A versatile top/dress for travel lovers with batwing sleeves and asymmetrical cut! Our signature sleeves can be snapped around your neck for a sleeveless halter, tucked in to create a one-shoulder style or tied at the waist for a completely different strapless look! The Origami's relaxed fit is incredibly flattering, especially for curvy body types, and is the perfect choice to take you from casual to cocktails.
“It’s our hidden snap detail in the sleeve and laser hem neckline that sets this versatile design apart from other brands. We do this to add versatility so you can wear your Origami as a halter or long-sleeve top for both everyday and dressy occasions.”
Our Venezia travel fabric is a high-quality poly/spandex blend (92% poly and 8% spandex) Very similar to your yoga, workout, and swimwear only with a lightweight, silky-soft finish. Think of comfy elegance. We love it for its quick dry, wrinkle-free, durable, and easy-care qualities.
