Dealing with Varying Temperatures and Weather

Perhaps you’ve already experienced all these temperatures. Some people, however, aren’t really sure how cold or hot these temperatures might feel, especially when it comes to traveling. As a result, they either overpack or don’t pack enough. Reaching into your refrigerator, for example, is not the same as spending an entire day in 40 degree weather. As a general rule of thumb, though, knowing the temperature is a good place to start when selecting an outfit. 

So, to do this, you’re going to need a good thermometer or a weather station for your home. If you’re on the go, then a weather wrist watch might be ideal. Other options, like phone apps and the news, generally don’t give you the most accurate weather information. They’re good for basic forecasts, but don’t provide highly localized information like the other devices do, which can also provide you with humidity and heat index data. Heat index is how a certain temperature feels at a given humidity level. Windchill will also influence how the temperature feels. 

Once you know the what weather conditions are, you need to be prepared for them to fluctuate depending on the season and time of day. All factors, including temperature, humidity, windchill, and sunlight, need to be taken into consideration. Although you don’t have control over the weather, you do have control over what to wear; so, just be prepared and everything will work out in your favor – rain 🌧 or shine 🌞!

What to Wear in 30-degree weather

With temperatures this low, you need a thick sweater and a winter coat. Here are some nice choices:

  • For your feet, wear boots with an insulator on the inside. This type of footwear comes in different styles, colors, and designs. For instance, you can have the mid-calf pair of boots or ankle boots for better protection from extreme cold.

What to Wear in 40-Degree Weather

Even though 40 degrees is a little warmer than 30, sweaters are still your best option. You can choose sweaters that are slightly less heavy, though. You’ll want to wear long pants too; jeans, leggings or anything that covers your entire legs. If you want to wear a skirt, then you definitely should wear leggings too. Boots are another option to keep you warm when wearing a skirt in 40 degree weather. Here are a few ideas for tops. The one on the right also serves as a jacket. 

Turtlenecks are super popular during this time of year. They hold in the warmth around your neck, keeping you nice and cozy. If you feel cold, however, wear winter clothes in layers. You can also wear a long-sleeved shirt, blazer, and a jacket to top it off.

In terms of fabric, the best choice for 40-degree weather is acrylic because it will keep you well-insulated. If you’re planning to be active, like going on a hike with friends, you may want to avoid wearing a heavy coat. You may find that the body heat you generate from being active is enough to keep you warm. In these situations, gloves and hats are a good choice because you can remove them if need be.

What to Wear in 50-Degree Weather

Once we hit 50 degree weather, it means that Spring is just around the corner. When that happens, you can let go of your heavy coats, gloves, hats and boots and start changing it up a bit. Change is fun! To start, choose a nice top that will breathe, but still keep you somewhat warm. Quilted vests are also a popular choice for 50 degree weather. Check out some of these:

One special factor to consider when deciding what to wear during this season is that it can switch from sunny or rainy rather abruptly. Therefore, you should update your wardrobe with some sort of water resistant or waterproof jacket and bring it with you. Alternatively, you can bring an umbrella. 

As for your outfit, jeans with a long sleeve shirt is a good place to start, but make sure to bring a cardigan, blazer or vest if you plan on being out at night. The temperature may drop suddenly, which can affect your immune system and compromise your health. It’s not time for shorts and t-shirts just yet, but fear not! The warm weather is just around the corner!

What to Wear in 60-Degree Weather

When deciding what to wear in 60-degree weather, there are many ways you can go. If you’re feeling upbeat and excited because it’s warming up, you may feel comfortable in just shorts and a t-shirt. If it’s cloudy or you’re tired, wearing long sleeves may be the best choice. It’s a good idea to step outside to see how the air makes you feel before choosing your outfit for the day. Your mood matters! Cardigans are a perfect choice for 60-degree weather because you can remove them if you feel too warm.

Keep in mind, too, that conditions are still unpredictable during this time of year, so it’s a good idea to bring a light raincoat or an umbrella, especially if there’s a chance of rain in the forecast.

What to Wear in 70-Degree Weather

This is summer weather – no need to wear layers of thick fabric. Instead, find something that will keep you fresh. It can get humid at this time of the year too, which will make you feel even hotter. Your clothes need to breathe, so the following options might be just right for you:

You can also beat the heat by wearing light dresses. However, if you’re planning to stay outside into the evening, don’t forget to bring a light jacket since temperatures at night can still drop.

What to Wear in 80-Degree Weather

Temperatures from 80 degrees upwards can be uncomfortable if you’re not used to them. You need to adjust your wardrobe and wear airy clothes. Avoid wearing tight garments as they may lead to skin irritation from friction and heat. You’ll find some nice tops for 80-degree weather here:

You should choose light-colored dresses since darker colors tend to attract more heat from the sun. Cotton offers the most breathability in hot weather. When it’s in the high 80’s or 90’s, it is sometimes helpful to avoid going outside altogether if you can. Finally, remember to always drink plenty of water for optimal hydration! Your body will lose water faster than usual through perspiration. 

Bottom Line

You can never really be sure of the weather. Seasonal changes can bring discomfort, so the best way to stay comfortable is to be prepared and know what clothes to wear. We hope this article was useful for you and wish you the best in staying warm in the cold and staying cool in the heat!

  1. also: if the temp for the day is going to be a range, like 40 to 60, wear 50 degree weather because thats the median or something math like that

  2. It only gives you shoes you should include more it’s 65 degrees where I’m at right now but I don’t know what to wear. Capris, shorts, or jeans.

  3. Tomorrow I’m going to a place wear it will be a high of 40 degrees, and a low of 25 degrees, but the forecast also says it will be sunny, and 67% humidity. I am stuck on what I should wear.

  4. Tomorrow it’s going to be high of 62 and low of 49 what should I wear? shorts? or Jeans with a light top or leggings?

  5. is it smart to wear a long sleeve crop top and short shorts in 80 degrees??? its a crop top and short shorts but its a long sleeve so???? Is it smart??

  6. It’s 63 degrees here and the weather forcast says that it feels like 30 degrees so I don’t know what to wear. Should I wear clothes that fits the weather (63 degrees) or wear something in the 30 degress? This is so confusing and I don’t want to freeze.

  7. I don’t know what to wear! I mean it’s going to be like 66 but the low is like 40! I really want to wear shorts, but I’m just not sure. What should I wear???

  8. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I live in Massachusetts in the Berkshires where the weather changes every second of every day LOL, it starts off in the 20s first thing in the morning and then around 8 o’clock it goes into the 30s, it stays around the 30s until about noon time and then it gets up to the 40s and most days right now it stays there, but this past week and last week it has gone from being 20° first thing in the morning to 60° in the afternoon and then back down to the 20s at night time, today is the same exact thing except it started off in the 30s and the temperature rose into the 40s pretty quickly but then right now it’s leveled at 61° and according to the weather it’s going to go to 71° around 4 o’clock and then it’s going to spiral back down into the 20s tonight! So basically I start off with long pants sweater a jacket and hat if I happen to go outside early in the morning and then by the afternoon I’m taking the head off and the jacket off and only wearing my jeans and a sweater LOL with summer coming the temperatures are just as weird where it’ll start off in the morning in the 50s jump in to the 60s by 10 and then it’s 80° by noon time and it’ll stay in the 80s for the rest of the day and then it’ll only dropped like 20° for night time LOL and that’ll go on for weeks at a time and then all of a sudden one week will get to where it’s only 60° or high 50s with nothing but rain LOL so if I ever go camping or go away for the weekend I literally pack for every temperature that I could Possibly think of and then it’ll end up to where I didn’t need half of what I packed LOL but I will be prepared ROFL

    • Wow I would hate that I live in Bloomsburg pa and I love how it stays warm in the summer and cold in the winter and in the middle of both in the spring well everyone is different

  9. Truly not a recipe for southern women. 90 is hot. 70s is still chilly to us. I had a niece visit from Michigan. She was burning up at 50/and the rest of us had on sweaters, I guess it’s all in what you’re used too.

  10. Tomorrow, I have to go to in-person school for the first time this school year and it’s like 75 degrees tomorrow. I had no idea what to wear and I still don’t but thanks for giving me a shortcut 🙂
