Except in the hottest of destinations, a light summer jacket will make a useful travel item as it comes handy during cool evenings or summer showers and can even protect you from insects.

Fashion traits: Jackets should double up as stylish accessories rather than something plain that just covers up. Choose models that accentuate the dressing style and outdoor fashion.
