Beautiful but difficult
July 16, 2011
Like the other reviewer- I loved the look of it, but after trying it on when it got here and then taking it back off, I couldn't really sort out what went where when I tried to wear it out after that. With that and the knowledge that I'm always getting dirty with dogs and other stuff it would be in the wash a lot, and I could just see myself fighting to get it all untwisted and rewrapped.Pros: beautiful, Cons: difficult to get on stuff gets all wrapped up
Write a review for the ALO Origami Tie Wrap here.

I wondered if this was going to be difficult to wear but I am happy that it works for me. The wrapping is simple for me, I tie it high around my torso once and I'm good to go. Wears like comfy casual but looks very stylish! You can rise the collar, or fold it down to show more neck. I have used it both for day and evening. You can dress it up or down and it has a very chic Asian influence that is very classy. The fabric is soft and thin, so it is good for a cool day or evening.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

I come from an Asian background and actually practice some origami, which made this top all the more vexing since I could not figure out how to make it work exactly. The lighter fabric was dead-on for hot, muggy Texas days but the confusing wrap feature which should have been flattering since it hits below the bust instead of waist became my nemesis. After fighting, tying, channeling my inner origami moves, I decided that too many other things in life are complicated for me to willingly add more to it. It goes back, with a small tear from my eye.
Stylish, Yet Comfortable

What a find !! This top from ALO is very comfortable and looks great with leggings, jeans and yoga pants. The top is a great cover-up for going to yoga practice and can be jazzed up with accessories to match jeans or other pants. Fabric is very soft and is flattering with the wrap-around tie.Pros: Great design, Ease of use
