The type of jacket you wear on your trip will depend on the season in the destination(s) you’re travelling to. Even in the summer, I’d recommend travelling with at least a light, breathable jacket. You never know when a chilly night will sneak up on you, or worse, a rain storm.

A portable one like this one will take up no room at all in your luggage, but if weather permits, a more stylish option can definitely be worn on the plane (or whichever other method of travel you’ve elected to take).

Going on a hike during your latest travels? Safety and quality gear are both optimal to a fun and successful trek, whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned trekker. When it comes to what you’ll be wearing, ideally you’ll have some form of hiking specific clothing packed with you. This is one area where spending a little extra is worth it, which you’ll know if you’ve done this before.

A good pair of trekking trousers, fitted, but not too tight, is the ideal pant for a hike, since they’re breathable and quick-drying. If you prefer leggings, I would go with a sporty pair, rather than a throwaway pair from Target. Pair either with light layers on top, and you should be good to go.

Hiking in sneakers isn’t recommended, though if you’re trying to save on luggage (or backpack) space, it might be necessary. If you’re not bringing a pair of hiking boots along, make sure you pack the adequate socks necessary to hike in sneakers comfortably. Here’s a great post advocating dropping hiking boots altogether for sneakers that’s worth a read.

Speaking of sneakers, they’re my travel shoe of choice. They’re supportive, comfortable, and best of all, there’s been a resurgence in sneakers in the fashion world, so they’re cute as heck now! Quite a few major brands, like Nike and Adidas, offer cute patterns, partnerships with major fashion designers, and customizable sneaks.

A couple of my favorites are the glow in the dark Minimus by New Balance and these Nikes, called the Zoom Wildhorse.
