9 Fashionable Plane Outfits for the Winter
Table Of Contents
It’s edgy, trendy, classic and absolutely editorial worthy – this winter travel outfit says fashionista from head to toe. This is an incredibly versatile choice for women that know how to rock a comfortable but chic style.
The trainers ooze travel shoe comfort, while the structured coat offers a sophisticated touch to balance the more casual jeans and easy to wear turtle neck. This is definitely one of our top picks!
A perfectly prim look for destinations that won’t greet you with torrential rain or snow, this winter travel outfit offers timeless style that you can wear for years to come without worrying that any piece will go out of style.
To wear an outfit like this it’s all in the fit. Make sure your jacket isn’t too bulky for your frame and the length of your jeans is hemmed to your height. Having a great tailor guarantees you’ll always look on point whether you’re rocking an investment coat or even a pair of sweats. They way a garment falls on your body is everything.
If all you ever wanted in a travel outfit was a basic look that offered more function than fashion, keep your accessories top of mind. A pair of understated feminine earrings plus statement purse can make even a standard puffer vest and cable knit sweater look Insta-ready.
Wondering how the most simple outfits look great on fashion bloggers? The hair and makeup adds a nice touch as we’ve learned from this Europe travel outfits post!
How did a pair of leggings and oversized tee ever look so good? Again, it’s all in the accessories!
Even the very functional, weather-appropriate rain boots enhance the look with a neutral color that isn’t the ever-popular black. Add a structured handbag and a beautiful winter coat and your weather-appropriate from the moment you get on the plane. Read this post for even more waterproof boots!
This look is not for the fashion-novice. Pulling off an oversized trench, sweats, and casual sneakers can be translated in many ways when it comes to airplane fashion.
However, this seems to be the winter travel outfit of choice for many fashionistas as I saw at the airport two weeks ago. If you can pull it off, you get bonus points. Are you up for the challenge?
Oh how I love this look. It has all the hues in my favorite capsule wardrobe color story: black, grey, white, and blue. Plus, I totally need to add this passport cover to my wish list!
If you’re stuck in an all-black outfit rut or want to break-free from a monotone wardrobe, this is a safe selection without steering to far away from your comfort zone. Purple lipstick optional.
This winter travel outfit may seem a bit much but in reality it’s only a sweater dress with leggings – anyone can wear that! Plus, it’s comfortable and functional, too. Want a safer bet? This is my go-to merino wool travel dress.
Loving these statement winter coats for winter. From red to pink and bright vivid blue – they sure can pack a punch! Another reason why we love them this season is because a bright color looks amazing against a grey, drab, and even rainy backdrop.
Not only will they breathe life into your travel wardrobe but they’ll make your travel pictures fashionable, too. Love it!
As the temperature drops, our gear gets a bit warmer to suit the snowy weather. Sorel’s boots are the must-have footwear of the season and pair well with leggings or basic jeans. Add a packable down jacket and stay warm all winter long!
For a snowy visit with a slightly less casual look, this set is weather-ready and features a more traditional boot-like option. A touch of fur is totally on trend this season and a nice collection of non-boring neutrals to bring a bit of interest to a basic-black winter travel wardrobe.
Here are a few tips on how to efficiently get through security as your travel clothing thickens for the winter:
- Place all jewelry or metal accessories in your personal item or coat pocket
- Wear boots with faux-laces that can easily zip on and off instead of being laced
- Take your shoes off before you get to the front of the line, why wait?
- Always remove your shoes, scarf, hat, and coat – even before security tells you to
- Be prepared to place all the above items into a bin through security
These are steps that you can always take in advance so you are never held up in security, no matter if you’re wearing flip-flops or boots.

Thanks for the amazing time, Quebec City! It seriously couldn’t have been a better host city for #WITS18 – they went above and beyond in welcoming us to the area and showing us all it had to offer. Not to mention the city itself is gorgeous! An easy must-see for your summer travels this year ❤️ Here’s one last shot of me at the airport with ALL of the booth gear Sydney and I hauled along for the trip.
