Airport Outfit Ideas for Hijabi Travelers

What is the best outfit for airplane travel?

Imagine this, you stand in front of your wardrobe unsure of what to wear. The closets have already been emptied of the outfits decided to bring on vacation. Yet, you have not decided on which outfit will you wear on the plane ride.

Here is a tip! Simply select the most basic and comfy fashion items you possess. Let me explain more about how we can make basic and comfy stylish:

  1. First of all, your flight may take hours and you want to keep your outfits as comfortable as you can. Keeping it stylish? Well, we know how. It is by avoiding tight jeans and pants. Choose flowing pants, soft material pants such as linen and cotton, or sweatpants and joggers instead.
  2. Secondly, choose a comfortable shirt to wear at the airport and on plane rides. You can then wear an outer such as a knitted cardigan, kimono outer, long coat, casual blazer, oversized jean jacket, or flannel.
  3. Thirdly, keep your feet happy with your trendiest pair of sneakers that can be used for a variety of activities. Who knows you might even bring home another pair? This way, you can make room in your suitcase for another pair of more formal shoes or a pair of shoes that suits your vacation activities at the destination.
  4. Finally, wear either a neutral-colored hijab or a hijab with a color that is lighter than the color of your outfit.


Traveling Outfit Ideas for Hijabi Travelers

When traveling, our outfits must be fitted with the seasons of each location we visit, in addition to the mood. We would not want to go somewhere and end up in the wrong outfit. Here are four of our fashion suggestions tailored to the season:

Stylish Summer hijab outfit

Summer is the most challenging season for hijabis because we must choose the right fabric to wear. Furthermore, if we wear the wrong hijab material, the intense sun may cause our scalps to sweat even more, which is uncomfortable.

3 least recommended hijab and outfit materials for summer:

  • Nylon
  • Acrylic
  • Polyester

4 most recommended hijab and outfit materials for summer:

  • Cotton
  • Linen
  • Rayon
  • Jersey

Other than the fabrics, one must choose good colors to suit the summer vibe. Sunny and vibrant, are the two things that are commonly associated with summer. The best colors to wear in the summer are white, red, and yellow. Those are the three colors known to absorb heat.


Comfortable Winter hijab outfit

Everyone wanted to get comfortable and warm inside the layering clothes in winter. However, layering clothes in the cold may appear simple, but it is a technique that must be understood to avoid appearing bulky.

Here are some tips to not appear bulky in a cold winter:

  • Use thin layers
  • Select clothing with heat-retaining fabrics
  • Merino wool and denim are the safest choices for a thinner look
  • Long coats made of wool will give you a sleek and edgy look

In addition, because black is so adept at absorbing heat, winter is the ideal season for those of us who love dark hues. Because of the contrast, we advise wearing black and matching it with jewel-toned hues like sapphire blue and ruby red.


Sleek Fall hijab outfit

What should you wear in the fall while the leaves are falling? I will tell you what, you should dress in anything from the 1970s or 1980s! From long pieces or oversized vintage sweaters, you name it.

Now, to make it easier to mix and match, here we give examples of clothes that you must bring when traveling to places during the fall (autumn) season:

  • Faux leather moto jackets with jeans and boots
  • Wide leg and straight jeans with oversized vintage sweaters
  • Corduroy jacket and turtle neck top

Other than that, the colors we recommend using in the fall season are dusty orange, black, olive, tawny, and brown. Hence, you can still look cute even though the wind is blowing and the air is getting cold.


Trendy Spring hijab outfit

Flowers start to bloom when winter fades away to spring, and it can be one of your travel motivations. You might wish to visit Japan to observe the cherry blossoms. Has the attire you wore throughout spring been decided upon now that the location and timing of your vacation have been set? Continue scrolling while you unwind.

Here are several outfit ideas for spring:

  • Japanese cotton dress
  • Floral dress
  • Blouse and culotte pants
  • An oversized sweater and pleated skirt

Furthermore, springtime is an exciting time for those of you who love pastel colors. This is a great time to wear pastel colors! Bring your pastel-colored outfits, especially baby pink, and go to see the cherry blossoms and flowers in bloom.

Writer's note: This time is also the best time to wear your most comfortable white sneakers.
