Rick Steve's recommends wearing neutral colors. As such, I've opted to bring a lot of blacks and greys on my trip this winter. However, my rain jacket is a BRIGHT green -- it's brighter than the circle of the Travel Answers logo, except a bit more yellow. But it's a quality rain jacket and I don't want to spend a few hundred dollars just to get one that's black. However, I really don't want to stand out as traveling in a foreign country makes me feel self conscious already.
So my question is, do Europeans wear bright colors? If they do, is it only during warmer seasons?
Update: Some of the countries I will be traveling to during November/December include France, Italy, and Germany. I will mostly be in cities. (As a side note, I also don't want to stand out so as to avoid drawing attention of pick pocketers.)
