When it comes to airport fashion, comfort is key. After all, not only will you be sitting in your seat for hours, you will have to go through several pesky security checks as well.
However, this doesn’t mean you have to limit your travel style to just a generic gray tracksuit. The sky is the limit when it comes to travel outfits, which can definitely make you feel like you’re flying first class! You can start your summer trip stylishly by taking a cue from these jet-setting celebrities:
Olivia Culpo’s travel outfits prove that you can balance comfort and style. MODE’s most beautiful woman in the world for 2016 shows us how it’s done by wearing fitted joggers — a much more appealing alternative to sweatpants — while on her way to catch a flight. Similarly, you too can try this cozy but chic look with some straight-leg knit pants from Woman Within. Plus, wearing these pants will make it easier for you to relax on the plane no matter how much legroom you have.
Switch up your usual hooded sweater for a trendy kimono. Academy-award winning actress Halle Berry looked lovely at the airport, as she donned a soft silk version of this robe. The best part of wearing one is that it’s a statement piece. You can have the most basic attire underneath and your kimono or silk robe will still make your outfit appear striking. So, take your cue from Halle Berry and throw on this dark paradise velvet kimono from Free People.
Make the airport your runway by rocking a pair of slip-on sneakers. To make your trip to the terminal much smoother, Transportation Security Administration spokesperson Lisa Farbstein shares her footwear suggestions, saying that sneakers that you can slip on and off, or even Velcro sneakers, as long as they don’t take too long to remove are the best option. You can take notes on how to incorporate these shoes into your airport looks from Jessica Alba. The actress and founder of the multimillion-dollar wellness brand, The Honest Company, loves wearing a smart pair of white slip-on sneakers when she flies.
Who doesn’t love a good pair of jeans? They’re comfortable, classy, and a closet staple, but that doesn’t mean you have to blend in with the busy crowd at the airport. With the array of designs out there, you can choose the right fit and color to make your jeans stand out from the sea of denim. As one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses, Margot Robbie doesn’t shy away from spicing things up by selecting a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans for her travels. With their loose fit, boyfriend jeans are a great option for wherever you’re flying, too. This pair of mid-rise boyfriend jeans from KUT from the Kloth can help you emulate Margot’s relaxed but tailored look.
If there’s one star you can totally trust for sartorial advice, it’s supermodel Gigi Hadid. Not only has Gigi walked down countless runways, she has also been up and down airport aisles so many times, as she travels around the world to fashion capitals like Paris and Milan. Follow her lead by accessorizing with a sophisticated crossbody bag. It isn’t just a pretty place to keep your travel essentials, but it’s a convenient accessory as well, since it gives you the option of going hands-free. On top of your outfit getting that extra oomph, you’ll also be able to breeze through the airport checkpoints — in style, of course.
