Since my style, also known as “no style,” isn’t necessarily everyone’s cup of tea – I’ve reached out to the ever-chic @imagecreation for her “airport uniform.” Once again, she has kindly and generously taken the time to share her go-to outfit.
Here’s what she writes:
Travel as Light as Possible
Comfort is Key
I’m with @imagecreation when it comes to comfort and utility. It is my number one priority when preparing for a flight whether it’s two or twenty hours.
For dashing through security, I wear sneakers that are easy to slip on and off and prepare thick socks. (I don’t even want to think about how cruddy the floor is.) I use the same socks on the plane. If it’s an extra-long flight, VNg and I usually pack disposable slippers (not all airlines give them out these days) or put our flip flops in our carry on so we can get up and stretch our legs with minimal effort.
The leggings I choose are a sportier style. I try to workout on vacay, so leggings (and sneakers) do double duty. Since they’re such a basic travel item, I prefer styles with special details at the hem or side. My favorites have pretty laser cutouts. For extra long flights, choose softer styles with less compression. I love Victoria’s Secret’s Everywhere Legging.
Oversized cowl neck hoodies are concealing, flattering, warm, and cozy. I love feeling bundled on the plane. Plus, having the pouch is useful for my ticket, wallet, or phone if I’m listening to music and drifting off to sleep.
Since I’m not as classy as @imagecreation, I swap out a Birkin for a backpack. It’s perfect for my sketchbook, art supplies, iPad, camera, beauty pouch, and other essentials. I never know how the day will end up at the airport. I could be standing in some line for hours or sleeping on the floor overnight. It’s resilient and I won’t feel sad if it’s shoved under someone’s seat.
