What makes for a perfect airport outfit? It is one that is a perfect amalgamation of style, comfort and practicality.

Vedang Patel, Co-founder and Director at The Souled Store, and Sanjeev Mukhija, Founder at Breakbounce Streetwear, share some pointers that will help you make a fashion statement while you are travelling:

* Multi-pocketed outfits: To ensure that all the essential items like passport, boarding pass, keys, phone and wallet are carried along, multi-pocketed clothes offer a smart alternative. To keep the necessary stuff handy, you can sport a cargo pant or a jacket with multiple pockets to add to your coolness quotient on the go.

* Breathable fabrics: Especially for the long haul flights, breathable fabric like cotton helps maintain the cleanliness and comfort. These materials are lightweight and allow air to circulate keeping the body sweat-free.

* Cool contemporary tops: To break the airport fashion code, switch to top wear that provides comparative ease and a personal touch. A smart shirt with rolled up sleeves over a plain t-shirt and jeans at bottom will give a fashionable edge to your outfit.

Want to draw attention to your airport outfit despite keeping it casual? Pair your outfit with a statement-making cap and stand out amongst the crowd.VOA

* An added layers: The temperature during takeoff and landing is usually higher while it is significantly lower mid-air. Layering yourself up can help in adapting to the dynamic temperature by providing an option to remove or add a layer accordingly. It also takes care of the climate change at the source and destination.

* Graphic T-shirts: A breathable T-shirt is exponentially comfortable than the other options you may consider, and going for a graphic T-shirt will up the cool-factor of your look instantly.

* Comfortable socks: Long flights can quickly turn into a nightmare if you are someone who has a low tolerance for cold. Not everyone is immune to the low cabin pressure, so it is better to keep yourself amped up with necessary layers. The best way to deal with ice block for feet is to wear socks. They are a must have to keep your feet warm on a long flight. Don a pair of comfy yet statement-making socks to let your feet do all the talking.

* Caps: Want to draw attention to your airport outfit despite keeping it casual? Pair your outfit with a statement-making cap and stand out amongst the crowd. Caps are a cool style trick to amp up your outfit and to help disguise your slept-on hair.

Aarti Chhabra and Akanksha Chhabra, owner of Pastels and Pop, lists down some ways to make your jutti look work with your indian or western wear.

* The ethnic look of juttis makes them a natural choice to be paired with an elegant sari along with a classy piece of temple jewellery for that timeless appearance.

* A jutti with a chic print can make monochrome jumpsuits look even edgier.

* You can spice up your everyday plain kurta with a bright pair, while the same pair can accompany your favourite pair of jeans or shorts with a tee.

* Many women have even started teaming up juttis with their work wear, for the flair it brings while feeling snug on the feet. A single pair of juttis, when accessorized smartly, can be the perfect complement to a whole range of outfits, including ethnic and western.

For western looks.

* Start with the basics. Team up your jeans and white t-shirt with the jutti. You could also throw on a kalamkari scarf to complete the look.

* Since it’s monsoon time, one style you can never miss out on is classic pencil pants with a top and long overcoat. Throw in a pair of jutti to complete the look.

For Indo western looks:

* If you play by the rules, short kurtis with denims can be easily paired with a pair of juttis. Find the perfect pair of earrings to match your look and you are good to go.

* Short skirts in traditional fabrics like ikats and kalamkaris can be pretty much paired with any t-shirts or tops with statement pieces. A pair of juttis would be perfect for overall look.
