The Celebrity Guide to Dressing Comfortably at the Airport

It’s no surprise that most celebrities show up to the airport looking incredible—they’ve got heels on, a blowout to match, and usually someone to handle their luggage. While we certainly admire their ensembles, they’re not quite realistic for our traveling M.O., which includes being stylish and comfortable. Accordingly, we pulled together the best fashionable airport outfits that’ll still allow you to sit comfortably for hours, even if you’re sitting next to a guy with rogue elbows.

On Alba: Jenni Kayne Basic d’Orsay Flats ($199) in Caramel Leather; Finlay & Co Bosworth Sunglasses ($225); Topshop hat; Bric’s Milano Bellagio 30 Spinner Trunk ($625) in Cream.

​Tip: An oversized blazer is great for a roomy extra layer.

Behati Prinsloo



On Prinsloo: Givenchy Floral Butterfly Nylon Backpack ($1320) in Black-Multi; Dr. Martens 1460 Boots ($135) in Black/Nappa.
