Meital Weinberg Adar perfects the look we’re always striving for: a cool and laidback style that still scores high on the fashion scale. For this Everyday Icon feature, Meital styled herself in new H&M pieces and favourites from her own wardrobe – proving it’s all about the details. The simplest ideas that elevate the look. Like tying an H&M Men’s Trend sweater around her waist, for example. Or pairing a voluminous maxi skirt with simple flats and a colour-blocked knit.
It’s no surprise that style comes naturally to Meital Weinberg Adar – she has been in the industry since she was 16, when she started modelling. Today, she works as a blogger, photographer and creative consultant.
WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE?
”It’s simple. I love colour blocking and mixing textures. Minimal prints if any, an oversized top paired with narrow trousers. It’s about the silhouette rather than the details.”
WHY IS FASHION IMPORTANT?
”It’s not important – and that makes it pure fun. Like dancing. It’s a way to express ourselves without words, a basic way to communicate.”
WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE ON EARTH?
”I love Tel Aviv. As a city it has everything to offer, but still a long way to go – culturally speaking. And I love being part of and being able to contribute to that growth. Also, the nature; you have desert, forest and the ocean just an hour away.”
IF YOU HAD TO LEAVE YOUR APARTMENT IN A HURRY, WHAT WOULD YOU GRAB?
”My camera and a banana. I always have a banana in my bag, just in case ☺”
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO MEET?
”Genius creative director Fabien Baron has been my professional guru and inspiration since I was very young – and I am lucky enough to already have met him. But I would love to have dinner with him, Sofia Coppola, Woody Allen and Mike Cahill. They have all created their own worlds, each one from a different angle. Wow, we would have so much to talk about!”
WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE DESIGNER?
”Raf Simons. I was so surprised when he left Dior. I love what he did for that brand, and I can’t wait to see what he’ll do next.”
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO LOOK?
”Boyfriend jeans, high heels, a t-shirt and a pair of good sunglasses.”
WHAT’S YOUR LATEST BEAUTY DISCOVERY?
”My ‘signature’ eyeliner ☺ I only line the outer corner of the eyelid – it gives me a sharp yet playful look, without it looking too heavy.”
WHAT IS YOUR GUILTY FASHION PLEASURE?
”Shoes and bags – of course!”
