How to ace airport fashion like your favourite Korean pop idols
Cool Airport Style
Not only is K-pop taking over the world and breaking records worldwide, the idols are also slaying the game with their airport fashion.
While many of us opt for comfortable looks of T-shirts and jogger pants, Blackpink’s Lisa, Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, Suzy Bae show that the airport is another runway to show off your keen eye for style.
Ahead, our favourite looks and tips to ace your next travel ensemble.
Swapping your contact lenses for a pair of glasses not only adds a dose of preppy chic, but it also prevents any discomfort and irritation from the dry, recycled aeroplane air. Taeyeon also shows us how to wear an oversized knit stylishly – that’s slightly off-shoulders.
While many might opt for neutral (read: plain) colours while travelling, Suzy Bae isn’t afraid to shake things up with brighter colours. She balanced her statement-making fiery red tulle skirt with a light grey jumper and the popular Dior Book Tote.
Another way to dip your toes and add a pop of colour to your ensemble is to go with a bright knit like beloved singer IU. Matching it with an oversized jacket and distressed denim ensures that you look youthful and fresh.
To help you get in the mood of your tropical island vacation, why not start with your airport fashion? Take a leaf from Joy of Red Velvet and dress up in a breezy floral sundress and match it with a large tote (which is a bag size you should be seen carrying, btw) that can store all your travel essentials – our kind of bag to take on vacation.
Say you woke up late and you’re rushing to catch your flight before the gate closes. There’s no reason why you still can’t look on point. Just throw on a grungy leather jacket like Sunmi and you’re good to go. But we suggest opting for low-cut shoes to avoid the hassle of getting in and out of high-cut boots at immigration.
