I have a natural affinity for oversized button-downs. However, there are a few elements of traditional button-downs that I dislike and that I know wouldn't work with our manufacturing process.

Instead, the Sleeveless Kara Snap Top eschews traditional stand collars, visible buttons, and sleeve cuffs with pleating. What remains is the suggestion of this classic garment and its spirit, but with all the comfort, ease, and simplicity that are the hallmarks of ES clothing.

This sleeveless, midi-length, snap-front, tunic-length top skews masculine, feminine, and everywhere in between. It works in almost any setting—worn to an evening affair or the beach as a coverup. I wanted to capture the timelessness and the nostalgia; a crisp button-down is a constant throughout history and in most people's closets today, but this universal silhouette somehow still has the ability to intrigue.

I picture an evocative artist with the front half-snapped, an eccentric professor with shirttails over wool trousers, or a brilliant writer in a sunlit apartment, clad only in a rumpled shirt with no time for pants.

Medium-duty snaps are inside the placket, so they're invisible. Easy and accessible to open, sturdy enough to not pull apart on accident. Wear closed or open, and fasten as many or as few snaps as you like. Form and function in true harmony for this style!

Named in collaboration with Aja Barber after the contemporary artist Kara Walker, who we dream of wearing this style in the studio.

100% Linen. Lightweight, airy, and subtly sheer. This material feels like wearing a whisper. It has a cool, smooth hand-feel and catches the light most deliciously.

At 130 GSM, or 3.8oz/yd, our Lightweight Linen has enough weight to not feel too delicate for everyday wear, but is substantially lighter and floatier than our Midweight Linen. Excellent for sticky summer days, but also great for layering year-round.

Natural strength and durability are hallmarks of linen, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing, and is hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.

Linen is a natural fiber made from cellulose fiber inside the stalks of the flax plant. It is a complete product of nature, and can vary drastically in color and texture based on the growing conditions of the season.

Natural imperfections in weave are also to be expected and embraced-–slubs, nubs, and occasional bits of organic matter are common in linen. If you are looking for the homogeny and perfection of a synthetic fiber or a finely woven cotton you will not find it in linen.

Care: Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.

Ink

A true, deep black. It looks opaque against the body, but with a bit of movement and sun, the texture really gets a chance to shine. We’re life-long fans of pairing black with black, but you can really turn up the volume by pairing this classic color with a bold stripe or highly saturated color palette.

Salt

Our Salt color is more eggwhite than optic, which is how we like a white. It’s bright, its crisp, and it pairs perfectly with every other color (ever?) in our Lightweight Linen collection. We’re dreaming of a Salt on Salt vibe to bring our beachy, Italian Coast dreams to life.

Overcast

A stormy grey blue that reminds us of walking barefoot into the deepest lake. It feels more French Gray than blue, which gives Overcast a classic, yet trendy energy. If you run with the neutral-loving Coastal Grandmas, Overcast would be the breakout color of your summer season.

Canyon

Pink, but make it earthy. This muddy, blushy pink gives less Barbie and more Calamine lotion vibes. If you’re pink-curious, Canyon is a gentle, low-saturation hue that pairs superbly with neutrals and contrasting cooler shades.  

Lichen

Forest bathe in this fern-forward green. Complete with blue and gray undertones, this Lightweight shade reminds us of cool, wet Pacific Northwest winters, fresh-cut rosemary, and, to be honest, that L.L. Bean green of the 1990s.

3RD EDITION

This 3rd edition of the Kara has a relaxed, oversized fit. The silhouette is intended to be swingy and a bit a-line–not at all clingy at the hips. Generous tunic length provides great coverage. Slim shoulders and relaxed armholes.

If you've ordered this style in the past, we recommend ordering the same size! For example, if you like the fit of the Medium in the First Edition, we'd recommend ordering the S/M now. Or if you like the fit of the Large from the First Edition, we'd recommend ordering the L/XL now. The most important measurement for getting the right fit is the chest measurement.

Anna (wearing Canyon) is 5'2" with a 35.5" chest, 28" waist, and 37" hip. She is wearing the size XXS/XS.

Mikaela (wearing Overcast and Lichen) is 5'8" with a 34" chest, 29" waist, and 39" hip. She is wearing the size S/M.

Taylor (wearing Salt and Ink) is 5'6" with a 50.5" chest, 44" waist, and 54" hip. She is wearing the size 1X/2X.

Float On

Our lightest linen yet. Made for summer, transitional dressing, and ultimate comfort.
Sleeveless Kara Top Highlights

1. The invisible snap closures are easy to use and give the top a streamlined look. Wear this style open as a jacket or snapped up for a true top.

2. A collarless neckline eliminates fuss (and the ever-frustrating make-up transfer!).

3. The slightly a-line silhouette provides plenty of room for movement and ease.

4. The topstitched armscyes and back yolk give this style added durability and polish.

5. A customer (and Liz!) favorite for modest and accessible breastfeeding or pumping.
