monocrome mania

The monochromatic trend is a staple on the runway, and is often repeated season after season with designers creating bold new looks that master the black and white style.

This season is no different; the monochrome trend is one to definitely stock your wardrobe with. But don’t be fooled, this straightforward palette requires attention to detail.

Thurley Winter14 collection is a credit to designer Helen O’Connor as it boasts and eclectic mix of bold patterns, sheer fabrics and leather. 

LIFEwithBIRD’s Ready To Wear AW14 collection is striking to say the least. Filled with bold patterns and a clever mixture of fabrics the designers, Bridget McCall and Nicholas Van Messner, have definitely taken Autumn Winter dressing to the next level. I love these looks because they are bold, daring and are statement looks that can be taken from the office to the streets. (http://www.lifewithbird.com/) 

Manning Cartell, let’s just take a moment to appreciate these out of control designs. With sheer panels, bold stripes, animal prints and leather pants (yes, it is worth the investment ladies), Manning Cartell have designed an AW14 collection to be envied. (http://www.manningcartell.com.au/) 

These three Australian designers have the monochrome trend perfected; pair them with killer boots, a fedora hat and some silver accessories and you’re on the way to being snapped in a street style blog. R x
