Well, you pretty much cover all the seasons in Florida in those 3 months!

October is usually still pretty hot, but cooling. Around mid-October, weather can be beautiful, or still hot (but it's usually now cooler in the mornings and evenings). You will need summer-weight clothes, with sweaters for some restaurants (a/c).

November is usually very pleasant, but can still have some hot days, or some windy, cool days, or rainy days.

December can also be really nice; however I came down for a week about 3 years ago and hit a cold, windy snap - wished I had gloves for golf and wore a t-shirt, sweatshirt and golf pullover to play golf - and was still too cold. We just hit the wrong week - the rest of the month was generally lovely.

Last year, December was mostly cold and windy a few nice days here and there - but that was unusual. I'd say you need more than a sweater, though, unless you are just going from zipped up golf cart or car into a store or restaurant. I'd bring at least one warm jacket and a couple pairs of jeans/pants. And socks!

And yes, everything is casual unless you plan to go to an upscale restaurant in Orlando somewhere.

And yes, black is fine just about anytime, just too hot during the day, IMO. I wear my darker golf shirts in late fall/winter/early spring. Sometimes you need golf jackets or pullovers, or just schedule golf according the ever-changing weather forecast (and good luck with that - must be hard to forecast in Florida as the forecast can dramatically change in just a couple of days).

I don't think the colors, styles, etc, make any difference. People wear everything in TV. There are no style/color police.

Bring layers. And a few sweatshirts and light jackets and a pair or two of closed toe shoes, but generally speaking, pedal pushers and soft pullover knit tops and light cardigans and sandals will be acceptable and comfortable for dinners out and golf (golf should have collared shirts and of course golf shoes)and just about everything, even church. You can pick up a...NICE little collection at Bealls Outlet for less than $100. We did it for daughter who packed incorrectly.

Come on down Senior. Hugs are waiting!

"Resort" wear not necessary

Default "Resort" wear not necessary

unless you already have it and want to wear it. This is not Naples or Palm Beach. You do see it, and the shops sell it, and sometimes it feels good to look extra nice and dress up a little, but honestly, many many people go to happy hour/restaurants straight from the golf course or from a craft group or whatever.

It is absolutely casual here and you do not feel out of place wearing shorts/capri pants/golf clothes and flat sandals just about anywhere, anytime.
