Do you remember when people used to “dress up” to fly?
No, us neither, but we have all seen those nostalgic images of glamorous, hatted and pearled women, accompanied by dapper gentlemen smoking inflight.
Dressing to fly now consists of leisure wear that is crease proof, moisture wicking with lots of stretch and just quietly we are here for it.
Taking comfort to the next level and dressing to be able sleep inflight is our latest obsession and whilst some airlines like Qantas and Emirates provide sleepwear for travelers (at the pointy end) there is actually an art to finding the ultimate inflight sleep suit that doesn’t look like your mammas pyjamas.
So if you have ever tried and failed at dressing comfortably for a flight and found yourself in a pair of skinny jeans one size too small, a business shirt or a pair of too tight shoes, get ready to transform your Airport/ Travel wardrobe and breeze though the flight (and airport) like an A-Lister.

We have written about White + Warren a few times (we are MASSIVE fans) Their Cashmere Travel wraps have cult like status among frequent fliers and A Listers and are like a luxe security blanket when traveling. Neutral tones are best for travel capsule wardrobes but a pop of colour can work well, especially if you are traveling to a winter destination and need to brighten up your look.

Made with 100% silk and Velvet. It's soft and luxe and means I can black out my seat neighbor or unwanted harsh cabin lights. The silk is light on the face, doesn’t crush eye lashes and because it's a natural fiber is breathable.
Traveling can be stressful, so start by eliminating the anxiety that inappropriate footwear, or skinny jeans give you when you are stuck in the middle row of an overnight flight.
