Here at CF, we always try to look out for our readers’ best interests in any and every way we can. That’s why, for today’s post, we created a quiz inspired by St. Patrick’s Day to ensure that our readers don’t become helpless victims of green-wearing, pinching bandits that run around on this day.

Okay, so we may not be saving lives, but we think that if we can save just one person from the painful prick of a pinch, our efforts are worthwhile.

To help you create a fashionable and pinch-proof outfit come March 17th, just take this quiz below to find out what you should wear on St. Patrick’s Day! If you take the quiz here on the site, the widget will automatically total up your answers for you. If you print the quiz, total up the letters you got and find which one you selected the most. Once you get your answer, find your letter and corresponding result below for a sample outfit based on your personality type.

Quiz Results – No peeking!

Below are the results of the quiz. Don’t look if you haven’t taken it yet! I’ve created one outfit for each result to help give you some ideas for what to wear. Enjoy!

Mostly A’s: The Lucky Leprechaun

Product Information: Jacket, Top, Watch, Pants, Shoes, Backpack

Your personal style sways on the trendy side, and this outfit is a great way to showcase your on-trend look on the 17th. While this green shirt’s shiny fabric makes it a true stand out, topping it with a navy varsity jacket helps anchor the look. Next, pair these pieces with polka dot-print trousers and trendy crochet skimmers. Lastly accessorize the look with a gold watch that gives a nod to a leprechaun’s coveted pot of gold and a trendy tie dye denim backpack for your books.

Mostly B’s: Green with Envy

Product Information: Cardigan, Top, Earrings, Pants, Sunglasses, Shoes

St. Patrick’s Day is often associated with a bright kelly green, but your aesthetic leans more towards light, pastel shades. To show your holiday spirit without giving up your style, try a monochrome mint look like this one.

To create this outfit, pair a light mint green top with a darker pair of mint skinny jeans. Use a simple gray cardigan as a cozy cover-up and slip into some studded slipper flats. Finish the ensemble with a printed pair of sunnies and jeweled posts and you will be ready to express your style while staying safe from the pinching bandits.

Mostly C’s: Kiss me! I’m Irish

Product Information: Ring, Sweater, Bag, Skirt, Necklace, Boots

If your plans include a night out (or even if you feel like getting a little dressed up for daytime), an outfit like the one above is an appropriate and fun way to celebrate. I love this metallic tweed skirt – balancing it with an oversized pullover keeps the look from going over-the-top. Once you have this base, the rest is all up to the accessories. A jeweled necklace set and a neon bag again add touches of glam to the look while an emerald ring and black booties add on the finishing touches.

Mostly D’s: Shamrock & Roll

Product Information: Shirt, Dress, Tights, Ring, Shoes

This look really plays with the juxtaposition of soft and hard, and feminine and masculine. This dress is a good starting point as the shape and design are very feminine, but the chambray fabric and messy tie-dye print keep it a little bit edgy. To toughen up the look even more, throw on an army green button-up shirt to act as a jacket and some super cool high-top sneakers. Complete this “oh-it’s-St.-Patrick’s-Day?-I-just-threw-this-on” look with gray tights and a thorn ring.

    I’m not Irish, and I don’t identify with St. Patrick’s Day (I’m actually planning on dressing in the Norwegian flag’s color palette this year), so I’m surprised I picked mostly C’s…

    I actually live in Dublin and I’ll be out on the night, but I probably won’t even wear anything green! Really nice outfits though :)

    I got mostly B’s and that outfit is definitely my style! I don’t know why, but I didn’t even think of wearing mint green for St. Patrick’s Day. I now know what I’ll be wearing. Thanks CF!
