Memorial Weekend marks the start of summer traveling. What to wear during the flight is always a conundrum. It must be comfortable and warm enough, but it can’t resemble a track suit. If you were to be randomly upgraded, you will lose your chance if your pants say “juicy” in the back.
Taking a cue from these frequent traveling celebrities and my own experience, I put together pieces that are not only comfortable but ECO stylish as well.
