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

The Chrysalis Cardi is a travel and 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% Modal | 5% Spandex.
          1. Made from our buttery-soft Modal blend fabric. Modal is a renewably sourced, naturally derived fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp. Modal yarn is created through a closed-loop process in which nothing is re-released back in the environment during it's creation. It has 10 times the yield of cotton, and uses significantly less water. The dyes are 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.

    Get Insured Shipping- No Help Otherwise

    I’ve never odered from Encircled and was excited about trying a sustainable company. I ordered this beautiful dress for an upcoming international trip. I received notification it was delivered, but I never received it. I selected uninsured shipping because I never had an issue with packages going missing. I contacted Encircled through email and received a link to submit a claim with the USPS. After a few emails with Encircled, I was told because I selected uninsured shipping they could not reship my order. I’m so disappointed and writing this so others learn from my error in not choosing insures shipping.

    Broke in one use

    I wanted to love this but a snap broke after one wear. It's hard to travel light when your clothes break after one wear. Customer service didn't seem to understand how major of an issue this was. Maybe if they change their return policy...

    Love this!

    I am in love with this concept. I received my first Chrysalis cardi two weeks ago and love it. Like others my only negative comment is that two of the snaps already came loose and I have only worn the cardi three times! Yikes! Still I am ordering my second cardi today in a different color.

    A little more complicated than expected

    Guess it’s going to take some time... so many snaps, and so many combos, can remember anything. Every time I put it on, I have to go on to check. Just a suggestion, print the combos on the tab in the dress

    Streamline your wardrobe. Simplify your life.
