Maybe not for some, but for myself, 40s-60s are very cold. I always thought Arizona was warm year around. Guess not. The entire northern hemisphere is starting to get too cold for me. I have lived in places from -25 (I realize for some that's probably tropical) to 120 F. Can't survive very well on either one. Now I have run out of hope and options for living anywhere without either freezing my bones to brittle or burning them to a crisp.

It's cold until you allow yourself to acclimate. Our bodies are quite adaptive.

My body has not acclimated in some 60 years and unfortunately, doubtful that it will ever adapt. Anything below 65 F is cold to my skin and will be cold in my opinion for as long as I live. Anything above 85 F is hot and will always be hot to me. I'm never comfortable with anything unless it's somewhere between the high 60s to low 80s. I begin to shiver in the low 60s and start sweating tremendously at the mid 80s. That's the sad truth.

Fleece leggings are the winter staple you need in your life. You can also wear a lined pant or jeans on the bottom with thermals under.

Jeans are usually made of cotton which isn't a warm fiber at all. Something wool would be much warmer. Also, stay away from synthetic materials like polyester, there's no warmth in that.



Wool socks? Warm toes might help?

Check out silk long underwear. I hear they do the job. Theyre thin but still keep you warm. Not for me though. Im hot. I would love 50 and 60 degree weather.

How about tights, (not pantyhose) under your pants? I wore a pair for the first time in years Christmas Eve and they certainly were warm especially considering our temperature here in Florida that night was around 70 and more humid than usual for late December.

When it's cold here, which is rarely, I wear leggings as the tight material around my legs keep me warm.

I love Uniqlo Heattech leggings. They are available in different levels (regular and extra warm) and are very thin. FWIW, I wore heattech all the time when I lived in Japan and there was no central heat. They were a lifesaver. I wear them as either a tights alternative or under thin pants if it is really cold. They don’t have a store in Arizona, but you can order online. Look at the sizing, because the sizes do run a bit small. The leggings are stretchy though and last forever.
