Your ticket to reaching your destination in style
Should you peruse geotagged locations for the world’s major airports on Instagram, you’ll notice that the tarmac outside departures is increasingly becoming the new place to showcase your personal style before hopping on a flight.
In short: flawless airport outfits are no longer solely the domain of paparazzi-bait celebrities. Each time I find myself bleary-eyed and searching for coffee at the airport, I inevitably see someone whose travel attire makes it look like they have their life sussed out.
Yet, perhaps nailing an outfit that’s equal parts stylish and practical is not as difficult as blagging your way into first class. After careful consideration, it seems that there’s a formula to it.
