Everyone travels differently, that much is certain and there is no wrong or right way of traveling, especially when it comes to looks. Each of us have our own unique style and preferences. Some like to feel comfortable while some want to look chic. In this collaborative post, we ask 5 of our fellow female travel and lifestyle bloggers what their ideal airport travel style looks are and how they manage to pull it off.
My airport style is super casual but chic. Whether it’s a 2 hour trip (which always ends up being more) or a day-long journey, I prefer removing all my makeup when I travel. I always coordinate my outfits to the amount of makeup I’m putting on. This is natural to me as a makeup artist.
If it’s minimal, then my outfit needs to coordinate, plus it has to be comfy for travel. I’m not trying to impress no one, but at the same time I’m trying to show the world how chic casual can be.

Over the years, my sense of style has evolved from chic to comfortable. When it comes to airport clothing, I usually wear the same thing on all my flights – a pair of tights with a super long tank top. However, depending on my destination, I carry a jacket, a soft scarf, socks, and a pair of footwear.
If I’m flying to or from a colder place, then of course the jacket is a thicker one and the choice of footwear is comfortable flat booties. I always wear booties that are easy to remove at the security check. If I’m flying to or from a hot destination, it changes to a thin jacket and flip flops. Yes, I always carry a jacket, a scarf and a pair of socks for my flight because it tends to get cold. I don’t always have a room after or before a flight so the long tank top can turn into a tunic dress without the tights if it’s too hot.
I have never gone wrong with this outfit because it can be layered and customized according to the temperature and the situation.

My airport style usually is a black pair of jeans or leggings and a T-shirt. I tend to drop food or spill something when I am on my flights, so the black always conceals my mess The T-shirt is usually something that is a bit loose. And I always have a hoodie in my carry-on. Some flights get a bit too chilly for me!
Now my shoes, this changes depending on how long my flight is. If it’s a short flight, I will usually wear my booties or sneakers. If it’s a long flight, I wear my UGGS. I bought them specifically for long haul flights. They are like slippers and have room for when your feet start to swell a little.
