    Nicole Richie

    Arriving at LAX, Richie resembled Cruella Deville in the greatest way possible. In a floor-length animal-print coat, a band tee, and black Ksubi jeans, she accessorized with black patent leather Lanvin boots, House of Harlow 1960 Chelsea Sunglasses ($138), and a leather chain choker.

    Carey Mulligan

    The actress arrived to LAX in an enviable Isabel Marant x H&M sweater paired with black jeans and smoking slippers. If you were one of the many disappointed shoppers who didn’t snatch this cozy knit before it sold out, don’t worry; H&M’s Melange Sweater ($70) will substitute quite nicely.

    Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

    Always look to this stylish jetsetter for travel outfit inspiration! She kept cozy recently in her Etoile Isabel Marant Addyson Soft Knit ($305), paired with Frame Denim Le Color Skinny Jeans ($184), a Givenchy Large Antigona Tote ($1122), and Isabel Marant Scarlet Boots ($939). Travel tip: for extra warmth, drape a jacket over your shoulders, like Huntington-Whiteley!

    Cate Blanchett

    If you’re hopping on a quick flight to a warm destination, we suggest an outfit like Blanchett’s. Her Resort 14 Stella McCartney blazer adds a sophisticated touch to her relaxed Chloé trousers and Roger Vivier sandals. Skipping the carry on? Go with Tod’s Sella Small Bowling Bag ($1770); it’s the perfect balance between spacious and compact!

    Kate Bosworth

    It’s true what they say about flying: always bring a coat and wear slip-ons! While we like to break the rules from time to time, Bosworth shows us being a rule-follower can still be stylish. She paired an Isabel Marant coat with red Tommy Hilfiger pants, and added a playful touch with her Prada Top Handle Bag ($1795).

    Jessica Hart

    The stylish Aussie touched down in Sydney in a fresh, neutral-hued getup. She chose a pale, pink sweater and white Alice + Olivia jeans as her base, and accessorized with a beige scarf, camel Givenchy Metal-Detail Calf Boots ($1295), and a rosewood Prada Tote ($2500).  The secret to her effortless look? Easy details, like her messy topknot, wide-framed glasses, and simple Rimowa Suitcase ($515).

    Miranda Kerr

    If you travel as often as Kerr does, there’s no doubt you have a few go-to pieces in your arsenal for a seamless day of travel. The model arrived at LAX in The Row Kenta Top ($1152), Frame Denim jeans, a pair of Balenciaga flats, and a Pierre Balmain bag. The combined simplicity of all these pieces creates a successful airport ensemble, we’d say!

    Jena Malone

    The Hunger Games actress turned heads in her skin-baring ensemble at LAX last month. She draped her motorcycle jacket over a black and white striped crop top, but her high-waist pencil skirt and loafers tempered the sex appeal to create a truly dynamic airport outfit.

    Chloë Grace Moretz

    At WhoWhatWear.com, we appreciate a good army jacket, which is why we want to recreate Moretz’s recent travel ensemble, like now. In a black shirt and jeans, she let her patched army jacket and animal-print slippers serve as her outfit’s standout pieces. To shield herself from the paparazzi’s flashes, she chose a pair of oversized Dior sunglasses.

    Gwyneth Paltrow

    If you need to maintain professional attire for your upcoming travels, look to Paltrow for an excellently executed outfit. Her gray coat paired perfectly with her pinstripe trousers and nude pumps. She gave the look a boost with a structured bag, black sunglasses, and a chunky chain bracelet.

    Get The Look: Wallis Grey Slim Coat ($175); Zara Pinstripe Trousers ($60); J.Crew Factory Leather Dorset Satchel ($99); Steven Mikka Patent Point-Toe Pump ($59)

    Emma Stone

    The Spiderman actress wore a chic and easy ensemble on a recent flight to LAX. With basic separates like her 525 America Crew Neck Sweater ($79), Rag & Bone Skinny Jeans ($220), and Isabel Marant Dicker Suede Boots ($650). Her blanket scarf and English saddle-colored bag served as excellent pieces to polish the look.

    Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

    As you already know, the Olsens know how to wear all-black, and this stands true in other areas of dress, including travel! Ashley opted for loafers, cropped jeans, and a sleek coat, while Mary-Kate chose boots, skinny jeans, and an oversized coat. With crocodile bags in tow and sunglasses on, they proved (yet again) that black never goes out of style.

    Get Mary-Kate’s Look: Nasty Gal Coletta Coat ($120); Marciano Skinny Jean No. 61 ($148); Sam Edelman Petty Booties ($130);

    Get Ashley’s Look: Calvin Klein Lady Coat ($154); Helmut Lang Cropped Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans ($195); Mango Leather Penny Loafers ($130)

    Katie Holmes

    On a recent flight to Cape Town, Holmes stayed cozy in a ribbed beanie, military coat, and blue jeans. To tie the look together, she chose black, slip-on boots and black sunglasses. Travel tip: before arriving to the airport, set your hair in loose curls so when you arrive at your destination your hair has a perfectly undone look, like Holmes’.

    Get The Look: Topshop Shorter Turn Up Beanie ($20); Jane Post A-Line Military Coat ($277); Mavi Jeans Alexa Mid Rise Skinny Jeans ($98); Madewell Archive Boot ($298)

    Lily Collins

    If you fancy yourself the bohemian type, try a Tolani Shayna shrug, distressed jeans, and a Zadig & Voltaire satchel à la Collins. For a touch of femininity, opt for a pair of Chloé Lauren Ballerina Flats ($437) instead of ankle boots.

    Heidi Klum

    While we admit that a one piece may prove slightly difficult on an airplane, we couldn’t resist showing you Klum’s recent stylish travel ensemble. Her 6397 Hidden Placket Denim Jumpsuit ($359) paired perfectly with her long, black cardigan and Supra Skytop Sneakers ($115) to create a topnotch ensemble. Consider this your short flight go-to look.
