Whether or not you’re Irish, it’s easy to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day – even if it’s just in your choice of outfit for the day. You can incorporate a little green – or a lot – in whatever shade you want, and you’ll look both festive for the holiday and ready for spring. (Plus you won’t have to worry about getting pinched, like back in elementary school!)

I’ve put together three outfit suggestions for March 17th that incorporate various shades of green. Whatever your style, plans, or favorite shade of green, there’s something for you:


St. Patrick's Day belted skirt white lace shirt
Product Info: Shirt – H&M, Skirt – Modcloth, Bag – Forever 21, Shoes – Charlotte Russe, Earrings – Lucky Brand, Nail Polish – Deborah Lippmann in “Spring Buds”

If you want to acknowledge the holiday without looking too obvious, just try a single pop of green. Pair a sleeveless white lace top with a chambray skirt, then slip on some floral flats. Pastel green nail polish is very spring-appropriate, and a pair of shamrock earrings are a cute and subtle touch. Lastly, grab a bright green tote for a festive pop of color.


St patricks green jeans utility jacket
Product Info: Shirt – Topshop, Jeans – Uniqlo, Jacket – Delia’s, Shoes – Keds, Necklace – ASOS, Bracelet – Madewell

If you prefer more muted green tones, this monochromatic outfit is for you. Try a dark green pair of jeans with a lighter utility jacket layered over a basic striped tee. Cuff your jeans and slip on some neutral sneakers for a casual day look, then accessorize with a woven bracelet and shamrock necklace.


St Patrick's green cutout dress
Product Info: Dress – Forever 21, Shoes –, Necklace – H&M, Earrings – Shopbop, Clutch – Oasis, Ring – ASOS

Have St. Patrick’s Day party plans? Try out this ensemble. Pair an exciting emerald green dress – this one has ultra-cool cutouts – with bright lime heels. You may not have a pot of gold, but you can make a cute nod to the idea with a gold coin necklace and gold clutch. Pick a simple pair of studs that won’t clash with your other jewelry, and finish off the outfit with a cute shamrock ring.


Do you go all out for St. Patrick’s Day? Which look would you wear? What’s your favorite shade of green? Let us know in the comments!
