Since Argentina is so large the temperature varies within regions. Generally, the spring brings mild days and cooler nights. September is the coolest of the spring months with the temperature progressing as it gets November. This is a good time to pack versatile layers with slacks, jeans or skirts, t-shirts, sweaters, and comfortable shoes. Don’t forget to bring something for a night out on the town. Temperatures average from 72.5°F to 79.7°F (22.5°C to 26.5°C)
SUMMER – December, January, February:
The summers are the warmest of the months with high humidity and chances of light rain. These months will guarantee warm days and warm nights, be prepared and bring lightweight clothing such as dresses, shorts, and a rain jacket. Bring fashionable sneakers and platform wedges to pair with your outfits. Breathable clothing is key to survive these months while in Argentina. Temperatures average from 81.5°F to 83.3°F (27.5°C to 28.5°C)
FALL – March, April, May:
Fall time is more of the rainy season in Argentina, with mild days that get cooler from March to May. Although it can still be somewhat warm at the beginning of May, I would suggest bringing layers that are adaptable to all outfits. Think jeans, perhaps shorts, long sleeve shirts, sweaters and comfortable shoes like vans. A light jacket that doubles as a raincoat will be vital during this time of year. Temperatures average from 65.3°F to 78.8°F (18.5°C to 26°C)

Winter in Argentina can be quite pleasant and mild if you stay more north, once your go south it can become very frigid as you will be getting close to the end of the world (Ushuaia). It’s best to wear warmer clothes here such as long pants, long sleeves, wool socks, closed-toe shoes, and jackets. Layers are best so you come easily adjust for the different temperatures you will come across. Temperatures average from 62.6°F to 67.1°F (17°C to 19.5°C)
Dressing for Argentina Activities - (Click to expand)
Nightlife: Dinner and bars are a big part of Argentina’s culture, with food and wine being the center of everyday life. This is the time to show off your best pieces you packed and dress fun, chic, and stylish. Depending on the season you can wear dresses, jeans, a going out top, platform shoes and a small crossbody purse.
Daytime: During the day it’s best to wear more casual everyday attire. It’s more practical to dress for the activity and weather wearing breathable clothing. A skirt, t-shirt combo mixed with cute sneakers work well together and you can pair them with a neck wallet to keep your belongings safe during the day. If you are site seeing I would wear any jewelry as this can sometimes make you a target for theft.
Hiking: If you plan on going to Iguazu Falls or Patagonia for some hiking, which I highly suggest you will need to wear some form of hiking attire. Hiking pants or leggings, activewear top, and hiking shoes or comfortable walking shoes will be put to good use. Look at the season you plan on going as you will want to bring more layers if it’s chillier.
Tango: It wouldn’t be a trip to Argentina if you didn’t make it to a tango show. Here you can either go to a big show or a smaller hole in the wall venue, no matter what you choose it is an unforgettable experience. You will want to wear a nice outfit, dressy shoes, and a cardigan. Long pants and a nice button down for men, while a dress or jumpsuit is perfect for women.
