What's the Dress Style Like in Detroit?

You'd have to be on another planet if you haven't heard about the cold Detroit winters. It goes without saying a heavy winter coat, gloves, hat, scarf, boots, is necessary. Layering is also fine. 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. Detroiters basically wear what they want. In some cases, it's more to do with economics more so than individual style.

If you are into the sports there's plenty of opportunity to show-off your sporting style. With teams like the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Pistons sports gear is easily accessible if that's your thing. There's even special gear like heavy winter coats and hoodies with team logos sure to keep you warm. Fleece jackets are quite popular as well. Team jerseys are popular in any season.

Sweater Season

March is an ambiguous time in Detroit. Winter is almost gone but it's not quite spring either. Temperatures can reach the 60s one day and drop down to the 40s or 30s the next day. Unfortunately, these fluctuating moods of mother nature are a challenge if you want to stay stylish. The way to remain fashionable in Detroit during this period is with stylish sweaters. Take your pick of patterns, cuts, colors, textures with a nice scarf and you're good to go.

It's impossible to mention Detroit and style without referencing rap. The song '8 Mile' sort-of put Detroit on the map in the rap genre. If you are into this type of clothing, you'll fit right in. This section of Detroit is on the Northern border and kind of a cultural boundary but that's about it. 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. Casual or business-casual dress is not uncommon. If you prefer more formal wear, there are plenty of opportunities, regardless of the season, to wear your best as there is lots to do in Detroit with plenty of formal events to go to.

Men in Detroit are fond of suits and ties a nice dress shirt and shoes. Women wear pants and pant suits or nice dresses, skirt and top, and heeled shoes. It's up to you what you want to wear, the city of Detroit can handle anybody's style!
