Do you wear the same clothing colors year around or wear lighter or different colors/shades in spring and summer?

I usually wear black polo shirts in summer to make my skin tone appear as if its lighter. Where I live, summers are not excessively hot. On the rare occasion there is a heat wave, I might wear a white short sleeve shirt.

For Fall, I usually dress up in shades of Red, brown, grey, and orange. It's my favorite season for dressing up.

For spring, I usually go for fresher colors like deep blue and bright green.

For winter, I wear a white coat as it helps me shine through the dark .

Black polo shirts look great on those who can wear black (I can't or I'd wear it year around). I wear autumn colors but tend to go with lighter shades of them in warm weather and wear ivory/off white only in hot weather.

Yes, I wear the same colors year-round, though in the heat of summer (which is pretty brief) I'm more motivated
to take into account a shirt's color-and if I can, pick one that's lighter rather than darker, so as to stay cooler when out of doors.
But even in summer, there are plenty of chilly nights & that's when I'd wear the darker t-shirt.

It's not a hard-and-fast rule, just a tendency.
For the most part, I address change of seasons with clothing style & layers, rather than modifying my color palette.

Maybe it is a guy thing, but I throw on a shirt and if it black with on a hot summer day....well I'm not walking back in and changing it.

Then again, I haven't been told I'm fashionable or hip lately.

My favorite color is blue, so I do wear blue alot.

95% of my wardrobe I'd navy, camel or white. But in the summer I work mostly outside, I switch to my functional "field" clothes, which are primarily functional. Colors, are still mostly khaki, navy and white with a good amount of green.

I wear all of the clothing I have all year no matter what the color of the clothing or the temperature outside.
