Fashion for Israel (before)

POLAND | Monday, 8 November 2010 | Views [507] | Comments [1]

In a few days i'd be boarding for plane for Israel. November, cold temperatures and rains in my part of Europe. But what about Israel?
Most of the time i'd be spending in the city of Jerusalem, and a party weekend in the Tel Aviv - the Lonely Planet's nr 5 city to be (this year's rating).

Lonely planet in my haunting for what's in fashion and ok to wear in Jerusalem. Tel Aviv easier to spot. How to be fashionable, culturally correct but still ownself in the Jerusalem - holy and religious town.

Tel Aviv to be the Sin City.. i can take what i want. i'd just report later. but what's up in Jeru? 23'C after noon, but only 12 in late evening..

Internet not coming with help. First googling for "fashion" and "jerusalem" lead me to an article describing where to shop for maternity clothing in Jerusalem. Well, still some years till i'd be haunting for such. But what clothes shall i be taking now: November AD 2010?

links i found (though of hardly any help):
- Fashion Forward (still not open, but a good forecast at least);
- 'Fashion in Israel' blog by an American living now in Tel Aviv - at least an attempt, but low-average quality.
- 'TimeOut Israel' - interesting proposal - especially for english-speakers, but out of 100 pages just one's about the street fashion and the other proposals for "fashionable" sets are far out of fashion in Europe or Northern America. well.. 
....and than last-but-not-least comes the image googleing: and the helpful results

but still... any help/advice/suggestion, personal observations or to-read hints are really welcomed.

Hi, Israel has a very "relaxed" fashion sense. As long as you don't walk the streets midday in a sequinned mini, you will be OK. The only advice regarding Jerusalem: in order to visit various holy sites be sure you have a long skirt/pants and a if you intend to go bare shouldered get a scarf to cover them...
