This illustration is fabulous!!! Kudos to @mdf. I vote for #6. The colors have similar saturation and are close to opposite on the color wheel. They are Flylow bibs correct? That means the fabric will be similar to the jacket in the realms other than color. That’s a nice aesthetic. I have one season in non-insulated Flylow Foxy bibs and have been pleasantly shocked at how warm they are. I hate being cold, and they have been great with a single base layer. For days under 15F I add insulated Marmot knickers.
The jacket is blue-green and muted. Across from blue-green on the color wheel is red-orange. If you mute red-orange, you'll be in a salmon color.
Low-key ... you could always go with something in a gray or taupe.
Blue-green is an ocean/beach color. Colors you would find in nature in that environment would work ... colors of sand, driftwood, shells.
Triadic match…great to have a word for the concept! Now I must investigate whether my lapis jacket and taffy bibs are a triadic match, explaining why I like them together.The yellows/mustard are what's called a triadic match - not complementary but equally spaced around the wheel.
