Whats your Airport Style?

Semi-Formal
L to R: Lara Dutta, Sophie Choudry, Sonakshi Sinha, Isha Sharvani

Causal and comfy
L to R: Hansika Motwani, Raima Sen, Kareena Kapoor, Suzanne Khan

Laid-back
L to R: Katrina Kaif, Amrita Arora, Kangana Ranaut

me? I am somewhere in between comfy/causal and laid-back:-) As a rule for long flights, I carry a bucket hat and a scarf so if I am really messy, I can cover up...

everybody is lining up for IIFA......comfy casuals are the best.....i mean who want to sit more than an 2-3 hours in those tights.....it may be stylish....but kills you on long flight

No no no no no. I'm old school.

I do dress comfortably so you would not catch me travelling long haul in jeans ever but I really don't like jeans as travel wear particularly if they're dressed down.
I believe that one should not only respect the country you are about to visit by making the effort to look good but also, you are a representative of your own country.
I'm not talking Victoria Beckham dressed to the nines but there is a healthy good-looking balance.
Plus there is dress code for lounges and the pointy-end but coach shouldn't have to suffer. If I owned an airline, I'd keep my tickets cheap and dress standards high!!!!

That's why I loathe the way Aussies travel!! Not all though, a certain demographic (GOD. That makes me sound like such a snob!!!) and I guess your 'version' would be the cliched American tourist...BUT... Suzanne Khan is wearing what we call the Bogan uniform!!! That's not a compliment!! I'm sorry, she may look comfortable but to my Indo-Aussie eye she looks trailer trash!!!!
....Plus of couse I have my bias towards Suzanne so she could be wearing vintage Halston and I'll still think she looks blah.

[poor Suzanne. Mum and dad beat up Zeenat and I dislike them for life. harsh much?]

I wear loose drape-waisted palazzo style pants in a jersey material so they don't wrinkle and layers on top.

Comfy and casual is what I like...a pair of jeans and a comfortable top..that is what I usually wear when I travel.

I love wearing comfy clothes with a pair of very comfy shoes. I cannot wear heels at all haha:

I love katrina's outfit there!

Tanvi said...

OMG! I wanna go write everything Dusk wrote [Except the Suzanne part, of course! Hahah] I wear jersey material harem pants a jacket or full-sleeves are a must!!! ... I only wear jeans on short flights and if I have to be somewhere straight from the airport, but are talking about long flights right? :) ... I like what Katrina is wearing though ... but then I am partial to her coz I love her ;)

Abt my blue puma shoes ... at home I wldn't pair that dress with those shoes either but while traveling comfort comes first for me ... Plus I didn't wanna wear open toes coz I had done pedicure and didn't wanna have dirty feet again ;) So that's my explanation for that ...

Will let Mom know what you said about her !!!

Also I like wavy hair too ... but I always prefer soft shiny locks coz I have a habit of running my fingers through them all the time ... It's hard to do tht in wavy and curly hair I assume ;)

Tanvi said...

Phew! That was long! Now I am thinking I shld have e-mailed instead :P

Tanvi said...

Also! Excuse my typos. I shld definitely read before I click 'post' ...

* I was gonna write ....
** We are talking ...

I want to stay comfortable and especially warm on long flights but I definitely dont want to look as if I have juts been out of bed..So jeans,pants, a big spacious handbag and scarf works for me and flats are a must too...I like what Lara is wearing, I think i like her most of the times..have kinda crush on her :))

maki said...

i wear slleveless top, leggings plus i bring a jacket in handy just in case :)

Taj Acosta said...

It really depends where I'm going and who's on the other end if you know what I mean! I like to look chic but be comfy and warm. hugs doll!!

@Dusk: u do have a bee in ur bonnet where Suzanne is concerned:-) u are right though, there is no excuse to dress dowdily esp when u are traveling...comfortable but chic seems to be ur motto. thanks for sharing!!

@Tanvi: Yup, a jersey pant sounds perfect for long hauls..As u and Dusk mentioned, they wont wrinkle and layers on top keep u warm (its always freezing in the plane!!)

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

I think I'm closest to Katrina and Kareena (rhyme>!) styles!! Jeans are good for me for travel because they can handle so much wear...but they shoudln't be too tight or too loose. Since I prefer a jeans, I usually add the element of style with a better top...something that's not heavy on me and yet makes me comfortable enough to sit in the cold for hours together, if I'm not carryinga jacket, that is!! :)
