Fabric

🍃 Modal Evolve Top made from a blend of Lenzing Modal® | Spandex

Modal is a naturally derived, plant-based fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal is made through an environmentally-conscious process where 95% of water and materials used to make the fabric are recycled. The fabric is also OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means it is free of harmful chemicals.

🍃 High Twist Tencel Evolve Top made from a blend of TENCEL™ Lyocell | Spandex

The TENCEL™ Lyocell Evolve Top is more structured compared to our original Modal Evolve Top, while still offering an ultra-soft and stretchy feel. This fabric will hold its gorgeous drapey shape all day long. TENCEL™ Lyocell is made in a closed-loop process, meaning no water, harmful chemicals or bi-products were released back into the environment. Dyes are hypo-allergenic and OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified to be free of harmful chemicals.

CARE:

  • Machine wash on the gentle cycle, preferably inside out.
  • For best care, hand wash and lay flat to dry.
  • Do not dry clean, and do not put in the dryer.

A light iron can be used if needed. Use a towel in between the iron and garment.

Love this clothing and a few other things...

First off I love the quality fabric. It hangs so well in all the pieces of clothing I have purchased from Encircled. I love the details and the thought that have gone into these pieces and the fact that they all work so well together. I have been on a mission to simplify my wardrobe and it's amazingly easy to look put together and smart now. I have fewer pieces which are of much better quality, with a lot less stress plus I'm supporting a woman led, Canadian company. That ticks all of the boxes for me. Yay!

Work staple

This top has fast become a work staple for me. The plus size (3x) is flattering, the material is amazing, and the fit is on point. I love the versatility! The tank style is a little awkward with the ‘wrap’ of the sleeve, wish there was a simple less bulky snap solution to that.
Now please expand the comfy dress shirt to extended sizes too!

Exactly my style!

I really liked it, I think it's cool that I can adjust it slightly for a different look. Took it on a cruise! perfect travel top. I bought an XL . Fit perfect around waist but top was a little looser. Made me conscious of cleavage and bra straps in casual settings. But I love the drapey style.

Comfortable and Gorgeous!

I just love this top! The fabric is soft and comfortable and the cut is flattering. After purchasing, I saw notes in the reviews that it tends to fit big and I had been thinking the same. For my next one, I might try one size down, but I am still very happy with the results of buying per the sizing guide. I wish it came with a card explaining the 8 options! It was easy to figure out 4 of them and I can see how 2 others look in the online photos, but I have no clue for the other 2, and it would be helpful to have instructions. The top washes beautifully (I put in in the machine on delicate and then hang to dry - no wrinkles). I think I could easily own a few of these as staples in my summer wardrobe!

AS SEEN IN

I consistently rave about the fabric that Encircled uses for its products, and The Dressy Sweats are no exception. Honestly…I could LIVE in these pants...

Jessica / TheBelleVoyage.com

The fabric is so soft. I’m not exaggerating when I say that these are the most comfortable pants I’ve ever worn.

Nicole / OhMother.ca

These really are the perfect go-to pants to dress up or down.

The Evolve Top FAQs

What size should I choose?

We recommend sticking with your typical size. But if in between two sizes, size down.

What's the difference between the Tencel and Modal fabric?

The Modal fabric is knit and dyed locally in Toronto. It's super-soft, and has a slight sheen to it. It's a mid-weight, smooth fabric.

The Tencel fabric is more structured compared to the Modal, while still offering an ultra-soft and stretchy feel. This fabric will hold its gorgeous drapey shape all day long.

Why is the Evolve Top so expensive?

At Encircled, we believe in investing in quality over quantity in your wardrobe. The Dressy Sweatpants are just that. The fabric is sustainably-sourced, and locally knit and dyed. This is a super premium fabric - not your average 'sweatpant' fabric. The pants are also incredibly well-made by fairly paid sewing teams who are local to Encircled. We're proudly 100% made in Toronto, Canada. Lastly, the Dressy Sweatpants are timeless so they'll last for years to come in your capsule wardrobe. If you think of your average cost per wear, the Dressy Sweatpants will seem like a steal.

How do I care for my Evolve Top?

We recommend gentle wash, cold water with an eco-friendly, mild and fragrance-free detergent. Hang to dry. If they wrinkle, we recommend using a steamer, or an iron between a towel.

Do you offer returns?

Yes, we have 30-day returns on non-final sale merchandise. Details here.

How can I figure out how to wear all the looks?

We have a detailed blog post on how to do each style here

make it a carry-on kit

Pair it with the Dressy Sweatpant and The Chrysalis Cardi and you'll be ready to travel carry-on only.
