I love people watching at the airport. I’d love to be an airport paparazzi but I don’t think that airport securities would appreciate me doing that so instead of harassing people for pictures I jotted down a few airplane outfit ideas I recently saw in European airports and thought I would share my favorites with you!


Best Real People Airplane Outfit Ideas


Mastering the perfect outfit to wear on an airplane is no easy feat. You have the plane climate and destination climate to consider, and you want to feel stylish while looking good.


Tip: Creating an interchangeable capsule wardrobe is the key to simplified packing, which can easily fit into a carryon suitcase with the help of packing cubes to compress your clothing!   


Regardless of your style, we’ve created the best airplane outfit ideas:

  • Easy comfort
  • Glam globetrotter
  • Easy breezy
  • Rocker chic
  • Trench
  • Pretty in pink
  • Boho

Now, see the outfits we created for each of these looks.

Easy Comfort Airplane Outfit


This by far is the easiest airport outfit for anyone to duplicate. Easy to wear basics in neutral interchangeable colors plus a few stylish accessories – simple flight fashion!

The perfect formula for an easy to wear comfortable airplane outfit is a classic combo of fitted tee plus leggings. Pair with a cute yet cozy layer such as a long cardigan and shoes that are easy to remove to go through security.

Editor’s Tip Pick for an Airplane Outfit


This look is definitely for the ultra-glam jetsetter. I saw this airport outfit on a woman as she went through security and I couldn’t help but stare in awe at her elegance and designer style. I’m not sure I could pull this off but cheers to you if you can!

Airplane Outfit for a Beach Vacation


What a great look if you’re headed to a warm destination! I’d definitely carry a cardigan with me in my personal item for the in-flight chills but this is sexy, sophisticated and a cool take on this season’s neutral – military green.

First Class Airplane Outfit


This outfit is definitely more up my alley, at least when traveling to cities. The one issue is the metal on the jacket and boots but they’re easy to take off as you go through the security line. Totally worth a little effort.

Casual yet Chic Airplane Outfit


Understated elegance, this classic look seems to be a timeless airport outfit in Europe since I saw women of all ages sporting an ensemble such as this. The trench was EVERYWHERE at Heathrow airport in November and rightfully so. It’s an investment piece that’s sure to stand the test of time.

Feminine Airplane Outfit


I absolutely love this airplane style outfit and can imagine an epic picture in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The neutral wardrobe is offset by the bold statement coat which is a great travel strategy when traveling in the winter. After all, your pictures will mostly be of you in a coat, why not make it a great one?

Boho Cozy Airplane Outfit


This look took me by surprise but I really like the unexpected combination. Easy to wear, comfortable pieces with weather-friendly boots and a few key boho pieces that exude editorial-worthy confidence. Love it!


Aside from the wardrobe choices above, what stood out above all was that all these travelers had freshly styled hair and makeup, which really adds the finishing touch to even the most casual of airport ensembles. Don’t forget that a good blow dry and mascara goes a long way!
