Whether you’re plotting an escape to a secluded island or ready to take a long-awaited European holiday, airport outfits are just as important as the looks packed away inside your luggage. Long flights require wardrobe essentials that are comfortable, and it doesn’t hurt if they are a sartorial hit, too. If you’re not sure what to wear during your next getaway, who better to look to for inspiration than the celebrities who are constantly jet-setting.
Recently while arriving in New York City, Angelina Jolie demoed an elevated way to style a wide-leg pair of jeans. A sharp blazer and a beautiful tote always pull the laidback look together. And over in Cannes, Cate Blanchett gave us a chic lesson in layering, with a turtleneck, button-down blouse, and blazer. Airplanes are notoriously quite chilly, so a look with versatile layers always comes in handy.
Ahead you’ll find more airport outfits to keep in mind for your next escape.
Jolie is constant proof that minimal dressing doesn’t have to be boring. Follow her lead and play with proportions, from flowy wide-leg trousers to fitted trench coats.
While on set for her new film The Perfect Find, Union’s character delivered major travel-outfit inspiration with a blouson-sleeve top, jeans, a rose gold-trimmed luggage set, and a coveted (always sold out) Telfar bag.
Never underestimate the power of a classic blazer. It’s always the perfect layering piece, especially on airplanes.
Don’t be afraid to have fun with color. Mirren’s monochromatic look feels just right for any summer escape.

Go straight from the airplane to dinner with a going-out top and colorful bag similar to Park’s.
A matching set always takes the guesswork out of getting ready—channel Kruger with a playful, pink number and pearl-embellished shoes.
Take your denim game to the next level with a lime jacket and skirt. And be sure to finish off the look with a comfortable pair of loafers and a coveted handbag, like Turner-Smith’s Gucci Diana bag.
Tuck baggy sweats into a pair of sleek boots. And add a polishing touch with a chic camel coat.
Protect an all-white outfit with a longline jacket. And take a cue from Beauvais with a pretty marble piece of luggage.
Comfort doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style; an easy-going set-like Alba’s Maurie & Eve two-piece number will ensure you feel and look your best. If you want to add a little height to your outfit, platform sneakers, like this Converse pair will do the trick. And don’t forget your mask.
