    Under $100

    Today's outfit is for those jet setters who are always seeking the ultimate airport outfit. Obviously, comfort is a big factor for those long plane rides and crowded airports, but it doesn't mean that it's an excuse for sloppiness. When it comes to choosing your outfit, choose solid, darker colours with a loose but not baggy fit. The key to achieving this look is simplicity. A cardigan is an airplane staple because it can be easily removed if the temperature is too stuffy, and can just as easily be thrown on if it gets too chilly. The stretch t-shirt in a stain-friendly colour is a practical choice because of those people in front of you who ALWAYS lean back too far and knock over your drink! Don't forget to break out the jeans - the ones we picked have a lean, straight leg but won't confine you like your skinny jeans, cause skinny jeans on a 6 hour flight to NY? No thanks! Lastly, ballet flats are ideal to get through security without having to readjust too much, as they take no time to lace or zip up, but still fashionably trendy (unlike the equally practical Ugg boots, but unlike these flats, Uggs are definitely not fashionable). So put on this versatile outfit, pile on your luggage, beat the crowds to the airport and have a nice flight!

    1.) AE Academy Cardigan (in Black) - $39.50;
