Light Layers for Florida Winters

When visiting Florida in winter it’s important to bring along some light layers. While Central Florida hasn’t been particularly blessed with warm weather this winter, these layers are still important. I have sadly pulled out a winter coat at least 10 times since December. But I’ve also relied on light layers to get me through the mild winter days. Mild winter days in Florida are in the 70’s, at least for me. Other Floridians love the cold weather but I am unfortunately not one of them. So how do you go about layering for these odd weather days in Florida? I’m here to help!

Essentials of Light Layers

There’s a few items that are essential to layering lightly. While I use these as a guideline for Florida winters, they can also be applied to seasonal transitions. Like winter into spring or summer into fall. Below is a list of my favorite layering items.

  • Tights – Whether your a lace tights girl like me, or obsessed with the viral TikTok tights, there’s no beating them when it comes to keeping your legs warm.
  • Tissue Turtleneck – Thick turtlenecks really have no place in Florida. But tissue turtlenecks are made of thin fabric, that still keeps you warm. This is not just a great item to layer in Florida, but all around the world. Ski trip? Add a tissue turtleneck as your base layer. 70 degrees outside? Use it as your only layer.
  • Short Sleeve Cardigan – The best of both worlds! Wear it as a top or layer it over a blouse.
  • Overcoat – Like I said, I’ve pulled out a coat way too many times this winter. But it’s not the puffer you may imagine. An overcoat on chilly mornings is the perfect layer to add to any outfit. It’s chic and not too heavy that you’ll be stifled as the day starts to warm up.
