St. Patrick’s Day is just over the rainbow–er, right around the corner–and we are so ready to get out and celebrate after this 18-year-long winter. Whether you’re heading out to watch a parade with family or kicking off the weekend with friends, you may find yourself wondering what to wear.
Before you reach for a kelly green boa or festive shamrock shirt, we’ve put together 5 looks with a *pinch* of green that won’t leave you looking like a leprechaun.
While we can’t offer you a pot of gold, you’re sure to hit the jackpot with any of these fashion-forward St.Patrick’s Day outfits.

1. Mixed Greens
It’s easy to get your greens when camo continues to conquer the fashion industry. Wearing varied shades of olive is the toned down way to do St. Patty’s Day if you’re not into wearing vibrant colors. A cool camo jumpsuit paired with a classic white denim jacket is an effortless St.Patrick’s Day outfit you’ll wear way past March 17th.
2. Pops of Pistachio
We love a soft shade of pistachio combined with a pair of casual cutoffs. It feels polished without being over-the-top and is a great transitional outfit for spring. You’ll feel comfortable no matter where the festivities take you. If it’s still a little chilly where you live (residing in Milwaukee, we can 100% relate), swap the shorts for skinnies to keep you warm.
3. Sage & Animal Print
Animal print is an easy way to turn heads and make your friends green with envy. A sage green animal print matching set in sage green is a great way to sport the playful pattern on St. Patrick’s Day. A crossbody satchel is a perfect companion for celebrating a holiday. All of your favorite belongings will be easily accessible, and your hands will be freed up for all the toasts you’ll be making with your Insta-worthy green drinks.
4. Minty Fresh
Wear vibrant skinny jeans in a mint hue—you’re sure to stand out against the sea of basic emerald outfits. This dreamy hue makes us think of tasty Shamrock Shakes–yes, we know they’re as controversial as candy corn–without being the typical shade of four-leaf clover green you’re used to seeing. Round out your St.Patrick’s Day outfit with a striped tee and lace-up sneakers for a cool and casual look.
5. Seafoam Stripes
Simple yet chic green St. Patrick’s Day outfits can be tricky to pull together, but green tie-dye stripes paired with a distressed denim is a look that definitely gets our (Irish) blessing.
Whether your St. Patrick’s Day outfit is covered in shamrocks or has subtle touches of green, we’re wishing you a lucky and lovely day. And, if you’re looking for someone to put together the perfect St. Patrick’s Day outfit for you, we’ve got you! Our Stylists are on standby and can’t wait to curate a box of clothes just for you.
