Hello fellow busy fashionistas of the world!

Our favorite kind of fashion consists of clothes that are not only chic but also comfortable and wearable; Clothes that are flattering without having to skip a meal and practical throughout a busy day. We introduce the item of the season: The slouchy trousers!

These pants meet all the aforementioned categories and also come in gorgeous prints you can mix and match for a unique look. These are great pants to transition into fall season with: Practical and breathable.

Vera wore colorful flower print trousers with a white T-Shirt, studded moccasins, piled silver necklaces and geometric drop earrings.

**Styling Tip** Just because you’re stuck in an office all day doesn’t mean your outfit should be boring. Another way of spicing things up is with your nail polish! Rony chose attention-grabbing bright blue!

Since these trousers are loose and oversized, we recommend wearing something more form fitting on top, for a slim look.

Startup Nation
Israel is known worldwide for its success in high-tech development and business. The country is ranked 3rd in the region and 38th worldwide on the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index, as well as in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report. It has the second-largest number of startup companies in the world (after the United States) and the largest number of NASDAQ-listed companies outside North America. That’s quite impressive for a country with a population of 8 million!

The Israeli economy was ranked as the world’s most durable economy in the face of crises, and was also ranked first in the rate of research and development center investments. Israel is well known for its innovation and development of cutting-edge technologies. For example, it is a leading country in the development of solar energy and water conservation. Some Israeli startups invented products that billions worldwide can’t live without. Case in point: Waze, the GPS application that has become a household name.

What this means for local architects like us is that more and more office towers are getting built to house all those creative minds. Innovation is apparent in the architecture as well: modern high-technology designed, ecological buildings are being built all over the city.

Every girl has her favorite piece of clothing, a piece that she can wear with everything for everything and that makes her feel at her best! But what do you do when your favorite piece is only suitable for warm weather? Layering!

Winter outfits

Layers are always in fashion, the more the merrier! Layering not only makes the outfit suitable for almost any weather conditions, but can also conceal certain body parts and accentuate certain parts you’d like to show off.

This allows the comeback of your favorite summer staples, but is also a very economical attitude – rather than buying new, revive your favorites by wearing them with new layers and accessories.

Rony and Vera

Rony’s favorite piece from summer is a blue and pink-collar cut out romper. To make it suitable for the cold months of winter she wore it over a striped button down blouse and print tights. Rony completed her outfit with leopard print slipper flats, cream and pink bag and neon chain necklaces.

**Tip for mixing prints**: Keep the outfit in the same color palettes or color families so that even if you wear three or more different prints, they will agree with each other rather than clash. Rony did so with her striped blouse, the same color family as her romper and trench, together with print tights that go with her bag.

Vera’s favorite summer pieces are an oversized pale pink tunic and a burgundy cotton skirt. To make these items cold-weather ready she put them together with a cream knit sweater, faux fur fluffy cardigan, and light brown tights. To complete the outfit Vera wore brown brogues, black leather bag and an oversized ring pendant chain necklace.

**Tip for mixing colors**:  Keep the outfit in similar shades and texture for each color. Vera did so by working up the shade and color scale, from cream to light pink to brown to plum to deep wine red.

A trench is a must during the rainy Israeli winter, so both of us topped the outfit off with our favorite trench coats.

Another great way to bring some summer sunshine into your life is by wearing bright shades of nail polish! Vera chose bright pink and Rony chose bright orange.

We’d love to see how you revive your favorite summer staples, share your outfits on our facebook page, or tweet them to us!!

Hello fashionable people!

Great fashion designers are not appraised only for the trends they create but first and foremost for the detailing of their creations. A designer piece doesn’t have to be “fashionable” per se or scream the latest trend but rather must have unique qualities all its own, whether in the fabrics, the craftsmanship, the sewing, the cuts, etc.
We love to discover and support young rising stars in the fashion industry, and one of our favorite promising young designers by far is Adi Ashur; and let’s just say we are deeply impressed! The multitalented Ms. Ashur expresses her penchant for all fields of design: jewelry, textile, structural design, in her clothes and accessories creating very interesting and unique pieces.

Adi Ashur Designs

Adi’s latest collection is a theatrical yet lavish fete of upholstery, chiffon, canvas, satin, linen, organdy, and lace, as well as feathers, metal, beads, glass, and cotton weaving.

Evening Gowns

The first dress Rony wore was a maxi satin flower print dress with sheer lining in the front. The delicate A shape of the dress is flattering on every figure and gives the illusion of a long body and never-ending legs.

Adi designed the print of the dress using graphic design softwares and then dyed the fabric herself.

Rony wore the gown with an oversized canvas flower necklace, rhinestone cuffs and rhinestone adorned briefs (all designed and created by Adi).

Chiffon silk and high heels

Rony felt like a major diva in this red carpet-ready gown!

Vera wore a pink layered skirt sewn out of upholstery, buttoned up blouse, and an 18th century-inspired flower print canvas waist coat with appliqués. The look was completed with a bright pink cuff and pastel colored leggings.

Vera’s second outfit was a layered natural satin orange skirt with a hand knitted cape and print leggings.

The voluminous skirt was perfect for a slim body like Vera’s, it accentuated her waist and hips and made her legs seem even slimmer.

Rony’s second dress was a hand-printed yellow collar mini dress which she wore with hand-printed leggings and a chain and glass necklace that attaches at the back of the dress.

This is the ultimate party dress: it has a sexy waist-cinching cut, it flows when you move and is so unique you don’t need to wear any accessories.

However fun, this dress does not disappoint on the craftsmanship; it is a gorgeous couture creation!

Clothes like these require a very unique backdrop. And so we visited Tel Aviv’s Florentine neighborhood, a bustling center of design studios, workshops and furniture shops.

Out and About in Florentine

Florentine, Tel Aviv

The walls of most streets in this neighborhood are adorned with graphic designs, ads, writings and graffiti. This isn’t like any graffiti we’d seen before though, the graphics in this neighborhood are true works of art!

Needless to say we felt like real stars walking down the streets of Florentine in Adi’s amazing creations! Thank you Adi!

What We Wear and Adi Ashur

What We Wear and fashion designer Adi Ashur

The inspiration for Adi’s latest collection came from old circus posters and the retro graphic quality they had. The posters announced the arrival of a new circus and the feeling of a magical phenomenon filled with lights and colors. Adi wanted to create in her collection the effect of walking placards, prints patterns and textures that become three dimensional, come alive and assume a life of their own. In her prints, cuts and techniques Adi brought the old circus into the 21st century.

It's a wrap!

Hello friends!

We have recently noticed that Vogue magazine, in its fashion spreads, has been noting not only which designer the clothes featured were designed by, but also the models wearing them. This goes to show that the model wearing the clothes matters; She (or he) is no longer just a hanger but a personality that is just as important in making the outfit what it is. Anyone can buy the latest trends, if not by the designer who made them then by the million stores that imitate them. However, not everyone can wear the latest trends and own them and make them all their own. In a world where the most successful pop stars are the kookiest (case in point Lady Gaga and Nikki Minaj) and fashion bloggers become style icons, we are entering an era of personal style where the statement matters more than the clothes.

In that spirit, the current rage in the fashion world is prints: the more the merrier, bold prints mixed together against all rhyme or reason. In this trend all rules go out the window; forget what you’ve been told before about what “clashes”, now it’s up to you to put together whatever you see fit and whatever makes you happy! What an exciting time!! Mixed Prada prints at London fashion week. Photo courtesy of vogue.com.

We decided to dedicate a post to this because we’ve always believed that it’s all about the person wearing the clothes and how they put their outfit together. Vera Watts is a Russian Born fashionista who was raised in Israel, grew up on punk rock, loves cats and has a background in modeling. Ever the punky funky chick, Vera always likes to put together outfits that keep everyone on their toes. This time she chose a totally unique look by putting together prom queen chic with punky accessories. Vera wore a sheer polka dot blouse over a print dress. She accessorized with a plastic and metal necklace, studded belt, and studded leather moccasins. Rony Shapira was raised in the United States, has been putting together outfits for herself and others since the age of three, collects fashion magazines obsessively, and has a background in art which won her nationwide awards and recognition. Always a lady, Rony has always been into the retro feminine look. This time she chose retro 70s, a look that is very big right now, and put a girly twist on the flower children chic. Rony wore a toucan print peplum blouse with heart print cropped pants. She accessorized with a rope and gold necklace, big cocktail rings, silk hair tie, and peep toe booties.
Besides being fashion fanatics, Vera and Rony aspire to open an architecture firm together. What about you? Tell us about yourself and your personal style statement!

Go on and shock everyone with your most plentiful and print-full outfit! Don’t forget to dare and let your personality shine!

Hello ladies and gents!

For a recent girls’ night out on our trip to the desert, we decided to bring some flowers in bloom to the desert landscape.
Flower prints are lovely and girly and can be worn both as a chic unique print and as part of a more casual outfit. For our drinks we decided to rock the flower print in a pretty casual way, yet cool and edgy for a night out. Of course we wore heels to dress up our outfits, but kept to the more comfortable wedges.

Vera wore a flower print tank dress, loose and comfortable but romantic and colorful. She gave the dress a cool twist with her camel suede men’s vest and camel platforms.

I wore flower print high waisted chiffon overlay shorts with a ripped top. I dressed up my outfit with dominatrix-like platform heels.

Needless to say, we had a blast!

Hello you fashion people,

On this episode of Wardrobe 101 What We Wear styled Carine Baker, a very busy girl with a background in fashion who doesn’t have much time or energy for it anymore.

Carine turned to us at What We Wear to help her sort through all the strong items she has but doesn’t know how to put together. Carine’s original style is very much Las Vegas, where she grew up: sweats during the day and everything flashy and revealing at night. She has a lot of short shorts, see through tops and sky high heels. While these pieces are all fabulous separately, together they may look a bit too revealing and tacky. Our goal was to show Carine how to wear these separates in a new classy and chic way that would also flatter her figure.

Carine used to style fabulous outfits for herself and her friends but she complained to us that somewhere along the line she lost her mojo. Our job was not only to put together her favorite clothes but also bring back her flare and the stylish touch she used to have. We think it worked quite well!

Outfit number 1
Summery prints: Print flowy blouse, print shorts, gold bangles, pearl necklace, peach purse and two-toned peeptoes

Outfit number 2
Sleek and ready for business: Gray trousers, layered top, silver chain belt and jewelry, platform sandals and a men’s hat

Outfit number 3
Office fashionista: Ripped white jeans, 3 toned shirt, print scarf, pearl necklace worn as bracelet, pearl earrings, and tan wedge pumps. We also tried this look with polka dot peep toes which would be more doable to wear for a full day

Outfit number 4
LBD Carine style: Sleeveless Little Black Dress, beaded fringe vest, golden chain belt, gold bangles, python sandals. We also went for shiny faux croc heels to give the look a different feel.

Outfit number 5
Punk rocker: Mesh hooded top, high waisted shorts, oversized stones necklace, feather earrings, and peep toe wedges

Outfit number 6
City weekend outfit: Flower print mesh blouse, jean shorts, oversized knit cardigan, print scarf, and high heeled espadrilles

Outfit number 7
Sweet for summer: print shorts, print mesh top, sleeveless knit vest, fish pendant necklace, bangles, and multicolored rope sandals

Outfit number 8
Chic Mademoiselle:
Civilian Clothing tee shirt, high waisted skirt, waist belt, knit hat, high heeled peeptoes

Thank you Carine for participating in this styling experience!

Until next time,

xoxo Vera & Rony

We like to keep our outfits interesting and unexpected; wearing bold prints is a great way to put together a creative outfit. Sometimes even mixing different prints can be a visual fete, as long as it’s done wisely.

Vera channeled Jackie O in a houndstooth shift dress which she wore with her skyscraper-high platform booties, a beautiful ornamental gold necklace, gold adorned bangle and a black leather jacket.

I was all about the romance in a pale pink leopard print puff-sleeved dress, heart print tights, camel pumps, silk hair tie, and lots of big jewelry. Sometime the best place to shop is your friends’ closets; my brown leather jacket is from my best friend (it wasn’t Vera’s closet I raided this time!)

One thing’s for sure about prints, you will definitely not go unnoticed while wearing them! So go put on some fabulous prints and get ready to stop traffic!
