denim’s Ankle Skinny Jeans ($71) and Madewell’s Buckled Biker Boots ($129.99).
If you like to plan ahead, it is worth considering the weather at your destination. For example, when model Gisele Bundchen jetted into Rio de Janeiro in March, she put together an ensemble that was relaxed and chic, obviously, but also appropriate for the balmy Rio weather. So, if you are planning an exotic vacation this year, make sure you put together a similarly stylish look by grabbing Love Sam’s Oversized Shirt ($99.99) and pairing it with MiH’s Paris Mid Rise Skinny Jeans ($130.90) and Lauren Ralph Lauren’s Astrid Sandals ($69).
