If you’re one of the lucky ones to be joining Deborah Hutton on her Food, Wine and Relaxtion river cruise through France next month or perhaps you’re intending to become a seasoned jetsetter, I’ve compiled a list of the ‘best-of’ in-flight essentials to stay stylish and comfortable on long haul flights.

  1. Start with lighweight and comfortable classics such as soft tapered pants, wrap cardigan and cotton long sleeve tees.  Tapered pants or joggers will always look more stylish and can be worn with a feminine ballet flat or metallic sneakers.
  2. If you’re going to a warm destintation, take a non-crease and lightweight dress to change into before landing.
  3. A scarf adds an extra layer of warmth inflight and whilst on vacation.
  4. A soft and comforable pair of ballet flats are a classic and stylish choice.
  5. Add a touch of bling to your onboard ensemble – a hoop earring is a great option.
  6. Socks in organic cotton or wool will keep feet warm and toasty in the chilly cabin.  Rub essential oil on feet first (see beauty tip).
  7. Jetsetting celebrities always carry a large tote on board to hold everything from iPads to toiletries.
  8. Carry a good size cosmetics bag for skin care and beauty products.
  9. Always carry a travel size/mini manicure case for those inevitable nail dilemmas.
  10. A silk eye mask will not just help you to sleep but is also gentle on skin.
  11. Noise reducing earphones or ear plugs are the jetsetter’s must-have accessory when travelling.
  12. Boring luggage tags are so yesterday.  Choose personalised or stylish tags that will help you quickly identify your bags.
  13. Inflatable pillows are the only way to fly on long haul flights.
  14. Take a good book – or your favourite series and binge-watch to your heart’s content.
