Traffic lights might be a bit of a tenuous connection for a set of dress picks, but what we really want to emphasise with these Summery shopping finds in red, amber and green is that this is the perfect time to try out some colours you might never normally wear.

Enjoy the sunshine while it's still around (sporadically) and show some leg in a bold coloured Summer dress. Red works really well with a variety of skintones but is particularly good on paler skins and blondes for a really bold contrast. Orange works amazingly with a tan, and with dark brown or black hair, while green looks good on everyone but can be particularly striking on redheads or those with very dark skin.

Choose your favourite from our finds below. We've combined some looks from the high street with the odd discounted designer buy, so none of these will break the bank completely. All the images are clickable to shop, or you can find the links below each image.
