If there’s one thing we can count on celebrities for, it’s looking shockingly put together at the airport. From effortless athleisure ensembles to drool-worthy yet casual denim looks, these ladies have mastered the chic yet comfortable styling required for a day of travel. Personally, I never want to sit through a long layover or an extended delay feeling constricted by tight jeans or anything even remotely uncomfortable, no matter how fashionable the outfit. And while I won't be photographed by paparazzi on the tarmac to find my style sense splashed all over the Internet anytime soon, that doesn't mean I want to wear sweatpants when making my first impressions off the plane, either. Enter: lucy indiGO — a line of premium, ergonomic, and ready-to-wear styles by activewear brand, lucy, that strikes the just right balance of comfort and chic for every destination.
Hitting the beaches of Santorini right off the plane? Slip a chic, ultra-light jacket over your favorite summer dress, and just add oversized sunnies for a look that spans any time zone. Jet-setting to Aspen for a weekend on the slopes? Layer up in the perfect jogger pant, a go-with-everything black topper and your best cold-weather boots. You’ll be off the plane and après skiing in no time. Need some more options? We've partnered with lucy activewear to create this easy guide for mastering airport style, no matter where you’re escaping to next. Use these four simple tips to elevate your next travel look from standby to first class, stat.
1. Kiss Your Uncomfortable Jeans Goodbye.
Trade more constricting styles (like denim) for a polished pant with a sporty sensibility. Pair this look with a graphic tank top and It-girl sneakers for a look that's chic and comfortable from the boarding gate through baggage claim.
2. Layer, Layer, Layer.
Never leave home without an oh-so-cool layering piece to combat the fickle temps of the travel experience. This ensemble will keep you content, whether you're stuck in a so-hot-you-can't-breathe terminal, or a cold-as-ice overnight flight.
3. Never Underestimate The Power Of A Coordinating Set.
Reach your destination with ease by pairing complementing duos in premium stretch fabric, and finish with polished sneakers. A tie-front top is the the ideal feminine finishing touch.
