St. Patty's Day: How to Put Together an Easy Green Outfit

It doesn't matter if you're Irish or not: A green outfit is essential for St. Patty's Day if you want to avoid getting pinched. See how to style casual outfits using what you own this favorite spring holiday.

Instead of throwing on a boxy, ill-fitting t-shirt that says 'Kiss me I'm Irish,' why not opt for a more creative ensemble that will get you noticed this year? There are many different shades of green out there, and all are fair game for St. Patty's Day dress-up.

To get started, analyze your closet and pull any green clothing you might own. Decide which shade you're going to wear: Is it a traditional kelly green, a muted military green, or minty pastel? Any green will do. If you don't own many separates, consider shopping for a foundation piece, such as a lightweight utility jacket, on which you can build your look. Olive green skinny jeans are another great option you'll be able to wear all year long. Not into green clothing? Try a statement necklace or bag that adds just the right amount of green to your look. Yes, even the tiniest bit of color counts. Here are the looks we'll be wearing this St. Patrick's Day—and beyond. No blarney! 

Elizabeth styled her St. Patty's Day look with olive skinny jeans and a green army jacket, which was broken up by a chambray shirt and leopard flats. If matching greens are in your plans, be sure to break up the separates with another color. The chambray blue works as a neutral with this look.

Emily chose to wear a striped green sweater and balanced out the look with destroyed boyfriend jeans and ankle boots. Both of these looks incorporate green, but they can be worn any other day of the year, too. Now that's lucky!
