Spring has (finally!) sprung – which means Spring Break is just around the corner. But in between the stress of finishing work, booking your flight, and packing your suitcase, you still have one crucial decision to make: What will you wear on the plane?

Whether your flight is two hours long or ten, you’ll want to make sure you’re comfortable; stiff seats and air conditioning on high blast are only some of the problems you’ll want to be prepared to face.

Where would a girl be without her trusty cardigan? Sweaters like these aren’t just an adorable layer; they can also double as blankets on a cold flight or pillows on a red-eye. Pick your favorite from the ones below – or grab more than one, just in case!
