WEAR IT YOUR WAY

Whether worn as a cardi or a button-down shirt, Julie Park’s sumptuous batwing topper, made from 100 percent cashmere, is a multitasking space- and sanity-saver. Bonus: It’s softer—and far more sanitary—than a polyester inflight blanket.

ZIP UP, FLY RIGHT

Bump your office uniform up a class with an ankle pant that’s work appropriate without being fusty. Eileen Fisher’s skinny organic-cotton trouser (blended with spandex for stretch) includes a pair of invisible side zippers, so you can give swollen ankles some respite during a long flight.

UNDER COVER

Look effortlessly put-together—even stumbling off the red-eye—with Stewart + Brown’s boiled-wool Duncan coat. Warm and all-encompassing, especially if you’re on the receiving end of an overzealous air-conditioner, the buttoned-up wrapper features a waist tie to cinch its voluminous silhouette into shape.

THAT’S A WRAP

Lina Rennell’s Tie Hat/Scarf pulls double duty as a noggin warmer and neck wrap. Ethically made in Northern California from a blend of organic cotton and wool, the two-for-one accoutrement is aviator chic at its finest. (All that’s missing are goggles and a flight jacket.)

AUDREY STYLE

Five-inch heels are less than glamorous when you’re sprinting across the airport to make your connecting flight. Channel your inner gamine instead with Swedish Hasbeens’ Hepburn, a classic ballet flat handmade from sustainably tanned leather.

SLIP AND SLIDE

If the thought of going barefoot through security is enough to give you hives, sheath your soles in a pair of organic cotton liners by Ecoland. Designed to be worn with pumps or flats without peeking through, the skintight prophylactics feature covered elastic and silicone grippers on the ankles to prevent slippage as you mosey through.
