It depends on two things: How cold is it? (For me, it's not actually "cold" until it gets below 0F.) And: What are you doing outside?

But regardless of all that, rule number one is no cotton anywhere near the skin--or anywhere if it's likely to get wet.

If' you're working on (or with) tractors, some nice insulated coveralls work well--layer underneath as appropriate. (I'll admit my insulated coveralls are cotton, but if I'm wearing them, it's cold enough that I'm not getting wet from the outside, and I'm probably just wrenching or plowing, so I'm not generating a lot of sweat on the inside.)

If you're doing outdoor activities (snowshoeing, skiing), then layers are key. Some microfiber underneath, polar fleece above, and some Goretex (or similar) on top. Add in a wool sweater if you like. If you're working hard, the Goretex layer probably comes off pretty quick. (They say to dress for 15 minutes down the trail, not how you feel at the parking lot.)

But for just being outside without sweating (like walking the dog, or just going to work), my absolute favorite is a thick down coat. With that, the whole layering thing is irrelevant--I can (and do) wear it in -40 with just a T-shirt underneath it and not be cold. (At least not in the areas covered by the coat.) But as soon as I start exerting myself, it's too much, and the sweat starts accumulating...
