You should have no problem with shorts and T-shirts in most places. (Some temples/wats may restrict you.)

However, I would bring a long sleeve shirt with you that you can use for a jacket.

When the A/C is too cold on the bus or train or when you are in cooler windy areas you will be glad you have the long sleeves.

I always bring a pair of light weight long pants with me, but that's my quirk.

I'll be in those places around the same time. planning on taking a couple of pairs of zipoffs, some short sleeved shirts and a long sleeved linen one. maybe a light fleece in case it's cold in the evening.
Can't wait!

You should be prepared for cold weather in Northern Vietnam in Jan/Feb. Night temperatures can drop to around 4 degrees c. If you decide to head up into the hills around Sapa then definately make sure you take something warm to wear.
