We’re all dreaming of jetting off to sunnier climates at this time of year; soaking up the sun pool-side, city hopping around Europe, tasting wine in the South of France… But our summer adventures are bookended by the most effortless fashion show of them all - the airport runway.
The classic jetting off look requires the perfect balance of comfort and an undeniable edge of effortlessly cool. Who else to take note from other than our favourite 90s supermodels and celebrities, who mastered airport chic. Read on as we have broken down how you too can replicate some of the best airport looks to date with a selection of our WNU staples.
Think sophisticated, timeless airport style that you will live in for many summers to come.
Epitomising the laid-back-but-stylish airport dressing we are so desperate to nail, our classic Girlfriend Weave White is the perfect choice for such a dilemma. Paired with a good pair of jeans or a blazer a-la our muse Halle Berry, you simply cannot go wrong with this forever classic. We’re ready to board.
A Trip to Aspen
We all want to be comfortable when travelling, and the super soft cotton of our Boyfriend shirt in Brushed Maple Red Plaid is the perfect partner to snuggle up in for a mid-flight forty winks. Channel a little bit of Lauren Hutton in this cosy number, and wake up fresh and ready to enjoy whatever adventure awaits - Aspen anyone?
The Malibu Moment
For summer in a shirt, look no further than our Cabana Linen in the colour stone. Inspired by the bright lights and warm evenings of a summer in LA, this west coast fave epitomises cool-girl casual. Simply pair with a classic pair of aviator sunglasses and an at-seat glass of something bubbly and get ready to hit the beach as soon as you’ve passed border control.
Landing at 3, Meeting at 4
If you find yourself at the airport this summer for work and not play, then our Girlfriend Collarless Poplin in Steel Blue is sure to impress at the airport with its classic, tailored fit and minimal collar. Perfect for going straight from the airport to the boardroom (and afterwards to the bar), it really is the perfect staple for any occasion, looking as good with a pair of relaxed jeans as it does with a pair of perfectly fitting tailored trousers for the office, home or away.
Keeping a Low Profile
Steal Cindy Crawford’s effortless silky style with our Boyfriend Silk shirt in Onyx, a shirt perfect for keeping a low profile from the paps*. Monochrome is always a good idea at the airport, and this black silky number is the first piece you need to start your understated-yet-glamorous airport look. Simply pair it with a pair of black jeans and a statement belt for some serious style.

The Cool Girl Classic
We can’t get enough of Christy Turlington’s effortless sophistication, and her airport looks are no different. Paired with a pair of white sneakers and minimal hand luggage (one can dream!), our Boyfriend Weave in Celeste Blue provides an effortless but put together airport look for any occasion. A complete classic before, during or after your holiday, nothing says WNU like this sellout shirt.
