As Thanksgiving break approaches, many students are packing their carry-ons and hopping on planes to LAX, home, or a friend's house to celebrate the much-needed break from classes. What you wear for your 3-hour layover is just as important as what you pack. Looking chic for a flight may seem daunting and regrettable (can you say pinched, squeezed and constricted?), but with a few key pieces, you can look like an off-duty model without compromising comfort.

One option for an easy airport look is to opt for a big, soft blanket scarf, an oversized sweater and leggings with ankle or thigh-high boots. The blanket scarf can easily double as an extra layer of protection from the harsh in-flight air conditioning and is an easy accessory to take off at security. These options from Madewell and Target are a few of our favorites, paired with these classic black booties, which can seamlessly transition on and off the tarmac.

Looking for something a little more feminine? Grab a t-shirt dress and throw on an oversized cardigan, flannel or army jacket. Bonus: flannels can double as an accessory around the waist. Layers are key for travel — they make it easy to switch up a look while still looking put-together as you make your way to your connecting flight.

Safe travels!
