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 🙂
The mix of textures here is amazing! Work a little sequin with satin and mix in a touch of plaid to keep it from looking too formal. PHOTO CREDIT
Printed green pants stand out when paired with a neutral sweater. Bonus points for some heavily glamorous jewel-stacking! PHOTO CREDIT
Bow print heels are to die for. Make them less uptight by adding some leopard print. PHOTO CREDIT
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
Poor Little It Girl nails it here by offsetting a floral pattern with brights. PHOTO CREDIT
If you’re in a warmer climate, stick to this season’s hottest maxi dresses. This one gets an update with a high slit paired with metallic touches. PHOTO CREDIT
Loving the idea of mixing leather-coated pants with a slouchy sweater. Perfect for cold weather.
If you are more into the neutrals, this is a great option. Add one interest piece in green to let it take all of the attention. PHOTO CREDIT
Love how she works a circle skirt with a plaid top while adding metallic flats for a feminine touch. PHOTO CREDIT
Mixing prints will always have a place in my heart–she’s working two prints with a common color between them.
A modern classic for a reason–it’s a simple recipe for success! Stripes + military green + neutrals = perfection.
Gorgeous and so incredibly simple. Add a leopard belt to green skinnies and top it off with a neutral. PHOTO CREDIT
Tie up a simple tee shirt over top of a mini skirt or dress to create a waist. Add a statement necklace and voila!
Simple and classic- military green slacks topped with gingham. PHOTO CREDIT
Work a white blazer over top of a striped shirt, add green skinnies for a pop of simple color. PHOTO CREDIT
Pretty in peplum with mint to create a monochromatic look. PHOTO CREDIT
Add a green accessory to a leather ensemble. PHOTO CREDIT
Classy and preppy. Try mint green if kelly green isn’t your thing. PHOTO CREDIT
