The Lightest Layer

The windbreaker, that standard of 1980s pop fashion, is back these days but with a more modern, technical twist. Gone are the day-glo neon colors and baggy fits. Today's best versions are colorful, yes, but are a tad more subtle and lot more stylish. After all, a breathable nylon jacket with a hood comes in handy when unpredictable summer weather turns. Not to mention they're easily packable for your travels. From Aether's paper-thin water resistant style to M.Nii's vintage-inspired option, there are plenty to choose from. And don't forget to make it your own by cinching the drawstring, pushing up the sleeves or tying it around your waist.
