Heading off on a much-needed vacay? Once you've planned your holiday outfits, the next thing you'll want to think about is your jet-setting style. 

Picking an airport-appropriate outfit is all about comfort – we all want to sit back and relax with a coffee (or champagne!) while waiting to fly. Plus, once you've got on the plane, getting cosy is a must, especially if you're on it for the long haul. 

From activewear to a jumpsuit or a breezy summer dress, we've scoured the high street for the best in-flight fashion inspired by the most stylish celebrities. From Bella Hadid's go-to tracksuits to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's jeans and blazer ensemble and Victoria Beckham's graphic tee and wide-leg trousers - who says we can't treat the airport runway like…well, just that?

How we chose the best airport outfits

  • Celebrity-inspired: No one travels in style quite like a celeb. Often photographed at the airport, they're always on their fashion A-game, so we've taken inspiration from their most-loved in-flight outfits.
  • Comfort: When it comes to flying, feeling comfortable is without a doubt the number one consideration. We've only chosen pieces we'd be happy to sit around in for at least several hours.
  • Price: Celebrities love their designer garms but we've kept things on the more affordable side - every item included is under £100.

The best airport outfit ideas to shop this summer

  • Bella Hadid airport tracksuit© Marc Piasecki

    Bella Hadid

    Let's be real – there's no outfit more comfortable than a tracksuit. Bella has one of our favourite airport styles - she's been spotted in leather blazers with wide-leg trousers and jeans with sweaters, but by far most frequently, a cool tracksuit with a pair of trainers. Just add gold jewellery and you're ready to go.

  • Nike Dunks

    Nike Dunk Low Trainers

    Bella loves her Nike Dunks, as does Hailey Bieber and Khloe Kardashian. Not all casual kicks are created equally and these will take you everywhere in ultimate comfort.

  • Elsa Hosk airport© Rachpoot/Bauer-Griffin

    Elsa Hosk

    If you want something slightly more chic than a tracksuit, take inspiration from Elsa Hosk who levelled up the classic loungewear look with a cashmere cardigan and matching trousers by LESET. She completed the outfit with a pair of loafers.

  • ASOS headband

    ASOS DESIGN Jersey Headband

    If you don't want to wear your hair up but prefer it out of your face for a long haul flight, a headband like Elsa's is the perfect compromise. 

  • Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is seen at Los Angeles International Airport © BG023/Bauer-Griffin

    Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

    Rosie Huntington-Whiteley always looks put together at the airport and is often pictured wearing a pair of straight-leg jeans with a shirt, blazer or lightweight knit. Plus, she's rarely seen without a huge pair of sunglasses.

  • & Other Stories jeans

    & Other Stories Slim-Cut Jeans

    There's no rule that says you can't wear jeans - especially for short haul. Made from stretchy denim with a flattering high-rise fit, we'd recommend & Other Stories' Slim-Cut pair - AKA Princess Kate's go-to jeans. 

  • Arket blazer

    Arket Oversized Blazer

    If you're heading somewhere with a slight chill, make sure to add an effortless blazer into the mix like Rosie. This one from Arket is fully lined with a comfy oversized, single-breasted design. Made from a wool blend twill, it's a forever piece.

  • Victoria Beckham airport outfit© starzfly/Bauer-Griffin

    Victoria Beckham

    VB's most frequently worn airport outfit is a pair of trending wide-leg trousers, a graphic white tee and always oversized black sunnies.

  • M&S wide-leg trousers

    Marks & Spencer Wide-Leg Trousers

    Marks & Spencer's wide-leg trousers are smart and comfortable in equal measure. They have a comfy elasticated waist and a classic tailored fit.

  • GANNI t-shirt

    GANNI T-Shirt

    A colourful GANNI graphic tee is a piece you'll wear on repeat. Pair it with wide-leg trousers and trainers or boots for the airport.

  • Andie MacDowell airport© Marc Piasecki

    Andie MacDowell

    Andie MacDowell proves you can definitely wear a dress to the airport. They're perfect if you're stepping off the plane into a much hotter climate.
