Everyone loves having a reason to celebrate, and St. Patrick’s Day is certainly one of the most popular days to do just that! St. Patrick’s Day was established in the 17th century to honor St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland; March 17th is thought to be the date of his death. Of course, the day has taken on added meaning, evolving into a global celebration of Ireland and the Irish people. And when it comes to celebrating, we all know that green is the color to focus on, whether it’s for clothing, food, or drinks!
If you’re planning to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year and want to get all decked out for the occasion, here are a number of products that you may want to purchase and have ready so you can celebrate the day in style — and on a budget!
As the base of your outfit inspiration, you’ll want to make sure that the outfit itself channels St. Patrick’s Day. And plaid, the color green clothing, and some tweed items can all work together to create the perfect St. Patrick’s Day attire!
Plaid itself is a great pattern to sport on St. Patrick’s Day, but adding some green into the mix makes it even better. This loose-fitting green plaid top looks extra festive, yet also blends perfectly into the everyday wardrobe.
That way, you won’t be splurging for a one-time outfit that won’t see the light of day after the 17th of March. Instead, your shopping can go further by choosing products that are versatile enough to fit into your everyday wardrobe.
Pair your plaid sweater with some plaid trousers to really put a stand-out outfit together! Or if you want to be a bit more subtle, simply pair your plaid trousers with a solid shirt for a less bold yet still festive and appropriate celebratory outfit for the day.
You can find all these pieces at your favorite department store, and can even save a few bucks by looking for online deals.
