My stylish @RalphLauren tracksuit is so perfect for a #longhaul flight!
I often wonder as to how much I have to think about an appropriate outfit to wear before boarding a long-haul flight. There are many factors that need to be considered. Firstly, the dress has to be comfortable enough so that it does not get in the way of watching movies in the flight one after the another for several hours at a time, and makes sitting in one position not such a big pain; secondly, it should not wrinkle with the slightest body-movement or even stretch out in an ugly bag-like shape making me look 10 pounds more; and lastly I should still look presentable on arrival especially when I go through immigration and security! Then there is also the factor of free flight upgrades that needs to be reflected upon. On occasions, I have heard my friends remark how important it is to be smartly dressed for a flight to attract a free Business class upgrade! I do not deny the fact that I have enjoyed this privilege of last-minute free upgrades more than once in my life but I am not sure if this can be accounted to sophisticated dressing, the goodwill of the airlines staff or the mysterious working of the Universe to fulfill my desires. In any case, I do believe that God helps those who help themselves so I take every effort to dress up appropriately before showing up at the airport!
In my last flight, I chose these track pants from Ralph Lauren with a matching jacket also from RL and a full sleeves RL tee with an embroidered RL monogram. The single, clean off-white color of the outfit, together with the good quality of the material does set it apart from the usual tracksuits making it ideal for long-haul flights-casual yet sophisticated.
I completed the look with my Coach shoes and a Coach leather bag big enough to hold all flight-essentials! I love this bag-it's beautiful leather, very spacious and adds just that touch of sophistication needed to complete an otherwise casual look...I love it!
