St. Patrick’s Day is in T- 2 days! Personally, I don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day beyond wearing green and maybe having a green beer. And I think it’s safe to say that although there are those who attend church services and lift off Lenten restrictions on March 17th, the majority of us celebrate the same way I do: Wear green and drink beer.
Recently it has come to my attention from many conversations that green is not a popular colour in anyone’s wardrobe, for both ladies and gents. Is this true? Either way, it got me thinking: Is this because green is a difficult colour to match? Is it not the most flattering colour? Is it too vibrant? Are people unsure of what to and what not to wear in green?
For myself, any green items of clothing I do have are sleeveless tops, and no blouses or sweaters. I am sorry to say I have no green denim, but I think I can live with that… So what’s the best way to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day? Probably in moderation I’d suggest. I don’t need to teach or advise how to wear green, but because it is an uncommon colour to wear and there are so many different hues and shades, you should keep in mind the type of green you wear or buy because some lighter or darker ones may not pair well with your skin tone. I know that mint/pastel green has emerged as a spring/summer trend, so I would probably wear those shades as opposed to the ones with more of a yellow tint in them. I also find the lighter shades of green easier to match with what I have in my wardrobe.
In terms of accessories, green is in. Not just for St. Patrick’s Day, but for springtime. Ocean hues (blues, greens) are definitely a trend in accessories, so don’t think that a pair of green earrings would only fly on March 17th.
If I end up wearing something St. Patty’s Day worthy, I’ll write a short outfit post over the weekend! Until then, have a fun and beer-filled St. Patrick’s day, which is actually the most widely celebrated saint’s day in the world! And don’t forget at least one item of green
Did you know?!
The colour that used to be associated with St. Patrick’s Day was blue! But because St. Patrick used a shamrock (which is green) in his explanations of the Holy Trinity, wearing the green shamrock colours have become so popular for the day.
