My airport style has gone through several phases over the years. I’ve done the fussy-fancy looks that were uncomfortable. I’ve done the super comfortable but not so chic looks. My airport outfit now? It’s just right. Equal parts comfortable and stylish. In today’s post, I’m sharing the spring version of that look.
What I’m wearing:
Sharp joggers as a base
I’m a huge fan of the loungewear trend because it has prompted the market to reimagine the options. The result? Super chic pieces that are also comfortable. The base of my best airport outfits is alway a jogger set. The one I’m wearing is an old style from Zara. The top is an oversized v-neck shirt, and the drawstring pants have a tapered ankle. Worn together, they look like a comfy-chic jumpsuit. I own it in 2 colors–black and white.
Toppers for function and style
Airport temperature is always out of our control. It’s almost always freezing too. So, layering is a must. For spring travel, I’m choosing lightweight jackets, like this light blue jacket. And, get this? This blazer feels so luxurious, it has a right-on-trend silhouette, but it’s under $35! When it’s the colder season, I take my overcoat (seen before here) in lieu of a light jacket for added warmth.
Scarves can be signature and multi-purpose
We already agree that unpredictable temperature calls for layering. Scarves are also must then. They add signature touches to your overall look, and they can double as important covers. I added a silky scarf to my spring airport outfit. When it’s colder, I take something closer to a blanket scarf that can literally double as a blanket in transit.
Sneakers have become my go-to smart shoe choice for travel. In this look, I’m wearing my old favorite jute sneakers from Superga. Mine were from Soft Surroundings, but Express is carrying the exact same style this year. I often reach for my Nike trainers when I expect to do a lot of walking while in transit.
