The airport runway has taken on a whole new meaning this summer; it’s no longer the norm to wear your old leggings and sweatshirts for travel. Celebrities, fashion bloggers, and jet setters alike have stepped up their game in airports all around the world.

Whether you are road tripping in America or flying across the globe, the key is to choose pieces that are both stylish and comfortable. Below are some of my essential tips for the perfect look that is cool and trendy, yet unbelievably comfortable and relaxed for your flight.

Wear sweatpants.

Put away the old sweatpants you wear around your house and stock up on a few chic pairs for your travel. Since airports and airplanes are always freezing, sweatpants will keep you warm and cozy throughout the flight. Below are cute ones that can be paired with a solid or graphic tee of your choice.

Update your leggings.

Leggings are a necessity for travel as they are stretchy, movable, and thin. You can find them in a multitude of colors and patterns to easily spice up your travel look. These are my personal favorites, perfect for your journey to any destination and can also be worn throughout your trip.

Bring a sweatshirt.

Temperatures can change from hot to cold when you’re traveling. Therefore, it’s important to always plan to layer by starting with a tee or tank and putting a sweatshirt on over. Fun printed and colored sweatshirts can help add a pop of color to your outfit.

Carry a cool backpack.

Carry a backpack for items that you need to keep with you at all times. Pick one that will both complement your outfit and provide storage for essential items such as your wallet, passport, phone, computer, and snacks.

Stick with sneakers.

Sneakers are my favorite type of shoe for travel. Not only are they comfortable, but they are easy to slip on and off during airport security. All of the sneakers below are great choices for travel this summer.
