Airports
Monday, January, 09, 2012 With the holidays long gone and cross-country trips to visit family and friends now only a faded memory, today's the perfect time to fantasize about a spring break getaway. And what better way to get in the mood than to peruse photos of our favorite first-class fashionphiles? Though booking seats with extra leg room or finding a hotel with an infinity pool are certainly essential for the ideal vacay, we here at Who What Wear believe that comfortably chic travel attire is just as important! That's why we've assembled a list of ten stylish globetrotters who, with a mix of relaxed separates and smart accessories, demonstrate how to attain an easy-breezy airport look. From Eva Mendes' cozy getup to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's edgy ensemble, these stars always rack up style miles whenever they're en route. And of course, we aren't ready for takeoff without providing you with an arsenal of coveted pieces all inspired by the ladies in today's What They Wear: Airports.

WHO: Miranda Kerr
WHAT: Ready for takeoff at London's Heathrow Airport in October.
WEAR: Rag & Bone Burnout T-Shirt; denim button-down; brown blazer; Rag & Bone 61778 Skinny Jeans; Celine Cabas Shopping Tote ($1350) in burgundy; brown ankle boots.
WHY: The model/yummy mummy sports a tomboyish look at the airport, layering a boxy blazer over a denim button-down and pairing cuffed jeans with ankle boots. Nab these essentials with Club Monaco's Michele Blazer ($249) and DV by Dolce Vita's Jamison Suede Low Heel Boots ($191). If you're a fan of Kerr's standout burgundy tote by Celine, but don't want to break the bank, Latico's Mimi Top Zip Tote ($245) provides just as much room to store your passport, itinerary, and more!

WHO: Jennifer Hudson
WHAT: Snapped at Tokyo's Narita International Airport last November.
WEAR: Striped shirt; MICHAEL Michael Kors Faux Shearling-Trim Aviator Jacket ($295); black stretch leggings; MICHAEL Michael Kors Hamilton Large Crocodile-Embossed Tote ($298); KORS Michael Kors Channing Wedge Booties ($295) in Luggage Sport Suede.
WHY: Tissue-thin layered tops and stretch leggings are instantly glam paired with pieces-a leather jacket, croc-embossed tote, and lace-up wedges-in rich chocolate brown and caramel hues. For inspired takes on Hudson's on-the-go outfit, check out RD Style's Shearling Jacket With Knit Panels ($129) and Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent's Miller Wedge Booties ($325).

WHO: Sienna Miller
WHAT: Landing at LAX two months ago.
WEAR: Rag & Bone/JEANThe Long Sleeve Pocket Tee ($125); Rag & Bone/JEAN Oakley Cardigan ($255) in Ivory; 7 For All Mankind Skinny Jeans; Alexander Wang Jane Zip Bag ($760); Vivienne Westwood Suede Pirate Boots ($856).
WHY: Miller is a pro at pulling off effortless style, and her recent airport ensemble is no exception. One of our favorite elements in Miller's outfit is her buckle boots, which are not only comfy for traversing across the airport, but easy to take on and off at customs! Steal Miller's relaxed It-girl style with Topshop's Knitted Chunky Cable Cardi ($120) and J. Crew's Ryder Short Buckle Boots ($248).

WHO: Eva Mendes
WHAT: Pulling up to JFK last December.
WEAR: Long sweater coat; oversized black scarf; black jeans; Salvatore Ferragamo Leather Tote Bag ($1950); tan lace-up boots.
WHY: It's no wonder Mendes cocoons herself in a chunky scarf, drapey sweater coat, and lace-up boots at the airport-those terminals can get downright chilly! We found lookalike pieces that are perfect for wearing en route, like Forever 21's Cable Knit Longline Cardigan ($30), Paula Bianco's Chunky Knit Wrap Scarf ($105), and Madison Harding's Bateman Lace-Up Boots ($275), to replicate Mendes' bundled-up garb.

WHO: Doutzen Kroes
WHAT: Spotted at Miami International Airport.
WEAR: Louis Vuitton scarf; Balenciaga leather jacket; J. Brand Low-Rise Pencil Leg Jeans ($185) in Shadow; Isabel Marant Bekket High-Top Suede Sneakers ($725); Givenchy bag.
WHY: 'Trendsetting' may not be the first word that comes to mind when one thinks of sneakers, but Kroes proves us wrong with a pair of fashion-forward kicks. If you're as besotted with her vivid red, sold-out high-tops as we are, you'll be happy to know that Isabel Marant's Willow High-Top Sneakers ($760) are quite similar, while Civic Duty's Sensation High-Top Sneaker ($59) offers a more affordable option. Of course, we can't ignore Kroes' scarf, another brilliant accessory that elevates her casual basics. Snag Diane von Furstenberg's Kenlsey Scarf ($250) to achieve the ultimate cool-girl look!

WHO: Dakota Fanning
WHAT: Strolling through LAX in December.
WEAR: Target black beanie; Miu Miu jacket with shearling collar; J Brand Stretch Velvet Leggings ($183); Valentino Rockstud Convertible Satchel ($2075); Alexander Wang Luca Ankle Boots ($875).
WHY: From her soft leather jacket with its shearling collar to her velvety dark green leggings, Fanning's outfit is a wonderful mix of rich fabrics and interesting textures. Miss Sixty's Aviator Jacket ($144) and Armani Collezioni's Casual Pants ($59) will keep you just as toasty, while ASOS' Bertie Zoona Lace Up Heeled Ankle Boots ($218) lend a touch of edge a la Fanning. Though her Alexander Wang boots are no longer available in black leather, we scoured the web to find them in brown suede ($875), an equally versatile shade.

WHO: Ashley Olsen
WHAT: Arriving at JFK with sister Mary Kate last October.
WEAR: StyleMint Broadway T-Shirt ($30) in Hibiscus; beige jacket; navy sweatpants; Hermes 40CM Birkin in Gold; black sandals.
WHY: In loose-fitting sweats and sandals, Olsen is the picture of total embarkment comfort. But the addition of a few statement pieces, like her signature Birkin bag and a polished jacket with flap patch pockets, offers a vibe far more stylish than slapdash. Pair Ali Ro's Spread Collar Trenchcoat ($205) with Splendid's Stretch Jersey Track Pants ($98) to create a similarly relaxed ensemble, then toss on jetsetter-worthy accessories like Anya Hindmarch's Pimlico Leather Tote ($1250) and Ray-Ban's Large Metal 58 mm Sunglasses ($139).

WHO: Freida Pinto
WHAT: Arriving at London's Heathrow last year.
WEAR: Tribal-inspired sweater; peach scarf; black leggings; Ralph Lauren Tiffin Bag ($2595) in black; Roger Vivier Belle De Nuit Suede Gommette Flats ($590)
WHY: Pinto jumps on the tribal bandwagon-albeit subtly-in a geometric-patterned jumper. The sweater's eye-catching print undoubtedly sets her apart from other passengers, while its slouchy silhouette allows for ease of movement onboard the flight. In other words, Pinto's ensemble is on-point and ideal for long-haul plane rides! Snag Forever 21's Patterned Boyfriend Sweater ($43) and LAMB's Runway Navajo Sweater Dress ($330) if you want Pinto's trendy, yet convenient, look.

WHO: Charlize Theron
WHAT: En route at JFK two months ago.
WEAR: Vince striped cardigan; light gray scarf; Leslie Fremar for Fruit of the Loom t-shirt; skinny jeans; Siegerson Morrison bag; Alexander Birman boots.
WHY: The beauty of Theron's lovely laidback look lies in its simplicity. Though her outfit is basic, the impeccable fit of her t-shirt, striped cardigan, and skinny jeans lends each piece an undeniable sophistication. The actress cleverly wraps up in a warm knit scarf-an in-flight must-have for so many stylish jetsetters. To emulate Theron's threads in an easily attainable way, check out Topshop's Fine Knit Cable Snood ($32) and Splendid's Chunky Club Stripe Cardigan ($85).

WHO: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
WHAT: Touching down at London's Heathrow Airport three months ago.
WEAR: Oversized patterned scarf; Burberry Tassel Bowler Bag ($2195); Helmut Lang leather leggings; Isabel Marant Dicker Suede Ankle Boots ($580) in Sage Suede.
WHY: Punch up a monochromatic uniform with a colorful purse and a generously proportioned scarf in a chic geometric print (which also serves as a cozy blanket during your flight!). Vangi's Bowler Bag ($298) and Dries van Noten's Metal Bead Scarf ($607) are both outstanding alternatives. Though Huntington-Whiteley's Isabel Marant boots are sadly no longer available in sage suede, they do come in a variety of other pleasing shades like Camel or Taupe. Or, go easy on your wallet with Steven by Steve Madden's nearly identical Pembrook Boots ($129).
