If you are one of the lucky few heading off on vacation this summer, we know you have plenty to think about—from what you should pack to what you should wear. Happily, our latest Style Spy story is here to help you with one conundrum: deciding what you should wear when flying to your chosen destination. Even better, we are looking to four very well-traveled stars for inspiration—including Nicole Richie and Kirsten Dunst. So what are you waiting for? Click inside to discover the key elements you should keep in mind when flying high this summer!
Who are we looking to for inspiration?
The four stars we have picked for today’s story—Nicole Richie, Kirsten Dunst, Chloe Moretz, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—are each seasoned travelers, so it is safe to say that they know a thing or two about what to wear while flying. Nicole knows the importance of wearing dark sunglasses, while Kirsten always manages to look cool and comfortable. Chloe always ensures she is wearing sensible shoes. As for Rosie, she opts for luxurious basics—definitely a winning strategy!
How are they styling their in-flight outfits?
There are several common elements in the outfits of our four muses today, so we will work from down from top to bottom. Now, it is no secret that flying can wreak havoc on your skin and hair, so when disembarking, a pair of dark sunglasses is a must. They instantly cover up any dark circles under your eyes, plus they give your outfit a chic boost. If you want to take it that extra step, you can also do as Rosie has done and add a felt hat. This will help conceal a bad hair day. On your upper half, we suggest you opt for a simple yet stylish top—Kirsten’s pajama-style top is particularly spot-on. Another necessity is a cozy scarf a la Nicole or a wraparound cardigan like Rosie’s. These will help keep you warm when the cabin temperature drops. On your bottom half, we always recommend a pair of skinny jeans or pants. In particular, you should pick something that is comfortable and easy to move around in—no one needs to be weighed down with buckles, buttons, and zippers. Last, but certainly not least, look for a pair of flat shoes that you can easily remove for security reasons—a pair of ballet flats, slip-on slippers, or sneakers. While sandals are cute, we suggest you avoid them on long-haul flights, once again due to the change in temperature.
How can I make these looks my own?
Ready to shop? Here are the key pieces we suggest you check out for your next long-haul flight. Start by picking up a pair of dark sunglasses like Ray-Ban’s Outsiders Oversized Wayfarers Sunglasses ($150). These check all the right boxes! Then, look for a luxe yet laidback top like Boundary & Co.’s Pajama Blouse ($69) or try a slouchy cashmere sweater like Feel The Piece’s Fame Sweater ($269). Add a pair of comfortable jeans—we find Siwy’s Hannah Jeans ($184) to be super-comfortable and ultra-flattering. As for shoes, we think House of Harlow 1960’s Kail Slippers ($195) and Zara’s Soft Ballet Shoes ($80) both fit the bill. Happy shopping!
