Whether it’s a quick hop over to Amsterdam or a loooong movie marathon to Auz, we’ve got you covered. Scroll for comfy clothes, cool caps and cute extras (read: mini makeup essentials).

WHAT TO WEAR ON A SHORT FLIGHT

A short flight probs means you’re going from plane to plans real quick – so you’re gunna need a versatile ’fit. Something that is comfy and warm enough in the clouds, yet ’grammable on the ground – enter: the co-ord suit. This oversized style in a delish buttermilk yellow SUIT-s the brief 😉 Wear it with a bralette and a long-sleeve tee on the plane to keep you snug, then drop that final layer pre landing – or, depending on your plans, go completely bare underneath. And if you’re worried about coffee spillages (damn turbulence🙄), mask the clumsy life with a darker shade like brown. The best part? You can wear these with your fave sneaks and STILL look chic.

Before you can live your best bikini life, it’s one last hurrah for hoodies, joggers and soft, cloud-like fabrics ☁️ A long-haul flight (maybe with stop-overs 😅) calls for a srsly comfy airport outfit, and nothing feels nicer than a fresh Nike tracksuit. Choose summer-ready colours like pastel purple or lobster pink (getting us in the mood for that fancy five-star hotel!), and don’t forget to wear something warm underneath – we ALL know how unpredictable plane temps are.
