St. Patrick's Day is coming up quickly (March 17—mark your calendars), so you know what that means—it's time to start outfit-planning. The holiday falls on a Friday this year, which leads us to think that people will be celebrating the occasion even more so than usual.
Just as with any other celebratory holiday, St. Patrick's Day fashion is a thing. But how to wear green isn't exactly as much of a no-brainer as, say, camel or gray. But not to worry, we're here to make it a little easier. The key to wearing green for St. Patrick's Day is to mix it with neutrals and denim and let it shine. If it's competing with other non-neutral colors, it won't be the star of your outfit, which defeats the purpose of wearing green on St. Patrick's Day, right? To get you started, we put together five chic outfits that are sure to help you achieve best dressed status on St. Paddy's Day.
