Catch a Tan
It's not often that men's clothing makes news for a day, but you may recall what happened one warm day when former President Obama wore a tan suit to a press conference. That's right, DC is so dull and predictable that half the country stopped what it was doing and rushed on social media to castigate the Commander in Chief for his supposed sartorial faux pas. What's the moral of the story? That tan is just fine for business, and everyone's a critic.
||Unlike, say, olive, tan is about as neutral as it gets, so feel free to accessorize with any color you like, such as purple.
