Previously, Peachy tastemaker Whitley Hamlin of The Queen City Style shared some fantastic contemporary airport looks with us and now she’s back with great vintage airport looks from three style icons. Natalie Wood, Audrey Hepburn and Bianca Jagger remind us that even while travelling, we can continue to put our best foot forward.
We also want to congratulate Whitley for winning Charlotte Magazine’s Best of the Best Award for best stylist and personal shopper!

My ever style-setting grandmother, Martha Whitley, was and is my forever style icon. From a very early age, she instilled the importance of putting your best forward forward at all times. Putting the time into your personal appearance sends a message not only reflective of the confidence you have in yourself but also the respect you have for others. I saw Nana display this penchant for confident style later in life when the mailman was perhaps the only person she would see that day and earlier in her life when she would travel. She made it seem this was perhaps THE most imperative time to make a best impression with your appearance. The airport may be the first, last and only time you saw a fellow passenger or new friend, but your finest impression would be lasting.
