With the holidays coming up, there’s a good chance you will be spending a lot of your time at the airport or on a plane—getting home, heading back to school, going on a vacation, or flying to see relatives—phew! That’s a lot of traveling, and often a lot of stress. Even if holiday travel has you feeling a little bit frazzled this season, your style doesn’t have to reflect it. Just take a cue from your favorite celebs with on-point style, and you can still manage to look chic and put together, all while staying comfy at the airport this season. Below, we rounded up three of our favorite celeb airport looks and showed you how to get their jetsetting looks for less!
1. Olivia Palermo
For the ultimate comfy travel look, steal Olivia Palermo’s cozy knit poncho. This piece does double duty – not only is it super chic and on-trend, but it feels like carrying a blanket around the airport with you! (And who wouldn’t want that?) We love the way she dresses it up by layering it with a chambray shirt and skinny jeans for a subtle denim-on-denim look. Add classic accessories like simple black flats and a timeless gold watch, and you’re ready to fly in style.

2. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
If you’ll be flying from some place cold to some place warm, or vice-versa, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s effortless layers are perfect for you. A long, blanket-esque cardigan is a great cozy piece for your flight and places with colder weather, but you can easily take it off to reveal a white tee and light-wash jeans if you travel to somewhere a little warmer. Top off the look with a chic felt wide-brim hat to hide messy hair and tired eyes.

3. Alexa Chung
Have somewhere to be once your flight lands and want to look sophisticated, but still stay comfortable en route? Get your travel outfit inspiration from the ultimate polished-yet-effortless style icon, Alexa Chung. The secret to Alexa’s put together look? Her classic blazer, which looks sharp without being too dressed up for the plane when paired with skinny jeans in a cool gray color. A blazer is a great way to dress up your outfit and add layers, which will keep you warm on the often-chilly airplane. Finish the look with simple black ankle booties, which have the added bonus of being easy to take on and off at the security line.
