How To Make A Statement In The Airport

Got a flight coming up? The airport can be a stressful place particularly if you are not an experienced flyer, but it can also be somewhere exciting with lots of people and even the opportunity to relax and have some fun in the departure lounge. This means that even though you will be focused on getting through so that you can board the plane, you will still want to look your best and make a statement at the airport. Fortunately, there are a few great ways that you can do this while still being fully prepared for the various hurdles that you must go through.

Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are perfect for the airport as they are both comfortable and stylish and they can be worn with anything. Many people opt for yoga leggings, but be careful that they aren’t too scruffy (you won’t get bumped up wearing these) and a dress may be a bit much for the airport. Avoid wearing a belt or make sure that you take it off in advance of going through security.



A nice pullover with a comfortable t-shirt underneath can look fantastic paired with skinny jeans and provide plenty of warmth if you’re cold. Also, you can easily take it off and tie it around your waist if you get hot. This will also be ideal for the flight as it will be soft and warm so that you can easily relax.


Your outerwear will depend on where you are headed, but you should pick something that can be dressed up or down and is not too bulky. Outerwear can also double up as a cushion or pillow for the departure lounge or flight.


In terms of shoes, you should pick something that you can easily slip on and off for getting through security and in case your feet swell on the plane, such as canvas sneakers. Slip-ons can also look great, but just be sure to wear lined socks so that you do not have to go through security barefoot.


A stylish handbag can complete the look and is also highly practical. Keep all your documents in here so that you have easy access to them. If you have space, think about a change of clothes and toiletries in case the flight is delayed. Being prepared for every eventuality is always worth it. Delays can be frustrating, but they do occur. You may be able to claim compensation with specialists like FairPlane if the flight is cancelled or delayed by more than 3 hours.


Finally, having a pair of sunglasses will help you to make a statement and look like a celebrity when arriving at your destination. Sunglasses can also be helpful for times that you want to get some shut-eye either at departures or on the flight.

An airport fundamentally gets us from A to B, but it can be stylish and fun (once you get through security). You will want to be well prepared and comfortable, but you will also want to look your best and make a lasting impression. The above should ensure that you make a statement but also get through the airport with ease so that you can land and start to enjoy your holiday.
