Get the Look: Airport Style

Get the Look- Airport Style

Left Outfit: Target Cardigan, Old Navy Floral Tank, Zara Jeans, Topshop Studded Loafers, Incoco Nail Strips
Right Outfit: Pink Cardigan, H&M Tank, Forever 21 Jeans, Target Striped Flats, Sally Hansen Nail Strips

Since I’ll be getting on a plane in the next couple of days, I thought it would be fun to create some looks based on what I like to wear to the airport.  Even though these outfits fall into two different style categories (the left look is more trendy, while the right look is more classic), they both have the same basic items.

1. Lightweight Cardigan: Perfect to layer on in the chilly airport and lightweight enough not to take up a ton of room in your carry-on.

2. Flowy Tank: I like to be as comfortable as possible when I’m flying and not feel restricted (I’m restricted enough by those cramped airport seats!), so a flowy tank is perfect for a cute, yet comfortable look.

3. Skinny Jeans: I tend to get cold on airplanes so I like to keep my legs covered in a pair of skinny jeans.  It doesn’t hurt either that my favorite pair of jeans are sooo comfy!

4. Flats: Flats are so key when you’re traveling. They’re easy to slip on and off for airport security and they won’t slow you down when you’re running through the airport to catch your connecting flight!

5. Nail Polish: You guys know I’m almost never without nail polish on my fingers and these nail polish strips are a fun alternative.  Plus, I’m thinking that since the strips are made to last longer, I won’t have to worry about chipping my nails when I’m handling my luggage.

Tell me: What do you like to wear when you travel?

    these are perfect for long flights. A cardi is a must. I always get cold on planes.

    • Yes, me too! They also keep the temperature way down in airports and airplanes!

  • Such cute looks! Love those mint pants, especially with the yellow!

    I definitely love skinnies and a cardigan and if I’m on a plane I like to carry a scarf which can act as a blanket and something to keep me warm yet stylish too:)

    I’m usually a jeans, singlet & jumper girl on looooong flights, but on the hour/two hour flights to nearby cities, I wear heels just because I wear them all the time and I don’t feel like I have to change what I’m wearing to suit so much..

    • That makes sense if you are used to heels all the time! For me, I’m often flying from coast to coast and I just can’t manage as well in heels as I can in flats :)

    Definitely something with leggings for me. Because I hate sitting for hours and hours. I need something stretchy :)

    • Ugh, I know, I get so stiff on those cramped little seats! Stretchy is definitely good :)

  • Love those minty jeans! AND I just bought some yellow polish and I’m loving it for summer! :)

    • Ooo- fun! I’d love to see your yellow polish if you end up posting pics :)
