Vacation season is already upon us, and everyone’s booking their next out of town trip. Be it a weekend trip to Palawan or a red eye flight to Hong Kong, you’re bound to be in transit for a few hours. Flying is a transitional time where you need to be comfortable, but that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice style. On the contrary, the moment you step off the plane you have places to go and people to see. With this in mind, here are five tips to make your airport getup functional and help you touchdown in style.
Cozy TopsIt’s nice to wear something that will keep you warm when you’re flying thousands of feet off the ground. If you’re spending several hours in the plane, it’s better to go for sweaters, turtlenecks, or knitted tops. Fashion girls Emma Watson, Lily Aldridge, and Jourdan Dunn know this basic tip all too well.
Layers With the varying temperatures you’ll encounter traveling, it’s good to be prepared. Layer up with versatile pieces such as jackets, pullovers, and scarves which can transform your outfit depending on how long your flight is and the climate of your destination. Take cues from airport-chic ladies Jessica Alba, Victoria Justice, and Heidi Klum.
Hand-Carry Bring a spacious bag to keep all your necessities on hand. Especially for long haul flights, you need your makeup bag, gadgets, and sleeping mask ready to grab at a moments notice! You can either take your favorite tote like Miranda Kerr and Kendall Jenner or sling a light backpack like Emma Stone.
OvercoatWho says you have to sacrifice style for comfort? When traveling its essential to be comfortable, but if you have to head to a meeting immediately after landing you need to look better than a PINK track suit. Don a blazer over a button-down like Kate Bosworth and Alexa Chung, or go head-to-toe girl boss a la Victoria Beckham.
Slip On Shoes You don’t want to hold up the queue at airport security trying to lace up those sky high booties or sandals. Wear shoes with enough coverage to keep your toes warm and comfortable enough for all the walking and standing that airports entail. Even celebs like Lily Collins, Pixie Lott, and Emmy Rossum opt for flats.
