Some people say they feel cold during the winter months, which means putting on a sweater.
Personally I've never been *that* cold. I'm in shorts year round and winter means throwing on a shawl or pashmina when we go out as we'll dine al fresco in most places. DH always changes into shorts/t-shirts after coming home from work and there's possibly one week out of the year when he'll put on trousers instead of his shorts.
Some villas do feel colder than others, which probably has a lot to do with how large the rooms are and if you have grand two story rooms, echoing foyers or acres of marble flooring. Our villa is average sized and compactly organized and we've never been cold in it, not once.
I can confidently say I've never seen a portable radiator in anyone's apartment or villa in Dubai.
The only time I've ever worn a jumper in Dubai is when we're camping out in the desert or the mountains. It does get quite cold out there at night during the winter months.
