7 Really Comfortable-Looking Pieces Celebs Always Wear to the Airport

comfortable celebrity airport outfits



For as long as I've been flying, I've always struggled to nail down the perfect airport outfit. The elusive perfect travel outfit needs to be a combination of comfortable, effortless, functional, sleek, and above all stylish traits. In my opinion, it's the kind of outfit you don't mind passing out in mid-flight, but it's also one you could potentially wear to a meeting right from the airport. No one comes as close to perfecting this tricky balance more than the most well-traveled celebrities, so we're breaking down the comfortable yet stylish items that we always spot in their airport outfits. From Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's trick for making black leggings look couture to the fall trend Priyanka Chopra is making a case for as a travel look, keep reading to discover and shop the seven items that somehow offer the best of both worlds.

Knit Sets

On Selena Gomez: Mango Ribbed Crop Top ($15) and Ribbed Trousers ($23)

As we pointed out, Selena's matching knit tank and trousers are even better than wearing leggings to the airport. The ribbed knit material looks so luxe, and the matching set makes the ensemble feel pulled together. It's chic, but it's also something I'd be okay with wearing to sleep on the plane.

Longline Duster Coats

I'm pretty sure a duster coat is the next best thing to cozying up with a blanket mid-flight. Take a cue from Jennifer Lopez's classic coat and opt for a structured topper in a neutral tone that transcends seasons and looks great layered on top of an all-black outfit (read: Your black leggings will get a stylish upgrade).

Shearling-Lined Slides

Rihanna's airport outfits rival everyone else's for comfortable looks that are still incredibly cool. One thing we always spot her wearing to catch a flight is a pair of fuzzy slides. They're kind of genius to wear to the airport if you think about it since they're easy to take on and off while you're going through security, feel as comfy as your house slippers, and are still an elevated pick.

Ultra-Wide-Leg Pants

Not a leggings gal yourself? Try Victoria Beckham's go-to travel ensemble next time you're headed to the airport. Wide-leg trousers might be just as comfortable as leggings are and they're certainly more polished.

Roomy Boilersuits

Priyanka Chopra is another celeb with exceptional airport style, and this look is making a strong case for the utility jumpsuit trend as a travel outfit.

Elevated Leggings

You didn't think this roundup would omit an actual pair of leggings, did you? For those of us who can't imagine traveling in anything else, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's Wardrobe.NYC pair offers just the stylish upgrade your legging outfits were asking for. Look for details like split hems or trouser-inspired shapes that stand out from your other plain pairs.

Anything from Dr. Martens

From combat boots to loafers, celebs are all in agreement that Dr. Martens makes the best travel shoes. I own several pairs and can personally attest to how comfortable they are (the equivalent to walking on a cloud IMO), and I think the Zendaya look above can attest to how cool they look.
