Color Coordination Made Simple!

Summer is always a busy time of the year for the team here at Terracotta. Between sketching away a brand-new collection, gearing up for tradeshows, keeping up with meetings & photoshoots and FINALLY sneaking away for that long over-due vacation, leaving enough time in the morning to perfectly color-coordinate an outfit can quickly drop to the bottom of our to-do list.   When we came across the following quote, we couldn't help but having a chuckle! We have all been there - each one of us a serious offender of the "All Black Every Day" look once upon a time, and we LOVED every minute of it!   Since launching Terracotta, we've been gradually making a conscious effort to break...

Terracotta Tutorials - The Scarf Belt Featuring "Sable" Starfish Scarf in Creamsicle

"One swimwear truism not to be ignored: The cover-up is just as important as the suit. Take the tunic — it’s incredibly chic in an undone, bohemian sort of way. Plus, it looks equally good off the beach as on."  We couldn't agree more, Tory Burch. Whether you’re basking in sunshine on the white sands of Capri, lounging on the black rocky beach of Nice, tiptoeing in the cool water off the coast of Cape Town, or simply relaxing by the pool at your summer go-to spot, an airy cover-up is always a must-have!  When you’re not strutting your hard-earned bikini body on the beach or by the pool, a perfect cover-up leaves just the right amount to the imagination.  But...
