What to Take On Board

Best foot forward – no sneakers, please! This is the first part of the trip so dress for it. Layering is a good idea because even in summer, the plane can be chilly. 

Wear slacks with some lycra, a knit shirt and a jacket or sweater. Shoes should be comfortable but stylish. Ballet Flats or wedges are a good idea. Depending on the climate, take a coat – we like a packable trench. Never travel without a pashmina or wrap; it can function as a blanket, a pillow or as a cozy escape from a pushy seatmate. Pack all of your essentials in a chic but sturdy tote.
