Tips for being stylish in the air

After packing a suitcase, the last thing you want to do is spend time worrying about what to wear on a plane. has some tips for looking good in the air.

1. Wear pants that have some stretch; a black ankle-length skinny pant, jeans in a simple dark wash, a riding pant, or substantial leggings.

2. Choose a "boyfriend cardigan" or tunic-length pullover sweater in light-weight wool or cashmere. It should be long enough to cover your bottom, especially if you are wearing leggings.

3. Underneath, wear a loose cotton T-shirt or shirt with a shirt-tail hem (longer in the back). If the cabin is overheated, you can take off the sweater and still look great.

4. When it comes to coats, you might consider a waterproof trench or puffer coat, depending on where you are travelling to. A lightweight puffer rolls up to serve double-duty as a pillow.

5. An oversize cashmere or fine-gauge wool scarf pulls the look together. It can be used as a blanket during the flight (or worn as a wrap over a cocktail dress when you've reached your destination).

Hook up with this hip device

The Airhook is a small plastic device that hooks on to the tray table of the seat in front of you on a plane - giving you somewhere to put things without having to lower the table.

It consists of a hook, a cup holder and a clamp that can hold a variety of tablets or smartphones. So without lowering the tray table, and making the little leg room you have on a plane even smaller, you have somewhere to put a drink, and a clamp to support phones and tablets up to 8.5 inches tall.
