Flying off to a fanciful destination is reason enough to play dress up. Airport trends can’t be given a miss as it is all about being minimalistic and simple. There is just something about the basics and how you put it together that speaks a lot of who you are as a person. Are you going to take the chic route or the casual I-woke-up-this-way one? Celebs love taking their looks for the airport from all day basics to ultra glam and of course there are some hits and misses in that arena! Since the lot of them gets clicked quite often at the airport, it has become quite the rage to follow high-fashion trends at the airport too.

There are some celebs who turn up decked to surprise you. Kangana Ranaut has been quite the daredevil even donning a sari once, for her plane journey. For fashionistas like Sonam and Deepika more often not, there seems to be something quite versatile when it comes to carrying off outfits that although quite normal are snazzy enough for wherever they would be flying off to. Here are some of the best in the city telling you how to jet off in style.

Comfort is all that you should really care for, as designer Prerana Sarkar says, “While travelling you need to dress accordingly, keeping in mind that you need to be comfortable for your journey. Regular denim or ripped jeans that have a comfortable fit are in this season. Pair them with a polka dots or gingham print shirt as they are in vogue right now.”

The point here is to keep your focus on having one statement piece like your shoes or jackets that pretty much does all the talking. Designer Monali Ranka explains, “The airport fashion scene is quite an interesting space to experiment with regular clothing. Casual trenches in checks with a smart tapered pair of jeans with a simple Tee can get an upgrade with a cool pair of sneakers or boots. A lot of people care about the kind of foot wear or jackets they use when it comes to airport fashion as they are essentials. If you are travelling to a much colder place, you could thrown on a trench coat in khaki colour or else opt for a sweatshirt with a cool printed text.” Sustainable fashion has been in the spotlight this season and as designer Govind Kumar Singh says, “Pastel colours with sustainable fabrics like cotton are quite a hit. Sweatshirts and hoodies in greys and blues paired with leggings or jeggings keeps the vibe casual but stylish for the airport. A classy bag in a black or tan colour could be your statement piece even while you carry your important documents and travel essentials.”
