The Best Ways to Wear Green This St Paddy's Day

Whether you're as Irish as the Blarney Stone itself, only a bit "Irish-ish" or haven't got even a drop of Emerald Isle in you, wearing green on St. Patrick's Day (March 17) is a must—even if it's only for the sake of avoiding being pinched by any pesky leprechauns throughout the day.

Not sure how to sport the shamrock shade on St. Paddy's Day (and yes, as your Irish friends will tell you, it's "Paddy's," not "Patty's" or "Patties") this year? We've got some ideas that should work, no matter how much green you've got to actually spend on your look for the day:

If It's Chilly Out: A Deep Green Sweater

Stay warm while staying festive with a chunky sweater in a gorgeous forest green or deep emerald shade. Not only is it on point for wearing to class, work or even a casual get-together, but it's also a versatile enough piece to wear over and over again.


If You Always Need to Have Your Nails Done: A Sage-Green Polish

Green is a seriously underrated color for your manicure, especially when you consider how subtle and soft a shade like sage can be. You can go with any green shade for your St. Paddy's look, and if nothing else you can enjoy knowing that green is a color associated with success (those green nails might just be the good luck charm you need when taking your next exam).

If You're Feeling Bold: Green Eyeshadow

You know those shades in your biggest eye shadow palettes that have never felt the touch of a brush because they simply don't suit your everyday look? It's time to bring them out to see the light of day. If you have a green eyeshadow around somewhere, now's the time to pull it out. Use it on your lids, as a liner or just to highlight your lash line for a pop of color that ties your look together.
