For me, balance is the key to staying cool yet fashionable under the Florida sun.  

Let’s go through a few ideas for Florida summer outfits for you: 

According to one of our Florida theme park experts, the best fabrics I can suggest to you are fitness-wear materials, i.e. anything you can pack that is made of polyester. Preferably any athletic options that are moisture-wicking!

T-shirt and Shorts 

Shorts and t-shirts are always the quintessential summer outfit that can be adapted to be fun and flirty.

Off-the-shoulder tops and breezy blouses can be draped loosely and won’t cling to your skin.

Poetsky Women’s Summer Off Shoulder Shirts Casual Loose Short Sleeve Tunics Tops
  • Size: This off shoulder shirt is flattering and lots of room. It is very loose if you buy your usual size. But if you go down a size and it’ll still look fit well.
  • Material: The casual shirt is not too thick and not to thin, stretchy and breathable, and feels amazing on your skin. The lightweight and comfortable material is cool in a very hot summer climate. Could wear it as a pajama shirt or dress over a bathing suit.
  • Design: This summer top gives the coverage and still look sexy. It hangs slightly off the shoulder shows just the right amount of shoulder. Could keep it on both shoulders, or pull one side down to show a little shoulders and collarbone skin. It fits snug around the hips, but loose enough that is very flattering for anyone feeling a little bloated or trying to cover a little bit of a tummy.
  • Match: This is new ‘go to’ for a casual yet sexy look. Very relaxed fitting and classic looking tee. It is very versatile to dress up or casual wear. It can be casual with flared jeans or skinny jeans or dress up with yoga pants or shorts. Makes everything looks more stylish.
  • Occasion: Cozy sexy t-shirt makes you look pretty and feminine. You can wear it for picnics or beach party with friends or family in summer. You also can dress this up for a night out or wear with a pair of shorts for date night on the weekends.

Put it together with some ripped jean shorts or even a cute tank top or crop top to keep your skin staying cool.
