I wear a coat/jacket only when it dips into the 30s or below (if it’s windy).

It was 42 this morning and I loved it – in all my short sleeved glory.  LOL.  Fiance wore a coat to work.  He’s always cold.

I consider anything under 10 degrees really cold. I have a knee length wool jacket I wear all the time. And gloves, all the time. I keep hand lotion at work because they are SO dry when I arrive in the morning.

We hardly ever get “really cold” here in Phoenix, but I will admit that a 38-degree night is on the chilly side after months of 110+ days and overnight lows in the 90s. Two Decembers ago, I went out with a friend for New Year’s Eve and I admit to being very cold. But it’s mostly that it’s really hard to dress for colder weather here because the days still get so hot, so “cold-weather attire” is usually pointless, and then you get stuck in a surprisingly cold situation and you’re wearing flip flops, a t-shirt and a skirt. 

I love love love the cold weather, and I miss it. But after 15 years in the heat, my coldness wimp-o-meter has reset to higher temperatures.

@GroovyHippieChick:  I cannot wait until mornings are in the forties here. I’m so jealous right now.

I feel like REALLY cold is the teens or 20s. When that happens, I wear a coat, scarf and gloves. I’m not really a hat person since I have crazy curly hair and knit hats make my hair frizzier than anything.

Don’t get me wrong, if it’s in the 30s or 40s, I’ll definitely still have a coat on, but I’m in PA where it definitely dips much lower than that!

I live in LA, so what I consider cold is wimpy.  50s is chilly, 40s or less is really cold.  Still, I just need a good jacket or coat and it’s sufficient.

When its really cold outside I like to wear my warm and cozy Columbia jacket, my Ugg boot and my fuzzy hat and gloves that Fiance got me.

I think that the 30’s are really cold.

In Chicago, cold is under 0 degrees. I usually wear a ton of layers. LOTS of sweaters and sweatshirts over my tops and leggings under my pants or skirts. I also have a HUGE marshmellow jacket with a big sherpa hood.

It’s REALLY cold in the 30’s, but I am pretty much cold at any point below 75!!  I know, I shouldn’t live in Chicago.  When it’s REALLY cold I usually have 3 layers on (shirt and skirt or a dress, cardigan or sweater, wool coat) plus boots and tights and a hat, scarf, and gloves.  My first layer shirt or dress are usually short sleeves or no sleeves though.. I don’t like long sleeves or sweaters (cardigans not included) and I don’t like pants :1

What are we doing here?  Just going to and from our car?  Or recreating outdoors?

@ohmybears48:  I’d never last in Chicago. I don’t mind when it’s cold, but your wind would be a killer for me!

Ah! 

Puffy down coat, scarf around my neck and a hat to cover my ears.  I wouldn’t do long johns underneath, just opt for a longer puffy coat.
