Fair it isn’t, but stylish travel gear could make the difference between you remaining in coach seating and being upgraded to First or Business Class simply because you are now seen as a “suitable” candidate…I know from personal experience.
While comfort is paramount, shabby will get you kicked out of the HKI club quick, fast and in a hurry. On your next excursion, sport a pulled together Kings of Cole sweatshirt ($185, kingsofcole.com) with fun, faux suede elbow patches, a pair of unbelievably chic, yet comfy suede Aubrey Track Pant from Level 99 ($88, level99jeans.com) and some colorful leather flats from House of Bohemia ($135, houseofbohemia.com). And complete this look with a great tote like the Zara Bucket Bag with Zips ($99.90, zara.com) and pack it with some of these travel-size beauty musts…
For your hair you should pack the Mizani Thermasmooth System Travel Set ($10, mizani-usa.com for locations), which is a 4-step thermal straightening system designed to repair, protect and smooth your hair without the chemical commitment. The set includes: Conditioning Shampoo, Strengthening Conditioner, Smooth Guard to buffer against heat styling damage and Shine Extend that locks in shine while lightly shielding the hair to resist humidity. Experience weightless protection for long-lasting, frizz-free, smooth style with the C3 Smoothing Complex of Coconut Oil, Ceramides and Cationic Polymers. Tote this beauty necessity with you on your next vacation.
Airplane + altitude + dehydration = The Pits, so make sure to carry travel-size Repêchage – Algo Mist Hydrating Seaweed Facial Spray ($15, repechage.com) to moisturize your skin throughout your journey. ‘Algo’ is a unique blend of seaweed concentrate, Vitamin C and Gingko Biloba extract that help to decrease the appearance of fine lines due to dryness, air travel, sun or exposure to cold. And treat your body to Eight Skin Care – Body Softening Oil, Lavender ($22, eightskincare.com), which contains essential oils like Safflower Seed Oil to prevent water from leaving your skin and Coconut Oil and Gardenia Flower Extract to rejuvenate and moisturize it.
Now you’re ready for First class seating.
