Fashion or weather appropriate

I'm going to ask this question because it's below freezing here in Wisconsin yet I still see people, mainly children, wearing shorts and light jackets because they feel it's more stylish. Personally, if it's cold out, I wear layers. I don't care what it looks like. And, my daughter will not be out in shorts when it's 20 degrees outside (like a child I saw walking to school today).

Feel sorry for the poor child and take care of yours. I taught Kdg. -- 1st the last 4 years in southern Tennessee. It doesn't get cold there like it does in Wisconsin or where I am now in Iowa, but it still gets down to freezing. I felt so bad when I had children coming in all winter without coats, wearing shorts and short sleeves, and sitting around shivering all day. I went so far as to buy some warmer clothes for some of the kids.
