Every St. Patrick’s Day brings with it the inevitable “wear green or get pinched” dilemma. Although we try to be good sports about the spirit of the holiday, few of us actually have this color in our wardrobe. For many, it might come down to running out to a local drug store and picking up a cheap green necklace that, if you’re lucky, has a plastic shot glass hanging from the end of it. If you’ve succumbed to this method of dressing up for St. Patrick’s Day, you might long for the year where you too can own the color green and pull it out for your office party. To help solve this epidemic, we’ve put together five different stylish pieces that you can wear on March 17.
Luna Boutique – Very Merry Velvet Dress, $40
Don’t let the name fool you – this deep green velvet slip dress from Luna Boutique is perfect for a night out at your favorite Irish bar on St. Patrick’s Day. If the weather is still playing tricks on Orange County by mid-March, throw a jacket over the dress and pair it with some leopard booties to mix things up. This sassy outfit will have you forgetting all about your plastic necklace from CVS.
Show Me Your MuMu – Steve Madden Hampton Shoes, $78
Why not show off some green on your feet? These olive Steve Madden sneakers from Show Me Your MuMu are great for the holiday celebration!
