I don’t know about you, but I don’t like being pinched. And I grew up with people who took not wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day very seriously. They would carefully scan you, head to toe, trying to find your green, and hoping they didn’t, so they could give you a nice big pinch. But I’ve always tried to incorporate green somehow. Whether it’s with my jewelry, my socks, or even my makeup, my St. Patrick’s day look will have green.

You don’t have to do a lime or other festive shade of green. You can do a gorgeous forest green, army green or a lovely sage. You can stick to your personal style and be a mom while rocking your green. If you plan on going big with your green on St. Patrick’s Day, let these looks inspire you. Your fashionably festive outfit will make all your friends green with envy.

1. Sweater & Pencil Skirt

If your St. Patrick’s Day is going to be a chilly one, break out that oversized sweater and pair it with a neutral pencil skirt. The earthy looking ensemble can be dressed up with a pop of color, which you can easily incorporate with a pair of heels. For working mamas, this could totally work as a casual Friday outfit. And since St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Friday this year, you’ll kill two birds with one stone!

If you’re going to be out and about on St. Patty’s Day, you can do a casual look with a military style vest. Put on your most comfortable pair of denim, good walking shoes, and a basic white tee.

3. Boyfriend Blazer

One way to take your casual outfit up a notch is by wearing a blazer over it. If you’re going to a nice lunch, or to a meeting that is semi-casual, a blazer can dress up your look just enough without being too stiff or corporate looking. Plus, for St. Patrick’s Day, a green blazer will give you the perfect punch of color!

4. Sassy Scarf

You can do green on St. Patrick’s Day without doing it big. Something like a scarf is a simple way to mix in the color without having to be bold about it. If you go with a printed scarf, you can mix it with a contrasting print in your outfit to make a style statement in a trendy way. Just don’t go overboard with mixing prints, so your scarf can get all the attention!

5. Sweater Dress

A sweater dress is comfortable, keeps you warm and is appropriate for moms of all ages. You can wear it with or without tights, and dress it up with just one or two simple pieces of jewelry. Make your St. Patrick’s Day a breeze by donning a classic sweater dress that you can sport just about anywhere. Run errands by pairing it with ballet flats. Meet the girls for lunch by doing ankle boots. Enjoy a St. Patrick’s Day dinner date with your hubby by strutting around in a pair of sexy heels.

Show off your long legs on St. Patrick’s Day with a pair of green skinny jeans. Wear with a tunic or sweater and boots. Stick to neutral colors for a more basic look, or mix in colorful pieces for something more dramatic. You can also try combining different textures to pull your outfit together.

7. Green On Green

Want to make a big statement with your green on St. Patty’s Day? Try a double dose of the color by incorporating two pieces of green into your outfit. Go with a green top, sweater, jacket or pants, and add an accessory like a handbag. Depending on how busy the rest of your outfit is, you can do two different shades of green to create a monochrome look. Just don’t mix in too many different elements, or your outfit will not look put together.
