There’s something about spying people’s airport style that’s oddly satisfying as far as fashion goes. I think it’s because travel looks run the gamut of ultra glamorous for some to super casual for others and everything in between. Whatever your style, it is possible to look polished without compromising on comfort and bring the kind of sartorial A-game that would be worthy of being papped for a magazine. When it comes to your ensemble when you’re en route to a fabulous new destination, keep the following things in mind…
Invest in comfortable footwear
We’re in the golden era of practical, comfortable footwear where a pair of sneakers is considered the height of fashion. Invest in a great pair of on trend kicks and you’re not only going to be able to maneouevre your way around an airport in style, you’ll be supremely comfy while doing it.
Go for black
The shortcut to chic whilst flying? An all black ensemble. It’s the international code for “I’ve got my style game sorted” and it hides all manner of sins while traveling. Having a go-to flying outfit in dark shades such as black is a must.
A chic coat or jacket
Whether it’s making your way through the terminal or settling in for a long haul flight, airports and planes can get a little chilly so it pays to have a nice coat or jacket with you when you travel. Don’t be afraid to go beyond black and opt for a standout colour or fun print.
Stock up on cosy separates
When travelling, separates in all natural fabrics are the ideal option. Plus when you’re stuck on a plane for hours, there’s nothing better suited for the occasion than comfortable, breathable lounge wear to deal with the fluctuating temperatures. Wearing separates also makes it easy to incorporate them back into your trip wardrobe once you’ve landed.
Have a beautiful tote
A roomy bag to carry all your essentials is a must when travelling. Go for something that’s a good quality and will house all you need, but is also stylish enough that it can be your carryall throughout your trip. You get bonus points if you travel with quality luggage.
Always pack great sunnies
When you’re traversing different time zones you can often find yourself landing and departing at ungodly hours so a good pair of sunglasses is a necessity. A plain black pair is a great option, as they’re classic and versatile.
