Oh, Saint Patrick's Day. As usual it poses a fashion dilemma. How do you uphold your duty to wear green without looking like a sad Irish leprechaun? The thing is, green is not always the easiest colour to wear. Most of the green items that I own come in pseudo-neutral shades like olive, khaki and army green - appropriate for everyday life, but not Team Green enough for this particularly tricky holiday. Here are three ways to dress for St-Patty's Day using pieces that you can wear year-round, thus avoiding a fashion hangover, if not a real one.

For a cute and flirty St. Patrick's Day outfit, try a bright green dress with black accessories. A great solid frock can be dressed up for work or dressed down for the weekend, so you'll get plenty of use out of it. Throw on your favourite pair of black flats and a fitted blazer for a chic, tailored look. If it's warm outside, ditch the tights and substitute a pair of black wedges instead!

If you're keeping your celebrations low-key, grab a green v-neck to get you through the night. The deep neckline is universally flattering and a solid sweater can be re-purposed for work or play. Jazz up your outfit with a pair of bright flats, which add a fun pop of colour on any day of the year. Toss on your bomber jacket and you're ready to go :)
Try this: Mock Button Cuff Sweater, Forever 21 (find it here)

If you're feeling daring, why not try out the new coloured denim craze? Red, pink, yellow, orange and green denim are all super on trend this season, so go ahead and experiment. Pair your bright jeans with a pair of sexy pumps and a translucent top for a fashion-forward look. Pull the whole thing together with some bold green statement jewellery.
Try this: Coloured Denim Capris (find them here)
As for me, I think I'm going to go for a dressed-down version of the 'flirty' look. I'll post an OOTD later this weekend. Hope you all have a great St. Patty's Day!! Stay safe :)
Talk soon,
