Sam's Middy Outfit.

Summer Outfits are outfits for the Historical Characters that are associated with the Summer Books, for the most part. These outfits were originally shown on the covers in the first two issues of the books.

These outfits tended to focus dominantly on lighter, more summery clothes--often in whites or lighter colors--and each set (through Kit Kittridge) also included a hat. For the first five characters, this also included the first set of new shoes in Central Series Collection order that were in a new style different than the Meet outfit shoes.

Initially, summer outfits came as two separately sold sets--the main outfit, and the second pair of "summer" shoes. Felicity and Samantha's were later bundled together and sold as one; on the Wiki, they are listed as a complete set if they were later available as such.

One Best Friend Character, Elizabeth, also received a summer outfit; Emily Bennett received a swimsuit, but it was not considered a summer-themed outfit.

As of the retirement of Josefina's summer outfit and boots in 2018, all of these are retired.
