The 2019 Way to Dress for the Airport—and the One Piece to Skip

With regular events and appearances across the globe, celebrities log plenty of frequent flyer miles, so it’s no surprise they're all masters of dressing for the airport. So what are some style takeaways we can learn from celebrities? And how can these lessons teach us to dress for the airport better in 2019?

Looking to recent celeb airport outfits, there’s one major style lesson they all follow. Celebrities prioritise comfort when travelling, but they never sacrifice style. Their looks revolve around cosy pieces they can wear for long flights. That means everything from loose-fitting jeans paired with cashmere sweaters as we spotted on Bella Hadid to a matching knit set like Kendall Jenner recently wore. We’ll continue to see iterations of all of these airport outfit formulas long into 2019.

What, then, is the one piece all celebrities skip? Uncomfortable shoes. Yes, feel free to leave the heels packed into your suitcase and instead opt for comfy sneakers or ankle boots at the airport. Ahead, see my predictions for ways everyone will dress for the airport in 2019 and shop pieces inspired by the looks.
