If you’re like me, dressing for certain types of weather can be challenging, especially when the weather at your destination is going to be nothing like the weather where you’re currently at.

We love traveling to beach destinations when it’s cold in Seattle, Washington. We have been snowbirding ever since we moved to the Pacific Northwest.
Here is our guide on what to wear in 80 Degrees Fahrenheit (or 26.66 Celcius) weather.
Tips for Dressing in 80 Degree Weather
- Less is best. Don’t be afraid to ditch the layers and just wear what you are most comfortable in. We love wearing tank tops and shorts.
- Opt for lightweight and breathable fabrics. Wear fabrics such as cotton, linen, silk, and rayon.
- Go short! Opt for bottoms that are short such as shorts, mini skirts, mini dresses, and more. It’s an opportunity to show off your legs.
- Show off your toes! The warm weather is perfect for showing off your feet. Wear flip-flops, sandals, peep toes, and more. Treat yourself to a pedicure while you’re at it.
Pieces that are Perfect for 80 Degree Weather
Tank tops are a must for warm-weather wear. We like to bring 3-5 tank tops when traveling to hot destinations.
T-shirts are great for keeping your shoulders shielded from the sun yet staying cool and breathable. We opt for cotton shirts because they are super breathable.
Crop tops are excellent for warm weather. They also show off some midriff skin.
The weather can get cold at night. If you’re going somewhere where the temperature drops at night, bring a light jacket to keep warm.
Our jacket of choice is an oversized denim jacket.
Shorts are necessary for warm weather.
Mini Skirts are great for summer wear. Opt for fabrics like cotton or polyester.
Palazzo Pants are great for hot weather because they’re typically made of breathable material and allow air to flow.
A maxi skirt is great for keeping your legs cool or throwing over a bodysuit or swimsuit.
Dresses & Jumpsuits
We love a dress with straps. We always opt for midi to maxi-length dresses. Cotton materials are great. Anything knit will be too warm, so avoid those materials.
Short Sleeved Dresses
For those who are conscious about your arms, try wearing dresses with sleeves. We love wearing dresses with short, 2/4, or long sleeves to protect ourselves from the sun.
Slip dresses are great for hot weather. They typically come with spaghetti straps and sit loosely against the body. They are also often made with lightweight and breathable fabrics.
Strapless dresses are great for avoiding tan lines. We love both bandeau dresses and off-the-shoulder dresses.
We love wearing footwear that allows our feet to breathe.
Sneakers are also a great option. They’re super casual yet can be dressed up or down.
We love wearing flats. They’re super comfortable and come in many colors, prints, and materials.
Sandals allow your feet to really breathe. The styles of sandals are also endless. Opt for a flat sandals, heeled sandals, or wedge sandals that are great for dressing up.
Swimwear is great for wearing in hot weather. I love wearing one-piece swimsuits as bodysuits and layering them with a skirt, pants, or shorts.
