Steal These Celeb Travel-Fashion Ideas
We get it. Airport outftits are tricky. The plane is often chilly even when exterior temperatures are not. Plus, security checks always pose problems for those of us who love to accessorize (but are completely necessary for our safety).
So, when you're completely stumped about what to wear for a day of traveling, take inspiration from celebrities who are constantly on the go, and quite franky, have this whole travel-in-style thing down-pat.
Slide-on sandals like Emma Stone's easily slip off and on, making TSA checks a breeze. A light, drapey jacket is both comfortable and cozy for long, cold flights. Basic separates, like Stone's jeans and black tee, transition seamlessly from a day of sight-seeing to drinks at night. Simply add jewelry and block heels to elevate the look.
Layering is key when creating a versatile travel look. Here, Katie Holmes pairs bright coral pants with a plain white tee layered under an oversized plaid button-down for a casual, laid-back look. Sunglasses hide tired, jet-lagged eyes, while a chunky scarf doubles as a blanket and layering piece.
Fashion-savvy business travelers should take cues from Miranda Kerr. A versatile look like hers combines comfort and professionalism, perfect for trips that require you to go from airport to office with no time in between. Kerr's herringbone jacket adds polish to jeans and sneakers, which can easily be switched out for heels later.
With Mary Kate and Ashley as her older sisters, Elizabeth Olsen (unfairly) grew up with very chic role models, from whom she learned styling basics. Here, Olsen opts for a classic, all-black ensemble, a go-to outfit formula for when you don't know what the heck else to wear. Minimal accessories and simple mules allow for a quick-and-easy security check.
Two things to note about Alba's look: One, white sneakers add a cool element to her otherwise basic outfit. Two, coffee is a must-have. Most importantly though, don't overthink a traveling outfit. Stick to classic pieces that fit and flatter you best, then, let the accessories do the talking, like Alba does here.
Bomber jackets and white sneakers are very on trend (thank goodness!) and very practical for traveling. Elle Fanning incorporates both of these "atheleisure" pieces into her airport look for a stylish and comfy ensemble that's easily dressed up for a meeting or event.
While Ambrosio dons all black here, which is slimming and versatile, feel free to swap a printed blouse for her black one or a statement sandal for her simple espadrilles. The major takeaway from Ambrosio's outfit is not the color palette, but how she smartly pairs breezy separates with flirty, practical shoes for an ensemble that truly works for any kind of traveling.
