I have traveled quite a bit long distance. What I find quite useful is a good eye mask. It really helps me to rest on the plane.

Plus if possible, invest in a quality noise cancelling headphone. You will find this alone makes flying experience a whole lot different!

Haha yeah, as an Aussie I'm like "8 hours?? Express flight!" lol
Good headphones and a power bank for your phone are lifesavers. I also bring a camping pillow, which I find much more comfortable than one of those travel pillows. And 2nd vote on the eyemask, although depending who you fly they may give you one.

I'd say I wear comfortable clothes but still try to look nice and put together. Nice pants/jeans, blouse with a blazer, plus I always bring an extra sweater and scarf in case it gets too cold on the plane. I prefer to wear flat shoes when traveling, but bringing an extra pair of nice heels or sandals for when getting off the plane is always a good idea. Some of my other must haves: headphones, power bank and a good book (two, if it's a long flight).

Lean for more casual.
I would probably rock a pair of driving shoes, chinos or denim, or perhaps a casual button down shirt or tee with a cardigan or hoodie. Probably not anything too right or restricting. Definitely easy to remove layers depending on how weather conditions change.

I know a lot of people like wearing jeans on long flights but I opt for either leggings with a tshirt, sweater, scarf and booties (if winter) or a loose fitting dress and sandals with a big scarf and/or warm sweater to put on during the flight (if summer). I dehydrate and bloat very badly on long flights and jeans are too restrictive/painful for me for any flight over 4 or 5 hours. Absolutely purchase a large water bottle in the airport terminal to bring on the flight with you and make sure you keep yourself as hydrated as possible.

I also like to bring purel, clorox wipes, hand lotion, makeup remover wipes, mouthwash, hairbrush, and touch up makeup in a small bag in my carry on or purse so that I can keep clean and then freshen up at the airport upon arrival.

For me, it really depends on where you're flying to. I dress for when I arrive, rather than when I fly. So if I'm going to a cold place, I go for an all-black (maybe with shades of gray) outfit, with knee-high boots (flat ones so I can still walk with ease).

When I'm flying to a hot country or city, I go for comfort. Denim shorts, a loose sleeveless top with spaghetti straps, a pair of flat, cozy lace sandals. But wherever I go, sunglasses are important. As for makeup, I only use a tinted moisturizer, a tinted lip balm, clear mascara and eyebrow liner (because come on). Oh let me also note that I only wear aviators when travelling because they go well with any outfit.

What is your opinion on compression leggings/tights on long flights???? Am I being silly..?

Have a 20h flight to Asia next week..I´ve tried the kneesocks, but wanted to hear if anyone has any opinions about the leggings.

My airplane uniform is lululemon apres-yoga pants (either black or blue), some kind of comfortable top, preferably not too bulky (for TSA reasons, no pat-down thank you)--a T or sweater. My Mary Jane walking shoes, and my wrap, which is a bright pink cashmere/silk with beaded fringe (the round beads are made of the same thread from which the wrap is woven). Also my watch (vintage rose gold Bulova) and a big leather tote with a magazine or two.

There's a need for more individuality today, and my job is to cater to women, not dictate to them.

when I went to Mexico City in June, the weather was so bad that they had to abort the landing during the approach (only 15 ft off the ground).... we flew to a smaller airport about 300 miles away where we finally landed then waited on the tarmac for 90 minutes (for the storms to clear in Mexico City).... what was supposed to be a four hour flight became eight....

so where am I going with this? from now on I dress for pure comfort on a plane (in the event that the journey takes far longer than expected).... I've gone back to track pants and tees with sneakers....

I usually travel around Europe where flights are short, so I dress somewhere between chic and comfortable. Usually a pair of jeans or roomy pants, always a T-shirt (topped with a cardigan and a scarf if chilly), a pair of low-top Converse or Chelsea boots, depending on the season, and a backpack. Of course a warm parka or a coat that doesn't wrinkle easily is a must-wear in winter, as well as a pair of sunglasses and eyeglasses to switch.
