Imagine wearing your Sunday clothes to the airport. It might take you through security but it certainly won’t be giving a good first impression when you reach your destination, after all that will be the first outfit worn by you there. In today’s time, we need to give our travel looks as much attention as any special occasion and put in extra effort for airport style.
This certainly doesn’t mean that you need to get your party dresses out because a perfect airport look is the one that not only makes sense when you reach your destination but also make you feel comfortable during your 2 hr or 12 hr journey.
Whenever choosing an airport-friendly outfit, make sure to strike a balance of functional and chic which surely makes athleisure a fail-proof formula for travel look. Following the footsteps of Tiffany Wang (@tiffwang_ ) and Annabelle Fleur (@vivaluxuryblog), elevate your basic leggings by teaming them with graphic sweatshirt or a crop top and statement layer and finish off with sneakers for added comfort and coolness.
If athleisure is not your thing, then there’s another way to amp your airport style. Take inspiration from Deepika Padukone and play around with your wardrobe basics i.e. pair your everyday t-shirt and flared denim with a classic trench or a silk robe and a smart pair of flats.
You can even take your favourite midi dress for a spin around airports, just like Laura Noltemeyer (@designdschungel), or opt for easy to style and high on comfort co-ord sets like Sonam Kapoor. And if nothing strikes a chord with you, then there’s six yards of chicness to your rescue as nothing is more functional or elegant than a sari and even, Kangana Ranaut believes this. After sorting out your outfit, remember to accessorize with minimal jewellery and a classic tote.
So, next time, before taking your Uber for the airport, make sure your airport look is on point and that it will let you travel in style without compromising on comfort.
