Style is in the Air

As my Christmas vacation is fast approaching, I was thinking recently what to wear for my overnight flight in order to get off the plane looking put-together and ready to go. In general, I have a TESSfull go-to traveling-outfit formula that’s never failed to keep me comfortable, cute and warm in airports and airplanes. 
  • First, I usually go for trousers - whether these are stretch jeans, leggings or soft pantalons. All of them are extremely comfortable to sleep in any weird position you might find yourself in the chair. 
  • On top, it’s all about layers that I can add or peel off depending on the temperature on the board. Knitted sweaters rarely get wrinkles so they can secure sharpness of your look on arrival. 
  • Last but not least, shoes. I prefer to wear something easy-to-slip-off-and-on, like ballerinas or moccasins. 
  • Ah, yes, and of course, accessories. They should be very simple and appropriate for the outfit (and occasion).
I put together two TESSy looks for your inspiration (or reapplication), so you can survive 10h flights like a lady this season.
