It doesn't get really cold, but I do like to wear boots in wintertime just to have a change from the eternal flipflops...you will probably wear full length jeans etc in winter, and longsleeve tops...no need for proper coats though.
You do get proper winter fashion in the shops and some people (women) do actually wear wintery clothes...

Remember to keep a coat and jumper for when you RETURN to the UK. Nothing worse than turning up in the UK in winter without warm clothes!

that reminds me of parts of spain... it's about 25 there in the winter and yet they're all wrapped up because it's "supposed" to be winter...
