TOPS TIME: Onyx Nite is heading in a new direction. The 10-year-old company, which specializes in contemporary and plus-sized dresses, recently launched a line of separate tops it’s calling “scooter tops.”
The collection features a variety of styles and silhouettes, including tank tops and T-shirts, and a range of prints and sequined looks. Many of the tops are made in stretch fabrics. The line began hitting stores this spring and includes about 60 pieces.
Wholesale prices are about $24 for women’s and $29 for plus sizes.
“We have seen more interest in separates and many of our customers were asking for it,” said Mark Brown, president. “This is more a diversified look and can be worn for social occasions or with a suit for work.”
The company said it is targeting sportswear and dress departments for the tops. Onyx Nite also recently launched a plus-sized children’s collection under the label Onyx Kids.
