Vintage Summer Wardrobe Inspiration in red white & blue

Red, white and blue is always a classic combination - and very popular in the 1930s. Great for summer day wear and beach wear.

Beachwear in red, white and blue
I can just imagine these in red , white and blue, and the 3/4 length beach pants are just what I need for walking on the beach - longer than shorts but I can still paddle in the surf.

Elsa Schiaparelli wore, and I imagine designed, a similar pair.

She also designed this extremely modern looking sweater.  Just perfect for those chilly summer nights.

It's almost a burnt orange rather than red - my new favourite colour.

As to shoes, I would love to find a pair of wedges like these in red white and blue.
OK, 1940s but love them!
So patriotic don't you think?
