8 Airport Outfits That Take Flying In Style To New Heights

These fashion-forward 'fits absolutely go the distance.

Style

As most countries around the world begin to reopen their borders, it's finally time to break free of the global restraints brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether a tropical vacation or a European excursion, planning a trip can feel a bit overwhelming especially when it comes to planning your day-to-day outfits. As I gear up to take the biggest solo trip of my life thus far, I’m getting a head start on stylish looks I can wear from beginning to end. Of course, one of the most important aspects of a trip is traveling to your destination, so I’m getting a head start on the major inspiration that will keep me both chic and comfy during my dreaded 10-hour flight.


Practical choices such as sneakers, crossbody bags, and minimal (to no) accessories are key to a seamless in-flight experience. Along with the right essentials, showing the least amount of skin possible also elevates my comfort level. Catching both flights and hopefully feelings this year, these are the eight airport-approved ensembles that will keep you looking fresh off the runway. Whether going for an elevated approach or casual cool, keep scrolling to find the fashion-forward looks that can go the distance.

1.Color-Blocked Comfort

If 2022 has taught me anything so far, it’s to always wear a pop of color to brighten up my day. I love this mix: the color-blocked bright green-and-blue oversized knit top with the dark gray cargo sweatpants for the ability to move about comfortably. Adding a platform boot is the final touch to this cozy utilitarian vibe.

2.Track Pants...But Make It Sexy

No matter the season, track pants are always a good look with a matching bodysuit. Keeping warm, the addition of this trend-forward green-and-cream printed jacket perfectly combines both comfort and style. Add a sneaker to this look and you're cleared for the touchdown.

3.A Chic Combo Upgrade

Two items you can never go wrong wearing on a flight are tights and an oversized blazer, even better when worn together. A look that can never miss, this black-on-black outfit says chic from head to toe. Loving these bold designer platform sneakers along with a multifunctional Prada crossbody bag. These are the final touches that give life to this aspirational airport look.

4.Puffer Fab For Take Off

My newfound love for puffer vests runs deep and what better occasion than to consider for my travels. Along with the layering factor, it can also double as a much-needed cushion when assigned to a window seat or even better when laying in first class. Worn atop a long-sleeve button-down and wide-legged pants, this comfy relaxed fit is one we all need in our lives.

5.Brightly Hued Sweats

For minimal effort and maximum style, I’m here for this color-blocked sweatsuit. For a fashionable yet casual moment, this is perfect for those of us who love color just as much as comfort. Paired with a matching sneaker and neutral longline puffer coat, this look is cold-weather approved near home or abroad.

6.Match It Up

Matching sets are always a good idea for travel especially for those of us that tend to catch our flight just as the attendants are calling for final boarding. For a neutral combination, this on-the-go choice is cool-girl-approved as well as hassle-free. Wearing a crossbody mini bag, this is a compact choice for IDs, passports, and credit cards keeping them closely secured and easily accessible.

7.Subtle & Classic Pairings

A minimalist approach to airport style, this classic white on black pairing is versatile as you can immediately start your trip as soon as you land without having to change your clothes. Instead of restrictive and sometimes painful denim jeans, trousers are always a good alternative. Keeping it modern, a classic ribbed knit is super sleek layered underneath an oversized button down long sleeve. For a subtle jewelry addition, complete this outfit with stacked gold necklaces for a look that's giving both on and off the plane.

8.Serving Body Con

When in the mood for an effortless choice with a feminine flair, a long-sleeved stretchy bodycon midi dress is a great staple to have on standby. This particular style can be worn with a variety of accessories to achieve limitless looks, especially when traveling. For a casual take, wear this with a boot or sneaker along with a crossbody bag for top-tier functionality.

Mother To Mother: 6 Things I Wish I Knew Before Having A Child

Before giving birth to my child two-and-a-half years ago, I was one of those women who thought I’d have the basics of child-rearing down. After all, I was in the fourth grade when my brother was born and spent much of my adolescence helping my parents take care of him. My experience with children increased even more when I became an aunt eight times over. I regarded motherhood as something I didn’t have total knowledge of but suspected I wouldn’t be too far off the mark when the time came for me to have a child of my own. Little did I know that there was no amount of practice that could prepare me for what was ahead.
