Celebrity Airport Style for Less: Karlie Kloss
Comfort is key for Karlie Kloss when flying, if this photo from Cannes is any indication. Her look is somehow both timeless and trendy, comfy and put together. By sticking with a mix of neutrals and classic silhouettes, this travel outfit can easily be mixed and matched with other packed items to extend a capsule wardrobe. If you want to maximize a small suitcase, stick with neutrals like black, white, and denim and add pops of colour and pattern with accessories.
The relaxed boyfriend fit of Karlie’s denim is perfect for flying longer distances, especially if you’re cooped up in economy like most of us. The cuffed cropped length is also a good transitional length if you’re moving between climates. The addition of a slim leather belt adds a little sophistication to the outfit, though you’ll likely have to take it off during security screenings.
I’ve held the belief for awhile now that classic Superga sneakers make great travel shoes. White canvas is especially versatile as they’ll go with literally everything in your suitcase. While you might be scared of stark white sneakers, canvas can be cleaned with detergent or a bleach solution so no need to worry.
A backpack is a smart carryon choice since it’ll mean your hands are free to carry a cup of coffee and your boarding pass. And you won’t need to worry about accidentally smacking someone in an aisle seat with your large cross-body bag as you board. If you want to up the style factor look for a small-midsized one with a structured shape in leather or faux-leather.
