Tropical Blue  

The Tropical Blue uniform can be worn year around to flotilla and division meetings. It is also worn to public events, public education classes, and occasions where suit and tie are not necessary yet where the ODU is too informal. It is also worn at district functions year-round. It’s a uniform that sees a lot of use and is typically one of the first uniforms an Auxiliarist should purchase (the other is the ODU).
