Fashion Souvenirs may come in all shapes and sizes, colours and materials. While clothing items like T-shirts and shirts remain popular, accessories like bags, scarves and badges are perhaps more easily packed in a suitcase. Accessorizing your outfit with a small memento of your travels is also a simple and effective way of demonstrating a national affiliation or aspirations of cosmopolitanism.
