Ronen Chen’s Shirtdresses of Summer

It’s that time of year again!

That moment when many Israeli girls swap sweaters for shorts and throw their leggings to the curb.

What’s the most popular fashion trend for an Israeli summer? Why, shirtdresses of course! The baggy kind you can throw on with flip flops and nothing underneath.

If you’re looking for some budget options, stores like Castro and Cubica are calling your name.

But if you’re looking for something special, why not check out the 11-piece capsule collection that stylists Mazal Hason and Reuven Cohen have created for Ronen Chen.

The 11 pieces are based on an interpretation of the men’s shirt. At times, the stylists deconstructed the shirt or even used the same shirt to make a shirt and a skirt.

Why do these dresses work? Because they fit the Israeli climate. They are loose and easy to wear, but have something stylish about them. Colors are blue, white, pink, orange…light for summer. They are also available in small and larger sizes (00, 01, 02, 03) meaning the plus-size girl can wear them, too.

And for girls like me, who love menswear fashion, and comfort, too — this is what we need.
