Ever wondered what happened to those times when you could just pull on your most comfy pair of jeans and a two-sizes-too-large tee and your travel outfit was complete?
Do you suddenly feel quiet shabby and out of place in your practical travel gear that was more than adequate not so long ago?
The answer is celebrity high fliers and over enthusiastic paparazzi hell bent on capturing every move on camera for posterity. This also means that all those economics classes at university were not a complete waste of time because the law of trickle down theory does indeed apply to celebrity style being adopted by non-celebrities. It should hardly come as a surprise then that airport looks are essential to maintaining every celebrity’s style quotient.
Obviously we all still love red carpet outings but there is a certain realness and attainability to airport looks that serve as reminders that celebrities also need to get from point A to point B with the only difference being that they look flawless while doing it.
Another massive perk of celebrity airport looks lies in their simplicity, which means they can be easily replicated with very similar pieces from your favourite high street brands. For those wondering why they would need to stalk celebrity pictures in travel attire, it’s no longer enough to pack those itsy bitsy bikinis, jaw dropping clubbing clothes or cushy winter wear for the actual holiday because these days the holiday begins as soon as you step into the terminal.
Therefore, whatever your personal style, there is a tarmac-bound celebrity warrior guaranteed to serve up a dose of inspiration for the next time you find yourself printing your boarding pass and packing your bags for that long awaited break from it all. As always we are here to help you get out of those dreadfully dated travel clothes and get into some uber stylish threads with the help of some much loved celebrities who nail the airport look every single time.
She might light up the red carpet with her style choices but that doesn’t mean she can’t do the same with her airport looks.

Although, like any style chameleon she knows how to break up her airport looks with a bright coloured ensemble every once in a while.

Grungy punk meets glamazon best describes Priyanka Chopra’s style. Fitted ripped jeans and structured jackets paired with a wide array of boots and hand bags in all shapes and sizes make up her airport looks. Given how much time she spends shuttling between Mumbai and Los Angeles it’s no wonder that PC knows a thing or two about how to travel chic and shows it off every time.
