We’re bringing the blog back! To kick-start our new series we are introducing one of the latest additions to Tonic, Cubic – a British-based brand focusing on quality materials and original designs for high-street retail pricing. Let’s get ourselves up-to-date and see which trends we are loving for the Autumn/ Winter 2016 seasons:
#1 Bold Prints / Outerwear:
We can’t deny our love for the summer months, the air smells a little fresher and the world seems a little brighter, however the sunny days are few and far between and we love taking advantage of the lazy days that the winter months bring. The layering of textures and tones – and in this case patterns – is intriguing. Creating shapes and strong silhouettes and playing with textures is exactly what Cubic are doing for their Autumn/Winter 2016 Collection. This season it is no longer a faux-par to mix your polka dot coat with floral patterns and paisley prints, it’s being embraced! We will have lots of playful prints to share with you here at Tonic, so keep your eyes peeled!
#2 The A-Line Mini Skirt:
We can all agree that London might be the last place one would think of sporting a mini-skirt – and whilst we’d usually agree, there’s just something a little special about this Double Face Mini Skirt by Cubic. Down to its black buckle detailing to its layered prints, its polka dot pattern and cut bring us right back to the 70’s. This season it’s all about the A-line cut, it’s chic and ready to wear. The possibilities are endless – whether you want to go for something a little more subtle or a little more daring there are many A-line styles out there that you’re bound to fall in love with!
#3 Add A Little Couture To Your Wardrobe With The Ruffles!
Ruffles, ruffles, ruffles! Whether it’s ruffle necks, bell sleeves, a lettuce-edged hem, creating a bold but clean outline… we are out to make a statement with this trend, almost adding a couture touch to your high-street-style. We are definitely about subtle ways to make an average outfit incredible! It adds a dramatic element to any outfit and we cannot wait to see more of this around! Pass me up some ruffle sleeves immediately!
#4 Different Kind Of Denim?
Distressed, frayed hems, cropped wide leg jeans, whatever it is – we are getting experimental with denim this season, so look out for some wonderful styles of denim by Cubic and our other brands at Tonic. These choices are only making our wardrobe burst at the seams, as if it wasn’t already! Jeans are a necessity to the wardrobes of all of us, so why not dare to be a little different this season with some unexpected styles. With these jeans they can always be dressed up and down for any occasion – with a pair of heels for an evening out with friends or even with a plain white T-shirt tucked in and some casual shoes.
Overall, we’re pretty obsessed with all of these trends right now, and look forward to seeing how people style them into their wardrobe. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for regular updates!
