  • Description

    An artfully engineered top built for versatility and adaptability. This blouse can be worn with the knot in the front or the back for a myriad of different looks: a low V-neck front or full coverage in the front and a low V open back. Tie it in a loose, relaxed knot or in a waist-cinching, pin-up silhouette. Candlelight bouncing off your collarbone at a midnight cafe, warm sunlight stinging your back on a lap around the farmers market - the feeling of intentionally exposed skin makes you all the more aware of each moment.

    It pairs well with all of our high-waisted bottoms and also layers well over silk dresses. Its coverage of the shoulders and arms balances out the deep v. The plunging neckline adds tasteful drama to an all black elegant evening look and a bit of energy to a monochromatic, bright weekend ensemble. In Silk Crepe, this piece has so much elegance and drama - it's magnetic.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Silk Crepe

    Fiber Content: 100% Silk

    Description: A washed silk crepe de chine that drapes and moves like liquid. It has a muted, ultra-soft feel with a barely-there sheen visible only with movement. This is extremely high quality and medium-weight crepe that was custom developed just for us - meant to be worn, not coddled. All of our silk is garment-washed, so it has a lustrous yet matte finish and is totally machine washable.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cool water. Tumble dry on medium heat. Hems, necklines, and sleeves will wrinkle. Press with steam to shape, and they'll return to crisp edges.

    *Silk is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash and do not tumble dry.

Stunning blouse, great customer service.

We bought three ivory Maxine crop tops for the bridesmaids for my daughter's wedding. They looked absolutely stunning, so original and so classy. Words cannot describe how wonderful customer service was, Alexandra was amazing!

Simple piece

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!!
