10 Green Things To Wear On St. Patrick’s Day

Ahh… St. Patrick’s Day, it’s one of the very few times in the calendar year where downing a pint of beer or Guinness – depending on your taste buds’ preference – is a quintessential part of a very old and celebrated cultural Irish tradition. In addition to raising a glass (or two) to toast the occasion at your local watering hole, another part of the St. Patrick’s Day tradition is to wear green. On March 17th this colour is worn to the max and usually in the most unstylish ways; green top hats, tights with shamrocks, red wigs and beards, and t-shirts which say “Kiss me I’m Irish” are just a few of the cringe worthy fashions that appear on the streets of fair cities around the world.

Joining in the festivities is fun but looking like the leprechaun from the Lucky Charms cereal box is not a something you want to be known for, especially if you’re grabbing a celebratory drink with your coworkers outside of the office. How can you participate in this occasion without looking like a heinous green mess? We sourced 10 green clothes and accessories you can proudly wear on March 17th that will make you look and feel like a pot of gold, figuratively speaking of course.

For example, the cotton waffle knit sweater from Parisian brand Ami makes for a comfortable and handsome piece to change into when you’re off the clock and going to the pub. Looking to channel that famed luck of the Irish? The pair of silver four-leaf clover cufflinks from Cufflinks Inc. makes subtle and very stylish additions. In the footwear department, Mark McNairy’s desert boots are expertly crafted from suede and designed in a minimalist silhouette.
