OTOH, humidity doesn't make a difference when dressing properly, like for cyclists who bike in cold winter weather (they wear layers of only wool and synthetic clothing) but most people don't have the time to dress up like that every day, even in cold climates...
Yeah I guess, it depends wind, sun, and others.

30F (-1C) -> suit and autumn jacket with scarf or regular clothes and winter jacket with scarf


20F (-7C) -> suit or regular clothes, winter jacket, scarf, gloves


10F (-12C) -> winter jacket, scarf, cap, gloves


0F (-18C) -> same as above, but an extra hoody, cardigan or a long sleeved undershirt. Dunno what it is officially English. A thin shirt you put undermost and that keeps you warm.
Like this: Craft Zero Extreme Ws Longsleeve. Clothes man Underwear, Bikeinn.com, buy, offers, bike

-20F (-29C) -> spacesuit


-40F (also -40C!) -> spacesuit

Ok so here we go:

30c + - hardly anything. A light t-shirt and shorts.
25c-30c = T-Shirt and Shorts.
20c- 25c = T-shirt and Shorts.
15- 20c = Jeans/long shorts and a top.
10-15c = Jeans and a top.
5-10c = Jeans, coat and top.
0-5c = Jeans, top, coat and scarf.
below 0c = heavy top, heavy jeans, heavy coat and scarf with gloves.

To be honest it doesn't really change that much, with me I will usually change my clothing in 10c intervals rather than 5c intervals.

10F / -12C - same as the first two (although I'd be super uncomfortable)

0F / -18C - everything I own

-20F / -29C - a climate controlled bubble

-40F / -40C - fire

Luckily I've only experienced the first two, but I find both uncomfortable.

I tolerate the cold very well....not so much the heat.

But as some others have stated....what you wear so depends on how long you will be outside. If I am getting into my car in the garage and driving to work...walking the 30 second walk to work's door and then back and going home again into my garage and then in the house, then what I would wear at cold temperatures will vary greatly from if I was going out for an hour to go sledding. Or not to mention if it was a clear 10 degree day and light winds versus a cloudy 10 degree day with 25 mph winds. Both would require greatly different clothing options.

But say use a day I will be going grocery shopping. That will require a bit more time outside....coming out as have to push the cart to the car...unload....bring cart make to cart corral, then back to car. Say light but noticeable wind....

30F degree day -- pants/ t-shirt/light jacket/no gloves/no hat

20F degree day -- pants/t-shirt/medium weight coat/no gloves/no hat

10F degree day -- pants/t-shirt/medium-heavy coat/no gloves/no hat

0F degree day -- heavy coat/gloves/hat and same for temps below zero, but just run faster. I have never worn thermal underwear ever...even in sledding. usually though when sledding wear a snow bib with jeans underneath and a wet proof coat on top, one good pair of socks and boots.

I rarely ever wear sweater or long sleeve shirt unless out snow blowing, shoveling, or sledding because inside temp at home and at work especially are too warm for me in anything but a t-shirt/polo.

80F / 27C - t-shirt, shorts

70F / 21C - t-shirt, shorts or jeans
