I Secretly Hate It When Celebs Wear These Flattering Shoes to the Airport

I Secretly Hate It When Celebs Wear These Flattering Shoes to the Airport

Celebrities have a knack for dressing really well at the airport, something I’m constantly trying to decode. I’ve done quite a bit of research on how to mirror their always sleek, never fussy travel ensembles (this nine piece capsule is a great place to start), but every time I come across a celeb wearing a certain shoe style at the airport, it always makes me slightly uncomfortable. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to understand how they can manage to make it through security and trek across the terminal while wearing high stilettos.

Sure, the shoe style is undeniably flattering and makes even a pair of sweats look elevated (Rihanna can attest), but I just can’t imagine that wearing a pair of four-inch (or higher) heels is worth the potential pain. Certainly not when I realize how many shoe alternatives there are that are equally … Read the rest

9 Things We Regret Wearing to the Airport

9 Things We Regret Wearing to the Airport

Collectively as a team of editors, we’ve traveled a ton since the start of 2018. Some of us even hop on more than 30 flights in the span of a year, and others have traveled to over 30 countries. All these in-flight hours have amounted to our team perfecting the art of packing (hello, ever heard of the 54321 trick for packing light?) and the art of the airport outfit—trust us, airport style is a thing. But we couldn’t have gained all our expertise without first practicing some good old trial and error. Speaking of error, don’t forget to check out the three items that travelers pack but never wear. Take it from us, there is a definitive list of items we’ve deemed as the worst airport clothing.

As much as we would love to file those cringe-worthy memories somewhere far, far away, we’re instead … Read the rest

The 5 Most Surprising Items Celebs Have Ever Worn to the Airport

The 5 Most Surprising Items Celebs Have Ever Worn to the Airport

Everyone has their own approach to airport dressing. Some people swear by sweatpants and sneakers, while others prefer to be a bit more dressed up en route to their destination. But celebrity airport style is an entirely different beast. Faced with paparazzi flashbulbs, many celebrities choose to ignore practicality and dress to the nines at the airport, resulting in some seriously surprising travel looks.

Take, for instance, celebrities’ penchant for anything-but-easy footwear, including sky-high stilettos and over-the-knee boots. Can you imagine trying to subtly slip off the unwieldy boots while sitting in coach? I can’t help but picture them spilling into the aisle and tripping up a flight attendant. Scroll down to see the surprising pieces Rihanna, Victoria Beckham, Ashley Graham, and others have worn to the airport, and shop slightly more sensible options. 

I’m sorry—am I the only one who fills her tote bag to the absolute brim while … Read the rest

The Worst Things to Wear to an Airport, According to a TSA Agent

We’re always in pursuit of further refining our ensembles for every destination, whether it’s the airport or the office. And while we’ve done enough traveling to have a general idea of what works and what doesn’t at the airport—those lace-up sandals were awesome until we held up an impatient line of people trying to take them off—we figured there’s still a thing or two we can learn from a true expert. Enter Kimberly Pruitt, a former TSA agent who spent more than five years working as a security officer at Los Angeles International Airport. We sat down with Pruitt to learn the surprising items that always seem to cause an issue when going through security. After you read Pruitt’s tips, we guarantee you’ll rethink your next airport look… After all, no one wants to be the one holding up the security line, right?

7 Airport Shoe "Mistakes" Celebrities Repeatedly Make

7 Airport Shoe "Mistakes" Celebrities Repeatedly Make

Celebrities have very different airport experiences than the rest of us. They often have a VIP escort through the terminals (who also helps with their luggage), get to skip the lines, and are usually nestled comfortably in first class once they reach the plane.

So it’s understandable that they don’t always follow the same set of travel “rules” as we do. One of those rules is traveling in appropriate footwear, but there are a number of airport shoe “mistakes” that celebrities repeatedly make, and their luxurious travel experiences actually kind of allow for it. Sadly, these mistakes should probably be avoided by the rest of us non-celeb travelers.

There are seven airport shoe mistakes (for one reason or another) we constantly see celebrities make. While we’d like to just copy their outfits sans worries, practicality and functionality are key at the airport, when standing in long security lines and … Read the rest
