Travel outfit ideas: how to stay comfortable and stylish on a flight

outfit ideas for flight

Whilst we may not have a bank of paparazzi waiting for us in arrivals – planning your travel outfit ahead will ensure that you touch down at your destination with a semblance of style, rather than a frazzled mess. Whether you’re travelling long-haul or just a short hop – these style tips will help you stay comfy and stylish during your flight.




The perfect accessory for any travel outfit is practical, roomy hand luggage. We always take our beach basket in the cabin to save on hold luggage space – it’s big enough to take a change of shoes, tech, books and snacks for the kids. We love these personalised ones from Forage Somerset, there are matching mini ones for littlies, too.

Layer up with a light-weight denim jacket over your Yunion T t-shirt – uncrushable, versatile and you may be grateful for it on your return flight back to a grey Blighty! Here’s our edit of our favourites.

Make the most of this season’s ‘luxe jogger’ trend for a stylish, yet comfortable, travel option. Look for natural fibres that won’t crease – cotton jersey is a great option. Zara have a brilliant edit this season – this chambray pair would look great with our soft black or warm navy tees.

Our modal scarves are bestsellers at this time of year; they’re great for layering if you get cold on the plane, but then double up brilliantly as a sarong in warmer climes.

The best beauty tip when travelling is to stay hydrated, eat lightly to avoid bloating and MOISTURISE. If you’re flying long-haul, Aveda’s Shampure dry shampoo is perfect for pepping up a flat ‘do’ (it’s non-aerosol, so hand-luggage friendly); if you can go make-up free, do – your skin will thank you for it. If not, opt for a light-weight, tinted moisturiser with high SPF – we love La Roche Posay’s Anthelios Ultra Light Tinted Fluid SPF50. A quick slick of a super nourishing tinted lip balm, like this one from Eve Lom, will hydrate and add a pop of colour for arrival…

Bon Voyage!
