I don't consider anything strctly summer attire except maybe a bathing suit. When it gets cold I just add layers over the summer stuff. It's a great use for things which don't look real good so I save them. Three layers of cotton shirts under a thermal top isn't a heavy layer, but seals up a lot of air leaks in jackets and sweaters.

I wear my boots in the yard all year round. No telling what critters are waiting to climb up your leg or chomp down on your foot in the 'grass' here, which is on part grass and many parts other stuff.

America is a continent. On the East coast where we do have snow and sub freezing temperatures I don;t wear summer clothes in winter. But if I vacation in the Carribeean, Australia or South America in winter I do. I have to. This doesn't happen very often though.

I used to wear a lot of "all-season" clothes to work, with maybe a few tops that I only wore in summer. But now it's so cold at my new place, I'm in turtlenecks and fleeces all day, and even that's not enough! (it's a more casual office, too).

But yeah, I'm looking out the window at the snow melting, trying to figure out what I'll be wearing on Sunday when it goes up to 70!

Summer clothing in summer. Winter clothing in winter. If it gets up in the 50s or 60s this weekend I'll drop the cords and wear jeans. Maybe wear my winter jacket unzipped. Winter is much too freezing for summer clothing.

You don't live too far away from my place. I would just wear a T shirt and jeans. However, since its supposed to be raining, I will also lug a poncho along with me .

What a ridiculous question, considering the wide range of climate within the U.S. alone ...

Which is why I want to know how often people over the world wear summer clothes in winter.

At home or outside?

Outside very rarely in winter, for it should be at least above 12°C/54°F but this happens rarely maybe two or three times per decade. Last time i was outside for longer in a T-shirt was in February 2002 when we had a high of 15°C/60°F.

But here in my appartment almost everyday, i'm sitting in a T-shirt here right now and i don't even have the heating on atm.
