Yes. It's a verb though, not an adverb. And if you think about it, if you wear something, in some way you are carrying it, too.

So it's like the French verb 'porter'? (any French-and-German speakers out there?)

the infinitive is: tragen = to carry, to wear and some prefixes can change the translation even more examples: beitragen= to participate; vertragen= to make up after a disagreement/fight; ├╝bertragen= to transfer; betragen= to sum up to
