Ready For Take Off? 10 Celebrity-Inspired Outfits to Ensure Your Trip Is a Sartorial Success

·5 min read

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.
