Jeans or dress and tights. My house is 23 degrees and I'm under duvet in bed!

Definitely dresses! It was only 17 here today and we had the paddling pool out blush

You'll be cold in a sundress at 21 degrees, unless you can wear tights.

I'd go for jeans.

21 degrees is lovely and warm! I'd take a cardie or light jacket to go over my sun dress in case of breezes though.

I'd want a fleece available for 21 degrees, depends on the wind really tho'.

Such a difficult temperature !!! I think it's hard ( don't want to look ridiculous in a dress sad!!!! Thank u everyone !!

Am amazed at the comments about 21 degrees being cold and needing tights/fleece shock

It was about 16 degrees here a couple of weeks ago and I was in a t-shirt, cropped jeans and flip flops.

I would say that 21 degrees is easily warm enough for a sundress smile

21 degrees is jeans and boots weather! I have the aircon set at 25 currently :-) mind you it is 30 outside (at 5am).

I'm in Scotland ... 21 degrees is bikini weather!! grin

I would say yes to sundress, but you might need a cardi if you are going great to be in the shade.

I was in shorts and flip flops today.

BillyBanter Sun 04-May-14 22:13:24

Depends how warm you are used to, as evidenced by the replies.

meditrina Sun 04-May-14 22:13:53

Hot starts at 20 degrees C!

foodtech Sun 04-May-14 22:14:00

Yip scotland and 21 is the warmest it gets. I sunbathe in that heat.

Artandco Sun 04-May-14 22:15:10

Haha it must have been some of you I saw today on london tubes in flip flops!

Some of you should never move to Ireland! When it gets to 21 degrees here we start speculating about the possibility of a heat wave. grin

mizu Sun 04-May-14 22:16:23

Yes, depends how much you feel the cold - and if it is windy. Wear a sundress but have a thick cardi too!

littlesupersparks Sun 04-May-14 22:16:36

Dresses with leggings and cardies/fleeces for wind. Over 20 is shorts and t shirt weather for me!

Alfiedoggy Sun 04-May-14 22:20:15

Ok I'm thinking dress with cardi ?? smile)

spookyskeleton Sun 04-May-14 22:22:35

I wonder if those of us that think it is sundress weather live in the north as 21 degrees is a heatwave up here wink

AndreasVesalius Sun 04-May-14 22:28:38

This makes me think of the time we went on a school trip to London in March. We were all sat outside the cafe drinking iced drinks wearing t-shirts whilst the Londoners were hurrying past in scarves and gloves.

21 degrees is most definitely sundress weather in the North West.

waterlego Sun 04-May-14 22:29:42

Yes, same here- over 20 and I'm in shorts and vest tops/sundresses. And I wear my Birkies from March to October. Actually, 20 is my ideal temp. I live on the South Coast, so it's not that I've never experienced proper hot weather.

steff13 Sun 04-May-14 22:30:11

21*F, you would be unreasonable. 21*C, I'd wear a dress with a cardigan over it. 71* F here today (about 22* C) and I wore a short-sleeved dress. It would have been too chilly for sleeveless dress.

Jollyphonics Sun 04-May-14 22:30:32

Depends what you'll be doing. Sitting still for a while and I reckon you might get chilly. Walking around you'll be fine in a dress.
