When you’re getting ready to jet off to a new destination, the clothes in your suitcase aren’t the only style elements you need to consider. In fact, what you wear while boarding, and upon arrival, is equally as important.

Achieving practical comfort

Traveling demands an equal dose of comfort and style. You certainly don’t want to go overboard; you’ll want to create maximum impact with minimal effort and simplicity, especially if you have to travel for long hours. The goal is quiet confidence… see what we did there.

Whether you are going on a business trip or on a personal vacation, your travel outfit has to be comfortable without making you look any less smart. Following are some guidelines to help you choose the right outfit while in the air.

You can’t go wrong with a classic Tee

Wearing a solid color Barakett T is a big yes. With our premium breathable and comfortable 100% Pima cotton, all you have left to do is pick a color. A solid color Tee will make it easy for you to build the rest of your outfit. White, black and blue are the most versatile colors and can work for various locations and climates but don’t be afraid to incorporate any of our other colors.

Try these trousers

In terms of trousers, you have three options. You can wear chinos, jeans or jogging bottoms. Chinos will make you look less casual, while jeans will give a more relaxed look. However, for the ultimate comfort, you can go with our Dante lounge pant. Avoid fitted or tight pants while flying. If your destination is hot, you may roll them upon arrival or opt for a cropped fit.

You can’t forget the shoes

Your feet naturally swell when flying. So, you must make sure that your shoes will allow your feet to breathe comfortably.Try incorporating a classic white sneaker or casual slip on loafer. These are extremely suited for traveling in style and comfort.

Traveling for business purposes

Dressing up for a work trip is definitely different than dressing for a vacation. Nonetheless, even if in certain cases you have no choice than to wear a jacket and nice trousers, you may nail the business casual look with a blazer, potentially our Forest Hill sportcoat.

Layering with a jacket

Jackets are a must while travelling. Consider grabbing a light alternative such as our Calabria zip-up or even a sleeveless option with our choice of Gallagher or Hamburg vests. These are an easy addition to any outfit, straddling both style and comfort

In the case of an extremely long flight

If the duration of your trip is more than 5 hours, you have the green light to wear your favorite sweatpants, throw on a classic Barakett T and one of our many zip hoodies.

Now that your outfit is plane-ready, make sure the rest of your vacation outfits exude the same quiet confidence.
