Graphic t-shirts, big hats and shot glass necklaces are standard attire for drinking holidays. Everyone looks like they got dressed in the dark on St. Patrick’s Day… which is fine if you are attending a themed party, but it looks silly when it’s worn all day. These three looks rock St. Patty’s Day greens without making you look like a leprechaun.
What to Wear to Work
Unfortunately for us worker bees, St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Monday this year. The tacky “kiss me I’m Irish” t-shirt isn’t appropriate office attire, but that doesn’t mean you need to go home and change before you meet up with your friends. The playful pattern in this long sleeve crepe shift dress by Wayf has enough green to ward off pinches from the office prankster. Accessorize the dress with these gold colored minimalist linear drop earrings from Forever 21 for a classy, yet playful look.
Cute and Casual
No one will take you seriously if you’re running around town dressed like a leprechaun. Whether you’re in for a day of lectures or chauffeuring kids around town, nothing beats the go-to jeans and white t-shirt. Dress up this classic look for St. Patty’s day with a green scarf, like this mosaic print scarf by Michael Kors. Carry your KRAVE® e-cigs in a green purse, we love Banana Republic’s Parkside Satchel. Keep the sun off your face with a straw fedora, Collection XIIX makes a sun tan colored fedora that is packable for travel. Finish the look with a pair of lucky gold sandals, Steven Madden’s ‘Kroatia’ leather sandals definitely fit the bill.
Night on the Town
St. Patrick’s Day is the one day out of the year people flood dive bars and pubs to drink green beer. Bartenders will take your money whether you dress like a fool or not. Consuming copious amounts of beer leads to developing a beer belly and those don’t look cute on anyone. Look cute and keep the beer belly hidden in a flowy dress, like this teal skater dress from Forever 21.We like this pair from H&M because it goes with a lot of the clothes we already own. Add a good luck charm with a gold colored four-leaf clover bracelet by Alex and Ani.
