Packing your suitcase for a holiday is easy but I find it really challenging trying to decide what I am going to wear to the airport.
Comfort and style. Two words you would never usually hear in the same sentence. Flying is uncomfortable and tiresome but you have to remember you are still in public. The amount of times I’ve seen people parading around in tracksuits, onesies and even slippers I just want to scream. I’m not saying we have to go back to the time where your airport look was just as glamorous as the red carpet but please, have some pride – people can see you! This is where the dilemma stems from… is it possible to find the right balance between fashion and comfort?
My classic go-to airport outfit is usually a cute dress teamed with leggings and stylish flats or boots. For extra warmth I throw on a long cardigan or jacket to add some additional layers. I am a great believer that a jacket can change a whole outfit turning a dreary look into something that is timelessly sleek.
One thing that I never travel without is a scarf – a scarf is an essential accessory in my wardrobe within seconds it can transform any dull outfit. They are great for adding texture or colour to an outfit but most importantly it doubles up as a blanket. There is nothing worse than being cold on a long flight. As you can see I have plenty to choose from:
Jeans or leggings are a great staple for any airport outfit, whilst being extremely comfortable the key thing about them is that they will never go out of fashion. If you look at most jetsetter celebrities the majority of them opt to wear classic pieces in dark tones that can be layered to create a warm yet stylish look.
Take a look at these celebrities who have got airport style just right.
Men have travelling fashion SO easy! All they have to do is chuck on a pair of jeans, slim fit t-shirt, a nice jacket and some cool aviator sunglasses. Done. They walk through the airport looking unruffled and stylish.
Hopefully you take inspiration from these celebrities that get their airport fashion right time and time again. One thing I think everyone should remember when choosing your travelling outfit is that the airport isn’t the runway, but you’re not in the comfort of your own home either. Find the balance and KEEP IT SIMPLE. The key to sophistication is simplicity, layer dark tones but make sure you add either texture or a pop of colour to ensure the final outfit isn’t bland.
Whether you are planning a holiday or already have an amazing adventure booked make sure you have a think about what you are going to wear to the airport. Remember that simplicity is key – think comfort mixed with style and please make sure you don’t wear this…
Just one more thing.
