May 17th, 2017 at 2:00am

It’s every college student’s favorite time of year: the end of the semester! Now that school is finally out for the summer, students everywhere will be hopping on planes and traveling all over the world, whether it be on an adventurous vacation of their dreams or a long awaited visit home for the summer. Obviously comfort is everyone’s highest priority when flying, but this Fashionista proves that style does not have to be sacrificed when you’re throwing together an outfit for air travel. Her outfit is ideal for both flying and going out and about immediately after you step off the plane.

Although leggings are usually everyone’s travel go-to, there are all sorts of alternatives that are equally as comfortable but really amp up your style. This Fashionista’s pleated, black midi skirt is just as non-restrictive and cozy as any pair of leggings, however it’s a much more trendy option that is also ideal for any climate that you’ll be landing in. Her knotted shirt is a fun twist on a classic T-shirt that makes her look far more put together, and she pairs it with a stylish leather jacket that will keep her warm in-flight. This Fashionista opts for cute sneakers, which allow her to get from point A to point B in comfort, but they are still cohesive with her casual yet trendy look. Lastly, she accessorizes with a mini backpack which can contain all of her carry-on needs without dragging her down, as well as a pair of funky sunglasses, which are functional but still add a pop of pattern to her outfit.

There’s nothing worse than having to rush to your accommodations after landing in order to change before heading out, but this Fashionista makes it clear that it’s easy to pull together a practical look that you can wear outside of the airport with confidence. After all, there’s no need to ever feel like you can’t be comfy and stylish at the same time, especially when traveling. Happy summer and safe travels to all of you college Fashionistas with big adventures planned for the break!
