Whether hopping a quick domestic flight, a red eye (…they always seem like a great idea at the time) or an intercontinental long-haul, no one can deny that comfort is key when flying. No one wants to be trapped in already too-small seats in further restrictive, fussy and otherwise uncomfortable clothing. And while I’m always impressed to see that chic passenger effortlessly dressed to the nines, I’ll choose my equally effortless stretchy pants and oversized sweater every time. Luckily, said duo is having a serious moment. One long surpassing its newfound, pandemic era work-from-home popularity. With more and more brands jumping on the loungewear bandwagon, the category is more versatile, elevated and out-of-home appropriate than ever – effectively solidifying all things cozy, stretchy and relaxed as celebrated attire. Consider us on board.
Here, we’ve rounded up 18 such pairs of travel and flight-friendly loungewear, carefully curated for budgets affordable to luxury; styles minimalist to nostalgic. Whether you prefer cozy cashmere or a stylish ribbed knit, a skin-soft wool blend or versatile stretch cotton, you’ll want to wear these elevated loungewear sets all flight, all day and all night. Plus, all offer enough coverage to help withstand that inescapable in-flight cold draft. You’re welcome.
