I don't dress up often, but when I do, I like to wear khaki.
Though New York City may not ever see temperatures above 50 degrees before June, that isn't stopping me from shifting my warm weather wardrobe to the front of my closet. If I ever find myself in a situation where I need to add some dapper layers, khaki is my best friend. Cotton blend garments are perfect for the warmer days. They give you all the coverage you need without making you melt in the heat. And if it's still a little chilly but you want to show off the goods, take a cue from your Great Gatsby forefathers and toss your coat over your shoulders for dramatic effect. Better yet, khaki goes with just about anything, and despite being cotton, works for just about every occasion unless you spend your nights at black tie fundraiser events. If you want to beat the heat (whenever it comes), and keep layers on, a khaki blazer is your best alternative.
