Many years ago, when flying still felt like something of a novelty, dressing for the airport was an event. My grandmother, for instance, would always put on her best suit and heels, and you better believe her hair and makeup was done. Since flying has become commonplace, the standards of dress have drastically changed.

A good coat or blazer over comfier basics is laid back, but feels like we put in some effort, too.
