You made it: Thanksgiving break is officially here. Chances are you're probably headed home this week, and whether that means taking a plane, bus, train, car, or magic carpet (hey, a girl can dream), you're in for at least a few hours on the go. If you're sick of the old leggings-and-sweatshirt routine, there's a new set of comfy styling tips ideal for trying out this week. Take your cues from Ella's borrowed-from-the-boys vibe, and prepare for a little airport paparazzi-this outfit screams It girl.

Layer up.
A V-neck sweater layered over a loose gingham button-down has a casual Friday vibe that's perfect for hours on a plane. Pop off the sweater and roll up the sleeves if you're warm, or keep the combo as is to stay cozy.

Bet on the boyfriend fit.
Why would you ever make yourself travel in too-tight skinny jeans? Not only is an exaggerated fit flattering, it's also super comfortable for a day on the road. Picking out your first pair? Keep these tricks in mind.

Ankle boots are better.
If knee-high riding boots are your cross-country standby, it's time for an intervention. Replace 'em with a lower silhouette, and let your legs have room to breathe. Uncomfortable calves pretty much guarantee a cranky mood-and that's the last thing you need.
