One Design, 8 Ways to wear. Our innovative Chrysalis Cardi in our most popular size - Medium/Regular.

The Chrysalis Cardi is a wardrobe staple. The versatile Cardi can be styled 8+ ways. From a cozy cocoon cardi, to a chic grecian tunic, a glamorous one-shoulder gown, to a poncho and a classic infinity scarf.

The secret is the hand-sewn snaps hidden along the hemline that hold the looks together. Unlike traditional multi-way garments, our designs do not require pinning, tying, or elastics to hold the looks together. Effortlessly transform.

        • Made from 95% Lenzing Modal® | 5% Spandex.
          1. Made from our buttery-soft Lenzing Modal® blend fabric. Modal is a naturally derived fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal yarn is created through an environmentally-conscious process in which 95% of production materials are recovered. Modal has 10 times the yield of cotton, and uses significantly less water. The fabric is OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means they are free of harmful chemicals. Learn about our fabrics.
          2. The Chrysalis Cardi comes with a belt, made from the same fabric, and full-colour lookbook with diagrams. Snaps are made from high-quality, rust-resistant metal. They're lead-free, nickel-free and and recyclable.
        • We recommend that you hand wash the Chrysalis Cardi. Hang to dry.

          You may put the Chrysalis Cardi (with snaps undone) in a mesh garment bag in the washing machine on the gentle cycle. Do not put in the dryer. 
        • Fit Advice:Perfect for women of any height from sizes (S-XL).  The design will also work on women smaller than this size but who just prefer a longer silhouette when styled as the dress looks. View the size chart.

Great top - have worn it as a scarf, cape, and dress! A great staple piece with so much versatility! The fabric is thick and warm, no see through! Would have liked to see a cleaner finished edge for the price, but as the fabric doesn't run it's not a big deal. Would love to see a thinner, elastic waist band as well as the the longer belt - the elastic belt would allow it to be made into a maxi dress, or give a cleaner belted dress look.

Great material, but snaps aren't practical.

I have had this dress for almost 2 years now. I love the concept, and the material has held up great! The only thing I am not a fan of is the snaps. Not only are they a bit clunky, but I often have to sew them back on (after a few wears). I have the black version and I don't find it very versatile unless you work in an office or like wearing mostly dark colours. Because of the airy material (which is lovely), it's more of a summer garment, but the black just doesn't really work for an "office to the patio" look; it's almost too dressy. I wish you would make it in more fun/summery colours or with patterns because I would get much more wear out of it!

Love it so far!

Have to figure out more of the configurations but the two I have tried are great. The material is SO soft! My podcast review is still to come, just need to wear it some more before I can do that.

I'm still trying to figure out how to wear it. I've worn it as a dress but hard to figure out the other ways...

Hey Marta! Thank you for your review. You can always follow our how-to-wear videos on our website for a little more help with the styles! They can be found here - https://www.encircled.ca/pages/how-to-wear

So amazingly soft!

Even though I'm petite, and I already own the petite chrysalis cardi, I wanted the regular/medium for certain styles. Although the petite fits me well for most of the dress styles, the cardigan, and the wrap; it is a bit snug for the x-halter and wrap dress (I think because I have a larger bust). I ordered the regular so I could wear those styles more comfortably (and to have some color options). I was happy to find that the regular/medium made for a more elegant looking dress. The extra length gives the dress styles a more sophisticated look that I was really happy with. Love it!
