20 Cute & Comfy Airport Outfits Perfect for Summer Travel

Summer travel season is here! If you’re looking for some cute ideas on what to wear to the airport when it’s hot out, this post has you covered.

While it may be summertime when you’re traveling, airports and airplanes tend to be freezing so layering is absolutely key!

Lightweight fabrics make great layering pieces; you’ll also want to consider your travel plans when choosing your outfit. Do you need to be ready for adventure straight off the plane or do you have time to stop and change your clothes?

Either way, here is plenty of inspiration and outfit ideas for what to wear while traveling this summer.

A matching loungewear set is an easy-go to when it comes to cute airport outfit ideas. Layer your crop top and lounge pants with a button-down top and you’re good to go!

This cozy two-piece set looks strikingly similar to this one from Z Supply. Get the look with an oversize white button-down like this one for your next trip.


This Free People look for less has been a bestseller for a reason! It’s cozy, comfy and crazy versatile. And, it’s a really comfortable airport outfit idea.

You can style this with sandals, with loafers like I did or with sneakers for comfortable travel.

If you’re worried you’ll be too warm, there’s also a shorts version of this set! It comes in a ton of different colors, too. Size down for the best fit.

Cute matching athleisure sets are an easy airport outfit that works in the summertime. Especially when styled with cute sneakers and crew socks; it’s trend-forward yet very comfortable.

Abercrombie has some of the best lounge shorts to recreate this look. I have several pairs of the vintage Sunday short, which comes in 8 colors and has matching sweatshirt options.

linen pieces

Linen is always a good look and works well as a summer airport outfit. It’s supposed to get a little wrinkled and the fabric is very breathable, making it a great choice for warm weather.

I nearly always travel with an extra sweater since airplanes can get cold. Throw one over your shoulders very an extra chic look.

You can also try a button-down linen top paired with trouser-like pants. For extra comfort, choose pants with an elastic waist like these viral pants from Amazon.

If you’re looking for a high-quality button-down to recreate this look, I highly recommend trying this one from Quince.

I don’t typically recommend traveling in shorts, especially for long flights. However, if you’re doing a short flight and headed to a warm destination, then you certainly can!

This baby blue linen shirt is lightweight and will help you get the look.

I’m a sucker for two-piece sets and I’ve been really loving this matching set. These really make for some of the best outfits.

It’s a similar fabric to Spanx Air Essentials and is incredibly cozy. Although I probably wouldn’t choose a white shirt to travel in, this set does come in 17 colors!

layers & leggings

You cannot go wrong with black leggings. Yes, even in the summertime!

Leggings are your best option for long-haul flights as they’re comfortable and stylish.

Go for comfortable shoes like white sneakers, to make this look more summer-appropriate. This is easily one of the best airport outfits no matter what time of year!

Joggers are always a good idea when it comes to comfy airport outfit ideas. Grab your favorite pair and throw on a cute top and denim jacket!

Layering with a denim jacket is a great choice if you’re traveling during the spring and summer months. It’s lightweight and can easily be layered over a tank top or basic tee.

I do recommend going for sneakers vs. sandals so you don’t have to walk through security checks barefoot.

This is another great example of airplane outfit ideas that transition well from off the plane to your next event in style! Perfect for when you don’t want to stop at your hotel to change.

travel trousers

Wide-leg trousers are a major spring fashion trend and they look really chic when traveling.

They’re also far more comfortable than traveling in blue jeans, and if you’re traveling for work they’re a great option so you’re ready to go as soon as you step off the plane.

Style that extra layer over the shoulders for a chic look. If you go for a simple outfit like a white top then grab a striped sweater like this one or other print to add some interest to your outfit.

black cargo pants airport outfit

Cargo pants are another great option for summer airport outfits. This pair I’m wearing is super lightweight and comfy yet practical.

If you choose long sleeves like this black top, make sure to pick a fabric that’s lightweight and breathable.

Some of the best airport outfits are all-black, so don’t overlook that outfit formula!

I’m a pilot’s daughter and have traveled plenty and all-black is easy and looks expensive (which is great if you’re hoping to get upgraded to First Class!).

Another reason I love wearing all-black for travel days is you won’t have to stress about potentially staining your outfit, which can be really easy to do in tight spaces especially if you’re traveling with kids.

I hope you found this list of cute airport outfits for summer travel helpful!

Spread the love!
