Light-colored suits such as beige are acceptable only in the summer for daytime wear. These rules are somewhat dated, for surem as they are securely rooted in 19th century fashion. Many people will not notice if you follow them or not but if you do, you will never feel out-of-place and those who do notice will appreciate your efforts.
Please inform Michael Bloomberg, Barack Obama, and Warren Buffett among others re: this blue rule.
Barack Obama also wore a white tie with a dinner jacket to his inaugural ball, also a HUGE fashion faux pas.
I'm also pretty sure that Warren Buffet hasn't bought a new suit since about 1968. Michael Bloomburg is just too damned rich for fashion rules. Duh...
