You wouldn’t be wrong if your first thought was one about comfort. For the last seven years or so, the sweatsuit has reigned superior when it comes to being comfortable in motion, carrying you from point A to point B with a plushy ease and an added guard against over air conditioned environments. More recently, I’ve seen a lot of pajamas, specifically in airports. And while this sounds like a good idea in theory, no matter how cute your monogrammed PJ set is, wearing it out feels a little, well, inappropriate.
Or is that just me? I’m much more keen to feel like a woman who echoes the sophistication of a Pinterest board flooded with images of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy or Jackie O jet setting in refined ensembles. But it’s 2017, and achieving a harmony between style and comfort is possible.
Actually, it has been possible since 1989 when Issey Miyake introduced Pleats Please, a line of highly functional pleated products that are light weight, mobile, easy to throw on, and not overly sensitive to being tucked away in a carry on. They pull on like sweats but masquerade as a tailored garment. In other words, they’re the answer to your question of, “But what should I wear?” especially as you head out for vacation. Be comfortable, look stylish, and offend no one.
