Who wants to be anything but comfortable on a flight? At LAX and JFK, celebrities are just like us. No matter where you’re going or what the duration of your flight is, having some comfort while stuck in those tiny seats with no leg room is a must. Still, as these celebs show us below, it is absolutely possible to be chic whilst being comfy.

Elevated Athleisure

A little stretch in your fabric goes a long way on a long flight. Elevate your athleisure look by dressing monochromatic, throwing a chic leather jacket over your outfit, or a tying a long sleeve button-up around your waist.

Layers

Wearing light layers, like a cardigan or a scarf, will keep you warm when it gets chilly while flying and later lets you cool off when you land. Functional and practical! If the weather permits, layering your heaviest coat or sweater will also save precious room in your luggage.

Denim

Stretchy jeans, a tee, and easy shoes: this is a no-fail outfit formula for a relaxed flight!

Remember that traveling should be fun, and there’s enough stress in preparing for a trip—so don’t add being uncomfortable for hours in a tiny plane seat to your plans!
