St Patrick’s Day Style

It’s St Patrick’s Day this Thursday (March 17th), and even if you’re not Irish, you can still celebrate with some St Patrick’s day style!

St Patrick’s day style isn’t really a fashion thing, we know, but any excuse to buy something new to wear, right?

Of course, your St Patrick’s day style means green, green, and then more green.

Go mad for green in a gorgeous fringed bold green dress from H&M (£39.99), or be a bit more subtle in French Connection’s mint green sequinned number (£150) which is oh-so-Hollywood. Louche @ JOY’s bright green shift with ruffle detail on the front (£49) is the perfect little go-anywhere dress, in gorgeous emerald green.

Also at JOY, we’re crushing on this fantastic geo print A-line skirt (£45) in green, black and white which tucks so many on-trend boxes.

If you just want a nod to St Patrick’s Day style, maybe White Stuff’s beaded necklace (£22.50) is a safer bet? Or, if you really want to celebrate, and maybe hope some of the luck of the Irish will reach you, grab a pair of Claire’s Accessories gold ‘Lucky’ shamrock detail hoop earrings (£5.50).

Adidas Superstars in bold green (£75, Schuh) are perfect for St Patrick’s Day with jeans, and maybe a green top. White Stuff’s jersey style is green and white (£35), as is BHS’s crepe shirt sleeved blouse (£19).

St Patrick's Day style weekly wishlist

H&M’s deep green lace crop top (£14.99) is fab – and there’s a matching skirt. JOY’s green cardigan is perfect if you just want a touch of St Patrick’s Day style, and if you are lucky enough to be in warmer climes, how about Floozie by FrostFrench’s fabulous green frilled bikini (top, £26.60, bottoms,£15), Debenhams?

Happy St Patrick’s Day style, everyone!

Emerald Green or 17-5641 on the Pantone database is THE colour to be seen in this year, mark our words!
