Think of your capsule wardrobe like a “world’s best” recipe someone shared with you. It comes with guidelines - a checklist of essential ingredients and basic steps - but it is always open to interpretation. In fact, how you add your twist to that hand-me-down recipe is how you make it yours.

For both recipes and wardrobes, sometimes adding your twist is the easier part and the challenge lies in nailing down the basics. Piecing together the perfect foundation for your capsule wardrobe takes time, but the rewards in doing so are endless. Think of the pair of pants you have that goes with absolutely everything, the sweater that lasts through seasons, the top that blends style and functionality. Once you find these staples, everything else comes easier.

At ADAY, one of the pieces that made the cut as a capsule wardrobe essential is the wrap top. Keep reading to find out why.

Unwrapping the Essential Wrap Top

There are so many reasons to appreciate a wrap top, a piece that sings along with the comfortable chorus of your basic t-shirts, yet resonates notes above them in style. We especially love wrap tops for making versatility so fun. They add flair to our everyday outfits without getting too fussy, and their feminine v-necks and hugged waistlines make for a foolproof flattering silhouette. We also love them because they are timeless - a truly seasonless staple.

That being said, styling a wrap top can feel unfamiliar and deceivingly tricky. Here are a few ways we recommend styling our That’s a Wrap Top to make an endless combination of outfits possible.


How to Incorporate a Wrap Top into Your Capsule Wardrobe:

01. Tuck it into a pair of tapered pants…

...for a look that is as classy as it is comfortable. A tailored and structured pair of pants looks slightly softer and casually chic with this combination, rather than over-dressing a structured pair of bottoms with a similarly structured top. A wrap top with a flattering neckline and draped material is particularly perfect for this look.

02. Tie it up with a pair of bike shorts…

...for a summertime style, or something easy for a springtime commute or post-workout class casual look. The flexibility we love about the That’s a Wrap Top is that it lets you unwrap and tie it up for a look that is 100% polished and 100% casual.

03. Wrap it back with a pair of casual jeans

...for the outfit that’s ready in a snap. Simply pair this top with a pair of denim and your favorite booties on a colder day or a pair of shorts with flats on a warmer one. This tighter torso, draped neckline does wonders to highlight your waist while staying as comfortable as any other t-shirt. It doesn’t get easier to add a touch of elegance to your day around town outfit.

04. Wear it loose with your workout gear underneath…

...for a look that takes you from the yoga studio to brunch in a breeze. Just pack this ultra-light top in your gym bag and throw it on as you walk out the door. We also can’t recommend this top enough for your vacation wardrobe, where you’re probably packing your carry-on with light clothing that transforms into as many outfits as possible.

We hope these gave you some style inspirations for your wrap top. Trust us when we say this top will never be caught out of place.
