All-Son Red and navy striped windbreakers, $58 each

The Retro Windbreaker

The lightweight windbreaker, a standard of 1980s pop fashion is back, but with a dash of 1960s prep. Gone are the Day-Glo polyesters. This spring's version, like these waxed cotton pullovers from All-Son, are a tad more subtle and lot more stylish. One of Urban Outfitters' in-house labels, All-Son draws its aesthetic from camp clothes and outdoor adventures. And what's more, they make them here in the US—not an easy feat when prices are this reasonable. So wear your new windbreaker with pride. Whether in a bold red or a handsome navy with varsity stripes, it's the kind of jacket you won't want to take off just because you're inside.

Urban Outfitters originated as "The Free People's Store" in 1970 in Philadelphia, PA.

With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
