5 “Airport” Fashion Mistakes To Avoid

Vacation season is here. While I personally prefer comfort over fashion while planning my airport outfit (but that’s just me) here are my two-bits on what NOT to wear at the airport. Having just returned from a Bali vacation  (it was wonderful, thank you!) I knew I just had to put out a post on the airport/ flight discomforts many (most) of us endure in the name of fashion.

Read below to see what to avoid wearing at airports and on flights.

Uncomfortable Footwear:


I cannot stress the importance of this point enough. I personally choose my footwear first and decide my outfit around it. Ballerinas or slip-on or fashionable keds. Avoid flip-flops too because of their bad grip. Because airports are huge areas and one has to walk for miles around, whether its to grab that coffee or to rush to that boarding gate. So many women totter around airports uncomfortably, barely keeping up on their feet in high-heeled shoes. Beats me why one would do that! Unless of course you’re Victoria Beckham, because then you can 😉



You will be spending a lot of time at the airport and on the flight  before you get to take this thing off. Not to mention the cramped flight toilets which makes jumpsuit a bad choice for flights. My guess is you would not want to be  fumbling with all those buckles and zippers. Pulling a jumpsuit on and off is a task normally on a full bladder, it is many X tougher to do so at an airport or on a flight. Even though i love this wretched trend and i refuse to give up on jumpsuits, I can recall many, many episodes where there’s been a dash between the bladder and the zipper. And Iam not even talking about crowded airport loos.

Minimal, summer outfits:


Yes, I know you can’t wait to reach your each destination (don’t we all?), but don’t forget the sub-zero tempratures you will have to endure at the airport and on your flight. If you must don your favourite summer outfit to the airport, don’t forget to carry a warm stole and socks for the flight. Remember to “layer up”.


“That” outfit you’ve been dying to show-off:


Save it for the vacation and not for the airport. Tempting as it might be to post fab airport selfies and pics in your designer outfit and get 500 likes for it, wisdom is to pack it and keep it for the actual holiday. The airport/ aeroplane is just the right place to spoil your expensive dress. Not to mention the discomfort you might be in.


Heavy Perfume/ Heavy Jewellery:


Yes, we don’t want to be sitting next to that person who is a walking advertisement for a perfume ad. Be mindful and by that I mean please do not smell like yesterdays underwear either (in that case, i’ll take the walking advertisement please). Apply little  because you can always reload on the perfume in the flight bathroom. Same with heavy metal jewellery- less is more. We do not want the fellow passengers to be listening to our bangles clanking every minute!






Priyanka dazzles at the MET Gala, Deepika fails to impress

This year the Met Gala theme was Comme des Garcons and a celebration of the visionary designer Res Kawakubo. The evening saw the coming together of some of the biggest names in films, fashion and music, with each guest interpreting the theme in their own way, which was nominated by Anna Wintour.

Some guests took the theme literally, and opted for outfits which were a reminder of Kawakubo’s wearable pieces of art. Rihanna & Rita Orra being a few. But our desi girl Priyanka Chopra set the red carpet on fire with her long skin-colour trench-dress. Keeping in mimd the theme which was the ‘Art of the In-Between’ – a fashion style that merges two or more fashion styles. Check out her costume here


While Priyanka was lauded by the fashion fraternity, with even Vogue tweeting about her dress, Deepika failed to flutter. For the occasion, she chose a look that was nowhere close to the theme, opting for an ethereal—and nearly backless—dress by all-American designer Tommy Hilfiger and starry Fred Leighton jewels worth buying an island with.
To get her photo ready, she got her long, dark lengths back into a center-parted, low-slung chignon topped by a constellation of glittering diamond ornaments. I love how she looked but it wasn’t Met -worthy. Definately Oscar red carpet worthy, but thats for another day.



Fashion faux-pas that petite girls should avoid

Good things come in small (short) packages. But if you feel your clothes are not looking the way they should, you can be making the following mistakes. Read on to know what to avoid if you are petite.


Tunic Tops: Well, let me just say that tunic tops were not designed for petite frames. Choose crop tops instead to give the illusion of height.


Oversize Bags: A huge bag will add bulk to your frame and it might look like its going to swallow you whole. Opt for small/mid size bags.


Round-toe heels: I think this rule applies universally to all of us. Choose pointy toes heels to give an illusion of endless legs. Round toe heels just kill the entire look…see what i mean


Horizontal Stripes: This is a common mistake we all tend to make. Horizontal stripes are a height-cutter. Flip the stripes to vertical to add an illusion of a couple of inches.



Midi Skirts and Ankle Length Skirts : This hemline does not flatter short frames. Choose knee-length or go for mini skirts instead. And if you must wear them, then stay clear of BOLD prints. Go for solid colours and no prints please.

Kim K takes it a bit too far

Kim Kardashian has been known to take fashion risks. But this latest look on a night out in LA left me a little perplexed. Here’s why:


Am i the only one who thinks that a satin bra with lace underwear is NOT cool? Its like she didn’t have the time to throw on the main outfit so she tried to make underwear look like an outfit. Or maybe she wanted to show off the effects of the “flu-diet”, which got a lot of people a whole lot upset. She took the post down later after coming under fire.

Next time dahlin, try to look a little put-together. Its not too difficult. Believe me.
