Today is the busiest travel day of the year, and whether you have a two or 10-hour flight, comfort shouldn't totally eclipse style. From distressed denim to loose-fitting joggers, below are three cozy yet fashionable outfits perfect for your trip home.

Sporty Chic


A pair of leggings is the next best thing to sweatpants. Pair them with an oversize sweater and sneaker combo for a casual take on dressing. Add a leather baseball cap to exude a sporty edge.

Relaxed Cool


Stay comfortable with loose-fitting pieces like a pair of distressed jeans and a silky blouse, but make sure your extras have purpose: slip on mules will make going through airport security seamless and a scarf will double as a blanket when plane temperatures drop.
