J.Lo Has Been Wearing These 5 Basics to the Airport Since 1997

J.Lo Has Been Wearing These 5 Basics to the Airport Since 1997

We all know Jennifer Lopez can pull off a red carpet statement dress like it’s no one’s business, but she’s also adept in the wardrobe basics department. She may be known for fearlessly experimenting with trends, but when it comes to her airport style, her vibe is much more pared-back, but no less chic, of course.

I pored over vintage J.Lo photos in order to spot themes in her airport outfits, and I came away with five basics she has worn on repeat over the years. Beginning with her ’90s outfits, I noticed that she loves wearing neutrals while traveling—specifically, white jeans paired with cream tops and turtlenecks and coats in rich camel colors. Scroll down to see Jennifer Lopez’s favorite airport basics spanning three decades and shop 2019 versions for yourself.

Photographed in the ’90s, Jennifer Lopez was the epitome of travel-chic in a head-to-toe neutral outfit.

Nicole Kidman's Airport Outfit Will Convince You to Never Travel in Skinny Jeans

Nicole Kidman's Airport Outfit Will Convince You to Never Travel in Skinny Jeans

Clearly, Who What Wear editors love skinny jeans as the next person. We’ve broken down the best It girl–approved ways to wear them, the best brands to buy skinny jeans from, and how to wear them like celebrities. As ubiquitous as they are, however, they are far from the only denim option you need. As Nicole Kidman just proved, a sleek pair of wide-leg jeans are an absolute wardrobe essential—and might even convince you to hold off on your beloved skinny jeans that can feel restrictive on long flights.

Photographed arriving in Sydney, Kidman showed off the ideal airport outfit that struck the perfect balance of polished yet comfortable. Her wide-leg Akris jeans gave her much more breathing room for a flight compared to skinnies, and her brown leather tote and matching shoes were coordinated to perfection. Last but not least, round sunglasses and a straw hat … Read the rest

5 Elegant Airport Outfits From Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, and More

5 Elegant Airport Outfits From Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, and More

When it comes to 2019 airport style, we regularly turn to the likes of Rihanna and Amal Clooney for guidance on what to wear for a trip. But long before they wore heels to LAX or traveled in minidresses, Hollywood icons like Audrey Hepburn and Diana Ross paved the way and practically invented celebrity airport style—and you can bet their travel outfits are still wearable and chic as ever today.

In the ’50s and ’60s, women like Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn, and Jackie Kennedy looked exceedingly polished and sophisticated at the airport, wearing pieces like skirt suits, shift dresses, structured bags, neck scarves, and more. Predictably, ’70s airport style saw the emergence of more laid-back, hippie vibes, like Diana Ross’s amazingly oversize round sunnies. Scroll down to see what Old Hollywood icons wore to the airport and shop 2019 versions.

How 7 Over-50 Celebs Do Summer Airport Style

How 7 Over-50 Celebs Do Summer Airport Style

Airport style is a tricky thing. One one hand, we want to feel as comfortable as possible (easier said than done, especially in the summer). On the other hand, it’s not only about comfort. After all, the airport is a busy place. We see a lot of people while traveling, and a lot of people see us. We need to live up to our fashionable reputation (we like to think we have one), which means a tattered tank top and sweats just won’t do. It’s a fine line, but there’s certainly a balance between feeling comfortable (and cool) and looking stylish. Celebrities strike that balance all the time. In fact, there are a few over-50 celebs who have reduced airport style down to a cold, hard science, and we have the pictures to prove it. Keep scrolling to see how seven over-50 celebs do summer airport style.

Priyanka Chopra Wore the Shoes I Didn't Think to Wear With Sweats at the Airport

Priyanka Chopra Wore the Shoes I Didn't Think to Wear With Sweats at the Airport

When it comes to airport shoes, I’ve learned that celebrities are not just like us. Heels, strappy sandals, and complicated boots abound, most likely because the paparazzi are pretty much unavoidable at major airports. Case in point: Priyanka Chopra arrived at LAX yesterday wearing an outfit that looked airport-friendly on top (a tank, oversize denim jacket, and gray sweatpants), but when my eyes went down to her feet, I was surprised to see that she was wearing high-heeled sock boots—especially since they’re not particularly easy to get on and off.

Obviously, anyone can wear whatever shoes they want to the airport, but if I’m wearing sweatpants or leggings, I always stick to the comfort theme and wear them with sneakers or at least another type of flat shoes. But then again, I’m not photographed when I go to the airport (well, unless I make my husband take my picture … Read the rest

Sorry, But These Airport Outfits Always Make Me Cringe

Sorry, But These Airport Outfits Always Make Me Cringe

As someone who travels a good bit and has a tendency to observe what people are wearing (hey, that’s my job!), I think it’s safe to say I have opinions when it comes to airport outfits (and shoes, as you’ll see here). I’m extremely careful when choosing my airport outfits, as they have to check so many boxes and serve so many purposes, so the topic of what not to wear is something I’ve put quite a lot of thought into.

I do think there’s a happy medium when it comes to airport attire. Obviously, most people wouldn’t dream of wearing some of the getups (e.g., miniskirts, crop tops, high heels, etc.) that celebrities wear to the airport, but I, for one, typically steer clear of outfits that could pass as pajamas. There are a few especially cringeworthy outfits that I repeatedly see in terminals. Read on … Read the rest

Amal Clooney Wore the Shoes You've Always Avoided Wearing to the Airport

Amal Clooney Wore the Shoes You've Always Avoided Wearing to the Airport

Most of us have two main goals when it comes to figuring out what to wear to the airport: finding something that’s comfortable and will get you through security quickly. We’ve broken down airport style in a slew of different ways here at Who What Wear, from what TSA recommends not wearing to the travel basics everyone should own, so it’s safe to say we’ve written about a wide variety of travel outfits. However, Amal Clooney still managed to surprise us with her latest airport look.

Photographed at the airport in Rome, Italy, Clooney wore a head-to-toe designer ensemble, including an Alberta Ferretti Crocheted Virgin Wool Eyelet Minidress ($1750) and Suede Over-the-Knee Boots ($1295). Her ’70s vibe is definitely chic and on trend, but I couldn’t help but notice that over-the-knee boots seem quite impractical for traveling. Have you ever gone to the airport in over-the-knee boots? A quick … Read the rest

Whoa—J.Lo's 1999 Airport Outfit Predicted 3 Massively Popular 2019 Trends

Jennifer Lopez seems to be aging in reverse, so being able to differentiate between a photo of her that was taken decades ago and one that was taken days ago is not an easy feat. (Challenge yourself to that exact feat here.) I’m sure the singer and actress can point to a number of fitness and wellness practices that help her stop time, but today we’re about to share a few of the key fashion items she wore that really have us questioning whether we’re seeing a photo of her from 1999 or 2019.

While doing some image research on Getty, I came across the following image of Lopez stepping off a plane at LAX, and the time stamp stopped me in my scrolling tracks. You see, in the image, Lopez is wearing an outfit—three major trends, in particular—that would be just as stylish had she been … Read the rest
