St Patrick’s Day Outfit Ideas

Whether you are dressing up for a night out with friends, or just a celebration in the office, St Patrick’s day has made it’s way into our daily lives even if you are not Irish. Green is a great color, but you don’t want to overdo it. So we are going to keep it classy, but flirty and fun at the same time.

Personally for me, getting dressed up for a holiday is definitely something I’ve gotten a hang of since I moved to the US. And even though I am definitely not Irish, here are two St Patrick’s Day outfits that I have put together for you (originally posted on the Goodwill MN blog)




The first outfit is based around an emerald green button down shirt, worn tucked in, under a blazer. It’s a perfect look for work. The large amount of green can be overbearing; it is, after all, a bright and bold color. By concealing the shirt under a striped blazer, you are still showing Sr Patrick’s Day spirit without being too “in-your-face.”



The second look is all about fun and flirty. It’s a variation of the whole “Kiss me I’m Irish” slogan. After all, you want to be kissed for the right reasons – not because your T-shirt says so. I added the golden jewelry to both of these looks, because – who knows? – you might just find your pot of gold on St Patrick’s Day! Not too sure about the whole holiday thing? Or green is just not your color? It’s always a safe bet to go with accessories, or make up. Green nail polish is also a huge hit!

    The only opinion I have is the boots. It is a great outfit with them but I am not a fan of boots. The other outfit is awesome as well. Good job on both! 😉
