Amusement park outfit ideas to keep it cool and comfy in summer and all year around.
Hanging out at an amusement park is such a fun way to spend the day (or even the weekend, depending on which one you go to!) but you have to go in for the long haul! It’s a lot of walking, but a lot of fun! Just prepare the best you can with your outfit and you’re good to go.
The right shoes and the right seasonally appropriate clothing go a long way in keeping the energy and morale up at the amusement park!
If you’re going in the summer, crop top and shorts all day. The fall, you can’t go wrong with a flannel to keep you warm!
It’s all about comfort when you’re hopping from one rollercoaster to the next, so check out these ideas that will keep you cute while keeping you ready to take on the day!

Amusement Park Aesthetic
With the rising popularity of the aesthetic streaming show, Euphoria, there was a rise in the aesthetic of colored lights and ferris wheels. They’ve always been a classic vibe, but they’ve become even more aesthetic in recent years when we get scenes of Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, and Alexa Demie wreaking havoc on the town fair!
Taking Insta photos in front of the ring toss or under the neon purple lights ensure the cool factor of your visit to the amusement park! It’s a major trend so you have to try it! While it really took off due to the popular show, and each of the characters have their own dramatic personal style, bringing your own personal style is part of the aesthetic.
Best Shoes For A Theme Park
This might be a no-brainer, but something comfortable! So obviously we’re going to think that sneakers are the best choice, and they might be, but the seasons play a role in this too!
If it’s summer and you’re melting the second you get through the gate, tennis shoes are still a top contender.
However, if you walk well in walkable sandals, like Tevas or Cloud slides, these are an option for you as well!
I tend to shy away from sneakers when I go in the heat so that my feet can breathe, but I almost always wish I had gone with the most comfortable walking choice! This is all personal preference, however.
In colder months like the fall and winter, sneakers with layered socks are perfect, but so are boots you can walk in! Doc Martens aren’t technically great walking shoes, but I always find myself more comfortable than I anticipated, so these are some of my go to’s for walking and staying warm!
What Summer Clothes Are Appropriate For The Park?
Some parks do have a dress code regarding summer clothing like crop tops and such, especially if you’re heading to an incredibly family friendly park like Disney! They’ve been known to hand out merch vouchers to get a new tee shirt to cover the top you had worn that day. So check it out before you head!
Most parks simply request that you refrain from wearing vulgar, inappropriate, or offensive graphic tees, as it’s a family establishment! They also usually require cover ups over any and all swimsuits (even if there are water rides on the premises) and that everyone wear shirts at all times, including men.
These are pretty self explanatory, even if we wish we could walk around with a swim top in the blazing summer heat! So just follow what you would likely assume to be the dress code expectations for somewhere that attracts families, and you’re probably in good shape!
Again, check the park’s website before planning out your amusement park outfit ideas just to make sure!

Cute Amusement Park Outfits For Fall
Fall is one of the trickier times to dress for an amusement park!
It depends on where you are and what the climate is like, but in general, you’re going to have cooler weather in the morning and evening, with a blaze of heat in the afternoon. This can make it tricky to plan the whole outfit!
You’ll likely want to think about light layers that you can take off and tie over your shoulders or around your waist in a trendy fashion!
If you’re looking at a day that’s going to be cold from start to finish, a sweatshirt might be your best friend!
Here are some cute fall outfits for going to an amusement park!
- Oversized Denim
- Cropped Sweatshirt
- Flannel Layer
- Leather And Tee
- Sweatshirt And Jeans
- Cargo Overalls
Athleisure is so easy in the summer, making this the easiest season to plan an outfit for a lot of walking! Bike shorts, tee shirt, sneakers, done.
But you want to take into account the color of your shirt, so that as you sweat during the day maybe it won’t show on your top! For this reason I avoid light colors that aren’t white– and more specifically I avoid light grays in the summer!
Check some of these outfits out for functionality and style!
