Katie Holmes knows that the secret to the perfect jet-set outfit isn't a pair of sky-high stilettos or a skin-tight dress. While flying into Los Angeles on Thursday, the fresh-faced actress glowed in an effortlessly chic and comfortable outfit that included a bright pop of color.

The mom-of-one showed us how to stay comfortable for any long-haul flight at LAX, opting for a black-and-white oversize flannel shirt with rolled-up sleeves, which she wore over a plain white T-shirt. To keep her look from straying into drab territory, the 37-year-old added a bright pop of summer color in the form of a pair of pink boot cut jeans, which hugged the star's thighs before flaring out at the bottom. The actress draped a light sweater over her arm, just in case she got cold on the plane.

Holmes added finishing touches—and some height—to her ensemble in the form of a pair of suede tan booties.

The brunette stunner wore her hair down and appeared to be makeup-free, hiding her eyes behind a pair of oversize black sunnies.

A whimsical Fendi Monster-Creature tote bag with yellow accents ($1200; neimanmarcus.com) completed her airport-ready look. Now that's how you fly in style and comfort!
