Very Classy's Derek Blasberg on how to look like a seasoned traveler at the airport this summer:

Mental State:

With a smile on her face and a zip in her step, a lady is more likely to get that complimentary upgrade.


Sunglasses to cover superficial signs of tiredness are a good idea.


A lady is always on time.

Comfort Clothing:

It's hard to get comfier than a plain white t-shirt (which can be layered) and relaxed jeans. The jacket is tailored and chic, but baggy enough it doesn't constrict movement.


Simple boots that slide on and off — with a bit of a sexy heel ‚ plus no-fuss, easy-to-remove jewelry are a must when you're going through security.
