15 green pieces that will have you kitted out for St Patrick’s Day

We’re celebrating the day of our patron saint the best way we know how: putting together a great outfit.


Today is St Patrick’s Day and while none of us is celebrating quite in the way we expected (no house parties, please guys), we’re still in good spirits despite it all. And while it doesn’t look like we’ll have any great occasions to update our wardrobe for over the coming weeks, it never hurts to stir up a little inspiration.

Green can always run the risk of looking garish – it’s a difficult hue to get right. You have to balance between sickly pastels and literal sickly colours that are reminiscent of bodily fluids. But in the middle, there is a sweet spot to be found where green can be one of the most flattering colours out there.

Pistachio and sage green are having a real moment in 2020, but there are many ways to go bolder too. Our favourite picks of the high street to celebrate our day to be green can all be found below:
