Summer isn’t over quite yet! I still have a couple more trips on the horizon as I round out my summer plans (ciao Italia!) so I’m currently deep in outfit and trip planning and ensuring I have my favorite travel items packed. Traveling during the summer is such a blast, but it can also be crazy/hectic/HOT/stressful. Anyone else remember the travel debacle that was Summer 2022? When it comes to getting your vacation off on the right foot, I think picking the right airplane travel outfit is key. When you feel comfortable, cozy, and stylish you can sit back and relax. Today I’m sharing a round-up of comfortable but stylish airplane travel outfits for the summer season.
10 Summer Airplane Travel Outfit Ideas
1. T-Shirt Dress and Denim Jacket
A classic airplane outfit! You really can’t go wrong with a comfy t-shirt dress and a denim jacket. I find it’s great to travel in your heavier/bulkier items (like a denim jacket or leather jacket) so you don’t have to worry about stuffing them in your suitcase.
2. Matching Set
For those flights when you’re worried about freezing in the air conditioning, a cozy matching set is just the ticket! I think dressing in a monochromatic color scheme helps make you look a bit more pulled together.
3. Midi Skirt and Sneakers
If you’re hopping off the plane and getting right to a vacation activity, I think a midi skirt (with a stretchy waistband for comfort!) with some cute sneakers is great look.
4. Jeans and T-Shirt
For a short flight, I think a classic jeans and tee outfit is so chic! Wear closed to shoes for the plane and pack a cute pair of sandals in your carryon to easily switch up the look when you get to your destination.
5. Workout Set
If stretch and comfort are your main priorities, I think a workout set can be great for airplane travel. Plus, you can easily add or remove layers depending on the temperature.
6. Midi Dress and Light Jacket
A dress that covers most of your legs can be great for warmth on the airplane, plus a light jacket for an extra layer. Shed the jacket when you arrive at your destination and you’re summer ready!
7. Trousers and T-Shirt
For a more polished alternative to a matching sweatsuit set, I think soft and comfy trousers with a t-shirt is a great option. Choose your fabric depending on your travel destination to ensure you can mix and match.
8. Smocked Dress
Traveling in a smocked dress is great for summer because it’s cute, stretchy, and wrinkles minimally! Plus, you’ll probably be the best dressed person on the plane. Hill House dresses are some of my favs!
9. Cropped T-Shirt and Leggings
Another classic airport outfit! A cropped t-shirt and leggings is easy to reach for when you have no idea what to wear. Add a chic ball cap or cute jacket to take the outfit up a notch.
10. Printed Dress
When you’re en route to somewhere fabulous, I think the occasion calls for a fun printed dress! Plus, you’ll be able to re-wear upon arrival.
