Since I started my travel journey a few years ago, there are a lot of people that have asked me to write about what to wear at the airport to be comfortable and still look stylish. So read on and see what my tricks are to putting comfy and chic looks together. This article is organized by month so you can get a better idea about the weather in general. I live in Michigan so most of the looks were taken in Metro Detroit Airport.
Key Words for Winter travel:Loose and Layering
From Detroit to Key West in January
My tricks: Cashmere coat + cashmere sweater + legging + sneakers
Fly from 20s degree to 70s degree, I layer a tee underneath my sweater, so I can take off my sweater when I land.
From Detroit to Shanghai, China in February
My tricks: Cozy fur vest + leather jacket + loose lightweight sweater + legging + flat booties
In February, the temperatures are very similar between Shanghai, China and Detroit, Michigan. It is usually around 20 degrees. But more than 10 hours fly time requires a very comfy outfit to handle it. The temperature usually changes during the flight, sometimes it can feel quite cold when I am sleeping next to the window. When it is getting hot, I just take off the vest, the jacket and only wear the lightweight sweater.
Key Words for Spring travel:Oversized scarf and suits
From Detroit to London in March
My tricks: Blazer + lightweight sweater + matching flare loose pants + flat shoes + oversized scarf
The matching suit makes a very stylish statement look and the oversized scarf comes in handy when I landed in London in the early morning.
From Houston to Detroit in March
My tricks: Blazer + lightweight sweater with a tank top underneath + loose pants + sneakers
Houston in March can be very warm, so I wore the tank top with the blazer when I was there and added on the sweater when I landed in Detroit.
Key Words for Summer travel: Trench Coat and Denim Jacket
From Detroit to Paris in June
My tricks: Trench coat + tee + jeans + sneakers
Even in June or July, Paris still can be chilly and there were a few days there only at 50s degree in the evening. So a trench coat defiantly is a must to take to Europe during the summer time there.
From Detroit to New York in August
My tricks: Denim jacket + loose dress + flats
Even when it is the hottest month of the year, travel by air still can be chilly so I always wear my denim jacket.
Key Words for Fall travel: Jeans and leather Jacket
From Detroit to Athens in October
My tricks: Blazer + cropped jeans + sneakers + oversized scarf
Long flight requires comfy clothes. This oversized scarf is super lightweight and warm enough for covering me up when I was sleeping during the flight.
From Detroit to Denver in October
My tricks: leather jacket + sweater + jeans + sneakers + oversized scarf
During this month, Denver has beautiful blue skies in daylight but morning and evening hours, the temperature was quite low. So the leather jacket and oversized scarf are must-haves to keep me warm.
From Detroit to LA in November
My tricks: Fur west + lightweight sweater + cropped jeans + sneakers
November in Detroit, can be quite cold already. The fur vest is lightweight but warm enough to handle the cold temperature when I am in Michigan.
