If you’re more of a shrinking violet, you will take solace in the fact that the ‘go big or go home’ rule doesn’t have to apply here. The red-yellow-green combination can look just as powerful in more muted versions of these shades – as long as one of the three packs a saturated punch. Consider a mustard yellow coat, for instance, with a pair of forest green cords and a poppy-red handbag. Or how about a ‘Bottega green’ shirt with a pair of amber earrings and red lipstick?

If you find bold shades don’t suit your skin tone, keep them away from your face and limit them to trousers, bags and shoes. Yellow can be a particularly challenging hue to carry off, but on the other hand, there is a shade of green to suit almost everyone – more than enough reason to give the look a go.
