After landing and unpacking, travel wardrobes rarely seem as fun and fresh as when they were being folded with visions of sea and sun on the brain. But don't fret, Tel Aviv has a monopoly on perfectly curated shops hawking that seemingly effortless preened and pulled together beachy look that can be found traipsing all over town. You know the one - airy and modern palazzo pants, paired with a leather satchel, tasteful metallic sandals, a light linen scarf, tortoise shell sunglasses and minimalist, but free-spirited bohemian Israeli jewelry. It's a version of Jennifer Aniston circa 'Along Came Polly' and every woman loves a slice of that girl. So here she is - get shopping. (FYI, for the same sun-kissed waves, just head to Tel Aviv's beaches).
