5 Tips For Travel Style

What To Wear At The Airport

Planning a little getaway? Whether you’re jetting off for a city break or travelling long-haul for a little sun, make the airport your own personal runway with these top tips. Who said travelling couldn’t be fashionable?

Tip 1:

Find Comfort In Style

If there’s one thing we know to be true, it’s that comfort and style can co-exist. And when it comes to flying, they simply must. Let’s be real, nobody wants to spend an 11-hour flight to Los Angeles in jeans. But that doesn’t mean the only other alternative is a tracksuit.

We suggest pairing comfortable wide-leg trousers with a t-shirt of the same colour and an oversized jacket for an effortlessly chic look. Choose your jacket depending on where you’re travelling to – somewhere warm? Maybe something lighter like a leather bomber. Heading off for a winter break? Nothing beats a wool overcoat.

Tip 2:

Bring Layers

When travelling by plane, we always find ourselves shivering after take off. Even if you’re jetting off to the sun, don’t leave yourself out in the cold by dressing for the hot weather prematurely. We recommend bringing an added layer of some sort, be that a comfortable sweatshirt from Anine Bing, or a cosy knit from LOEWE or Toteme.

Tip 3:

Bring The Right Bag

A large tote bag is a godsend for travelling. In 2024, we’re leaving behind travel backpacks and laptop bags, instead reaching for our favourite stylish tote, designed to carry it all. Marc Jacob’s now synonymous Tote Bags are ideal for their crossbody strap option when hurrying to your gate, but we’re also partial to JW Anderson's new season oversized basket-style bags.

Tip 4:

Wear The Right Shoes

If you’re anything like us, you want to get through airport security as quickly as possible and directly into duty free! Dublin Airport’s official rules state that “any shoes, runners or boots that are at ankle height or higher” will have to be removed. With this in mind, we recommend wearing low-rise trainers or shoes that are comfortable enough for a last-minute dash through the terminal if you’re running late! Our personal favourites of the moment are the Adidas Handball Spezial trainers.

Tip 5:

Don't Forget To Accessorise

When choosing your accessories for flying, we prefer to keep it simple – don’t worry about layering jewellery that you might need to take off when going through security. Instead, consider opting for sunglasses, ready for when you land (plus, they add to that undercover celebrity vibe), and maybe a hat.
