      What to wear on a long haul flight?

      I'm sure we must have this thread every year

      So as I can't bring myself to wear anything velour or tracksuit orientated I need some ideas.

      Yes I want to be warm and comfy, but I want to look half decent as well.

      My jeans aren't comfortable enough for that long and I have binned all my combats, I think I read somewhere that layering was the key

      So any ideas
      Emigrated to Sydney on the 6th June 2011 and so far we're loving it!!

      I am wearing black cotton slim bootcut trousers (with some stretch), a t-shirt and a cardigan. I am never cold on aeroplanes I always feel they are really stuffy, but not cold. But that's me, you might feel the cold! I normally take yoga trousers to change into once I am on the plane, as they are really comfy, and change back into my other clothes before we land.

      Re: What to wear on a long haul flight?

      yes i always feel cold on planes. i tend to wear cargo pants (without belt) & l/s t shirt with fleece (without hood as it gets all scrunched up and uncomfortable) and that's fine. Def take shoes off and have fluffy socks. I wish i could travel stylishly but for 18 hours on a plane i don't see how you'd do it! i wouldn't be organised enough to take a change of clothes, let alone change them - its all i can do to keep my toothbrush somewhere where i can find it!

      are you going anywhere exciting?

      Layers, lots of layers. It also depends how long haul as by the second leg of my trip to NZ I couldn`t give a dam what I looked like and dressed purely for comfort. I went to the airport in black lightweight jeans turn up to 3/4, LS black & white stripe T, pewter supertone trainers, black pirate cardi and hair down, then just before boarding changed into black velour joggers, hello kitty socks, soft bra, baggy marl grey hoodie, tied hair back and took makeup off. Then changed back again after customs & boarder control.

      If its only a one sector hop I would do soft linen trousers, LS T and a light knit, flipflops with socks in my carry on and a pashmina incase its cold or to use as a pillow.

      Re: What to wear on a long haul flight?

      When I flew a few weeks ago I wore:
      - black jersey maxi skirt
      - cotton halterneck top (nice and slouchy)
      - lightweight cotton cardigan
      - ballet pumps (with flip flops in my hand luggage)
      - large pashmina in case I got chilly

      Layers! I tend to wear a lot of jersey and cashmere - last time I flew long haul I wore a black tee shirt dress with a belt (which I took off on the plane), black opaques, biker boots (it was winter and I was flying to Canada), a themal vest under the dress, a cashmere cardie and a big snuggly scarf. I had a pair of thin soft ballet-style black slippers as well so I could take my boots off.

      I am wearing my high waist indigo skinnies (they are more like jeggings and are v comfy) with a black slouchy tee, black hush cardie and leopard print LV scarf (that could double as a blanket!) I will be shamefully wearing my Uggs and always put flipflops in outer pocket of suitcase to change in to when we land!

      Re: What to wear on a long haul flight?

      I haven't done long haul for ages but I always go down the layering route with lots of natural fibres so your body can breathe. I'd go:

      * leggings
      * oversized tee or vest
      * cotton or wool slouchy cardi
      * flat comfy shoes (with flipflops in hand luggage if I'm landing somewhere hot)
      * big pash as I get chilly on planes
      * sunnies
      * big handbag to chuck everything in

      boyfriend jeans that are baggy or combats with a vest under a light slouchy t-shirt - both ways with flip flops and pashmina in hand luggage

      oh and a baggy hoody incase the plane is super cold or if we are flying/arriving early morning
