Cities are wonderful places to visit in the winter. The sights and sounds are all so festive. The park has turned its pond into an ice-skating rink. Every inch of downtown is covered in lights. Jazz musicians can be found on seemingly every street corner. The scent of chocolate and spice fills the air around your favorite city café. Could there be anything more magical? This shawl celebrates all that we love about December in the city. It features a bold color and vertical stripes of lace that resemble skyscrapers. Knit in ultra-luxurious Cashmere Lusso, this is the perfect accessory to keep you warm on a night out on the town.
