Comfort always comes first while traveling. No matter how stylish an airport outfit may be, if it’s even the least bit restricting or uncomfortable, it’s likely that you’ll regret wearing it on an international (or even cross-country) flight. That’s why our rule is as follows: If an outfit won’t allow you to sit comfortably for hours at a time without fidgeting and counting the minutes until arrival, then it’s not the right outfit. Similarly, if an outfit won’t allow you to comfortably, albeit stressfully, speed walk through a major airport due to a last-minute gate change, then it’s not the right outfit (because traveling almost never goes according to plan) either.
Luckily, comfort and style aren’t mutually exclusive, which world-traveling celebrities have proven time and time again. Influencers like Chiara Ferragni, Aimee Song, and Danielle Bernstein have also proven that, and it’s high time we get them the props they deserve for putting together expert-level airport outfits. Keep scrolling to see the 16 items It girls always wear to the airport.
Mega-blogger Chiara Ferragni is constantly jet-setting around the globe, particularly between Italy and the U.S. Her expert airport style is exemplified by this comfortably chic outfit, which consists of sneakers, white denim culottes, and a baby blue T-shirt. It’s so simple yet casually elegant, too.
Here’s another one of Ferragni’s best airport outfits. She pairs a sleek pair of black skinny jeans with a graphic tee and a leather jacket. It’s casual, it’s comfortable, and it’s rock ‘n’ roll chic.
It girl Aimee Song knows the equation for the perfect airport outfit. A blazer and bike shorts make up a functional and fashionable travel outfit that’s fit for all the warm summer days ahead.
It’s no secret that we love a good monochromatic outfit, and Song’s matching neutral-toned jacket and joggers are no exception. It looks both insanely cool and insanely comfortable.
Overalls are so comfortable and so low-maintenance, which makes them the ideal airport outfit. Danielle Bernstein of We Wore What wears a summery gingham print. The exact pair she’s wearing is currently sold out, but luckily there are other similar pairs we can shop.
Another airport outfit, another black leather jacket. We love how Bernstein paired hers with black skinny jeans (just like Ferragni’s aforementioned outfit), as well as a black wide-brimmed hat. The hat might not be super comfortable to wear while in the close quarters of a plane, but it will disguise messy travel-day hair while you’re walking around the airport.
Camila Coelho rolls up to the airport wearing a teddy coat over a cropped hoodie and black sweatpants. It’s an extremely glamorous yet comfortable airport outfit.
For a lightweight airport outfit, try Coelho’s cropped tee and oversize joggers combo. Note the iconic Dior tote bag, which every fashion It girl loves to use as a carry-on.
