I have a love/hate relationship with St. Patricks Day.

I absolutely love celebrating my culture and having the craic, and a pint of the black stuff with friends and family. What I can’t stand, though, is the sight of ghastly bottle green – or worse – luminous green sundresses?and skinny jeans that often comes with the festivities. I’m not alone, right? Unless you’re jokingly wearing a “Kiss me I’m Irish” T-shirt from your nearest €2 shop, it can be hard to blend our national shade?into your everyday wardrobe. Here’s your handy guide to incorporating green into your wardrobe without looking like a walking clich? or an extra from Darby-O-Gill And The Little People, as well as 20 outfit inspirations from New York, London, Paris, and Milan to get you started.

Be Kind To Your Complexion

Certain shades of green clash with?our Irish pinky complexions, often causing?a washed-out appearance?that’s more clammy-looking?than chic. Unless you’re blessed with olive or dark-toned skin, choose warmer tones like pine green, seaweed, and basil. I love this belled sleeve top from Zara, and at €19.95, it’s a steal.

It Doesn’t Have To Be Obvious

You don’t have to dress head-to-toe-green to get into the Paddy’s Day spirit. Adding small, subtle accents can have just as big an impact.?These green zebra, textured ankle socks from Topshop will’do the trick, or go big with these stunning?Cat-eye embellished acetate sunglasses by Dolce & Gabbana.

Mix It Up A Bit

Opt for clashing prints and textures in different tones. Have fun with a mixture of styles and looks. I love this laid-back shirt and pant combo (loose-fitting clothes are essential for weekend activities), and I would team them with the latest Puma Fenty x Rihanna Trinomic Bandana in olive branch, a cool Panama?hat and a burst of colour with a small over-the-shoulder bag.

 

Tropical floral-print silk shirt, €531 at?Nemesi. Vadet trousers, €248 at Max Mara. Felt panama hat with plait braid trim, €26.67 at Asos. ?Trinomic Bandana Olive Branch, Puma Fenty By Rihanna, €160 at nakedcph.com. Shoulder bag, €24.99 at H&M?

If you’re still not convinced, take a look up top at some of the industries most stylish?and see how they pull off this harder-than-it-looks trend. Happy?green outfitting!
