    22 Things To Wear On An Airplane So Your Flight Isn't Terrible

    Because a belt buckle digging into your belly button shouldn't disrupt the joy that is an in-flight movie.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own.

Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A ridiculously soft hooded pullover to make it feel as if you're lounging around at home, and not hovering one billion miles somewhere up in the atmosphere.

    2. Low-top sneakers with elastic bands in lieu of laces. This means that you'll be able to slip your kicks on and off, rather than having to tie and untie every few seconds. AIRPORT SECURITY, WYA?

    3. Skinny jeans that'll have your leggings quivering with fear. These jeans are made from a soft stretch denim that make 'em β€” DARE I SAY β€” even comfier than leggings.

    4. Silicone sleeves you can slip on over the arms of the angel β€” er, your eyeglasses. This will help prevent all headache-inducing discomfort that comes from your frames digging into your head.

    5. A medium-wash denim jacket that is perfect for so many reasons. Pockets that can hold cards, cash, headphones, and chapstick! A design that goes with absolutely any outfit! I could go on all day but alas, I probably shouldn't.

    6. "Ouchless" black scrunchies to keep your mane up and outta your face without tugging and pulling at random hairs you can't seem to locate. Is there anything worse?

    7. Compression socks to keep your adorable little piggies (AKA your feet) from swelling up. Did I mention that these have over 7,000 positive reviews? I didn't? Well now I did.

    8. Cheeky briefs made from a MicroModal fabric that is *gasp* three times softer than cotton, meaning you won't be squirming in discomfort on that million-hour flight.

    9. A plant-based moisturizer currently employed by the Lord to hydrate, moisturize, and nourish your skin β€” without using a ton of harsh ingredients and icky chemicals in the process.

    10. A wrap dress you'll want to wear if you're hopping off the plane at LAX and immediately going to a business meeting. This little number is made from Japanese GoWeave, meaning it is lightweight and wrinkle-resistant.

    11. A silk sleep mask that provides a subtle-yet-effective "do not disturb sign" for the person who now needs to use the restroom. You can wait, buddy. Next time, give me the window seat.

    12. All-natural eye masks formulated with plant-based collagen, vitamin c, rose oil, and hyaluronic acid. Their purpose? To brighten your eyes + get rid of dark circles while you're en route to your European vacation.

    13. An elastic belt sans buckle, that way you won't feel a piece of metal digging into your belly button while you're eating your delicious in-flight meal. Mmmm, fresh chicken.

    14. Comfy joggers that feel like your favorite sweatpants, sure. But the tapered silhouette will look significantly more stylish and put together than your old gym-pants-turned-pajamas.

    15. Super fuzzy socks because "cold feet" should only be an expression used before major life events, am I right? Your feet should never actually be cold.

    16. A super sleek backpack large enough to hold your essentials, but small enough to stow under the seat in front of you. No more having to get up and open that overhead compartment!

    17. Opaque ankle leggings that β€” HALLELUJAH β€” aren't see-through. Yep, that's right! They won't yell "SHE'S WEARING POLKA DOT GRANNY PANTIES!" to the entire world.

    18. Disposable silicone earplugs that may help you say "GOODBYE" to discomfort. Ear pain during air travel is REAL, and babies have every reason to cry because of it. Just saying.

    19. An unlined wireless bra made by Grandma Aggie herself because this thing is MAGIC. It's super supportive, yet it feels like another layer of skin β€” almost as if you're wearing nothing at all.

    20. A blanket scarf with two purposes. 1) To make your white tee + leggings combo look more stylish, and 2) To literally cover you like a blanket if you get a bit chilly.

    21. A basic zip-up you can easily take on and off throughout your flight, meaning you won't accidentally elbow your seatmate like you would whilst trying to take off a pullover.

    22. A neck pillow with chin support designed to help your head remain upright. This'll prevent your noggin from falling down whenever you begin to snooze.

    Now if only you could find an accommodating luggage capable of fitting your entire wardrobe...
