My mother always loves to tell this story about a flight she took with her friend and how her outfit made all the difference. She decided to don a Navy blue dress, cute pumps, and do up her hair, while her friend opted for the ‘I rolled out of bed’ sort of a look. While both of the woman were the same age, my mother was constantly asked by the stewardess if she needed anything, and almost ignored her friend! Airport style may be different from the by gone Pan Am days, but dressing for success always applies when traveling. So keep it cute, keep it comfy and read on to see the perfect airport outfit for you!
Outfit Number One
When it comes to traveling, it is all about the layering. From the car, to the terminal, to the plane, you’ll be experiencing a variety of temperatures ranging from sweating to shivering. This look prepares you for this by layering a light Peter Pan collar blouse, with black jeans, and a cozy sweater. For accessories keep the jewelry to a minimum with earrings and shades, and keep the comfort with a pair of flats. As for a carry on, I love how this black tote pulls the outfit together.
Outfit Number Two
This look is a bit of trendy, but keeping the comfort factor as well. Starting with a high low white skirt, a black t-shirt, and topping it off with a belt. For accessories, these sandals add a bit of excitement to the outfit, pairing with a messenger bag, and a pair of sunnies.
Outfit Number Three
This last look features a dress that is all about chic, and comfort! A black maxi dress is wonderful for traveling as it can be worn and re-worn multiple times on a trip. Starting with the dress, add a fun tribal scarf, sandals and keep a cardigan in case it gets cold on the plane! For accessories try a pop of color with this satchel and a fun boho braid in your hair!
Keep in Your Carry-On
- Magazines & Books: Whether you’re flipping through your new Vogue or Cosmo, or the best summer Beach Read, reading material is a must have for a trip!
- Touch Up Makeup Bag: To keep a fresh face during your flight, a bit of liner, mascara, powder foundation, under eye concealers are a necessary!
- A Pair of Cozy Socks: If you’re wearing an outfit that doesn’t pair well with socks, traveling with a super pair of cozy socks is so necessary!
- Oil Blotting Papers: Keep away that shine for a fresh face.
