The Evolve Top

Size Guide

 One Design, 8 Ways to wear.

The Evolve Top. Versatile travel top for women.

Fully reversible so you can wear the drape in the front or back. Sleeves change length. The secret is the hidden snaps underneath the shoulder, and hidden in the sleeve. These snaps help you easily go from dolman sleeve to cap sleeve to sleeveless.

This innovative Travel Top helps you do more with less and travel lighter. This travel clothing doesn't stay in your suitcase. You can wear it out and about in the city, to work, to brunch or to yoga.

        • Modal and Ultra-Luxe modal are made with a blend of 95% Modal | 5% Spandex.
          1. Luxuriously soft, eco-conscious modal is derived from a renewable source (Beechwood tree cellulose) and processed without chemicals through a closed loop process which creates beautiful fabric without harming the environment.
          2. Ultra-Luxe Modal uses a finer, silkier yarn which creates a beautiful drape, and a luminous finish, which reflects light and creates a dressier vibe.
          3. Featherlight MicroModal uses a fine, ultra-soft yarn that creates a lightweight, airy feel.
        • Hand wash. Hang to dry is recommended. 

          May be placed in a garment bag in the washer dryer. Gentle cycle. Do not put in the dryer. More fabric care info here.
        • Fit Advice: The fit of The Evolve top is drapey but tapers towards the hip. It tends to fit large. We recommend for you to size down from your normal size if you are unsure. The fabric on The Evolve top has a natural stretch that will stretch to fit within ~1-2" of the measurements shown. See size chart here.

    Imagine the possibilities with your Evolve Top....

                    • For work, worn under a blazer, dressed up with a statement necklace.
                    • For casual wear, paired with a pair of jeans, and wrap sweater (A Chrysalis Cardi, perhaps?)
                    • For a night out, put the drape in the back of the top, and pair with heels, and super sleek trousers.
                    • For a weekend relaxing, worn with leggings and a denim jacket.

    Order many sizes lower if small framed. Great top!

    This is a great top. Rolled up it would fit in a tea cup. Great for travel. Very flowy and soft. Flattering fit for pear shaped. Order WAY smaller especially if you have small shoulders or back. I am 5'2 with a shoulder and bust measurement of 41 inches. 34 ribcage and 50 hip. According to chart I should fit an XL. However it was way too big. I ordered all the sizes and the SM fit best. Enough material to flow around bust, taper at waist and end 2 inches below top of hip bone. I found bigger sizes showed bra straps with scoop neck and had way too much material for smaller frame.

    Versatile and cute!

    This top is exactly what I wanted - versatile, cute and replaced 2-3 blouses that I got rid of. I only wish it was a little longer, but that's a minor issue. Love!

    Fit Advice: The Regular Chrysalis Cardi is a one size fits most garment ranging from sizes XS-XXL or 2-14. It can be easily belted in multiple ways, however the Regular is not recommended for petite or shorter woman due to the volume of fabric - See Petite Cardi. The Regular is also not recommended for curvier/taller women due to fabric pulling around the bust or bottom - See Maxi Cardi.

    We recommend watching the how-to wear videos to see how much fabric drape and length you would like in your finished garment. If you are in between sizes, it is best to size up and the garment can always be tailored shorter to better suit your look - you cannot add more fabric, unfortunately!

    The Petite is best suited for women 5'4" and under with a smaller frame, although it will also work on women above this height (depending on preferred length when styled). 

    The Maxi is best suited for all women under 6’0” with a curvier shape to eliminate any uncomfortable fabric pulling, although it will also work on women who are a bit less curvy (depending on preferred length when styled).

    *If you have any questions on sizing, please contact us - Remember it is best to provide us with your height and size range of garments that you already own!

    Fit Advice: The Essential Long Sleeve Top fits a bit larger than our usual tees. We suggest to order true to your normal size, however since the styling is more flowy than our other Encircled tees, it is suggested to size down if you prefer a tighter look. As the fabric has a natural stretch, it will stretch to fit within ~1-2" of the measurements shown around the chest and hips.

    28"

    Fit Advice: We recommend sizing up if you are in between sizes with your measurements. The modal fabric on The Flipside Leggings is not as 'taut' as synthetic fabrics like polyester, so if you prefer a snugger fit in the waist area for your leggings, size down. The Flipside Leggings are pre-shrunk.

    Fit Advice: The Reversible Pencil Skirt fits true to size, but it's suggested to size up if you fall between sizes. The pencil skirt offers a smooth silhouette that slightly tapers from waist to hips and down through to the hem, hitting just at knee length. A pencil skirt should smoothly skim your curves, so to get a perfect fit, first identify your largest measurement then choose the size offering that range while still allowing for some stretch. The fabric on The Reversible Pencil skirt has a natural stretch, that will stretch to fit within ~1-2" of the measurements shown.
