St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner! Picking out what to wear to celebrate may be tricky, but let's all (please) agree to forgo green headbands and "Kiss Me I'm Irish" tees and instead use the holiday to add shades of green to your look in fresh and interesting ways.
The key to crafting the perfect holiday look is to work with pieces that can be restyled throughout the season, say with Derek Lam sneakers or impossibly cool wide-leg pants by Tome (below). So instead of choosing a bright green sweatshirt stamped with a four leaf clover smack dab in the middle, opt for a minimal green pouch that be used everyday when tucked inside an oversize tote. No matter where you're headed for the day, whether it be a parade or a bar, we created outfits fit for every occasion. All in all, these looks will work on St. Patrick's Day and beyond.
For a trip to the bar (above):
You want to look polished, but not too dressed up. A cool-girl waistcoat layered over a cozy (and warm!) turtleneck teamed with a track pant adds up to be the perfect combo. For your green piece, a statement snakeskin clutch in a deep hue completes the look while steering clear of a kitschy vibe. Finish off with statement flats for a day-long look.
