Rich and confident types will go for the full blast of head-to-toe fuschia, but you don't have to join them: for less than pounds 15, a bright lipstick or nail varnish will do the trick. Spend a little more - on sequinned sandals, a skirt or a lace-edged vest - and an otherwise sober wardrobe will get an instant injection of spring fever. In other words: think pink
