Acclaimed Israeli fashion blogger, Olivia Dori, has scoured the Tel Aviv style scene and collected the best looks of the season. She’s revisited classics such as the Little Black Dress (LBD) and boho chic, and given them a modern spin to inspire international fashionistas. With her Mediterranean good looks, Olivia models each of these winning styles on the streets of Tel Aviv. We check out what she touts as nine of the top trends.
Little Black Dress (LBD)
As Olivia Dori often states, color trends come and go with the season, but black is a classic that never goes out of style and always looks great. Combined with a flowy, soft fabric, black can remain a staple even in those lazy-hazy-crazy days of summer.
For those days when comfort is key, a lightweight blouse and jeans are the best way to look fabulous with little effort. But finding a pair of quality jeans is of paramount importance in creating the impression of a tailored-made fit.
Floral patterns can be incredibly chic in the right amount– but just one piece is enough to bypass the overgrown English garden look, a landscaping favorite that doesn’t quite translate to fashion. When balanced out with an unpatterned item, you have an outfit that can take you seamlessly from day to night.
Athletic-inspired fashion need not mean looking fresh-off-the-treadmill. Rather, it’s a way of showcasing a fit lifestyle and collapsing the distinctions between comfort and beauty.
Take a cue from bedroom lingerie elements and transform them into a delectable daylight outfit. We’re talking about eggshell and taupe hues, as well as subtly ruffly and lacy touches that emphasize a girlish and playful sensibility.
That 70’s look. Put together some brown suede and a few fringe items and you’ll have achieved an updated 70s boho ensemble.
Shimmer It Up
Just a touch or a whole lot, shimmer adds a skosh of glamour to any outfit. Not for night alone, a shimmery little number makes an even bigger statement during the day.
Asymmetrical cuts work because they are surprising to the eye and therefore exciting. A little dress with a longer train in the back is a sexy and unpredictable take on the classic.
Pastels and White
Subdued and breezy, pastels and white go stunningly well with strappy sandals and a floppy sunhat.
