Summer Holidays: What You Need To Rock At The Airport
We bet you can’t wait to jet off and enjoy a break in the sun. Once your packing’s done and you know everything’s in check, you only have one more thing to think about: the airport outfit.
You’ll know yourself that what you decide to wear will impact how you feel. If you’re looking to be on-trend for drinks at the airport lounge or to feel comfy on a long flight, this fashion guide — put together by long sleeve t-shirt retailer QUIZMAN — will set you straight on how to dress in style and comfort when you check-in.
If you’ve never been on a long-haul flight before, chances are that you’ll have to wait in the airport even longer than usual — although this may not initially be a problem, you then need to sit through an entire flight. So, comfort merged with style is crucial to make your commute pass swiftly.
You want to feel confident, so this is something you should aim for before heading to the airport. Go for a plain tee in a shade that matches the band on your side-stripe joggers — this clothing piece was on all the catwalks at international fashion shows. Match with neutral-colour, lace sneakers that are easy to slip on and off at security and throw over a light-weight bomber, or boxy denim jacket that’s easy to roll up and put under your seat during the flight.
Your next business trip
For any business trip, you still need to achieve that level of formality. Take inspiration from your normal work wardrobe, but just tweak it slightly to make it airport-appropriate — this means not wearing anything tight and restrictive, or too many accessories that might cause a headache at security.
Check patterns are back and they’re here to say. Whether you go for larger window pane checks or a smaller grid check, a square-pattern blazer over a plain, long-sleeve, buttoned-up Oxford shirt delivers the perfect upper body style fit for a business-focused flight. Pair with stretch jeans to tone down the formality and offer you extra comfort for the journey, then finish off with tan brogues.
A simple city getaway
No matter what time of year it is, you can always count on a cheap city break. Then, you need an outfit with an on-trend, urban look when you check-in for the flight. Opt for a casual, short-sleeve shirt in a block colour and pair it with cropped, mid-weight trousers. Tonal dressing is big in men’s fashion right now, so choose a colour you know looks good on you and get your top, pants and shoes in different shades of it. You may need a jacket when you land if you’re heading somewhere with a cool climate, like a city in northern Europe, but make sure you opt for something flexible and light — a stripe or chevron, zip windbreaker is ideal.
Most people head out straight from the airport, so you want to look good from the get-go. So, put together a look that fits a bar or restaurant crowd to make sure you can head straight out after check-in.
Pull on a pair of turn-up jeans, which was a massive trend in men’s fashion weeks, and combine with a contrast polo shirt for an on-point, smart-casual look that’s fresh for summer 2018. Polish off the outfit with a chrome watch that’s easy to take off at the security scanner, and end with a pair of suede loafers — the ideal men’s shoe for summer.
Prepping for a beach getaway
Everyone deserves a beach holiday at some point this year. Tropical prints are definitely in this season, so button-up a short-sleeve shirt featuring a palm tree pattern and pull on a pair of beige or blue stretch shorts for the ultimate beach-ready look that’ll be ideal from stepping straight off the plane to standing on the beach behind a selfie frame. If you don’t fancy wearing shorts at the airport bar, go for light-coloured chinos with a vertical-stripe shirt — a pattern that will be everywhere in men’s fashion throughout summer this year. Boat shoes make perfect holiday footwear, or you can opt for slip-on canvas sneakers for the same laid-back effect.
