Red White Blue Outfit Ideas

1 Denim jacket+ navy stripe tee+ white denim shorts + red sandals

A jean jacket will be your best friend when completing red white and blue outfits. It makes the best topper and can keep off an evening chill or the chill from indoor AC that’s too cool. Pair a navy blue striped tee with white denim shorts ( or white bottoms of your choice). Finish with red sandals, a denim jacket and headband with red, white, and blue accents.

4 Red/white striped top + chambray skirt (or denim skirt) + red sandals + red clutch

For a festive Fourth of July outfit pair a red striped boatneck top and a chambray skirt. Red looks so good paired with a light blue chambray.

Sub wide leg chambray pants or shorts if a skirt isn’t your thing or sub a light denim skirt if you can’t find a suitable chambray option. Opt for comfortable yet stylish sandals. Wedge sandals are a great way to dress up a look.

Start with a pair of crisp white jeans. Opt for a slim or straight-leg fit, depending on your preference. White jeans provide a fresh and summery look, making them a great choice for a Fourth of July celebration.

Pair the white jeans with a red and blue floral top. Look for a blouse or a lightweight top featuring a bold floral print with predominantly red and blue hues. The floral pattern adds a touch of femininity and the red and blue colors evoke the patriotic spirit of the occasion.

Choose a top with short sleeves or a sleeveless design to keep you cool in the summer heat. Keep the accessories minimal and complementary to the outfit.

Layer the chambray top over a white tank. Choose a basic white tank top made of a lightweight and breathable fabric. The tank top will provide an extra layer and add a clean and crisp element to the outfit.

Pair the layered tops with red shorts. Opt for a pair of tailored red shorts that hit mid-thigh or slightly above the knee. The red color adds a vibrant pop to the ensemble, perfectly capturing the spirit of summer and July 4th.

Finish with red sandals. Don’t have red sandals? Choose a comfortable and versatile option such as white canvas sneakers or tan leather sandals. Both options will complement the casual vibe of the outfit.
