It’s the internal battle we’ve all had to deal with: to look cute and chic at the airport, or to be comfortable on the plane. Admit it, you’ve thought about it too. Is looking adorable while walking to your gate worth sacrificing comfort while in the air? This week’s Fashionista shows us we don’t always have to compromise when it comes to airport fashion.
?Sweatpants are abandoned for fitted jeans, while a shapeless sweatshirt is left behind for a draped, oversized Free People t-shirt; the soft fabrics make this outfit incredibly comfortable, but this Fashionista manages to maintain her personal style and show off her figure. And since security is usually a huge factor in putting together an outfit for the airport, complicated shoes with laces or buckles are definitely not a good idea, especially in those crowded security lines. This Fashionista ops for Jack Rogers sandals instead, a perfect balance between comfortable and functional. But to top if all off, aviator glasses are a must. Not only do they fit perfectly into this outfit’s aviation theme, but they make it a whole lot easier to look out the window when jetting off into the sunset!
HINT: Anti-wrinkle fabrics are definitely something to consider when planning an outfit for a long flight. Some materials to stay away from are polyester and cotton; cotton is the fabric most susceptible to wrinkling, especially on dresses. Prints are also a wise choice; they hide any small wrinkles that may appear much better than a solid colored dress. Try this printed peach dress from Modcloth, perfectly wrinkle-free for a journey to your tropical paradise. You may want to think about fabrics like wool and other knits; this sweater dress from Madewell is perfect for flying to those blustery getaways. The fabric is resistant to wrinkles, and the bold stripes will be sure to turn heads while strutting to your departure gate!
