Your sense of wanderlust is starting to set in—trust us, we know the feeling—and hopefully you have a slew of awesome travel plans on the horizon. Accordingly, today we’re pleased to present some inspiring airport ensembles from our favourite seasoned globetrotters, including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and more. Take off and arrival has never looked so stylish.
When music festival muse Bosworth turned up at LAX in Zara’s Accordion Pleat Skirt ($80), a Longchamp bag and Rimowa suitcase, and Rodarte’s Snakeskin Embossed Leather Booties ($874), she proved you don’t have to sacrifice your fashion-forward sensibilities just because you’re at the airport.
For ensured comfort on long flights, take a page from Witherspoon’s airport stylebook, and select a pair of silk trousers—bonus points for a brightly printed style. The actress caught our eye at the Miami airport in a Velvet top, MICHAEL Michael Kors pants, a Goyard bag, and Valentino Studded Textured-Leather Sandals ($875).
If you want to skip the pants in lieu of a skirt a la Emma Watson, seen here in A.L.C., ground the dressy piece with a pair of tomboy oxfords.
A comfy coat, like Hathaway’s printed grey and black version, is great for chilly flights and even colder destinations. The actress’ luxe accessories, specifically Fendi’s Colorblock Square Acetate Sunglasses ($340) and MZ Wallace’s Large Metro Tote ($195) in Metro, make for a stylish finish.
For a look that’s relaxed, yet still put together, follow Diaz’s lead, and go for a monochromatic colour palette. Arriving at LAX earlier this month, The Other Woman actress wore an oversized grey sweater with grey jeans and suede boots.
Thanks to the unexpected colour combo of mustard yellow (Gucci’s Bright Diamante Leather Top Handle Bag ($2100), specifically) and plum (Rag & Bone jeans), Girls actress Allison Williams’ low-key airport look is far from understated.
For a trip to Rio de Janeiro early this month, Moss showcased her eccentric side in a graphic t-shirt paired with leopard-print drawstring trousers and Azzedine Alaia ankle booties.
The quickest way to a noteworthy en-route ensemble is a bright coat, as demonstrated by Rita Ora wearing JOSEPH's Kangaroo Sydney Coat ($2848) at Heathrow Airport last week. Teamed with all-white separates, the singer’s neon orange was the centrepiece of her look.
Resist the urge to wear yoga pants on the plane, and try a pair of stretch leather leggings for a more of-the-moment look. Game of Thrones beauty Emilia Clarke did just this last month at JFK in T by Alexander Wang’s Stretch-Leather Pants ($1150) and Manolo Blahnik’s Soussaba d’Orsay Flats ($645).

Leave the ballet flats at home, and add an element of cool to your look with a pair of croc-print ankle boots.
