Default At what temp do you wear sweaters and coats?

So many Florida folks are wimps. It got down to a nice 64 today and you'd think that a snow storm had hit the state! Coats, heavy sweaters and boots....and me in my sandals.

A coat? Practically never unless I'll be outside for extended periods. I see no point in hauling a coat around when I'm just running from the car to inside some place, especially if I'm going to have to carry the coat around with me!

In terms of when I start wearing winter clothing, it's somewhere around the 60-65 degree range. I guess I'm a wimp, too

I should have stated that the temp rose to about 70 mid-day.

At 64F I'll probably put on a shirt with long sleeves, and real sock instead of footies. Light jackets start at about 50F, cooler if there's no wind. The parka doesn't come out of the closet until its near 35F.

Almost never. I'm a Southern California chee-ild.
It really has to be in the low 50's, before I'd even think of
wearing a coat, or sweater.

No coat here, never need it. If I do it's rare.

Coat...it has to be 40 or lower. Sweaters....40ish. Long sleeves...60ish.

Today was in the 40's...no coat, just long sleeves.

Though I went out tonight to help DH...it is freezing..rain and wind. I had on a winter coat and gloves.

I am in rare long sleeves today - in the low 60's with a brisk wind. I have been in and out all day. The main reason I put on LS today was not the weather but that most other suitable clothing was packed.

Jacket - in the 30's

Coat - lower than 30 or a cold wet windy day

COAT?? I'm in Colorado and don't own a full length coat. Lots of jackets that I'll wear once it gets below freezing.

Today I was out in the yard. It was 37* and I had on a long-sleeve tee shirt and Crocs with no socks.

Long sleeve shirt, 50* ish

Lightweight jacket - low 40s

Winter jacket - teens or colder


I haven't owned a full length winter coat in, literally, decades. They are a PITA in the car.


It was in the mid to high 40's here today. I stayed home all day. Obviously we don't have the heat running. I am wearing yoga pants, a short sleeve t-shirt and barefeet.

Under 60 and the pea coat comes out. Which means I wear it occasionally in November and frequently in July. Aside from my dress coat, it's the warmest outerwear I own.

I have to laugh every time I'm in FL in January. The Floridians are in coats, boots, heavy sweaters etc. And DH and I are in T-shirts.

Actually, I rarely wear a coat here in the winter. It has got to be freezing, windy and probably snowing. In most cases, I'm just going to and from the car. I can't stand wearing a heavy coat in the car. I generally wear sweaters when it's cold outside. I do always have a coat in the back seat just in case I get stranded somewhere.

We are in Wisconsin, the coats don't make an appearance until it's in the 20s. Mid 40s today and my kids wore shorts to school. We have thick skin! LOL

Once a winter, we would all pile in the car and ride over to Collins Avenue on Miami Beach and laugh at all the dumb Yankees out sunbathing and actually in swimming.

Marina tourists do that too in San Diego . They think because its sunny the water must be warm .
My all weather coat is almost 10yrs. old , usually I wear it when it rains which is very seldom .

I guess I'm not as wimpy as I thought! "Winter clothing" to me just means long pants and long sleeves.

I'm the same. I wear a scarf 9 months of the year, although in warmer months its is a lightweight "summer scarf". I get cold easily and hate being cold, so I wear a coat or sweater when it drops to the 60's, especially when the is a breeze. I wear boots from fall thru spring. But I'm also outside a lot, not sitting in a warm heard office.

I love fall and winter clothing ....sweaters, chunky scarves, coats, boots...and wear them as soon as the temps get below 70 (not all together until it is a bit colder than that, but in pieces). Thankfully we have 4 seasons here and I'm able to satisfy the fall/winter fashionista in me

Temperatures here in the winter drop to the 20's, and can even go below zero. It has always amused me how some people will start putting on winter coats when the temperature in the autumn starts falling into the 50's. I always say to myself, "Gee whiz, if they are this bundled up now, what are they going to do when it actually really is cold?!"

Then there was the high school girl at my bus stop. One morning it was in the upper
50's and she was all bundled up in a coat, sweater & sweat shirt. Then less then a week later it was in the lower 50's (as in, colder than the day she was all bundled up) and she was standing there with nothing on but a short sleeved T shirt!

Our temps are very mild in the winter & it can be summer type weather in the winter or suddenly turn cold ...40F-50F . Layering is the solution .

I finally found a perfect leather coat 2 seasons ago and pull it out as soon as it gets to the 60's maybe I will wear it open but I love how it looks and feels.

I hate being cold and I feel cold easily. I will wear long sleeves 3 seasons. I wear long pants all summer too. I have not worn shorts in more years than I can remember.

But I really dislike weather that is too hot too. I will hide in a/ c in hot humid summer days!
