What She Wears: Airport

So you thought it was OK to wear runners and a comfy, velour tracksuit on your next flight? Think again girl. Despite the fact that you have comfort (tracksuit and socks), warmth (blanket) and accessories (pillow) to think about, imagine being in the limelight where you are bound to be photographed stepping off an 8 hour flight ?

The celebrities and  seasoned travelers know exactly what to wear when going on a trip, but for the rest of us, creating an outfit that’s both pratical and glamourous is not an easy task.

Here, the whatshewears.ie team brings you the ultimate in how to look like you’re famous at the airport. From stopovers with large sunglasses (à la Kate Bekinsale) to transatlantic flights in scarves, here are our top four choices for how to look like a trendsetter – even in an airport terminal.

Pictured left to right:

Charlize Theron
Charlize has always wowed us with her airport panache jetting from Europe to America.  Seen here at LAX (no, its not a laxative, it’s LA International Airport for those of you not in the know), she exudes coolness in a blazer.  Theron’s blue scarf gives her outfit some texture and wraps her up on an air-conditioned plane. Check out her lovely pair of Converse Sequined runners.

Whitney Port
Have you seen the programme The City? The star of the show, Whitney Port, is great at translating trends into wearable outfits. Here, Whitney Port looks positvely laid back,  looking refreshed even at a stressful scenario that is the airport (she should visit Dublin airport!).

Here she is waiting for her baggage wearing an Opening Ceremony Cropped Cable crewneck jumper and a pair of Current/Elliott boyfriend jeans in the Natural Denim Destroy wash, both cool, laidback choices. Her flat shoes are great for long distance flights when you have to kick off your shoes and take to the flight ahead.

What do you think of Fergie’s new brunette look? It’s kind of covered here by her hat as she makes her way through New York’s JFK airport in a brown leather Kenneth Cole jacket, belted tunic top and matching brown boots.

Kate Beckinsale
The chic British actress adds some welcome red to her all-black ensemble while leaving New York’s JFK airport. We are loving her American Apparel leggings.

So next time you are due to jet off, grab your oversized of sunglasses, a cool scarf and hide your face from the crowds with your hand, as if you were famous.  And people will actually think that you are! Fact.
