With vacations now high on the agenda for those across the Nordics, Vogue Scandinavia's curates the looks you need to to do airport departures and arrivals in style

Whilst some jetsetters see the airport terminal runways and fashion weeks runways as interchangeable, mastering airport ensembles – especially for long-haul journeys – is a fine balance. The ideal look delivers lounge-ready ease with a first-class feeling.

From cushy trainers by Chimi for power walking to a final boarding call, to fluid pleats from Hope for unrestricted comfort, treat our curation below much like your own travel checklist. We've considered the finer details, too: a sleek engraved water bottle will take care of much-needed hydration, while puffy post-flight eyes can be shielded with understated tinted sunglasses.
