5 ways to nail airport fashion approved by Deepika, Sonam and other stars

Whether you like it or not, airport style is here to stay

Ruling the red carpets is easy when you have a team of stylists in attendance, but trying to keep up with your street cred on-the-go is where the struggle gets real. Not that Deepika Padukone would know much about it; the actress flawlessly parades a never-ending queue of winning looks at the airport. Sonam Kapoor is just as guilty; pulling together chic ensembles for flights at ungodly hours.

Could it be as simple as a formula? We went a-lookin’ for answers, and here’s what we have to report.

5 celebrity-approved tricks to nailing airport fashion


Kareena Kapoor Khan

Skyscraper heels are all well and good, but you won’t catch Kareena dead in a starched suit with designer pumps pinching her toes to an early death. The new momma is all about comfy chic when she’s navigating airport queues, choosing a slew of slogan tees, khaki jackets and blissfully flat sneakers. All cinched together with a Louis Vuitton tote, of course.


Alia Bhatt

The 24-year-old superstar is big on dressing her age, but she has a trump card hidden up her sleeve when it comes to the airport style stakes: The Dear Zindagi star breaks the monotony of her monochrome outfits with a bright pop of colour, courtesy her (self-replenishing) handbag collection. 


Anushka Sharma

Anushka would like to give Kareena a resounding amen; the Phillauri producer likes her fashion to be functional. Comfy denims, full-sleeved tees and white kicks line her fuss-free airport wardrobe, usually accessorised with the latest book she’s reading. A girl after our own heart, this one.

Sonam Kapoor

Not one to let down her guard just because she has a million hour flight to board, Instagram’s darling knows how to work in her it-girl style for her off-duty looks. Sonam Kapoor is a firm believer in layering: Light suits, sweeping jackets and crop tops play a recurring role in her airport wardrobe. The only nod to comfort is a customary pair of sneakers.

Deepika Padukone

The girl has enough airport fashion hits by now to rival her box office successes. The winning formula that never lets her down? White tank top + statement jacket. From patent leather jackets to printed bombers, Deepika manages to look like a million bucks while the tank keeps her comfortable enough to unwind on long flights. Sounds like a win-win for everyone.
