Time to pack for a week in Tel Aviv… As always the question…what should I bring this time? As Tel Aviv and its surroundings offer everything from lazy days at the beach, to city life to history and excursions to some of the most holy places in our history, packing can be a time consuming task. However, I hope my Tel Aviv style and packing guide below will make the preparation a bit easier!
Tel Aviv Style: What to Pack For A Trip to Israel’s Mediterranean Gem ?
For a complete Tel Aviv style, I would strongly recommend you to focus on the following three styles: Lazy Days at the Beach, the City Chic Girl and the Excursion Time Style! See my Tel Aviv Packing Guide below.
Style no 1: Lazy Days at the Many Tel Aviv Beaches
The first Tel Aviv Style to prepare yourself for is the beach one! Tel Aviv life is very much centered around the long white sandy beaches that stretch along the Mediterranean. The vibe here is relaxed but with a bit of a hip touch and the days are hot.
A big cool sunhat, the bigger the better, sunglasses, at least three pairs so you can alter, as well as your favorite flip flops and beach sandals are musts to put in the suitcase.
This summer has been the summer of summer dresses and jumpsuits in all styles and they are just perfect for the Tel Aviv beach and long lunches at the many beach restaurants.
Shorts. The summer of 2018 was the summer when shorts took over the short skirts in my wardrobe. Jeans shorts but also other more stylish and boho chic options is perfect for a city beach destination like Tel Aviv. Add some off shoulders and you have a number of hip outfits for the beach days!
Style no 2: Excursion Time
A must when in Tel Aviv is to explore the surroundings. A trip to Jerusalem is less than an hour away. A day in the Old City of Jerusalem is a truly mind blowing experience but also requires some planning as many of the places have a strict dress code.
When going to Jerusalem go for clothes that are covering your shoulders and legs, still you want to look chic. I went for an oversized T-shirt together with my new favorite summer pants from Rodebjer.
I just love these pants. They fit almost every occasion, can be used for the beach, the city and turned out to be the perfect choice for hot days in the narrow alleys of the Old city in Jerusalem. Put on a comfy pair of ballerinas (below my rosé gold ones from Dune) and do not forget the hat, the sunglasses and the camera. All set for a day in the footstep of some of the most prominent ancestors of our history.
Style no 3: The City Chic Girl
Tel Aviv is a city that never sleeps, a city full of restaurants, bars, kebab places and clubs in all forms. The city has a very relaxed atmosphere so you can easily stay in your flip flops and beach dress all night long. Still this city is full of hip eateries and small roof tops, perfect for a city chic look. For a dinner at Jaffa, you can easily go for a more relaxed style. Here the streets are filled with small outside restaurants and a lovely relaxed vibe while in Tel Aviv I would go for a more chic outfit!
Jumpsuit. Again? Yes I just love this piece of fashion. To Tel Aviv I brought my black short one from Sandro. Perfect for a night out together with my golden sandals that I bought in Rome.
The summer of 2018 was the summer when a new color entered my wardrobe – green. Read all about it in my previous Travel in Style Post. I am absolutely in love with all green pieces from Samsoe Samsoe and their dresses are my favorites.
The dress below has been one of the most used items in my wardrobe this summer. Perfect for exploring the city and and for an evening out!
Last but not least, my new favorites from Toteme. This long dress and the pretty top was a perfect match for the bohemian and urban chic rooftops.
They can be worn together but also separate. The top together with my favorite jeans has been a hit this summer and the skirt with a top is also a perfect match.
So fill your suitcase with clothes for the three looks above and your Tel Aviv style is all set!
