3 fun, stylish ways to wear green for St. Patrick’s Day
By Brittany Anas
Public service announcement: Wear green on Monday, March 17 to avoid getting pinched. With St. Patrick’s Day just a couple of weeks away, we’re rounding up some fun ways to show your green. While it might be a fashionista’s nightmare to show up wearing the same thing as everybody else, there’s a gorgeous spectrum of greens to choose from so that you can differentiate yourself and also safeguard yourself from pinches.
Here’s a few of our favorite festive looks from Old Navy, where you’ll get up to 5 percent Cash Back on your purchases.
- Max out in green: If St. Patrick’s Day is your Christmas, and you love going all out, try a jersey-tank maxi dress in “green scream.” It’ll have you covered. Still cool in your region? Pair it with a cropped leather moto jacket and loop a scarf around your neck for a perfect spring transitional outfit. We saw lots of watercolor-inspired prints on the runways and are drawn to these gauze scarves, which are on sale for $12 and have subtle hints of green.
- Accessorize in green: So green isn’t your color? Just accessorize with it — or choose a shade that is a little less uncommon like army green or a soft mint green. (It’s like winning on a technicality). We’re loving these perforated green faux suede shoes that would look darling with light khaki chinos and a white top, giving your outfit a pop of color. We also love these striped oxford pullovers in soft, springtime pastels — including a “mini mint” color. Wear with jeans and pattern mix it with a floral scarf for a look that’s both leproachaun and spring-approved.
- St. Patrick’s Day T-shirts: The Disney collection at Old Navy has a touch o’ Irish added in — like this Mickey Mouse St. Patrick T-shirt in heather gray. For the weekend leading up to St. Paddy’s Day, how about some loungewear, like thise mini-shamrock pajama shorts?
Dressing your kiddos up for the day, too? How adorable is this Lucky Charm hat for babies? It’s on sale for $7. How’s that for the luck of the Irish?
