Some people may think of “tired”, “gross”, and “stressful” when they think of airports…I always think of excitement. Because if I’m in an airport that means I’m going somewhere!

When I was planning my trip to Paris, Barcelona, and Rome, I was talking to a friend about what I would wear to the airport. She asked, “Why can’t you just wear what you’re wearing now?” I was wearing sweatpants and a sweatshirt at the time. I laughed. But only in the “you’re right, it would be way easier but I’m ridiculous” sort of way.

Airport style is totally a thing and there are ways to nail that “chic but comfy” look. I’m going to New York City for NYFW in 6 days (!!!) and of course I’m thinking about how to look stylish and important when I’m so obviously not 😉 Hey fake it till you make it…

So here are 4 no fail airport outfit combos inspired by the queen of airport style, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, model and actress. Pretty much anything Rosie wears wears looks amazing. It’s hard to pick my favorite airport looks of hers so here are some top faves:

  

If you start to analyze her outfits you can see repeat combos that work. Here are some outfits put together on that:

1. skinny jeans + tee+ blazer + flats + tote + oversized sunglasses

3. skinny jeans + tee + bootes + sunglasses + tote + belted coat

4 . skinny jeans + tee + peacoat + booties airport outfit comboI wouldn’t wear heels to the airport and I don’t think it’s very practical for us regular folk, so I switched out the heels for flats or booties. Remember that your outfit is never complete without a gorgeous pair of oversized sunglasses and an oversized tote!

On my recent trek to Europe I didn’t get the airport style I desired because I was packing for 3 cities and 7 days in one carry on and for a long flight. I had to go comfort over look. Boo. Haha.  I have more room in my suitcase this time around and less of a flight…so here’s to a comeback! 😉

When in doubt stick to skinny jeans + outerwear (cardigan, bomber, blazer) + accessories (hat, tote, sunglasses) and you’ll look be looking like an off duty model!
