These Airports Are Destinations In Themselves | Clozette


When travelling, it’s usually the destination we anticipate. We land, claim our baggage, and once we go through immigration, we're out of the gates and on to a cab to our accommodation.  We rush in and out of airports that we fail to notice what’s inside. For one, some airports offer activities you can enjoy. Intrigued? We’ve listed down a few airports around the globe that are just as interesting as the destinations they lead up to. When you get a chance to visit them, remember to extend your trip and set time aside to discover the gems they hold.  

 

Changi Airport, Singapore



You don’t really need to fly far to have a unique airport experience. Dubbed the world’s best airport, Changi Airport in Singapore offers a myriad of activities everyone can enjoy. Shop, dine and be captivated by interesting art installations and blooming gardens you’ll find throughout the airport. With the Jewel terminal opening last month, you’ll soon be able to try fun attractions like a net trampoline and large-scale slides enveloped within nature. If nature’s not your thing, then feel free to watch movies and play video games in their Entertainment Deck.


Incheon International Airport, South Korea



Enjoy your layovers when you visit the largest airport in South Korea. Incheon International Airport is one of the best places to be if you want to quickly experience Korean culture. Aside from mini classical concerts, the airport has a Korean Cultural Street and a museum where you can learn more about their heritage. Not to mention that it also houses a Star Garden with 150 unique species of plants, a golf course, and a skating rink. You won’t even feel time pass when you’re here!

 


Vancouver International Airport, Canada



Missed the Vancouver Aquarium when you toured the city? Don’t worry because you can catch their satellite aqua exhibits at Vancouver International Airport. Enjoy the aquariums that are home to thousands of colourful sea creatures situated around the area. Other than that, you can take a peek into British Columbia’s rich culture and heritage by viewing their art installations scattered throughout the airport.



Munich International Airport, Germany



Immerse yourself in airport behind-the-scenes when you visit Munich International Airport in Germany. Here, you can learn how your luggage finds its way from the plane to you, and so much more in their airport tours. As you wait for your flight, you can also enjoy cycling around the path encircling the airport. If you’re not for an action-packed adventure, then just take time to sip beer that was actually crafted at the on-site Airbrau brewery.

 


Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, Netherlands



If you’re into cultured pursuits, then it’s a must to spend some time at Schiphol Airport when you visit Amsterdam. In Rijksmuseum’s outpost in the airport, you can enjoy a collection of 17th-century paintings of Dutch masters. For bookworms, the airport also has a library where you can chill out and stretch your imagination.  If that still doesn’t do it for you, then perhaps an enjoyable visit of their interactive NEMO Science Museum will do the trick.

These days, 'girl boss style' has become a fashion genre of its own. Distinguished by sleek pieces that are as stylish as they are functional, this type of look has become a mainstream favourite for ladies of today. But we all know that popularity is a double-edged sword and in the case of boss babe fashion, it's becoming harder and harder to put together a fresh look that won't seem like a uniform that everybody else wears. To help you spice up your girl boss look, we scouted some awesome styling ideas from the Clozette Community.


Prints galore


Girl Boss Outfit Inspiration

Mixing prints is a bold but tricky technique to pull off. It will certainly freshen up your girl boss style if you do it right but one wrong move and it's a guaranteed disaster. Take a cue from Clozette Ambassador Cherzinga and pair two similar prints with each other. Make sure that the colour palette is complementary; as a rule of thumb when mixing prints, one piece should be darker than the other to create depth. Another thing to note is to wear one solid piece that can serve as a visual break.

Elizabeth Holmes may have nailed adopting that 'Steve Jobs look' but we've found a much more interesting modification to this style inspired by Star Clozetter Trixie. Instead of pairing a black turtleneck top with the usual grey slacks or skinny jeans, mix it up wearing a cute bandage wrap skirt. It adds an interesting detail without sacrificing elegance. Add some statement earrings and you're all good!


Cute crops

If you're working at a creative company, there's a good chance that you're allowed to sport pieces that are considered to be too 'daring' in a corporate setting. Take this opportunity to experiment with bold styles like wearing a crop top underneath a suit. It's a new take on the usual lady suit look and it's just as fierce. Look to Clozette Ambassador Qi Yun for inspiration on how to pull off this style.

Going for a laidback girl boss look? Try this ensemble by Star Clozetter Leanne. At first, you'd think it's too carefree for an office setting but with a few additions, you can totally rock this at the workplace. Like Leanne, opt for sleek close-toed footwear such as a pair of black boots. You can also add some accessories like statement arm candy and a unique belt for a more distinct look. Lastly, don't forget to choose a structured bag to balance your laidback outfit.



Pile on the pastels

Since it's summer, why not brighten up your wardrobe a bit? It will surely shake things up from usual monochromatic lady boss outfits! Remember to pick bright colours that go well together like pink and yellow or baby blue and lavender so the ensemble will still look elegant no matter what. If you're not sure how to put together a colourful girl boss look, check out Clozette Ambassador Kelly's outfit as a guide.
