These cool, abstract dress patterns are actually city maps
If you’re too cool for I Heart NY apparel, but are still brimming with city pride, may we suggested this scarf? It might look like a mess of orange and purple, but it’s actually a map of New York City:

The colors are location-centric, too, FastCoExist writes:

It brings new meaning to wearing your metropolitan pride on your sleeve.
