Airport dressing is an art. However, while comfort is preferred for travel and easy options are a must, there's still room for style and Gigi Hadid's leggings find that perfect balance. But the way that the supermodel styled the everyday staple is what's worth noting — as they've been completely transformed into a chic essential. Not to mention, they're a sneaky hack for making your legs look a mile long, making them the controversial staple that every wardrobe needs.

Plus, because the likes of your favorite celebrities like Gigi Hadid (and more recently, Kourtney Kardashian) have been seen wearing them a multitude of ways, you know it's worth investing in a solid pair for yourself.
On Feb. 18, the model was seen arriving to Milan during the peak of fashion month, in one of the most chic airport outfits to date. She layered a gray-green trench coat with exaggerated proportions over a mock-neck sweater, both of which made for an excellent pairing for her split-hem leggings. Finishing the look with two-tone sneakers, the fresh-faced celeb, of course, had her favorite aviator sunglasses, as well as, an oversized Ferragamo Studio Bag, in tow — giving you the perfect outfit accomplices when trying it out for yourself.

And whether you're hoping to recreate the outfit for your next long-haul flight or a day of running errands, the key to successfully pulling off leggings like Hadid, is to pair it with your favorite statement coat and luxe accessories.
