Want to fit in when flying first class? The secret to looking like you belong is all about dressing confidently and comfortably. For long hauls or weekend jaunts, you can’t go wrong with these casually sophisticated staples. 

5 Wardrobe Essentials for First Class Travel

A Classic Tee

Rule number one, you don’t want to seem like you’re trying too hard to look the part. After all, you have more pressing concerns like how to use all that extra legroom to optimize your in-flight napping experience. When in doubt, stick to versatile classics like a fresh white tee. This Supima cotton crew neck by UNIQLO for women or men is a more tailored take on a classic vintage tee with a drop shoulder construction for men and a flattering ribbed neckline for women.

Cozy Dress Pants

Described as “the ultimate combination of style and comfort,” the Stephanie Wide Leg Striped Pants are the epitome of first-class comfort-chic. For men, consider a dress pant-jogger hybrid like these commuter joggers by Rhone

A Stylish Top Layer

This bomber jacket by sandbank is a best seller for a reason. It’s affordable and light enough to keep you warm on a long flight while also functioning as a layering piece in cold climates. Available in a variety of colors, this modern bomber is the definition of elegant comfort wear. For ladies, this tunic sweatshirt with pockets is cozy with just the right amount of chic with its delicate scoop neck. 

Sleek Sustainable Sneakers

There’s nothing classier than mixing a little sustainability with your sleek.  Made from merino wool and repurposed plastic water bottles, Rothy’s spin on a Chelsea boot-sneaker is perfect for getting through security and keeping your feet cozy on any flight. For men, try Merrell’s Jungle Moc Leather 2 shoe for another eco-conscious option that’s just as sophisticated. 

Noise-canceling headphones

Noise-canceling headphones are a must-have accessory for first-class travel, not only because they look impressively cool, but also because they offer next-level peace and quiet. The quick attention mode feature also allows you to easily hear any announcements or snack offerings by easily covering the right ear cup with your palm. With a long-lasting 30-hour battery and better noise-canceling than ever before, so sit back, relax, and enjoy another complimentary beverage.
