My new dresscode for these 17C autumn days is a hoodie with sleeves rolled-up and shorts. Excellent clothing when going to buy groceries. Ok, 20C now, but before.

above 25c: shorts (or thin chino / cargo type pants if not socially possible) and short sleeves

20-25: pants / jeans and short sleeves
15-20: jeans, long sleeve shirt or hoodie and a cotton jacket if there is wind or clouds
10-15: jeans, tshirt, long sleeve shirt, hoodie and cotton jacket
5-10: jeans, tshirt, long sleeve shirt, hoodie and soft shell jacket.
below 5: jeans, tshirt, long sleeve shirt, hoodie / pile, heavy winter jacket or long coat / parka

If it gets below 0 and that my jeans are too thin I can wear long johns underneath.

if it's very humid or I have to stay out for a long time / indoors without heating (common here in many social centers in winter - this is SOUTHERN Europe after all) I tend to use the parka / coat at 10c already, or replace the regular hoodie by a pile fleece If I don't feel like wearing something too heavy / if I plan on riding the bike for more than 5 km and thus sweat (it's almost always humid here in winter).

Also, wearing hemp tshirts or corduroy button-up shirts in winter helps you staying warm in cold / wet conditions without having to use the heavy coat.

Many people wear down jackets here but I find them too bulky and ugly.


In Canada with -20c I would always wear jeans / tshirt / long sleeve shirt / pile / quilted wool coat and feel perfectly fine though. When you get used to being cold every day it's better than occasional cold snaps. Just don't forget beanie, scarf and gloves.

For shoes, I mostly wear "approach" type shoes as sneakers and I have a pair or black ankle boots/shoes made of leather that I wear from october to april. If it snows I use the caterpillars or hiking boots.

In the summer I either wear chucks / other canva sneakers or chaco sandals if it gets really hot.

This will vary a bit depending on exact conditions (sunshine, wind, rain, etc) and how active I am, but overall this is about how I dress at different temperatures...

Above 30C - shorts and t-shirts
20C to 30C - jeans and t-shirts (if cloudy and/or significantly windy, especially with low humidity, I often wear light long-sleeve shirts in the low 20s)
15C to 20C - jeans and a long-sleeve shirt (if sunny, windless, and I'm being active outside I may wear t-shirts in the upper teens)
10C to 15C - jeans and a sweater
0C to 10C - jeans, peacoat, hat, and gloves
-10C to 0C - jeans, winter coat, hat, gloves
Below -10C - snowpants, winter coat, hat, gloves, face covering

In T-shirt and shorts 55F and higher

In T-shirt and pants (no coat) 32F to 55F

In T-shirt, pants, and light jacket 0F to 32F

In T-shirt, pants, medium jacket below 0F

If snowblowing or out sledding, then dress a lot warmer with two layers of shirts, medium coat, hat, gloves.

For just my region, I basically wear the same thing year round -Shorts , t-shirt, and fleece top.

Winter days are usually warm enough for the fleece top to come off, and summer evenings often cool enough to put the fleece top on.

I take avantage of any spell of nasty weather during winter, to dress smartly and go to town -where I get drunk, and talk weather to strangers.
