This top is a great simple piece. I have the matching Bel skirt in rust, and they look great worn together or separately. I’m dinging a star because the silk is quite thin and unlined, so you really do have to be ultra-aware of what you’re wearing (or not) underneath. I also would prefer if the ties were just a little longer so I could wear it a third way, as a more demure v neck wrap top tied in back. Right now it doesn’t get a ton of wear since it’s limited to fancier occasions (tied in the back) or casual events in the warmer months (tied in the front).
Loved this top!!
I don’t know if I’ll ever be brave enough to wear it knotted in the front, but I believe in myself for 2020!!!
Such a beautiful top!
I ordered the Maxine crop at the end of autumn for a holiday so haven't had the chance to wear it loads yet. But it was wonderful on a beach, with the ties worn in front over a bikini during the day and and at the back for dinners in the evening. I'm pretty flat chested but this top makes me feel beautiful without having to worry about my boobs. I hope to wear it a lot more next summer!
Gorgeous, high-quality, and so unique!
This top is beautifully constructed and made of really lovely silk--it feels very smooth and high-quality. I've tried it both ways, and it looks equally good wearing it knotted in the front and in the back (though I'll probably end up wearing it knotted in the back more often, for obvious reasons). I bought the ivory color, and it's not too sheer. Love! This was my first purchase from ES, and consider me a future repeat customer.
Wish I could wear this
I agree with the previous reviewer. I love this top - tied in the back especially. I have had it for awhile and can't figure out when I am going to wear it. If I was younger, maybe. Still figuring it out :/ It is honestly beautiful, I just can't figure out how to wear with a bra. Props to the confident ladies who can rock this top! I am envious

For my fantasy self
I love this piece in pictures but in real life, it's not practical for me. I find myself hesitant to go braless and not liking the look of the top with a bra underneath. It's a beautifully made item, feels soft against my skin and unfortunately has only been worn outside my house once. Expensive lesson to learn that my real life clothing needs do not include a top like this.

Beautiful and versatile
This is a beautiful top. It’s my second piece from ES in rust silk and the colour is amazing. I love how you can tie it at the front and at the back. I have a small bust so I don’t have any issues wearing this without a bra but I can imagine you would be able to hide a bra depending how you tie it.
best summer top ever
I absolutely adore this top. I almost exclusively wear it tied in back. I wore this nonstop in the summer; casually with denim shorts or acid wash jeans or with a long slim skirt for date night. I wore this well into fall and winter, tied in the back with a chunky sweater over it. The black silk is luscious and sturdy, opaque yet breathable. The tie feature allows me to change from a fitted T look for work (under a blazer), or a loose, breezy look over mid-rise pants for lounging and errands. I wear this tied in back over my Mara Jumpsuit when I am not feeling the plunging V neck of the Mara. I recently even found a third way to wear the top: overlapping the two ties in front and then tying in the back for a full wrap top look (size up for this to work).
I wear an XS in the Ella, and could have gotten an XS in this top, but the S is perfect for letting me style the top in many different ways. I am hoping to get this in linen for the coming summer!!
