Wrap Tops: How to Incorporate This Classic Piece Into Your 2023 Capsule Wardrobe


Did you know that wrap tops were invented in 1600 B.C. for the women of the royal Shang Dynasty? 

Since then, the timeless aspect of the garment has empowered women to remain simultaneously stylish and comfortable despite changes in fashion trends.

The versatility of the wrap top means it can be combined with other clothes in your wardrobe to create different outfits that are suitable for various occasions.

For example, you could pair it with tapered pants for a chic office look or style it with a pair of joggers when going for a grocery run. 

It is important that you consider making the wrap top a staple for your capsule wardrobe because: 

  • A wrap top can be worn at any time of the year. You can layer it under a jacket during winter or wear it as a light cover-up for summer.

  • Additionally, it’s perfect for traveling since it’s usually made of a light fabric that doesn’t take up too much space in your suitcase.

  • Lastly, because of its versatility, you will spend less time trying to find something to wear. 

Without further ado, let’s delve into what you should consider when selecting the perfect wrap top for your capsule wardrobe.

Definition: A capsule wardrobe has about 30-50 high quality staples. You can create new, stylish looks with a variety of combinations. It is great for light-travel and perfect if you are minimalistic.

Step 1 - Choose the Right Colors for You

Shopping for a wrap top with a set color palette in mind, not only saves you time and money but also makes for a smoother shopping experience. 

How do you know what colors to select when buying wrap tops you ask?

Well, you simply have to analyze your capsule wardrobe to identify the primary colors that dominate your closet and use that information as a wrap top buying guide. 

To help you get started follow these four easy steps: 

  1. Take a pen and paper and spend about 30 minutes going through your closet as you note down the primary colors of your clothes. You don’t have to write down the exact shade, simply note the general category a color falls under.

  2. Categorize your clothes into their base colors. Let’s say you notice that 60% of your clothes are black, 20% are red, and the other 20% are white. This means that your base colors are black, red, and white.

  3. Lastly, consider what accent colors would complement and contrast the base colors of your wardrobe in a flattering manner. If your base color is red for example, purchase a wrap top with a moss green or creamy-white accent color.

Expert Tip: Choosing a wrap top with a V-neckline helps elongate your neck and gives you a flattering silhouette 

Aday's That’s A Wrap Top is available in eight stunning colors that are sure to take your wardrobe by storm. 

It is available in papaya, moss green, white, black, lapis, sunflower, merlot, and oat

Our wrap tops are vibrant and lively so that they can inspire you to feel confident and sophisticated in your favorite colors.

Step 2 - Mix and Match Wrap Tops to Generate New Outfit



Mixing and matching wrap tops with other staples in your capsule wardrobe such as tapered pants or high-waisted shorts, allows you to do more with less

A wrap top is considered a versatile and timeless piece because you can dress it up or down to effortlessly transition from one event to another in a matter of seconds. 

If you were on a work trip for example, you could tuck your wrap top into a pair of dress pants for an afternoon meeting and afterward, tie it into a knot and slip into some comfortable sandals for an evening beach stroll.

A wrap top is convenient because it can be worn at any time of the year. For instance, it can be layered with a jacket and a scarf for winter or tucked into high-waisted shorts for summer.

Combining wrap tops with different jackets, pants, shoes, and accessories in your capsule wardrobe, can help you create an assortment of outfits that allow you to express your unique style and individuality.

You only need to tap into your creativity and have fun coming up with new combinations that complement your wrap top.



When buying a wrap top that’s perfect for mixing and matching, consider the following qualities:

  • Can be worn in different ways: Versatile wrap tops can be wrapped, draped, and snapped. Select a wrap top that has adaptable features that make this possible. Aday’s That’s A Wrap Top can be styled five different ways for separate occasions.
  • Is comfortable and breathable: Ensure you find a wrap top that is both stylish and cozy. Our wrap top is made from Technical Silk, a breathable fabric with a weave that allows for air circulation to keep you cool.
  • Has adjustable sleeves: A great wrap top has flexible sleeves that can be rolled up to show off your lovely forearms, or secured around your wrists to avoid discomfort when worn with blazers or jackets. 

For this reason, we added snap cuff fastenings to our wrap top which can be snapped open or closed at will to suit your preference.


Expert Tip: Consider adding accessories to complete your outfits. They’re perfect for expressing your personality and sense of style.

Step 3 - Invest in High-Quality Wrap Tops That Last Long

Purchasing a high-quality wrap top is a rewarding investment that will serve you for several years. As Aldo Gucci, fashion harbinger, said: "Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten.”

These words ring true for wrap tops as much as they do any other product.

A wrap top made with premium fabric not only saves you money but also presents an opportunity for you to contribute positively to the movement toward a more eco-friendly planet.

In contrast, low-quality wrap tops may have an enticing price tag, but in the long run, they end up costing you more than you think. 

This is because the fabric used to make cheap wrap tops can only be worn a total of seven times before needing to be discarded.

Not only do you end up losing money, but you also increase your carbon footprint knowingly or unknowingly as a fast fashion contributor.

Research by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reveals that approximately 11.3 million tons of textile waste end up in landfills every year. 

The waste is a byproduct of the devastating impact caused by fast fashion.
