There’s a lot of reasons why we want to throw on a pair of sweatpants when we fly; it’s the obvious choice. They’re comfortable, warm (it can get freezing on planes!), and easy to move around in. The last thing we want to deal with when going through security is a fussy outfit. But why wouldn’t you want to arrive at your final destination in style?
You may not ditch the sweatpants altogether, but these fabulous celebs will probably make you rethink that choice, wherever your next trip may take you. No one’s saying you gotta wear six-inch heels and a full face of makeup, but gorgeous people like Emily Ratajkowski or Rihanna give us tons of inspiration for a plane-friendly style that’s just as easy to throw on as sweatpants.
This blonde babe has been seen waltzing through the airport in a super-cute, comfortable outfit. Jeans + leather jacket= genius. The leather jacket isn’t so heavy that you’ll be sweating it out while running to catch your plane, but it’s just enough of a layer that you won’t need one of those weird packaged blankets they sometimes give out. Plus, jeans can be just as comfortable as sweatpants if you invest in the right pair. Stay away from anything too tight to keep this outfit breezy and chic.
You may remember her from The Hills and nothing else, but she’s onto something when it comes to wearing layers while on the go. A chunky scarf can prevent an outfit from looking too sloppy, and you can wear it as a shawl when temperatures drop. Otherwise, pile it around your neck to make whatever you’re wearing, even sweatpants and flip-flops, look like an outfit worthy of paparazzi pics.
Leave it to a supermodel to make a graphic tee shirt look like the most stylish thing you can own. When paired with a long coat, it’s a *lewk* instead of appearing dumpy. She keeps her accessories simple to make the whole outfit streamlined, which is precisely what you want for an early flight. The structured bag pulls the entire thing together to say “why yes, I did wake up like this, and I look awesome.”
Sometimes it’s worth it to go the extra mile with your outfit when you’re traveling, And Rosie shows us how to do it. It’s all about the accessories– pair a basic top with jeans, a simple pair of sunglasses, some tiny jewelry, a hat, and a walkable pair of boots and you’re set to go. It doesn’t take much more thought than those sweatpants you initially wanted to reach for but looks way cuter.
All black everything is the way to go when you’re headed to the airport. Keep things interesting with a pop of color. Gigi wears a beanie here to keep any hair disasters under wraps, so girls who didn’t have time to shower: take note. Wear with chunky flat boots to bring the whole outfit together, and you’ll look like a supermodel yourself. The Louis Vuitton luggage is optional.
Going someplace extra cold and need to look great in a hurry? Throw on a huge, furry coat and use that as your statement accessory. It’s easy to take on and off when going through security, so you have yourself a hassle-free outfit. Keep everything else monochromatic, so the jacket becomes the star of the show. With a bulky coat like this, you’ll want to keep everything else super formfitting, so you don’t look like a hot mess.
This girl makes sporty-chic look like the exact outfit you would want to wear to stay comfortable on a long flight. I’m not usually a fan of the bike shorts trend, but when worn with a trendy turtleneck, backpack, and sneakers, it’s the perfect look. Keep everything in the same color family to fly under the radar, but look good while doing so.
