Figuring out what to wear to the airport can be a total mind-boggle.
After all, you want to make sure you’re feeling as comfortable as possible for those pesky long-haul flights, but you also want your outfit to reflect your personal style and stand out amongst a sea of fellow fashionistas—am I right?
Either way, not to worry—I’ve got you covered. Here’s how to travel in style with these 3 trusty airport looks.
1. Cozy and Casual
First up, if you’re flying halfway across the globe then functional clothing is naturally going to be your priority over fashion-forward pieces. That said, who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? Exactly—nobody.
Leggings and a sweatshirt is often a style maven’s go-to look for plane travel. However, if your final destination is going to be a little chilly, you can put a contemporary spin on your ensemble with a branded puffer jacket, chunky sneakers, and luxury tote handbag.
And the finishing touch? Add your oversized sunglasses for a captivating, celeb-worthy look.
2. Tracksuit Delight
Another sassy yet practical outfit for traveling is the two-piece tracksuit. However, I’m not talking about just any tracksuit—I’m talking about a pretty printed tracksuit.
Me, personally? I love a good floral print with a dark-hued background in a relaxed fit co-ordinated with designer accessories. You could also go with polka dots, stripes, geometrics, checks, or a paisley print to make maximum impact.
Either way, do you know what the best part is? A tracksuit is just as cozy as it is stylish for hours spent lounging around in First Class. Win-win.
3. Classic Chic
Finally, every traveler knows that you’re going to want to layer up for your upcoming flight. Why? Well, one minute it’s warm in the airport and the next minute it’s freezing on the actual journey. (Thanks, plane air conditioning!)
If you’re only flying short-haul, heading away for business, or just want to go for a dressier airport look, opt for tailored pants and shirt combination in neutral colors—like beige, taupe, caramel, cream, or tan. Then finish it off with a timeless Mac trench coat in the classic beige hue. Now, that’s what I call tres chic!
Whether you decide to add sneakers, sandals, or flats to this aesthetic, you’re guaranteed to attract compliments.
Capturing Effortless Airport Style
Contrary to popular opinion, it is possible to find airport outfits that allow you to look and feel amazing in preparation for your plane journey. Just throw on what suits you and let key pieces stand out and do the talking. It’s as simple as that.
Also, be sure to keep accessories minimal. I mean, it’s important to feel free and unrestrained for long periods of sitting.
Either way, effortless airport style is just around the corner—you’ve just got to be brave enough to go for it. Happy travels, ladies!
