If you want to wear what you consider to be Spring colors into Fallish weather, I think you can do so. You might use darker colored shoes and belt, to add some late season accents. Or wear with a darker jacket, if these things are normally what you wear.

You know, most people don’t notice stuff like this. I doubt you’d be considered odd by wearing brighter colors. If you were to wear seersucker, then yes, that might seem ofd.But what you describe sounds fine to me.

I know back in Fall/Winter 2017, a shade of pale pink known as Ballet Slipper was considered trendy for womenswear, so colors are becoming less confined to particular seasons. Menswear has been slower to adapt, but I wouldn't have any issue with wearing spring colors in fall/winter. If you are into preppy styles, the spring/summer styles are usually the most popular for most of those brands.

I wear my pink spring/summer shirts year-round as well and even have a few pink fleeces and a pink hoodie for the colder days (and pair them with my pink spring/summer polos), but unfortunately, when it comes to menswear fashion companies usually don't give us as many color choices as they do for womenswear for fall/winter collections; they usually prefer to stick to what are traditionally considered fall/winter colors for their men's clothes, since apparently not a lot of men are comfortable wearing clothes for colder weather in typical spring/summer colors such as pink.

^^^This^^^ I live in SW Florida, we dress the same way pretty much all year except for maybe 10 days all year. Some days we actually get to put on a sweater and boots that we hardly ever get to wear.

Here in Arizona, while the department stores do sell fall/winter clothes, the exact selection tends to vary year by year. Rarely we will get the heavy coats; we will often get many more lightweight clothes in fall colors and sometimes some pullover fleeces or turtlenecks. For heavy coats you might have to go to a store like REI.

Wow, newsflash. I did not know seasonal colors were a thing anymore!

Sort of like "no white after Labor Day?"

Man, am I out of touch! If it isn't unflattering, I'll wear it. If it's comfortable...

In womenswear colors what have traditionally been confined to specific seasons seems to be going by the wayside. However, menswear has been slower to adapt, especially when it comes to what have traditionally been considered spring/summer colors in fall/winter collections, probably due to a lot of men being uncomfortable wearing clothes for colder weather in colors such as pink; most men prefer their winter clothes to be in dark or neutral colors.

Also, when it comes to most menswear brands, most of them tend to dominate in fall/winter. The exceptions tend to be in the preppy, golf, and swimwear categories, which are well known for their bright colors and pastels typically associated with spring/summer.
