It’s St Patrick’s Day today, so, may the luck of the Irish be with us all, and it’s a great excuse to take a look at some lovely green clothes, with a St Patrick’s Day fashion moment!
What on earth, I hear you cry? St Patrick’s Day fashion? Fret not, I don’t expect you all to be popping on leprechaun outifits and growing ginger beards – and we certainly don’t expect any Irish people to be doing that today or any other day. Well, maybe the beard, or for fancy dress, but well, anyway, you get our point.
St Patrick’s Day fashion is purely about gorgeous, wearable, green. Mint, lime, olive, emerald, and more, there are loads of lovely ways to wear green.
If you’re heading out for a pint of Guinness this St Patrick’s Day, you may want to have a wee St Patrick’s Day fashion moment of your own.
If you want to be traditional, stick to bold, bright, emerald green, like the green in the Republic of Ireland flag. Mix it up with a white pattern or print, or add layers of lime.

if bold, bright, lime or emerald greens are too much, then perhaps pastel mints or pale olives are more to your St Patrick’s Day fashion taste?
Mix it up with patterns, monochrome, dots, or texture, and, again, if you aren’t loving green head to toe, then a simple accessory is enough.
