Comfy but chic: Airport outfit essentials and inspo

In today’s generation where OOTDs are a thing, upping your fashion game is a must, no matter where you’re going. And yes, that includes the in-betweens in your travels—meaning, your time at the airport. While looking perfect while you’re on the go seems like such an effort, it’s actually pretty easy to stay chic yet comfy at the same time. All you need for that perfect airport getup are these staples which marry comfort and style. With these travel outfit essentials and inspiration, you’ll be strutting in style at the airport runway in no time.

Plain shirt/tank top/crop top

Among the airport outfit essentials is either a plain shirt, tank top, or crop top. After all, keeping it casual and comfy is still the key. The most common colors people go for are plain white, grey, and black. You can opt to wear a baggy top or go for the knotted shirt trend. If you want to add some oomph, a crop top can do the trick.

Jeans/leggings/jogging pants

Since you’ll be out and about, a pair of jeans, leggings, or jogging pants is your safest bet for an airport outfit. Ripped jeans are still in, while leggings are the no. 1 choice if comfort is your priority. If the athleisure trend is what you’re after, your favorite baggy sweatpants will come in handy.

Sneakers/rubber shoes/boots/flats

Still keeping with the comfy but chic theme, pairing your top and bottom with stylish sneaks will add some swag to your airport look. Girly pastel sneakers which are popular now is the best way to make your getup stand out. But you can also go for the classic white rubber shoes. If you’re not a sneakers kind of girl though, boots or closed shoes/flats are your other options.

Stylish jacket/cardigan/trench coat/poncho/scarf

An airport getup will never be complete without something to cover you up in those cold flights or even freezing airports. The choices here are abundant–from denim to sporty jackets, long cardigans, hoodies, and so much more. That added layer doubles the comfort and style.


An alternative to the usual shirt and pants getup, tracksuits are now worn virtually everywhere, including airports. While it scores big in the comfort factor, the sporty style may not be for everyone.
