Multi-Way Designs Perfect for Travel

Chrysalis Cardi Maxi multi-way designs

There’s nothing that makes me happier when I’m packing for a trip than to have as little as possible. I make that happen with multi-way designs that are perfect for travel. I found a lot of companies that offer multi-way designs but they don’t always fit well or look good on my body type. That’s why I’d like to introduce you to Encircled. Encircled makes thoughtfully-designed, versatile clothing so you can travel lighter in comfort and with style. I have the Chrysalis Cardi Maxi and it can be  worn eight different ways to become a wardrobe staple.

From a cozy cocoon cardi, to a chic Grecian tunic, a glamorous one-shoulder gown, to a poncho, and a classic infinity scarf, The Chrysalis Cardi can be styled at least eight different ways. The secret is the hand-sewn snaps hidden along the hemline that hold the looks together. Unlike traditional multi-way garments, Encircled designs don’t require pinning, tying, or elastics to hold the looks together.

The Chrysalis Cardi Maxi is made from Lenzing Modal blend fabric, created through an environmentally-conscious process in which 95% of production materials are recovered. Modal has 10 times the yield of cotton, uses significantly less water, and is free of harmful chemicals.

The Chrysalis Cardi comes with a belt, made from the same fabric, and a full-colour lookbook with diagrams. Snaps are made from high-quality, rust-resistant metal. They’re lead-free, nickel-free, and and recyclable.

I chose the Chrysalis Cardi Maxi in Ginger Mauve, but there are several color choices. To get the most out of the multi-way design, I’d suggest a neutral color like black. That way, you can add color to completely change the look while still wearing the same piece so many different ways.

I recently wore the Chrysalis Cardi Maxi to an event in Montreal. I chose the Grecian Tunic style and it was super easy to do. I made sure all snaps were undone and placed the dress onto a flat surface, making sure the top edge with four snaps was facing up. Starting with the shoulders, I snapped together the closest male and female snaps to each other. I pulled my head through the center opening and put my arms through smaller side openings and adjusted by moving the snaps onto the top of my shoulders. I adjusted the drape in the front for a higher neckline and secured the belt high around my waist. That was it! I loved the way the dress flowed and I controlled the neckline and belt location for the perfect fit. There is a tag on the dress that explains the entire process or you can watch the How To videos on the Encircled website.

Multi-way designs are the way to go for travelers that like to pack light, especially when they look and feel as good as the Chrysalis Cardi Maxi.
