Spring Breaks and holidays are just around the corner, if you aren’t already enjoying yours, which means for many, travel plans will be savored and thoughtful wardrobe choices are most likely being considered if they haven’t already been planned.
Chloe Malle recently wrote an article for WSJ’s Off Duty section on the topic of traveling in style – chic, yet comfortable, and initially, I was hesitant as the shift is away from structure and toward elasticity – sort of.
TSLL readers may already know who Chloe Malle is: a contributing style editor for Vogue and the daughter of Candice Bergen of Murphy Brown. Having followed her for a while now on Instagram, she is a source I consider to be as down-to-earth as one can be in the world of fashion. And as someone who travels extensively for her job, when her new article caught my eye this weekend, it was seeing her name that made me consider trusting what she had to share.
Sharing the truths of modern air travel – far less leg space, long lines in which to wait, not to mention more seats scrunched into a cabin – I began to reconsider how I might adjust what I wear when I have the opportunity to hop on a plane again.
While I am not entirely comfortable wearing leggings on the plane, wearing comfortable pants that move and breathe is much more comfortable and can be chic when shopped well. Look for stretch, but structure as shown in the pants below. Dresses as well are a traditional and trusted option that I also enjoy, especially in the summer with a flowing maxi dress layered with a light jacket.
But winter is only transitioning into spring, not summer As of this week, so I took some of Malle’s advice, shopped around a bit and found an outfit that will not only look chic, but will certainly be comfortable during the flight no matter how long.
Bon voyage and may your upcoming getaway offer the respite you are seeking.
