Cashmere Pashmina Scarf

Contrary to what most fashionistas believe, the pashmina craze did not begin in the 1990s. Pashminas have been a style staple for much longer than that; Napoleon gave one to his wife, Empress Josephine, over 200 years ago! Elegant, soft and incredibly lightweight, they are a timeless wardrobe piece no mom should be without. They are also great to take on a plane (celeb travel veterans like Jennifer Aniston are rarely seen boarding without one). They serve as a cozy blanket during the trip and can be worn with virtually anything once you arrive. Cashmere Pashmina, also known as the "diamond fabric," comes from the underbelly of the Capra Hircus goat, found in the remote regions of the Himalayas. It is the finest and warmest wool out there — with a price tag to match. If you cannot afford 100% cashmere opt for a silk and cashmere blend.

Price: Available on amazon at a range of prices
