Hello there 🙂
I have had the privilege of traveling frequently to work and have fun over the years. However, there are some people love Fly, I'm not one of them. Fear city here. However, what I enjoy is making the perfect travel look. And I think I cracked the code for the ideal airport outfit thanks to my regular travel plan.
What matters are ensembles that are comfortable yet fashionable. I like to think about it like this: If I didn't wear the outfit directly from the plane to an activity, it wouldn't be for me. No, that clearly does not mean that it is a complete outfit of stiff jeans, a button-down and boots, but a look that is composed of cozy basics that are still elevated.
While I recently highlighted the carry-on bags that I will be using and that I will not be using, I thought that next time I would take the time to think about the basics I am doing and not to carry them to ensure that my travel outfits are comfortable and cool. So, without further ado, scroll down to read my airport style guide – and buy the staples that are ideal for every jet setter.
It may seem like a no-brainer, but complicated boots that lace up to the stop are an absolute must to travel effortlessly. I prefer flatter black boots that are easy to put on and take off. Also note that I choose boots when I'm on a short flight and need a sophisticated but practical shoe selection when I get off the plane and go straight to an event or meeting.
On the other hand, when I do am When I choose sneakers – a must for longer flights – I always wear slippers. Usually, these are classic vans because they are cool (retro-style in this way) and also the most comfortable. While I don't usually slip off my shoes on a plane, sometimes it's a must for these extra long trips.
You won't find me in stiff, stiff denim on any flight. To be honest, it feels miserable when you're so tight. For reasons of convenience, I tend to stick with my elastic tube or straight leg jeans. While I don't usually like leggings or sweats, I went this route for super long-haul flights.
I am quite picky about the tops I will wear when traveling. Given the fact that planes are usually quite cool (but can also happen to get warm), stratification is key. For me, that means a soft t-shirt with a cozy crewneck sweatshirt. The mood is basically like in your pajamas (but not). You will never find me in uncomfortable shirts that are too complicated (like customized button-downs).
I prefer to avoid super-heavy coats unless I am traveling in a completely cool place. They get annoying when it comes to storage (especially when there is no space above your head) and they are not ideal for wrapping up when it gets cold on the plane. They are bulky and I often get too hot. It's about lighter silhouettes like camouflage jackets or leather styles that match a trendy airport look.
