Meghan Markle is on the move—to Europe for the Invictus Games, specifically—and has the perfect travel outfit for the 10.5-hour flight. As someone who admittedly struggles with long-flight outfit planning, I appreciate all the help I can get (even if Meghan Markle didn’t intentionally mean to help me).
While everything about Markle’s outfit for the trip was spot-on, it was her pants and shoes that really caught my eye. Markle opted for loose wide-leg pants for the flight, which I find to be a genius move. The loose trousers provide comfort for the lengthy flight, but also polish (which they have far more of than leggings or sweatpants). For her shoes, she opted for a pair of chic flat mules, and I’ll tell you why that was also a smart move. Obviously flats are key on travel days, and the backless pair may not be quite as secure as, say, a pair of sneakers, but the benefit you get is not having your shoes rubbing the back of your ankle raw as you walk through a massive airport.
To round out her outfit, Markle wore a V-neck sweater, oversized sunglasses, a designer tote bag, and straw hat. Scroll on to shop the look, as well as some of my favorite wide-leg pants and flats for flights.
