Airplane fashion has turned into an “anything goes” environment. And we get it, comfort is king when it comes to travel, especially during those ultra-long flights around the globe. Though several airlines have tried to clamp down on what passengers can wear on flights — including no midriffs, leggings, or swimwear while on board — there is still a way to stay comfortable and stylish on your next flight. And that way is with an adorable matching sweatsuit. 

Gone are the days of sweatsuits being relegated to the gym. Now, athleisure reigns supreme at the gym, on the streets, and airports everywhere. Here are five sweatsuits you can confidently wear on your next flight knowing you look cool and feel cozy too. 

Hotouch Hooded Velour Suit

Remember in early 2000s when velour was all the rage? Well, it’s back and better than ever. Hotouch’s hooded velour suit, which features an elastic waist and sleeves, drawstring closure, and hood for comfort (some call it “heavenly soft”), is paying serious homage to the era. The two-piece suit comes in eight rich colors, from black to burgundy, and it’s slightly tapered at the bottom for a slimmer fit. Some reviewers note it runs a little small, so size up as needed.

Sweatpants aren’t for everyone, so if you’re looking for a suit with a bit more fit (and the functionality to go straight from the airport to the gym), try this “smooth and strechy” Vickisui set. The two-piece ensemble comes with fitted leggings featuring a color-block design, as well as a matching zip-up sweatshirt to complete the look. It comes in 34 different colorways, and at just under $32 a pop, you may want to buy more than one.

Easy, breezy ‘90s style has come back into vogue in a big way — and that includes tracksuits. One of Amazon’s most beloved dress brands, Mulimia, also makes this stylish sweatsuit. It features a retro-favorite half-zip hoodie in color-block design, as well as matching racing-stripe track pants. The suit has a casual, high-waisted fit, and it comes in 21 different styles and patterns, including a baby blue crop top and shorts combo

There’s something to be said for the clean, classic style of an all-black sweatsuit. It just looks cool, especially if you pair it with some fresh sneakers and maybe even a leather jacket thrown on top. To look great from takeoff to landing, grab this black suit from Fixmatti. It features a pullover hoodie and jogger pant, both constructed with 95 percent cotton and five percent spandex for just the right stretch.
