We see a lot of sweatpants at the airport, but a bit of travel shouldn't mean that you shouldn't have on a cute outfit when you arrive at your destination. That's especially true when you're traveling for the holidays. Just follow our tips for smart travel style below, then click on for the street style inspiration — and be ready to wow anyone who meets you at the terminal.
- It's all about the basics. Think comfort, like skinny jeans and a t-shirt to start, when putting together your look.
- The trick is finishing easy separates with cool layers. An open cardigan will feel cozy and a little bohemian, a leather jacket has that model-off-duty effect, and a blazer provides a sophisticated edge.
- To finish it all off, remember that comfortable footwear can be just as cute and so much more practical than heels (no one wants to be hobbling around the airport!). Look to wedge sneakers, ballet flats, oxfords, or ankle booties for a perfect travel shoe.
