Go Green: Our 3 Favorite Styling Tips for St. Paddy’s Day

Surprisingly, wearing green for St. Patrick’s Day is an American tradition that seems to have started in the 1700s. Today, most of wear green even if it’s just to avoid being called a bump on the log. Here are three styling approaches for you to take, depending on your level of enthusiasm!

#1: For the woman who just doesn’t want to be pinched

Even if you don’t have any green clothes in your wardrobe, you can make a statement with your choice of jewelry, a scarf or a belt. Hopefully you own a little black dress like the Jackie. We love the Jackie with a belt for a pop of color, and emerald would do the trick!

#2: For those who want to celebrate

It should be easy to throw on a green top or bottom. Most of us have at least one of these in our closet.

We recommend our Clemy dress. It’s made from a cream knit blouse and is attached to a hunter green skirt. Most people will think you’re wearing separates, but the Clemy is one connected dress that is so easy to slip into. With its high quality knit blouse, the Clemy is perfect for mid-March, where most climates are still just a little chilly.

What we love about the Clemy is how darling this dress looks with extra layers of green added, which brings us to our next option …

#3: For the true Irish lover

If you want to go all out, go monochromatic and wear two to three shades of green. You could pair a green top, bottom or dress with a green coat, scarf, belt, shoes or purse.

To achieve this look, we recommend starting with our Grace plaid dress (only remaining in XS).
