Airports are an accidental runway. They're an international playground, filled with opportunities to make it to your gate as stylishly as possible. Born from the rise of celebrity influence and paparazzi photos, airport fashion is something to pay close attention to — a fit spotted at LAX can be as influential as one worn to Paris Fashion Week.

When zipping through the airport, you want to be cozy, but you also don't want to look like a slob. The way to perfect this look is by balancing out the comfortable pieces with strong design elements, ensuring that your comfortable attire is carefully chosen.

You want well-made staples that will become your go-to airport staples; looking effortless at all times is the goal. For example, if you want to wear slides, which slide is key. So are the socks. With track pants, you want to go for a new silhouette. YEEZY, Random Identities, Helly Hansen, and Crocs are a few brands that have mastered the art of high-low.

Below, we've put together a list of items that will make all your airport looks victorious.
