Whether you’re plotting an escape to a secluded island or ready to take a long-awaited European holiday, airport outfits are just as important as the looks packed away inside your luggage, according to one Manchester retailer.
PrettyLittleThing ( PLT ), who’s headquarters are based in Manchester, are reporting that searches for ‘airport outfits’ have increased by a staggering 354% over the past few weeks as people are particularly interested in finding that comfy fit to take the edge off the airport bye
It follows the travel chaos at airports up and down the country, in particular at Manchester Airport, with long wait times, queues and delays currently affecting travellers. What you’re wearing may not be the first thing on your mind if you’re encountering issues before you jet off but there’s no reason why your outfit shouldn’t be thought through, especially if it’s going to bring some comfort to a particular stressful day, says the retailer.
So what are the biggest airport outfit trends of this year and where can you shop them on a budget? PrettyLittleThing has just released an airport outfit collection that will keep shoppers on trend this holiday season without sacrificing comfort in the process.
Thanks to the athleisure trend, which rakes in an incredible 74,000 monthly searches on Google, sporty separates, joggers, co-ords and trainers have never been cooler and their practicality makes them the ultimate traveler fit for 2022.
From zip up hoodies and cardigans to speed up security, to comfy co-ords and cute jumpsuits, PrettyLittleThing say their collection and its athleisure vibe has got you covered for all airport areas. Not forgetting all-important accessories like carry-on bags, chunky trainers and baseball caps.
