Forget cardigans. A summer-weight scarf is one of the more elegant ways to fight off the cold in chilly movie theaters, offices, and anywhere AC is blasting. And Terracotta New York has made-in-Italy silk scarves that are a luxurious splurge. Even though "New York" is in the name, one of the founders has logged time in Washington. Alina Cheung and Yidi Xu, two investment bankers turned luxury fashion entrepreneurs, joined forces to start Terracotta New York, and Yidi holds a dual-degree in Finance and International Business from Georgetown University. Of all the whimsical prints to choose from, we were partial to bicycles, because they look so darn good with stripes.
The scarves were such a hit at Potomac boutique Emily Grace that they've sold out, but you can shop online at Terracotta New York's website.
