Fashion Porn: Getting it on with St. Patrick

With just a week away from one of my personal favorite “holidays,” it’s time to start digging through our wardrobes looking for that pot of gold, otherwise known as green clothing to wear on St. Patrick’s Day. If you don’t wear green on a regular basis, it’s a good idea to stock up on a few things now so you don’t give drunk frat boys a reason to pinch you. (Unless you’re into that sort of thing…)

Lucky for you there are lots of pretty green items to add your your wardrobe for the occasion. Whether you’re celebrating with the gang at your local Irish pub, or hiding in the library trying to avoid the drunks, green is not only festive, but it adds a pop of color to your look on St. Paddy’s day and beyond! For those not wanting to commit to a full green dress, an accessory (note: NOT the shamrock headband thingies) is an easy way to add a touch of color, without being dressed head to toe like a leprechaun.

Ready to do St. Pat’s in style? Here are 15 festive pieces to get you started.

And remember, if you want to honor St. Pat the right way, there are a few rules you gotta follow.

You search for the carbiest things you can find, then shove a half frozen bagel into your mouth and wash it down with some OJ, the only non-alcoholic beverage you will have for the day. You don’t have time for chewing; you have an outfit to pick out. […]

    2. […] Dressing for St. Patrick’s Day can be fun, but can often times border on tacky. Luckily, there are lots of great green clothing items out there that are festive enough to keep you from getting pinched but you can wear long after St. Patrick’s Day is over! What’s even better, all of these pieces are less than $20 — and there’s not a shamrock in sight! jQuery(function($){$("a img.gallery-wall-fade").hover(function(){$(this).stop().animate({opacity:.5},{queue:false,duration:400});},function(){$(this).stop().animate({opacity:1},{queue:false,duration:400});});}); Tags: 8 under $20, budget fashion, cheap clothes, college fashion, college st patrick's day, college style, cute clothes, green, green fashion, st paddys day, st patricks day, st patricks day clothes /* */ /* */ Follow College Candy on TwitterFan College Candy on Facebook […]
