You’ve got your holiday booked, but have you got your airport outfit sorted?

When it comes to airport fashion, it’s all about combining comfort with style. That’s why athleisure has become a popular choice over recent years, embodying the model off-duty look.

The key to choosing your travel outfit is to be prepared with removable layers, especially if you’re travelling from cold weather to a tropical climate. Plus, the plane temperature can be anywhere from cold to warm.

From cycling shorts and a t-shirt, to an all-in-one unitard, we’ve put together a number of comfortable airport outfits that will keep you on trend. Whether you’re catching a long-haul flight to a beach destination or going on a short city break, this is your guide to nail airport dressing.

Read on for our airport outfit ideas below.


Cycling shorts + a t-shirt

If you’re travelling in summer, cycling shorts is an option that’ll keep you cool and comfortable. Pair them with an oversized t-shirt and trainers, plus we’d recommend packing a zip up sweat or bomber jacket in case the airport and the plane get a bit chilly.

Matching set

A matching set is one you can’t go wrong with. It’s chic, comfortable and effortless to think about throwing on before your flight. Go for a yoga style flare leggings and top set or a cosy joggers and sweatshirt co-ord. For a top tip, layer your sweatshirt over a racer neck bodysuit so when you land in the heat, you can ditch the jumper.

Leggings + a sweatshirt

Leggings are essential for travelling and pairing them with a sweatshirt or an oversized hoodie over a t-shirt, will ensure you have plenty of removable layers to stay prepared for all kinds of temperatures. Complete your look with chunky trainers for the ultimate athleisure outfit.

All-in-one unitard

If you’re looking for something easy, an all-in-one unitard is the way to go. Choose from long sleeve, short sleeve and zip up sleeveless styles, all made with sculpt and control fabric that flatters your figure whilst allowing full movement. Tie a sweatshirt round your waist and pair with trainers to complete your look.

Trainers are the footwear of choice we'd recommend since they'll keep you comfortable all day and they’re easy to slip on and off if you want to get cosy on the plane. Go for a chunky pair of trainers or a converse style to suit your preference.

Travel bag

To complete your look, you’ll need a bag to carry all your things from your passport to your lip gloss. Go for a cross-body bag that’s easy to carry with enough room to fit all your travelling essentials.
