Yuval Ohayon: I call my style 'Sporty Elegance'

10/10/2018

My name is Yuval Ohayon. I'm 28 years old and currently living in Teal Aviv, Israel.

I work as a manager of operations and suppliers department in a large tourism broker in Tel Aviv. This is mostly a back office job, but I often participate in important meetings that require elegant dress code.

I also try to stay fit and live a healthy lifestyle, so I go to the gym 4 times a week. For this reason, I have a special bag for my sportswear and a large wardrobe of sport outfits.

I'm 1.86 m tall (6ft 1'') wearing size M (40 in European standards) for shirts and pants. 

When you live in Tel-Aviv you need light clothes. The weather is usually 28-38 C in the summer and 10-20 C in the wintertime. For daily outfits, I usually choose mass market brands e.g. Bershka, Mango. When I want my outfit to be more elegant I mostly find it in Zara man or Massimo Dutti. They have cleaner cut, sharp lines and better fabrics.

I call my style 'sporty elegance' with a blend of unique items. I love walking along the streets and find boutique stores that sell one-of-a-kind clothes.

The story of my style

Six years ago I weighed 50kg more than today. When I lost weight, I had to find a new style that would emphasize my new shapely body and make me feel comfortable while not being too tight at the same time. Over the years I have realized that light buttoned shirts work great with me. On the one hand they show a young yet formal style, and on the other hand I feel good about myself. Also, I like how my feeling is communicated to other people. Today I'm still developing my style and I look for inspiration in fashion magazines and Instagram accounts such as @menzrobe.

My favorite wardrobe pieces are old leather jacket that my grandfather gave me before he passed away, vintage white pants with a 70's look and my wide brim suede hat I have recently purchased on my way to Italy.

10 wardrobe pieces that characterize my style: 

  • White sneakers
  • Buttoned shirt
  • Skinny jeans / stylish shorts
  • Sportswear for the gym
  • Sunglasses
  • Fossil Watch 
  • Silver bracelet and a designer necklace
  • Hat (optional)
  • Small brown handbag
  • Bomber jackets for windy days

Best stylish regards,
