If the weather is really cold, you also want to have a wicking base layer under your bike clothing. At the very least, you need warm tights, a warm long-sleeve jersey and a waterproof cycling jacket and pants. For severe cold, consider a face mask or a helmet that covers more of your head.

A windbreaker jacket you can easily stow away should offer more protection than a gilet, be lightweight and (hopefully) breathable enough for when effort levels increase and the body starts to get warm.
When should I wear a cycling gilet?
Gilets are invaluable on cold rides where you’re already wearing several layers, and have reached the point where another set of sleeves is going to leave you bulked out and restricted. Most gilets are thin and merely for wind protection, though – there’s a lot less choice if you want proper insulation as well.
What kind of bike should I wear for 50 degree weather?
50 Degrees (10C): Tights or leg warmers; heavy long-sleeve jersey with sleeveless or short-sleeve wicking undershirt; or lightweight long-sleeve jersey with long-sleeve undershirt.
