- 1989–90 – 1997–98 – The home jerseys were white with black pinstripes, and black numbers with blue trim. The Magic logo on the jersey was blue with black trim. The road jerseys were black with white pinstripes, and blue numbers with white trim. The Magic logo on the jersey was the city name ("Orlando") and it was white with blue trim.
- 1994–95 – 1997–98 – The Magic unveiled the blue road jersey, with white pinstripes in 1994–95. It had white numbers with black trim and the Magic logo was the city name ("Orlando") logo with black trim. Replica blue jerseys sold at retail were manufactured incorrectly until 1997, as they had black numbers with white trim. With the introduction of the blue road jersey, the black road jersey became the alternate road jersey.
- 1998–99 – 2002–03 – For the Magic's 10th anniversary they introduced a new look designed by fashion designer Jhane Barnes. They removed the pinstripes, but the silky home and away uniforms featured stars as the background. The home jersey was white, with blue Magic logo and numbers with black trim. The blue away uniforms had a white Magic logo (the team dropped the city name for the road uniform) and numbers with black trim. In the 2000–01 season the streaking ball logo on the beltline of the shorts was replaced by the current secondary streaking ball arch logo on the right leg and the Magic wordmark added on the back.
- 2003–2008 – For the team's 15th anniversary, the Magic opted for a cleaner (sans the striping and subliminal stars) look this time. The home jerseys were white and the Magic logo was blue with silver and black trim. The away jersey reverted back to the city name, and was blue. The logo and numbers are white with black trim.
- 2008–present – For the 08–09 season, the Magic have once again created another uniform. The Magic returned to the pinstriped uniforms to commemorate the team's 20th anniversary. The current design combines the elements of the previous three uniform designs the Magic used in its 20-year history. The home jerseys are white with silver pinstripes, while the away jerseys are blue with white pinstripes. The font used for the number and player/team name has also been updated to a more modern look. Magic alternate logos are on the shorts and the back of the jersey. This is the fourth model in franchise history.
- 2010–present – The Magic unveiled a black alternate uniform, with silver pinstripes. The uniform mirrors that of the regular blue road uniform. This will mark the first time since 1998 that the Magic will wear an alternate uniform, though in recent years the Magic's alternate uniforms were worn as throwback uniforms as part of the NBA Hardwood Classics program. A variation of the uniform is also used for Noche Latina every March, with 'Orlando' substituted for 'El Magic', with 'El' in black and silver trim and 'Magic' in blue and silver trim. This was unveiled in the 2011–12 season.
- Until recently, the Magic had a team rule that prohibited the wearing of headbands by its players during games; this is a rule similar to the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz.
The Magic were also the only NBA team to wear black sneakers and socks in all their games, a tradition that began upon the hiring of Stan Van Gundy in 2007; however they wore white sneakers and socks at home in all of the 2008–09 season and early in the 2009–10 season before switching back to black sneakers and socks. They have since switched back to wearing white sneakers and socks at home, except when wearing their black alternate uniforms.
The Magic participated in the NBA's "Hardwood Classics" campaign in 2003, debuting the retro black away jerseys from 1989 during Christmas Day. It was a little unusual to call the uniform a "retro" since the Magic wore them as recently as 1997–1998, however they have already had four jersey designs in only 20 seasons of play. The following season, they wore the 1994–95 blue alternates for "Hardwood Classics" and in 2005–06, they wore the home pinstriped jerseys from the inaugural year. In 2006–07, the Magic wore the black away retro jerseys again for "Hardwood Classics". In the 2009–10 season, the same black pinstriped jerseys were used for the third time, making it the most-used Hardwood Classics Nights uniform design since the promotion's inception in 2002.
Up until the current uniform revision, Bo Outlaw had been the only Magic player to have worn all of the Magic jersey designs, and during 2005–2006 "Hardwood Classics," he was the only player on the roster to wear the home pinstriped jersey when it was still the current uniform, having joined the team in 1997 (last season of the original pinstripe uniform). He repeated the same feat in 2006, wearing the black pinstriped jersey.

“I place these numbed wrists to the pane
watching white uniforms whisk over

fear what they will do in experiment”
