Oh airport style, you are the one thing I long to get right but I always get so wrong.
How many times have I thought I’m Kim Kardashian when I arrive at the airport and feel a little more like Phil Mitchell after I go through security. When it comes to airport style, less is definitely more.
Instagram has definitely changed the way I look at airport style and I always wonder if I should be doing more? Sometimes I wonder if I should be showing up in one of my best occasion dresses and strutting through security but of course reality pulls me back.
These days I opt for neutrals like black, grey, khaki or navy to see me through check in desk to arrivals. I mean who knows if they’ll be sitting next to a screaming baby who suddenly might throw up on you or the guy who has had too much red wine?

Comfort and practicality is key for me so I opt for gymwear. Here are a few ways you can take the lead on airport style…
Co-ords double up as separates with your other pieces in your luggage.
Layers are key, planes are notoriously cold but they can also be hot!
Slip on shoes, so you can take them on and off during the flight, don’t forget your socks though.
Accessories – think practical, always carry your emergency items and electrical items in pouches so they’re easy to access.
Check the weather before you go and ask yourself the following questions:
- Will I be going from the airport straight to the hotel?
- Will I be able to check in and shower straight away?
- Can I leave my luggage there or will I be dragging it around with me?
- What is the weather like?
Airport style is whatever you want it to be. Some of us want to be chic, some of us want to be comfy, you can find a happy medium or thrive in being frumpy.
