12 Mar Style File – How to nail the airport look!
You all know that I travel a lot, to be honest I have lost count of the flights I have taken. Mostly I travel within India and you may think that only traveling within one country doesn’t take a lot of time but let me tell you – just the other day on our trip home from Kolkata we got stuck in traffic to the airport for four hours and so it took me a crazy 12 hours from door to door – that’s as long as it takes to travel from my house in Germany to my house in Mumbai. So learning the art of traveling in comfort and looking great at the same time has taken me 10 years to perfect, and today I would like to share my secrets with you on how to dress for a long flight!
The secret is: Layer, layer, layer! Not just because the weather might be different at your destination but simply because the climate at the airport could be anything from fridge to sauna. Choosing a shirt dress is always a good bet since you can pair it up with a leggings if you feel cold, or a cool jacket on top. For an interesting style statement, chose a poppy colour, mine being pastel pink! On a recent trip to our capital New Delhi I picked this beautiful piece from the CREO x Doodlage collection. The best part about it being sustainable fashion made of scrap fabrics – what’s better than fashion that gives back! Read our SFD article on this collection here.
I also recommend you wear comfortable shoes, carry an extra shawl in case you feel cold quickly and always go for minimal make-up. Don’t forget to drink a lot of water to hydrate from the inside out and carry a big fluffy pillow if you’re flying overnight! This should keep you well for your next journey!
