What to wear

What you wear will depend on the weather and the type of event you are going to, but if you are planning on splashing out specifically for St Patrick’s Day, consider investing in a quality winter knit, or a sophisticated dress, as the chances are you can wear them throughout the year, as well as for future St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

If you don’t want to wear all out green, you could consider green wellington boots if going to an outdoor event, or some fashion trainers if you want to look good and feel good. Alternatively, you could invest in some show stopper green heels that will be sure to get you noticed.


Army green has long been a popular colour for casual jackets and these look great with denim. If you’re wanting to look a bit smarter, consider a bottle green coat or blazer which can be great for office wear and also look sophisticated, especially against a crisp white shirt or blouse.


There are many St Patricks Day gifts and accessories which can add to your green look, including handbags, scarves and headbands. You may also want to buy something which is specifically for St Patrick’s Day. Look online to find great gift ideas and shamrocks gifts for St Patricks Day and you should find a great selection which can be ordered and delivered in time for the celebrations.


Army combat trousers are very fashionable at the moment. They’re comfortable to wear and look good, either paired with a knitted jumper, or a pastel coloured tee shirt.

Don’t forget, however you celebrate, a customary Guinness is sure to get you in the mood.
