Easily my favorite travel outfits always include a matching set. Not only are you at an optimal comfort level but you also always look effortless while wearing a matching set. There are so many sets on the market these days. You can choose from a knit set, a matching sweat set, or even a short set. Pair it with loafers and a classic trench for a polished look. For a casual look pair it with white sneakers and a denim jacket! Below I’m sharing my top picks at all price points.
MATCHING SET TOP PICKS:
Leggings + Oversized Button-Down
Classic but make it comfy! That’s what I call this airport style that’s a favorite of mine. When it comes to picking out leggings I always have the best luck when purchasing quality over quantity. For instance, I’ve had my lululemon leggings for 7 years now and they still look new (wear roughly 1-2 a week). Really. It’s best to invest in pieces you know you will wear over and over. I also love the Spanx leggings because they hold you in girlfriend. As for the oversized button-down, I tend to find good ones at Zara and H&M since these pieces truly only last a few seasons. Pro tip: size up your button-down for an oversized fit.
FAVORITE BUTTON-DOWN TOPS:
Knit Joggers + Graphic Tee
This combination airs more on the casual side but is a favorite of mine. This airport outfit is perfect for those red-eye flights since we need all the comfort to help us sleep. You can pair this low with slip-on sneakers, a baseball cap, and an oversized jacket to pull it all together. Don’t forget to pack your eye mask!
GRAPHIC TEE FAVORITES:
Biker Shorts + Crewneck Sweatshirt
A little more on the trendy side but this combo is perfect for those warm summer temps. I’m obsessed with these biker shorts from Alo. They are the best quality and come in over 10 colors. You can easily pair this look with an oversized sweatshirt (blazer if you want to be super on-trend), sneakers, and a baseball cap to pull it all together.
BIKER SHORT FAVORITES:
CREWNECK SWEATSHIRT FAVORITES:
Who wants to wear a dress on a plane? Not me! Another easy way to put together a stylish airport outfit without actually trying is to invest in a comfortable jumpsuit. You can easily pair this with cute sneakers, an oversized denim jacket, and a scarf (that doubles as a blanket on the plane) to pull it all together. It may be difficult traveling in a jumpsuit when it comes to using the bathroom, but anything to look cute, right?

Airport Outfits Must-Haves
A Comfy Jacket
A comfortable jacket, faux leather jacket, or sweatshirt (see above) is a must for travel clothes. You can always count on airplane cabins to be chilly, so you don’t want to forget this piece when traveling. Also, it can double as a blanket or travel pillow. You can get creative on a flight! Sharing my favorite comfy jackets to travel in below:
It’s always smart to have a hat on hand because you never know what kind of bad. hair days you will run into when traveling. This is the perfect way to combat those unexpected days!
Whenever I’m traveling, I want to be as comfortable as possible since there is usually a lot of walking involved. Skip the heels and opt for a chic pair of comfortable shoes for your trip. You’ll be happy you did!
Airport Accessories Must-Haves
If you’re wondering what kind of accessories to pack for your travel day, I got you covered! Firstly, for those early morning/red-eye flights consider packing cat-eye sunglasses to hide those tired eyes. Next, a good pair of socks to keep your feet warm on the plane. A pair of affordable noise-canceling headphones go a long way in the airport. Finally, I never leave for a trip without my portable backup chargers.
Airport Looks from Amazon
Finally, for my amazon shopper gals on a budget, I’ve put together a list of airport looks from Amazon. They’re all affordable and I happen to have a couple of these sets myself.
