The Item You Should Never Wear to the Airport
When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson, and Hilary Swank, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger also divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.
When it comes to putting together your en route look, there's one item I suggest avoiding: spandex (save this workout-appropriate material for the gym). Though I do support the athleisure trend, there are a number of effortless ways to look stylish and comfortable while traveling that do not involve the compact material. My suggestion? Opt for a laid-back look like jeans and a loose blouse for the airport. Some of my go-to traveling outfit pieces are stretchy jeans, an oversize blouse or thin sweater that can double as a blanket if you get cold, practical flats or sneakers, and a great carryall.
