First Fashion: Ready for Takeoff

When I was checking Yahoo News this morning, the top headline read: “What to do if you’re stuck on a runway.” My first reaction was, “Is that a problem?” Oh, that kind of runway (one with 747s not Twenty8Twelve). But even if you’re heading for JFK and not the tents at Bryant Park, maintaining a fashion-forward rather than a just-outta-bed look is still a priority. A few travel-smart selections below.

Jersey or fine-knit tops are essential at 30,000 feet. They’re comfy, move freely, and with fall’s draping trend, if you exit the plane looking a little rumpled, you’re even more in. Elizabeth and James - Funnel Neck Sweatshirt


Always bring a fluid cardigan on board. This is especially a good idea when trekking between vastly different climes. Cardis add a grown-up chicness to any outfit and, as an added bonus, are easily rolled into a pillow. Elizabeth and James - Scarf Wrap Cardigan


If you’re like me and fall asleep as soon as the plane starts taxiing, only to wake up with hair that resembles a wild animal, a hat is your new best friend. This Bop Basics beret not only exudes that just-back-from-Paris je ne sais quoi, it also takes up miniscule suitcase space. Bop Basics - Cashmere Beret
