Airlines With the Best Fashion Sense

The Cabin Crew. Even when you are most disheveled after a red-eye flight, you can count on the cabin crew to look immaculate. No matter how long and turbulent the flight, the traveler can take comfort in a smiling face, in a perfectly pressed suit, ready to deliver a fresh damp cloth or lunch tray. And perhaps, with all the headlines the airlines are making lately, it is well advised that the cabin crew be ready for an unexpected photo or a You-Tube appearance. If the landing strip is the new runway, it is important that the airlines stack up. Here are some of the airlines with the best fashion sense.

Emirates Airlines
Emirates is one example of an airline that knows the importance of a good looking crew. According to flight attendant Maria Pederson, one of the ethnically diverse crew members, “People are really impressed by the way we look. I think it makes us stand out, look professional and well put together.” Flight prep time for this group usually takes about an hour, and little wonder, as there are guidelines for the exact hat position (two fingers width above the eyebrows), the folding and tucking of the scarf, the signature red lipstick, and the grooming (hair cannot touch the shoulders). In addition, flight attendants are restricted from wearing uniforms while off duty, a big Emirates no-no.

Singapore Airlines
The signature “Singapore Girl” uniform has barely been altered in the over 40 years of its existence. After all, what reason would there be for changing something so stylish, iconic, and instantly recognizable? The original, designed by French couture designer Pierre Balmain in 1968, is a take on the “Sarong Kebaya,” featuring the timeless colors and prints of traditional Singapore women’s wear, and a feast of pattern and colors in the friendly skies/

Air Canada Rouge
For a discount airline, these guys have cool uniforms! Check out their tight burgundy tees and gray belted slacks with the knotted print neck scarves. Sort of like “Grease” meets hipster. They also get to wear John Fluevog on their feet. Talk about low budget meets high fashion.

Thai Airways
Always stylish, always elegant, Thai Airlines uniforms give the passenger a taste of Thailand as soon as they board. While flight attendants wear the corporate purple outfits outside the plane, they change into the traditional Thai dress for the flight portion. Pardon us while we change into something a bit more comfortable? While beautiful and colorful in both versions, the passengers are in for an extra treat that may be well worth the price of the flight.

Aeroflot
Although Russia is not always synonymous with fashion, the crisp red caps and angled neckties of the Aeroflot stewardesses may turn that around. Earning a top rating as the world’s most stylish airline from the Skyscanner flight booking website, the Aeroflot cabin crew may be the start of a fashion revolution.

Qantas
Even Miranda Kerr couldn’t resist a chance to model the Quantas collection on the runway. The new design is a study in traditional Quantas ruby red, fuschia, and French navy created by Australian designer Martin Grant. But the absolute must have in this collection? Check out the new Quantas trench coat! You’ll be signing up for the job tomorrow!

Secrets to Looking More Like a “Fashion Girl” – Vine Vera Reviews

In life, there are those who get fashion, and there are some who just don’t. Vine Vera would like to take a look today at what we call the “Fashion Girl”, the girl who seems to always look stunning and seamlessly masters every fashion trend – no matter what. Want to know how you can get the look? VineVera reviews the types of items you should have in your closet to be the ever intriguing fashionista on your block.

Don’t Play By the Rules
Fashion Girls aren’t afraid to delve into the weird, the unknown, and the uncharted territory in terms of patterns and textures. Don’t be afraid to mix the two to find a combination of colors, patterns, and textures that is all your own. Forget what you’ve heard, and try something new, exciting, and different.

Opt for Simplistic Styles
There are certain staple items every girl should have hanging in her closet, or tucked away in her dresser drawers. Some of those items are tees of solid colors and styles to fit your mood for any particular day, tanks of the same, and black slacks or dress pants. These are a must have in order to get dressed in a hurry and when all else fails. Classic solid colored heels or pumps are always a must have as well.

Rock the Tuck
This style is exceptionally fashion forward – tucking your shirt half in, half out has been embraced by Fashion Girls everywhere for its simplistic ability to change the entire look of an outfit while looking classy, stylish, and chic. Don’t be afraid to tuck different areas of your shirt in, while letting the rest hang out. Tucks don’t just apply to the front of the shirt – or even all of it – any longer. Rock the tuck!

Layer Your Look
Just because you have a little black dress hanging in your closet, doesn’t mean it has to be reserved for a special night out – on the contrary, you can layer this dress with a short sleeved white collared shirt to obtain a casual look out of something you never imagined pairing together. The same goes for other shirts, tanks, and dresses. Layer your look to see which looks you love – you never know what your new favorite combo might be until you experiment and try them out!

Add a Belt
Most Fashion Girls have a large belt collection. Why? Well, belts can add that perfect accessory to any outfit, all without being too over the top. You can add them to anything, from dresses, to skirts, to jeans, shorts, and more. Belts can accentuate a small waist and add more hip definition, and also downplay larger hips by the size of the belts used. They can be bright and colorful, or more subtle depending on the look you are going for. Don’t be afraid to wear a belt and really accent your outfit.

Dressy Jeans
Dressing up your favorite pair of jeans is always a Fashion Girl thing to do. Vine Vera suggests pairing a cute pair of jeans with a dressy blouse, adding a nice necklace, some bracelets, and a cute handbag with a pair of pumps to really play up the jean look, resulting in a dressy casual look. Perfect for a lunch date, work on a Friday, or out shopping with friends.
