Winter Fashion Trends at Tom Tailor

Both my husband and I walked out the house wearing TOM TAILOR this morning… totally unplanned! We are both big fans of this edgy fashion brand and love their clothes. Since discovering the label about a year ago, the TOM TAILOR sections in various Edgars stores have become one of our go-to destinations when shopping for clothes each season.

The good news is that TOM TAILOR have recently opened their first stand-alone store in Cape Town at Canal Walk. I’ve already popped in twice in the past month! On my most recent visit I snapped a few photos too to show you what you can find on the rails.

But first a bit more about the brand and the winter fashion trends you can expect to see from TOM TAILOR……

TOM TAILOR’s new styles are more detailed, cleaner, fashionable. For both the men’s and women’s collections, TOM TAILOR will be introducing a more subdued colour palette. Gray and blue tones are accentuated by burgundy and bottle green highlights. Whereas the winter looks of the new TOM TAILOR WOMEN brand are very feminine, the TOM TAILOR MEN collection emphasizes a new masculinity with pithy details and authentic effects.


Alongside dark blue hues, black and neutral gray tones dominate the new women’s collection for the coming winter. Grunge and rock are the focus of the Contemporary Urban Style. Yet, both themes have a very feminine and clean feel. Contrasts breathe life into the new Urban Authentic Styles from TOM TAILOR WOMEN. Feminine lace is combined with washed velvet, while sequins and glitter remain key details. The contrast between romantic prints and rugged denim adds a new casualness to the collection.

The TOM TAILOR Denim Female collection, it’s all about structure, sense of touch and embellishments. Adornments are here to stay and even growing from little rhinestones into flashy gems, heaped onto every product group in colorful assortments. Some key features: Padding, top stitching and quilting. These will be found especially on sweaters and pants and increasingly often on skirts, too.

With winter setting in this weekend here in the Cape TOM TAILOR has the perfect winter wardrobe essentials. Look out for fine, fluffy and long-haired knitting wool, long and thick woven cardigan sweaters and parka or biker style jackets. Biker pants and leather leggings continue to be a basic must in winter, too.

Less colour and darker tones with more black distinguish the Autumn/Winter season of the new TOM TAILOR MEN brand. Dark blue, black and a variety of grays form the core. Deep red and brown tones combined with lighter natural tones add just the right accent.

The wintry looks from TOM TAILOR MEN appear very masculine. Above all, the focus is on textures and the fabrics run the gambit from melange, moulinées and textiles with coloured naps to herringbone, cable stitch, honeycomb and jacquard all the way to fine waffle weaves.

An important component of the new masculine side of TOM TAILOR MEN for Autumn/Winter 2015 is rugged detailing with authentic effects such as different galvanized metal zippers, leather details and buttons with luxury tortoise shell or wood looks. Denim, too, plays a big role and not just in jeans but also robust denim shirts.

TOM TAILOR MEN takes the cake in the coming season with their outerwear, including padded quilted jackets and hard rock biker styles in leather are a real highlight among the lightweight jackets for in between seasons.
