Menswear designers just may have the Las Vegas man about town in mind this season: Bright, colorful suits ruled the runways of designers from Givenchy to Zegna. But will lime green really get you noticed at Tao? Try Bottega Veneta’s three-button neoprene option. For a slightly more conservative look, Gucci and Lanvin both offer vibrant shades of deep purple. Style the trend with bright shirts and ties, or tone down with neutrals. The ways of making bright suits formal enough for work yet playful enough for a night out are endless. “Color loves color for the coming season,” says Ken Dowling, fashion director at Neiman Marcus. “Contrasting color makes a bold statement. A yellow shirt, open at the collar, says you are not a wallflower!” 3-button jacket ($1,895), microoxford shirt ($795), knit tie ($265), Ports 1961. Saks Fifth Avenue, Fashion Show, 702-733-8800
