It's that time of year again...yes, St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner. That means it's time to raid your closet for anything and everything green - and get ready to be social. That's right, no St. Patty's Day celebration would be complete without getting dressed up and hanging out with your friends.
Whether you are going out or staying in, you'll need to look your best. Don't stress out! Here is your guide to St. Patrick's Day fashion. It won't take much for you to look great from head to toe.
Before you decide what to wear, you need to figure out where you're going! Let's start with something casual but trendy. This kind of look is ideal if you are spending a night in with your significant other or are grabbing dinner at a restaurant.
So, what should you wear? You'll want to choose one green item (yes, just one!) and incorporate it into an everyday outfit. Think a fitted green blazer or a sheer emerald blouse. These pieces can be worn with a good old pair of skinny jeans. In terms of accessories, try adding an extra pop of green with a bracelet or dangly earring. These are subtle ways to embrace the holiday.
If you plan to embrace St. Patrick's Day all day long, you'll want to think about some work and school appropriate options as well. That means super casual pieces that totally scream shamrock!
Start raiding your wardrobe for casual pieces like a green shrug, a knitted sweater, or even a pleated knee-length skirt. You can wear just one or double them up to really show off your St. Patrick's Day spirit. It's totally up to you how far you take it. The key is to make sure that you are comfortable enough to get through your daily activities.
Now, for the fun stuff: your party look! This look is perfect if you are heading out to a bar or club to dance the night away. There are two ways you can go with the this kind of look. You can either slip on a sexy emerald dress with some rouching along the side or opt for something super fun and novelty.
Know those "Kiss Me I'm Irish" shirts? Grab them! Toss on a green feather boa, some shamrock shaped sunglasses, and a few green beaded necklaces. It's impossible to go too far with it! If you choose to go novelty, it's all about having fun. And don't worry about feeling foolish - everyone else you meet will be dressed the same way.
This St. Patrick's Day, celebrate right by going green with your fashion. There are so many ways to do it! Just think about where you're going and dress the part. You'll look great, however you're celebrating this year.
