Bright Colors with Liat

As Robin Williams once said, ‘Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’ And what symbolizes positive vibes more than bright optimistic colors? Liat forecasts brighter, more colorful clothes in everyone’s wardrobes in the months to come. Since the winter fashion consisted of rougher colurs, the change in weather will bring about the change in atmosphere. Liat is also a fan of light clothing and is pictured below wearing a light maxi skirt with an oversize printed t-shirt by the Israeli designer Sabina Musayev.

Conservative Fashion with Linor

As spring is just around the corner, many women are tempted to wear more exposing outfits. But Linor sees the near future of fashion on the modest side, with longer and less revealing clothing. There has been a recent wave in fashion where everything was exposed and boundless and now there will be a backward effect. She adores the classic look and is pictured below with a sweater sewn by her own grandmother in the 1970s. The bold ring she is wearing, found in a boutique store in Camden Town, London, is another trend she believes is here to stay.

Casual Foot Wear with Noy

Who said beauty has to be pain? If you are a fan of both comfort and style, continue reading because sneakers are in for spring, big time. This season you can be comfortable all day long with your pick of casual shoes to work, school, or even a night out. There is a significant amount of designer and brand sneakers to choose from, so make the pick. The fashionista, Noy, prefers matching her Nike sneakers with a stylish asymmetrical dress.

Cultural and Ethnic Clothing with Romi

Ever been abroad and felt like adapting the local look? This is what ethnic fashion is about. Romi, a Tel Avivian fashionista, believes that the current monochrome ethnic look will be out style and a different kind of ethnic dress will in. The look will be adapted not from Far Eastern countries or from African tribes but rather from Middle Eastern countries. He also sees a vibrant spring ahead, with colorful clothing back in style. Here he is rocking a unique monochrome outfit, head to toe.

Prints with Maya

The fashion industry adores playing with prints. From pop art to fabric graffiti, a wide range of designs can be found on the runway. Maya expects this spring to be particularly floral and light with loose clothing covered in flowery patterns. She loves spicing up her look by adding a printed garment to her outfit. She is pictured in a comfortable, school friendly, outfit with a turtle neck shirt, tailored printed pants, a button-up denim shirt and oxford shoes.

Circle Skirts with Avival

What garment is better suited for spring than skirts? From slit skirts to asymmetrical ones, this piece will be dominant in spring. Whether it’s a floral skirt or simply plain blue, Aviva claims it’s a must have. One type of skirt which seems to be particularly on the rise is circle skirts. They are lightweight, fitted at the hips, and relatively short with a flare at the hem. Below Aviva is displaying her pick of an oversize outfit; a floral kimono and a sun hat, making the statement that spring has arrived.

A Mix Between Couture and Street Wear with Avishi

Have you ever thought of wearing your favorite couture dress with sneakers? If not, then you should start considering it, since a mixture between haute couture and street wear is now fashion forward. The two categories come from different worlds. Haute couture is about high fashion, custom made, and elegant clothing. Street wear, on the other hand, comes originally from the surf and skate culture and is an urban type fashion. Avishi sees current fashion shifting towards a unique mix of both styles.

The Semi-Transparent Fashion with Stav

For anyone whose bag is usually a mess; it’s time to start the spring cleaning, since the semi-transparent fashion is the new designated style. The bold trend includes transparent bags and sheer fabrics. Stav says fashionistas are beginning to wear clothing and accessories that consist of a combination of different materials, from plastic to suede. She also predicts that pastel colors will be in for spring as well as slit dresses. She is pictured wearing one of her favorite slit dresses from the clothing store, Zara.

Socks as a Fashion Statement with Hadar

This one will knock your socks off. Or not. When it comes to fashion, details are important. As Charles Eames once said, “the details are not the details. They make the design.” Hadar foresees a new style mode of socks, for both men and women. Colorful socks, printed socks, high socks…as long as they are distinct, they create a fashion statement. She also predicts a mix and match style which will have a combination of youthful and sophisticated pieces for spring. Très très chic!

Fitted Clothing with Aviatar

Bigger doesn’t always mean better. Although the oversize style has been trendy for quite a while, and rather comfortable, Aviatar foresees a change in atmosphere. Today many oversize items are in style, including bags, sunglasses, woman cardigans, and male t-shirts, amongst others. But the next thing will actually be fitted clothing and clothes will once again go back to their regular proportions. Hint: this is the time to show off a hard earned gym body with fitted outfits.
