Hello, beautiful people, my name is Mia and the only somewhat beneficial thing I get from my OCD-ridden brain is the ability to completely not freak out about massive, life-changing things and instead freak out about absolutely meaningless nonsense. (I mean, the only beneficial thing aside from being great at detecting patterns but how? is? that? useful? in? any? way? shape? or? form?)
Case in point? I’m moving to literally the other side of the world with two girls I literally have met twice and I am unfazed; I have planned quite literally nothing. Now, my airport outfit however? Well, that needs to be tried and tested; we need to look at all different variations. It needs to be the right blend of comfortable and chic. Casual, yet still stylish.
Why? Absolutely no fucking reason. Is what I’m wearing to the airport going to change the outcome of my holiday? Absolutely not. Am I going to over-plan it like my happiness for the next 6 months to 2 years hinges on it? Abso-fucking-lutely.
So, welcome, my friends – today I’m going to be sharing with you the perfect things to wear to the airport. You ready? Great.
First up, I’m sharing a lookbook video with you! Watch it and subscribe, because... well, there’s no real incentive other than I want you to. Can’t that be enough?
We have short haul flights, long haul flights, summer flights and winter flights. I’m really pleased with how this turned out (also: discovered potential cute airport outfits I had not previously considered – and also just outfits – which is always a plus) so make sure you watch.
(By the way, all of the images below of other girls were off Pinterest and the sources were things like repost Tumblr pages and weheartit, so if you know where any of the source images were found let me know and I can add source links.)
When it comes to short haul summer flights, you can go cute. A few hours on the plane is nothing – you could comfortably wear a dress for that. Plus, the good thing about summer is that the days extend for longer so rocking a cute outfit means you can hop off your flight, dump your bags at the hotel and jet straight off!
My rule of thumb for any flight longer than four hours? Fuck being cute, you want to be comfy. Airports are an amazing place where it’s socially acceptable to wear jogging bottoms and leggings, so take advantage. If you wouldn’t change into it after a long day of school/work, it isn’t comfy enough.
For short haul winter flights, again, you can look cute (and warm). It’s all about the layering and the knits. Personally, I like wearing jeans in the winter for short flights because they are a little bit warmer.
Again, long haul flights for me require leggings or jogging bottoms – so switch out those jeans!
Have I decided on my airport outfit for Australia as of yet? No, not really – but hey, at least I’m somewhat closer to knowing what to wear, right? I have inspiration and options, so that’s half the battle won. If you enjoyed this post, make sure you’re all following my Fashion Pinterest board!
Which of my outfits did you guys like best? (No seriously, can you tell me because I want to have at least that ultimately meaningless decision made.) What’s your airport style? Do you have a go-to travel outfit? Did you enjoy my video? Let me know your thoughts down below!
