Wear Green On St. Patty's Day Without Looking Like A Leprechaun

If you’re like most of us, the majority of Friday, March 17th will be spent in the office. For those of you who aren’t like us and plan on crawling to and from eight different bars, godspeed. St. Patty’s Day is notorious for drinking, but for those celebrating with green glazed donuts from Dunkin Donuts provided by their office manager, we have 5 stylish ideas for what to wear on St. Patrick’s Day.

Now, you only want to incorporate one to two of these ideas into your outfit to avoid looking like a leprechaun. These green accessories will also pay off if you decide to go out with friends or coworkers after work and don’t want to get pinched for not wearing green.

Why do we even wear green? No, green wasn’t just St. Patrick’s favorite color. Green was the color of the shamrock, a three-leafed plant that’s abundant in Ireland, which St. Patrick used to as a tool to explain one of the basic tenets of Catholicism, the holy trinity. The green shamrock became a symbol of Irish Catholicism in general and St. Patrick in particular and the rest is history.

So, here’s what to wear on St. Patrick’s Day because you can’t spend all day in a pub (unfortunately):
