It really depends on the hunt. For upland most any clothes work but I try to avoid things that will be more prone to pick up burrs and stickers. I prefer taller boots to help keep stuff out of my shoes but I'm going to try gators this year. I've hunted upland from opening day in pants and a t shirt with a hunting vest and cap to multiple layers, carhart, and stocking cap. For squirrel and rabbit I've just tried to be comfortable and concealed, I have a camo compression shirt that I wear and like that. For ducks I am usually out in late season and it's cold and windy and rainy. I wear many layers and try to have wool in most of them. Most hunting I do is when it's cold so that usually means doing my best to stay warm and dry. Layers are great because you can shed or open up if you're getting to warm walking hills. I especially like a thick wool scarf I have because I can feel much warmer or cooler by taking it off or wrapping it up higher. The hunting clothes I've spent the most on are better boots and a pair of waders. Everything else is just my normal wardrobe with a small number (2) in camo.

Listen to NAHDOG. He is correct.
Another thing I have done is to always have a rain jacket handy. It cuts down on heat lose from wind. I layer under that. I also use a lot of fleece which is forgiving when it comes to sweat. Avoid cotton next to your skin. It dries out very slowly!!

Layers (lots)! I often have 3-5 layers on or at least available. I use a backpack and carry my extras there.
Wool Socks + liners
Fleece layers also.
I often use black electrician tape around my bottom pant legs so twigs and stuff do not get into them. Can also use that to cover your muzzle to keep rain and junk out of that also.

Always remember what's important in your life!

There were things he could do without declared Reed. "Steaks that don't bleed. Coffee with cream. Guys who don't swear. Boots that leak. Wild animals in cages. Bears trained to do tricks. Cheese that has no smell." Jay Reed
