Advice on buying summer conference attire in the USA in winter?

I'm an academic at a US university, and I'm going on a research trip for a very high profile conference in Cancun in December. I do not own anything that I could call 'professional' or even 'smart' summer attire. As an early career academic, I've managed to get away wearing sports clothes, jeans and holy jumpers for the last six years. I've only just started to put together a professional wardrobe!

Because I plan to network, and the conference itself is very high profile, I want to look put together and not turn up looking like the stereotypical academic - a complete scruff-bag. So my question to you is: how can I put together 3-4 outfits that will suit 28 C temperatures when everything in the stores is geared towards winter attire?

In terms of my personal style, I'm quite restrained and I hate skirts. My professional wardrobe consists of black Levis 712 jeans, a navy joules blazer, Breton striped tops or plain shirts. If i'm feeling particularly adventurous, I may even wear a scarf.

In the summer, I'm generally found in denim shorts, a tank and flip flops - be it at work or at home. Hence why I need help!

Any suggestions would be gratefully received!

Update: there isn't going to be air conditioning as it's a big environmental conference, so they have encouraged us to wear appropriate attire.
