Rule No. 1 – Comfort Is Key!

Celebrities are just like us – they like their comfort when they’re on the go. But with international appearances, back to back shoot schedules and long flights and longer layovers, they may probably know a thing or two more about travelling than we do. With a job description that demands looking their best, because paps are everywhere, you will rarely (never) find a celebrity in dishevelled manner, even after tiring, long flight. So in the spirit of looking good and put-together at all times, we decided to dissect celebrity makeup rules to look out for style rules all celebrities follow for their long travels. Read on.

Go Desi

Every once in a while you’re tired of wearing your usual western basics, try going the Indian wear route. Most Indian ensembles are pretty darn comfortable. And they are quite elegant to look at! We don’t see a reason why you shouldn’t be wearing a kurta over a jumpsuit. Look how radiant Deepika looks for her travels!


03/8A trusty handbag

A trusty handbag

A trusty, structured handbag could very well be next in after the little black dress. However, you can carry it almost every single day. If you’re worried about coming up a stylish look for your travels, just ensure you are carrying a solid, well crafted handbag. Even a drab outfit would look ten times better with it.

Dress like a man

By this, we mean go shop in the men’s section. Their sizes usually run bigger, at least for women – however, have a sharp silhouette nonetheless, making them a travel staple. Sonam Kapoor’s stylis(h)t sister, Rhea Kapoor expertly demonstrates this.


05/8Loose silhouette

Loose silhouette

While a pair of skinny jeans looks brilliant, it is squishing up your entire body in a smaller jean to give you that lifted appearance. Imagine doing that your body for over 12 hours. Yup, uncomfortable! Instead of picking up a comfy pair of track pants, pick a loose pair of trousers like Priyanka Chopra. Even Nick Jonas seems to agree. The duo looks, crisp, neat and comfortable.


06/8Light layers

Light layers

Even though you may be travelling from one tropical destination to another, carry on a light cardigan or jacket along. Most travel modes (cars, buses, trains and flights) have ample air conditioning, that can get a little too chilly, making the light jackets a welcome addition. On times when it gets hotter than you desire, just peel off a layer. Sonam Kapoor lives and breathes this rule!


07/8Flat footwear

Flat footwear

Even the most comfortable long travels will involve some amount of walking around. And god help you, if you’re travelling with heavy luggage. You don’t want your cute heels slowing you down. Sneakers will work great. But if you can’t be bothered with removing shoes during every security check, wear flat, slip shoes instead.


08/8Sling bags

Sling bags

Just because the airplane allows you to carry a sizable hand luggage option, doesn’t mean you should. A small, purse that carries your basic essentials and toiletries would be ideal. Much like Kangana, pick sling bag, that allows you all that storage while keeping your hands free.
