The Surprising Shoe Trend Celebrities Still Wear to the Airport

If there’s one thing I’ve learnt this year, it’s that 'airport style' is most definitely a thing. Traditionally, long-haul dressing was all about comfort but nowadays our favourite celebs know that a stylish travel outfit can be just as impactful as a red carpet look.

And while you might not be jetting off to the same destinations or events as the celeb pack, it doesn't mean you can't still dress to impress on your next flight (or even train journey!). When it comes to nailing travelling in style, there are few things that celebrities always seem to rely on, like a large tote bag, sunglasses, great denim and easy layers. But you might be surprised to know that chic celebrity airport looks also always feature an unpredictable footwear choice: Heels

From heeled ankle boots to strappy, barely-there sandals, the inspo is endless when it comes to what type of heel celebs are wearing at airport security and beyond. Style icons like Amal Clooney and Kate Moss have thrown their trainers and uggs to the side in favour of heeled boots, while the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jessica Alba have opted for a classic heeled shoe.

Victoria Beckham wears a yellow blazer, jeans and tan boots.

Style Notes: A lesson in how to wear flares, when it comes to VB she never gets it wrong. She favours teaming her's with a round or almond toe chunky heel boot to help balance out the silhouette. If you're not a fan of a chunky heel a wedge boot would work just as well.
