Celebrities bring new trends to the airport

Lets be real, a lot of the excitement of summer comes with having the chance to travel. Whether its stateside or international, nothing really compares to the excitement of being in an airport. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been through TSA enough times to know how annoying the process is; nonetheless, catching a flight will always be a big deal.

I think finding a travel outfit can be harder than even packing for the whole trip. Particularly because you have to consider so many factors. You want to be comfortable, but appropriate. Then when you try to dress for the hot weather outside, you have to consider the fact that it  is most likely going to be freezing on the plane. There are just so many elements.

Thus, the need for athleisure. Here me out! It’s a word that was created some years ago to describe the mix of athletic wear and the leisure of casual wear.  There’s a whole market for clothing to take you from here to there, without having to wear those basic gray sweats, joggers, or leggings.

A lot of designers have pieces that are described as “gym-to-the-office.” But, it doesn’t take a designer dime to find a look that allows comfort to meet fashion, and celebrities are caught doing it on a consistent basis. If you ever stop to notice those paparazzi flicks of your faves at airports all over the countries, they are always making it work.

Just get into these looks! Up above, (top left) Jessica Alba never disappoints, she’s always drop dead gorgeous with flawless skin. Adding the fedora and military jacket bring color, but her feature is the shoe, over a pair of good joggers!

Next up is Cara Delevingne, she uses the ever classic chuck taylor to bring edge to her look with sunglasses and a loose white  t-shirt over her printed fitted joggers.

Lastly, there is no way we could leave out Selena Gomez! She looks like a complete boss traveling abroad in Paris. White heels, a black bag, and a sweatsuit.

This style is all about mixing it  up. Don’t be afraid to try looks that don’t typically go together. Just remember to be comfortable and let your style do all there rest.
