You've been preparing for weeks. Your passport is up to date, your flight is booked, and the perfect outfits are packed. Now you just have to get there. While the destination is always worth the hassle, being stuck on an airplane for an extended period of time isn't always the most comfortable experience.
Thankfully there are ways to make flights more bearable. Avoid going stir-crazy on your next trip by shopping our seven travel essentials that will help make even the longest flight feel like a breeze.
1. Comfy Sweats
When it comes to long-haul flights, comfort is key, which is why we love these cozy J.Crew joggers. Avoid looking like you just rolled out of bed by pairing them with a structured button up and sleek footwear.
2. Sweater That Doubles As a Blanket
The ultimate travel piece has to be an oversized sweater that can also be used as a blanket. This Lululemon caped option will keep you looking polished as you browse the duty free shops and keep you warm and toasty once you board the inevitably chilly plane.
3. Slip-On Sneakers
Airport security is tough enough as it is. Get through the long lines fast by wearing a pair of chic sneakers like these Kenneth Cole kicks. The easy slip-on shoes help you avoid wasting time in line tying laces or zipping up boots. Simply step in, grab your stuff and go.
4. Eye Mask
Avoid those pesky in-flight lights with a stylish eye-mask. This cashmere Morgan Lane option is so soft you will feel like you are sleeping on the clouds instead of just flying through them.
5. Cozy Socks
Feel at home on the plane by throwing a pair of cozy socks in your carry-on. These cashmere UGG socks are sold in a three-pack so you'll have a clean pair to wear on the return flight too!
6. Refreshing Face Mist

Keep your skin looking refreshed and moisturized throughout the flight with a travel sized face mist. This Vitamin E rosewater from The Body Shop helps boost hydration without messing up your makeup. Spritz on whenever you need a refreshing "pick me up."
7. Eye Patches
Just in case the above eye mask didn't help you get those much needed Z's, be sure to pack these Dr. Jart+ eye patches. The hydrogel patch provides natural circulation which helps you look like you slept through the entire flight.
