Trends and styles vary widely between countries and cities. Whether traveling to Russia, Berlin or Tel Aviv, drastic differences in fashion are likely to be a cultural shock for anyone. Regardless of whether you are traveling in the world or just interested in what fashion is in other countries, here are some of the major cities and some of the current trends.
- St. Petersburg: When it comes to the Russian style, it's all about dressing. No matter where you go, even if you just wanna sweat pants, it's better to have cute Victoria's Secret sweat pants, not the ugly gray that looks at the American. If a woman wants to fit, her hair, makeup and nails must be perfectly ready. Russian women like to look good. They like sexy clothes like tight pants and low-cut tops. If it's cold (of course it will be cold), wear a waist, tight pants and very high heels. If you want to stand, you can wear shoes when you are a woman and have a shoe when you are a man. The shoes are just right when you're in the gym. After that, the Russians love style, but they do not necessarily have to be expensive. You can get wholesale clothes when they look expensive.
- Tel Aviv: Israel is an interesting place and you will find that the country is full of many different styles. But generally, the Israeli style is about comfort. This is actually the opposite of Russian style. Very rarely, you can see an Israeli girl wearing very high spiked shoes, even in a nightclub. The Israeli style is quite subdued, even the hippies. Often, both men and women wear sporty dreaded locks, wearing vintage clothes. Women love loose knitted jeans pants, cute clothes so they can ride bicycles and always have comfortable sandals. Israel is usually a very hilly place, so comfortable shoes are mandatory. Israel has been so reluctant to style that they are likely to see people wearing jeans.
- Berlin: Berlin is a big fashion capital, and here you will see some funky trends that you probably will not see anywhere else. There are some important trends that are popular in Berlin, but the "hipster" is definitely included. It is a city that is sure to know how to be afraid and the fashion in the streets shows. Style can only be described as mainstream, does not fit and anything goes. Dresses, tops, costumes and funky hair for the 80's. The style is somewhat Tokyo-esque, but perhaps a bit rough on the edges. If you're looking for authenticity, you have to go here.
