This Is What Airport Style Looked Like the Decade You Were Born
There’s no denying that airport style is a thing. In fact, we’ve been documenting what celebs wear at the airport on the regular since 2006. The reason for the fascination? Well, for starters, travel outfits have an accessible twist to them. Unlike many celeb looks, airport ensembles are simply easier to test out IRL thanks to their inherent practicality. But what’s interesting is that celebrity airport fashion truly has evolved significantly throughout the decades.
Back in the '40s and '50s, traveling was much more luxurious nature. As a result, people dressed in their finest when they headed to the airport. When you look at stars like Marilyn Monroe, you'd see glamorous dresses, fur coats, and fine jewelry. These days, however, celebrities tend to dress on the other end of the spectrum—think jeans, cozy outerwear, and comfortable shoes.
To dig a little deeper into the evolution of celebrity travel style over the years, we created a timeline of what airport fashion looked like at various points through each decade since the early '50s. (Please note that many of the early popular celeb airport snaps occurred during this time period or we would've gone back even further).
With that, go on to see what celebrities wore the decade (or specific year) you were born. And make sure to keep scrolling because we also rounded up the best clothing and accessories for travel as well—inspired by all of these jet-setting A-listers.
