People in Detroit are pretty open to most styles of dress even upscale formal wear. Fleece and leather jackets are also popular. Your dress style will depend on your personal taste.

All in all, if you are into hip-hop gear, you will find more people wearing it during the summer season but other times of the year it's quite popular too.

The seasons are no deterrent to the annual Parade of Nations in the Motor City. If cultural/ethnic clothing is your thing, you will have opportunity year-round to wear traditional clothing.
