If you’re lucky enough to be living in NYC, Chicago or Boston then you’ll already know what your plans are for St Patrick’s day this year. Each year, Americans take to the streets to dress up in a Saint Patrick’s day outfit to go and celebrate with an opportunity to pay tribute to Irish and American culture.
This year, St Paddy’s falls on a Sunday which means there’s no excuse not to get yourself a St Patrick’s Day outfit and go and get into the river-dancing mood to party in the city! Whether you’re Irish, might have Irish heritage or have no Irish blood whatsoever, St Paddy’s is a great excuse to have a grand o’ time with friends.
Green x Green x Green
Granted, green isn't one of the easiest colors to style but green has had it's a fair share of the limelight. Green was Pantone's color of the year for 2017, so it's had its fair share of popularity over the years and it's back once again as we think green is going to be the color of summer which is why you're starting to see accents of zesty green in jewelry, refreshing mint-shades of green clothing and nature-inspired foresty green coats. But does any of this matter? When it comes to a day of celebration if you're one chance to go over the top with your green outfit and just have to make sure you're wearing lots of it!

Finding a St Patrick's Day Outfit
Depending on what kind of celebration you’ll be attending you probably don’t want to spend too much on your St Patrick’s Day outfit so we’ve come up with different ways you can spend less than $50 on your green outfit.
Going all-out with green dresses
The easiest way to get yourself a bargain green outfit is hope for good weather where you can wear a green dress - which means you’ve only got to buy yourself one piece of clothing! There are a couple of places where you can buy some stylish green dresses under $50 especially if you’re opting for a more neutral camo-green than the traditional bubbly limerick green.

Going all night in green heels
Planning a Paddy's night out? A fun way to mix up the look is with a pair of green heels. You might be thinking 'when are you ever going to wear those again?' Well for starters, you’ve already got half your St Patrick’s Day outfit for 2020… but also the summer is just around the corner! (even if it doesn't quite feel like it yet...)
This year is all about bright block colors and the camo-streetwear trend is back; so we think you can totally justify the decision in a pair of striking heels. You can wear green heels with some light wash jeans, flared shorts or a black bodycon dress.
Does a green dress seem a bit too much? There are alternatives! Discover a range of potentially more wearable green tops.
