Green can be neutral too! Khaki green, that is...ha ha ha :) Okay so you all know I love my neutrals but I also like to get festive for any holiday...so what's a girl to do when it comes to wearing green, gold & white on Paddy's Day?! Here are my tips on how to do just that, while still staying true to your style! (And not look like a clown ;)
Watch the video here first...or after, whatever you like :)
Top/Bien Bleu, Pants/Cheap Monday, Boots/LoveClothing
My number one favourite shade of green is khaki green. I find it flatters my skin-tone being a warmer shade (rather than a kelly green, for example) and it works very well with other warm neutrals such as brown, beige & taupe. So that's my first tip: pick a shade of green that you like, which flatters your skin-tone and that works well with other colours in your wardrobe.
Another way to incorporate green into your outfit is to wear it in your jacket or blazer! That way, no matter what you have on underneath you still look festive and won't be pinched ;) This jacket also has some gold chain-mail detailing in the shoulders and side pocket so we're also including some gold in the look!
Scarf/Esprit, XO Necklace/Designs by Farah M, Earrings/Forever21, Bracelet/Vintage
Here comes the fun part -- accessories! If you don't feel like going all out wearing green, white & gold this year you can always incorporate those colours into your accessories. This is a more subtle, toned down look where I worked with lots of gold, some light greens in the scarf, white in the earrings and a hint of orange in the bracelet. All boxes ticked for Patrick's Day :)
Earrings & bracelets/Pulse Accessories
For a slightly bolder look, play with some fun jewellery like these daffodil disc earrings (perfect for spring!) and kelly green wooden bangles.
Cardigan/Promod, T-shirt/Esprit, Pants/ASOS, Shoes/Hello Kitty Store
Here's my second look. It's still featuring the same colours -- khaki green, beige, olive green and a bit of black too. I feel like this one shows my baby bump more though because of the style of the cardigan ;)
Farrah Necklace & Gehry cuff/Jewelmint
For a subtler toned down Paddy's Day look, I kept the accessories all gold. But you could also do something a lot brighter and a little bit bohemian like this:
I wouldn't normally wear such a bold earring with this necklace but for such a fun occasion I think it's okay :) Plus orange is such a pretty bright colour and stands out particularly well with warm neutrals! I toned down the look a little with a brown wooden cuff.
I hope these tips were helpful for you other neutral-loving girls out there like me! Have a safe and happy St. Patrick's Day!
