It's a given: You don't have to sacrifice style for comfort when it comes to your travel wardrobe. Take it from Karlie Kloss who showed us that airport leggings and ballet flats can look incredibly chic, especially with the addition of a double-breasted coat. And most recently, it's Kaia Gerber, who's perfectly reworked an office pant into her jet-setting wardrobe.
Spotted at LAX, the 16-year-old model arrived donning a pair of gray high-waisted checked trousers featuring a cool double-zipper detail on the front. While typically an office staple, Kaia paired her elegant bottoms with a simple white T-shirt, a black zip-up hoodie (another travel essential), and a pair of white Nike classic Cortez sneakers.
Her choice in pants was a dressier alternative to the airport leggings, but by styling them with other traditionally laid-back pieces—the tee, the hoodie, and the sneakers—Kaia proved that the trouser is the comfortable (and versatile) piece your travel wardrobe has been missing.
