Summer Style Essentials – Red, White and Blue

Posted on by Tori Hall

Memorial Day is this weekend and you know what that means – the unofficial start of summer! Not only do we remember and thank our service members, it is a weekend of parades, picnics and many pools open, too. So, what is a well-dressed doll to wear at all of these patriotic, All-American events? It’s simple – red, white and blue!

As you can see from the image above, it is easy to create lots of different looks with a few simple pieces. To create these classic summer style looks you just need four wardrobe pieces:

Denim shorts – a summer wardrobe staple, our denim shorts are perfect for 18″ soft-body girl or boy dolls

A white top – upgrade from a white tee shirt with some fun details like lace or ruffles. Our white lace trim tank top is one summer wardrobe essential that will go with everything!

White shoes – whether you pick sandals or tennis shoes, a pair of white ones will complete any summer outfit. We love these trendy white sandals with a strap on the back.

Red bandanna or similar accent piece to complete your look!
