Travelling this Eid? Being comfortable is just as important as looking and feeling good on those long-haul flights. Here we’ve rounded up the wardrobe essentials that should be in your carry-on.
Get the look: From the high-end to the high street, Ashlee Starratt helps you to get the look
It can get chilly on those long-haul flights with the constant A/C, so consider laying up! Slip into this comfy blush-pink belted cardigan from H&M and settle in to the in-flight entertainment. Price: RO9.6.
Between the cabin pressure, carb-heavy plane food, and sitting for hours on end, our bodies tend to retain water on long-haul flights. Avoid wearing tight or restrictive clothing and instead opt for trousers in light, breathable fabrics that stretch easily. We love these powder-blue fluid jacquard pair from MANGO, which retail for RO19.
Finally! Frequent flyers have the option of colourful, stylish compression stockings! Long the territory of ‘Granny garments’, these potentially life-saving socks help facilitate circulation on long-haul flights and reduce the risk of deep-vein thrombosis. Grab this rainbow-hued pair from A-Swift for RO4.9. (Available on Amazon).
Because our feet also tend to swell up in-flight – the same rule of loose-fitting apparel applies. Opt for shoes that you can slip on and off with ease and allow enough stretch so as not to cramp your toes – like these pair of ballet flats from Hush Puppies in a sleek snake-print. Wear them for RO30.7. (Available online.)
This grey quilted carry-on from River Island is both stylish and functional – big enough to carry all your travel essentials from your makeup kit and passport holder, to a spare cardigan or slippers, snacks, plus that book you’ve been waiting to get up in the air to finish! Snag it for RO21.2. (Available online).
We get it. You want to accessorize without going over-board on those long-haul flights.Ditch those long necklaces and dangling earrings that will weigh you down and trade them in for a colourful pair of studs that will keep you looking chic from departure to arrival. We love these bright pair from M&S that go for RO3.5.
Keep your skin glowing while grabbing some shut-eye at altitude with a sleep mask that does double-duty. The Illuminage Skin-Rejuvenating Sleep Mask is made with copper fibres woven into its patented silky fabric that alleges to help your skin look radiant. Snag it online from Nordstrom for RO13.4.
