There's something about heading off for a day of rides, cotton candy and carnival games that brings out your inner kid. When you’re heading out to an amusement park, whether it’s a day with family and friends or hanging out on a date, you want to be comfortable. But you also want to look cute. Whether you like riding rides like a kid or prefer a leisurely stroll taking in other park amenities, you’ll need to be prepared from head to toe.

Casually Chic

For a day at the park for a child's birthday party or a special event, you can dress up a bit knowing that you won’t get wrinkled wiggling next to a stranger on a ride. Pair thigh-length navy cuffed cotton shorts with a navy-and-white striped shirt with gold rope embellishments. Slide on gold rope thong sandals and don dangling gold twist earrings.

Water Park Warrior

If your plan includes sloshing around in the water rides, wear a brightly colored two-piece bathing suit underneath a white ribbed tank top. Wear a pair of khaki shorts and a colorful pair of flip-flops. This easy, breezy style keeps you ready for action when it’s time to climb on a slide or get wet on an adventure ride. Slick your hair back in a tight bun and ditch the jewelry – it’s likely to get lost anyway.

Comfy and Cool

As your day of adventure calls for “anything goes” style, be just as comfortable as you are fashionable. Wear a bright green or yellow ruffled top with dark denim cut-off shorts. Slip into a pair of white strappy flat sandals or a metallic flat. Wear a stylish pair of dark brown aviator sunglasses and sling an oversized canvas tote bag over your shoulder. Wear a hot pink waterproof watch and head out for hours of fun.

Date Night Diva

When the honey you’re dating has asked you to spend the early evening at the amusement park, wear a super-cute one-piece romper in pale pink with black accents. Slide on black sandals or funk up your look with black patent leather high-top sneakers. Throw an oversized black-and-tan hobo bag on your shoulder and finish your look with black feather earrings. To house your identification and money, wear a jade green pouch wristlet.
