I’m going to be pretty blunt with you all. I have been raging war against airport fashion since I was ten and saw my fellow children getting on the airplane in pajamas (didn’t they know what my mom said about pajamas not being acceptable in public?!)
That being said, airports are the only place I don’t overdress for. Au contraire, I am probably judging you pretty hard if you wear stilettos to the airport.
My travel outfit is pretty much what I can be most comfortable in without sacrificing personal appearance. For example, sneakers I can get on board with, leggings I cannot.
Uniqlo Leggings Pants. These were a recent addition to my travel wardrobe and I would recommend them to everyone going on a long haul flight. I normally just wear jeans to the airport, but these are so comfortable for those cross-country flights, while looking like jeans! Plus, they’re only $30. You’re welcome.
Nikes. I used to exclusively travel in white lifestyle sneakers (think Chuck Taylors or Stan Smiths), but I’ve been loving the comfort and walkability of Nikes. I have TSA Precheck, so I don’t have to take my shoes off at the airport, but the sock form makes it super easy to slide in and out of if you do!
Cape Scarf or Travel Wrap. I know I’m not the only one out there who gets cold on planes… This travel wrap from Target is absolutely perfect – you can wear it as a scarf or as a cape, and even use it as a blanket!
Layers. Most obviously, I always wear layers I can take on or off, particularly based on the arrival destination. If I’m going somewhere down south, a t-shirt will be perfect for the warm sunshine waiting!
