Perfect fashion ideas that will help you land a flight upgrade

I was recently on my way to the USA  and crossing my fingers that I could get a flight upgrade. I had booked at the last second and flights to the east coast from London are nearly always full but I still felt hopeful. That feeling vanished though when I saw the woman ahead of me. Talk about the height of fashion! She was hearing nice black jeans, high heels and carried beautiful designer leather bag – small enough to be a carry on but larger than a purse. My heart sank a bit. Me? I was wearing “comfy jeans” and a frumpy top and running shoes. Add on a suitcase, bag and a huge bag of candy that I had set aside for  colleagues in the USA. In other words, I was a very, very hot mess.

Flight Upgrade Style Ideas

The flight was full (at least that is what I was told), but I knew that I never really had much of a chance. It is hard though. I mean, on one half, if I am going to be sitting in premium economy for seven hours, I want to feel comfortable. On the flip side, I want to look classy and professional. With upgrades becoming rarer and rarer – and most going to frequent flyers – every little bit counts. In fact, I recently heard about a fashion designer who designed some outfits that were specifically designed to help wearers feel comfortable but look chic whether they were in first class or coach. Here are a few fashion ideas that will keep you in good  stead.

I also did a little bit of research on ideas and concepts that might make your next flight a little bit more comfortable and help you get that upgrade.  Check out these Youtube videos for a bit of inspiration!

This video is really great if you are heading out on a long haul flight! The style ideas are classy but comfy. You will need to pair them with the right shoes though so that you don’t look sloppy or messy.
