Encircled’s Chrysalis Cardi: This Travel Garment Can Be Worn as a Scarf, Dress, and Top

For years I’ve been searching for a versatile travel garment that can be worn many ways and translated into casual and professional outfits. I thought I’d found it in the Patagonia Kamala skirt dress, but I preferred one look over the other.

So when Brooke mentioned the Encircled Chrysalis Cardi as one of her picks for a great gift for the female traveler, I had to immediately look it up.

Kristi, the designer behind the Chrysalis Cardi, was inspired by a yoga retreat in Costa Rica. Her love of both her circle scarf and cardigan led to the creation of the garment, made with eco-conscious fabrics and handmade in Canada.

The Chrysalis Cardi can be worn in dozens of ways, but eight specific looks are showcased by Encircled. This includes a dress, a tunic, a scarf three ways, a cardigan, cape and halter.

Krisi, encircled founder, says, “Our Cardi comes with a full look book (with diagrams) and additional videos in our Members Only section on Encircled.ca.”

Is it difficult to figure out the different looks?

“I’ve heard from customers that it takes about 10 minutes to sit down and play with the Cardi to figure out all the looks.”

The product may cost $138, but with 8 looks, your cost to wear once per month in six months is only $3. If you’re going to be traveling to a place where you’ll need to dress up but also be comfortable, the Chrysalis Cardi is great for you.
