Did someone say vacation? Honestly, there’s nothing better than utilizing the natural light from an airplane window as an excuse to add an indulgent selfie to your IG or Snap story. (Other than reaching your destination, of course.) It’s tough to look polished while staying comfy and organized on the go, especially if you tend to overpack. Avoid stress and jet in style with our guide for how to simplify your airport game.

International travel guidelines require that carry-on suitcases be slightly smaller than those allowed on domestic flights. Invest in a suitcase that fits these requirements to avoid surprise baggage fees abroad. The decreased dimensions of international luggage is a helpful preventative measure for overpacking. Delsey makes a fabulous international carry-on that’s durable and stylish (mine has been from Morocco to Stockholm and still looks amazing).

Stash a clear bag of travel-sized toiletries in your bathroom so you don’t have to worry about forgetting any essentials. This also saves time when packing (transferring products into travel-friendly containers is annoying and time consuming). Plus, it’s easier to freshen up after a long flight if everything you need is in one bag. Some of our favorite petite products are the First Aid Beauty travel kit, Byredo travel perfumes, and Herbivore Botanicals Rose Hibiscus face mist.

You’re in luck — velcro sneakers are in vogue. Even if this trend is a little too juvenile for your taste, traveling in sneakers is a great way to stay comfortable and prepared for a dash to your gate if you’re running late. Plus, wearing shoes with socks to security is always a good idea — you probably don’t want to walk in bare feet on the airport floor. Plus, velcro-fastened sneakers are way easier to get on and off than shoes with laces or buckles, which will make your trip through security even speedier.

Instead of rummaging through your bag or wallet for your ID at check-in and security, use a card case to keep it separate and secure for maximum efficiency. If you’re traveling internationally, a passport case comes in handy for stashing boarding passes and baggage tickets. Make sure the case is easily removable, though, since you need to remove it at most international borders in order for an officer to inspect it.

No matter what the weather is like, airports and airplanes are always chilly. Wear a big scarf that can double as a blanket or impromptu pillow on the pane if you’re in for a long trip.

There’s no telling when you’ll find an outlet to charge your phone with on the go, especially if you’re traveling to a country where international adapters are necessary. Invest in a portable charger that can charge your phone multiple times, so you don’t have to worry about it dying during a long day of travel.

Noise cancelling or high quality headphones are a must for air travel, especially if you end up on a flight with an infant or two. Plus, over-ear headphones are more comfortable for extended use. We love Frends for stylish options that don’t skip on sound quality.

Finally, make sure to check in online to save time before your flight. Checking your bag curbside is a great way to avoid lines inside and reduce the amount of luggage you have to carry with you before security. Online check in often provides travelers with the option of receiving information like their gate number via text to make their trip smoother.
