Believe it or not, this is my 'comfortable plane wear'. I'll be the first to admit that this is the first time I've been this creative; my trusty TOPSHOP MOTO Baxter jeans have served me well on many an occasion. However, years of observing stylish women boarding planes meant I just had to up my game. No slouchy jumpers or cosy leggings for me, I was going to be the best dressed passenger on my Ryanair flight (cue 'that's not terribly difficult' jokes here').
Being on the visually impaired scale myself I find staring at this print at a distance in the mirror feels like an optical illusion, I feel myself going a little cross eyed. I am still fervently in love with the print regardless. They are incredibly comfortable too; they're clearly elastine based because they stretch so well. I can sit cross legged in these, and that is a number one priority on a three hour flight.
The trousers are so slim legged that pairing it with an ordinary cotton tank top (or tops of that variety) meant I felt like I was in a full body suit. I felt like a jazzy cat woman. When I found this swing vest my problems were solved. It's not just a perfect partner for these trousers but a gorgeous piece in itself. It's a perfect alternative to many of the camis on the market if you have a more 'full' figure up top. The deep v shape will compliment your assets as opposed to allowing them to make you look like a qualified mama whale. The deeper v detail on the back is also a bonus, because there's always something wonderful about a low back.
I'll have to admit that after two hours on the flight my feet got a bit chilly and I did have to resort to wrapping my cardigan around my feet, but apart from that my flight attire had never looked so good. That was until I was queuing behind a family at passport control. Their daughter's Disney princess rucksack seemed just that bit more fabulous than my carry on. I had been outdone by a toddler, and she looked at me like she knew it too.
