Whether you’re traveling for fun or for business, we all know the dreaded airport can be. For most of us, it means long lines and plenty of waiting. It also means making sure we look our best in (sometimes) uncomfortable environments where there’s not a ton of privacy. In short, it’s a perfect place to try out new airport fashion trends. But finding the right pieces doesn’t have to be difficult—and they don’t need to break the bank either! Below are some stylish options for the airport and traveling that will make your trips that much more comfortable. Traveling with long layovers at airports can be fun, but also exhausting. Whether you’re traveling alone or with your family, it’s essential to be comfortable while maintaining your fashion sense and style. Here are the top five airport fashion outfits that will help you to look good and feel great during your travel time.
1. Casual but polished
You’ll have many opportunities to flash your fashion sense on a flight or at an airport, but you’ll want outfits that are casual and polished. For example, a bright-colored dress or pantsuit is great for arriving at an airport in style, while jeans and a shirt will do just fine for your flight. A blazer and some jewelry can be key details that make an outfit stand out. It might seem strange, but those little details often give other travelers something new to notice about you when they look at you; it’s fun for them (and for you) when someone notices that cool brooch!
2. Basic black
There is a reason that black is an iconic fashion color. It is timeless and can work for any occasion. You may have even heard that black clothing absorbs light and therefore doesn’t make you look heavier. While that might be a little bit of a stretch, wearing basic black (or anything in black) can make you feel slimmer—which will always make you look better, especially at a time when your appearance could be under extra scrutiny (like at an airport).
3. Bright colours
Bright colors are always a safe bet for the airport. From scarves and sweaters to shoes and bags, you can’t go wrong with fun shades. For example, a bold yellow scarf will make any outfit pop at the airport (and not just because it’s the color of stoplights). It also goes without saying that anything in red is going to get your attention—whether it’s red pants or a bright-red shirt. Red adds some spice and pizzazz that would otherwise be missing from your outfits. Bright colors are big at the airport and even bigger when jetting off on vacation; experiment with different options and see which ones work best for you!
4. Seasonal wear (Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall looks)
It’s true that airport fashion doesn’t have to be complicated. And, it’s okay if you don’t want to worry about what you wear when traveling. But if you do want some travel outfit inspiration, consider picking up a few pieces in seasonal colors for the different seasons. For example, my favorite airport outfits include a cute light sweater and white jeans for the winter months and a cool summer dress with flats for the spring and summer seasons. It’s more fashionable to travel with seasonal clothes because it adds variety to your clothing options (you never know what the weather will be like at your destination). It also allows you get away with wearing less clothing because of the season as well.
6. Cute Luggage
Since airport fashion is about being stylish, but also about functionality, it’s important to have an outfit that makes you feel and look good. Different luggage and bags come in all shapes and sizes. Some are designed to be carry-on only while others can hold a great deal of items and accessories. But whether you choose a small crossbody purse or a large piece of luggage is entirely up to you. For some, having several smaller bags gives them more storage options during travel, while others prefer fewer bags so they don’t overstuff their luggage with items they won’t use once they arrive at their destination. The best part about choosing your style is that there are no wrong answers!
