Traveling for business can be a balancing act, especially when you need to step off a plane and head straight into meetings. Choosing the right outfit is crucial to ensure you look polished and professional while staying comfortable during your flight. Here’s a guide to help you navigate this sartorial challenge.

Prioritize comfort without compromising professionalism. The key to dressing for a flight followed by meetings is to find the sweet spot between comfort and sophistication. Choose fabrics that are breathable and wrinkle resistant. Cotton blends, knits, and performance fabrics designed for travel can keep you comfortable and looking fresh. One option would be the Bite Studios Maisis Shirt and pant. These pieces can be paired together or separate for two plane certified outfits.

Airplane cabins can vary greatly in temperature. Layering allows you to adjust your outfit for comfort. A light sweater or blazer can keep you warm on the plane and can be easily removed if it’s warmer when you land. The Nili Lotan Ivory Sweater is a great choice to stay warm and look chic. Another option would be the Veronica Beard Dickey Jacket. Pair this classic jacket with the Hoodie Dickey and Citizens of Humanity Isola Jean.

Building a travel friendly wardrobe is about selecting versatile, multi-purpose pieces. Here are some essentials. Opt for pants with a bit of stretch to allow for comfort during long flights. The High Sport Kick Pant is the quintessential traveling pant. This pant is tailored from a French lycra and Italian cotton blend knit, offering a flattering fit with a clean finish. Pair with the Citizens of Humanity Bina Crewneck.

A well-fitted blazer instantly elevates any outfit. Choose a wrinkle-resistant fabric to keep it looking sharp. This piece can be dressed up or down and provides warmth if the plane is chilly. We suggest the Bite Studios Polus Jacket because of its breathability and versatility. Pair with the Bite Studios Two Tone Long Sleeve Top and Khaite Marine Pant. 

One item that is a must when traveling is a quality bag. A professional looking carry-on bag or briefcase is essential. It should be spacious enough to hold your essentials while looking sleek and polished. The Capricho Ava Overnight Bag is just that. Made with buttery leather the Ava is a timeless piece that embodies sophisticated style. Add in the Alexis Pouch for smaller items that you want to keep safe.

By choosing versatile, comfortable, and professional pieces, you can transition smoothly from the airplane cabin to the conference room. Keep your look polished with smart accessories and personal care, ensuring you arrive ready to impress.
