As many of us start traveling again this year, I’ve been getting questions about what to wear on a flight or car ride. Here are three travel outfits that are great for long trips.
Need some ideas for travel outfits?
Earlier this month we went to Hawaii for a family trip, and our direct plane flight from Dallas to Honolulu was almost eight hours! Whew – that’s a long time on a plane, and called for good travel outfits.
If you have a long flight or road trip coming up, here are some good travel outfit ideas that you can copy, or use as inspiration.
Make it work for YOU!
Remember, one part of the outfit formulas I’m sharing might not work for you — that’s ok! Just adjust as needed to make it right for you. You hate sneakers? Swap for something different. You’d never wear a backpack? Try a different bag.
Check out these three cute travel outfits for long plane flights or drives!
Travel outfit formula #1: leggings and layers
Leggings are always a good idea. These ones are thick and sturdy, don’t stretch out, and are great if you need some compression on your legs.
Wear light layers that you can shed if it gets warm. And a pair of fun sneakers always completes a good travel outfit.
Travel outfit formula #2: Jumpsuit and a cardigan
This jumpsuit has been a favorite from the moment it arrived. Some people have said a jumpsuit wouldn’t work for them on travel days because it requires undressing to go to the bathroom. If you’re one of those people who can’t be bothered, no problem! Just try one of the other outfit formulas.
But I wore this on the flight to Hawaii a few weeks ago and it was fantastic. Super comfy and I felt cute. I brought a cardigan with me cause it’s short sleeved and I always get cold.
And of course, if you’re traveling in sandals, bring a pair of socks if your feet always get cold, like mine!
Travel outfit formula #3: Matching set
These matching sets are so popular right now and I love them. I wore this exact tie dye one on the red-eye flight home from Hawaii, and it felt like I was in pajamas but I still felt cute.
The denim jacket is optional, of course, but it’s a good addition if you are heading somewhere right after you flight and want to feel a little more put together.
You could wear this with sandals or sneakers, but either way, don’t forget the cozy socks!
