After more time of being confined to where we live than we’d like to acknowledge, many of us have flights booked and travel on the docket again. That means that 2022 is (finally!) going to have more “out of office” Slack statuses and hopefully even a few airport outfits to consider.
The phenomena of the airport outfit isn’t anything new—celebs have been treating airports as photo ops since forever and created a whole new genre of outfits in the meantime (We can’t tell you the number of times we’ve put on a baseball hat and athleisure outfit and thought to ourselves, “hm, I kind of look like a celebrity at the airport). Comfort certainly is the main priority in any travel ensemble, but looking chic and cool is a close #2 (After all, who doesn’t like to put their headphones in and pretend they’re a movie character when they’re traveling?).
Ready to upgrade your airport outfits and feel like an off-duty model on their way to a tropical vacation? Same—and these 10 products will get you there.
Airport attire really only has one true rule: Closed-toed shoes are the only choice for a plane ride. We always opt for a pair of sneakers for travel days, but lacing and unlacing a pair can get tedious when you're going through security. The answer to our woes? This comfy meets chic zip-up pair. These athletic sneaks are the perfect addition to any of your travel outfits, and the zip-up feature makes them easy to throw on and off no matter what your travel plans include.
Chances are, at some point in your trip, you're going to want a hat (be it for a less-than-ideal hair day or a sunny beach day). Rather than packing it, wearing it for your flight is ideal. Not only will it add to your "celeb hiding from paparazzi" vibe, but it'll also allow you to feel a bit more put-together for the entire day of traveling.
The jeans-vs.-leggings plane debate runs deep, but if you're someone who wants to opt for jeans instead of leggings or sweats on a plane, make sure they're comfortable. This relaxed, looser pair is perfect both for a day of travel and for styling on your trip.
The first step to feeling like that girl while traveling? Keeping your things organized. Rather than throwing everything into a bag willy-nilly (guilty), opt for these nifty mesh bags and designate each with a theme. One for chargers, one for beauty products, one for your travel documents—you get the jist. The best part? You'll be able to clearly see what's in each one without sifting through it.
