Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day in style
Whether you have any Irish blood in you or not, you can honor Saint Patrick during his namesake holiday by dressing the part. For hundreds of years people have worn green clothing and adorned themselves with shamrocks in celebration of the Irish Saint who is often – but falsely – remembered for banishing all snakes from Ireland. This year, don your best Saint Patrick’s Day outfit and soak in all the dyed green rivers, green bagels and green beer. Here are a few suggestions to help you look your best on March 17.
- Not one to plan out outfits in advance? Roll out of bed and throw on a Saint Patrick’s Day shirt for instant spirit.
- If you are a daily jewelry wearer, mix up your accessories by putting on a shamrock necklace. If you have pierced ears, adorn them with a pair of Irish earrings like Celtic knot earrings.
- Feeling especially festive? Venture out in an Irish costume and you’re sure to be the hit of the party.
- Don’t leave your head in the cold – top off your outfit with an Irish hat.
Once you look the part, you might want to go all out and decorate your humble abode as well. Check out these Saint Patrick’s Day decorations to include your room or home in the holiday fun.
