20 Non-Cheesy St. Patty's Day Outfit Ideas

One color I notice that doesn’t get enough love in my closet is green (oh, and purple). For some reason, green isn’t a color I normally gravitate toward for whatever reason. It seems with the recent attention to military/camo green in the past few years, green has become part of a “neutral” palette, easily mixable with pops of prints (like leopard) or brighter colors.

With the greenest day of the year fast-approaching, it’s no surprise that the masses with be “Googling” and searching high and low for “green” outfit ideas. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these searches turn up ridiculous (read: CHEESY) results that often include clown-like hats, $2 sunglasses, and an off-color phrase regarding “kissing” and/or “shamrocks” (and not the plant kind).

Since I’ve grown out of this phase, I (and I’m sure a lot of you) stay on the lookout for far less “cheesy” versions of this type of seasonal apparel. A few things we’ve got going for us as we hunt for the “perfect St. Patty’s Day outfit”–colored pants are still in, military/camo fashion remains a staple, and this hue comes in several shades to help find one that is flattering on you.

So here is my round-up of yet another mix of non-cheesy St. Patty’s Day outfit ideas! (see previous post here) Be sure to pin from the original source when possible 🙂

Color blocking is still a trend going strong. Stick to a cool palette and add one interest piece in a color from a warm palette, like orange. PHOTO CREDIT

It’s me! Since I’m not a huge fan of green, I try to add little pops of it into my outfit without letting the color take center stage. Here, I added some H&M flats with a bright green necklace to offset the black, white, and yellow.

Sticking with the basics works perfectly in this case. Blue works well with green and the white pulls it all together. Adding a small belt will cinch your waist. PHOTO CREDIT
