The next time you’re at the airport, take a look around. You’ll probably see a few business people in suits—and a lot of people donning their not-so-finest pair of sweatpants or—gasp—pajamas! We’ve come a long way since the early days of commercial flying, when people would actually dress up for a trip on a plane.

Yes, if you’re going to be stuck in a microscopic seat for several hours, you’ll want to be comfortable. But believe it or not, comfort and style are not mutually exclusive. The next time you fly, why not try sprucing yourself up just a little—it just might make the whole herding-cattle-through-the-security-line thing more bearable!

Leggings: Just Say Yes
Few articles of clothing are as controversial as the legging, but we give it the green light for traveling. There is, however, one caveat: wear it with a long shirt or a tunic that covers your rear end! A pair of thick, quality leggings looks good while being flexible enough to accommodate endless squirming in the window seat. Leave the almost see-through pilling pair at home, though.

Swap Your Tee for a Blouse
Leggings and a t-shirt can make you feel like you’re on your way to the gym, but leggings and a blouse looks put-together and on point. Pick a wrinkle-resistant material that’s light and breathable, and pair it with a jacket or chic sweater—when it comes to airplanes and their unpredictable temperatures, layering is your friend.

Not Too Tight
Keep the top half of your outfit relatively loose-fitting. Anything too tight will probably feel constricting after a few hours in an airplane seat. If leggings are too tight for you, opt for relaxed fit trousers or a long, flowy skirt.

Scarves: a Flying Must-Have
Invest in a big, eye catching scarf: when traveling, it will become your best friend. Most people pack fairly neutral wardrobes when traveling, allowing for easy mix-and-matching on the road. A colorful scarf is the perfect way to pack a little punch into your outfit. The bigger the scarf, the better: it can double as an impromptu blanket if the plane is chilly.

Leave the Running Shoes
We know: running shoes are bulky to pack, and wearing them on the plane means that you can free up a little packing room…

Sorry to say, but if you’re aiming for a put-together look, running shoes will simply not cut it. Plus, running shoes are a total pain to take on and off in the security line ups.

If you don’t already have a pair of super comfortable but still stylish-looking walking shoes, then now is the time to make the investment. Yes, they do exist—but you might have to shop around to find the right pair for you. Once you find them, you’ll probably want to live in them forever!

Take it up a Notch
It doesn’t take much to dress your outfit up just a little. Try adding a simple touch like a fitted blazer, a gorgeous (and functional) bag, or an eye-catching watch. Remember, it’s all in the details.

Hey, you never know—putting the extra effort just might result in some unexpected perks. Upgrade to first class, anyone?
