House parties with close friends and family tend to be casual, laidback affairs. You want to look cute and festive but also relaxed and comfortable while indulging in Irish stews, sodas and beers.

Keep makeup simple with lush green eyeshadow and nude lips. Have fun with St. Patty’s Day hair accessories like green headbands adorned with sparkly shamrocks.

Chic Green Outfits for Pub Crawls

Pub crawls call for more party-ready ensembles so you can hit the dance floor in Irish bars and nightclubs. Shorter hemlines, tighter fits and bolder accessories help transition your St. Patrick’s Day look from day to night. Some flattering options include:

satin emerald mini dress
a shimmery emerald green wrap dress
a silky olive green cami
a pine green skater skirt
  • Layer a sequin emerald crop top over a black bodysuit with ripped black jeans and green heeled booties to dance from pub to pub in sparkling style.

Complete your sultry look with bold green eyeliner, glossy lips and tousled half-up hair. Stock up on shamrock swag like green glow stick necklaces and headbands for the occasion.

Classy Green Attire for Office Parties

If your workplace is hosting a professional St. Patrick’s Day bash, opt for more refined green styles appropriate for the office. You can still show your Irish spirit in the boardroom by incorporating versatile green accents and accessories. Some polished green picks include:

dark green faux-wrap dress

a moss green button-up blouse

  • Keep it professional but fun with an emerald green blazer over a black sleeveless sheath dress and simple black suede heels.

Dressy Green Cocktail Attire for Irish Club Events

Local Irish heritage clubs and societies throw swanky soirées on March 17th complete with live music, traditional cuisine and fabulous drinks. These formal St. Patrick’s Day affairs are the perfect opportunity to don an elegant cocktail dress or evening gown in a striking shade of green. Some glamorous options include:

an emerald green satin cocktail dress with cap sleeves
a jewel-toned green evening gown with an off-the-shoulder neckline
a rich hunter green fit-and-flare dress with a bejeweled neckline and backless design
a floor-length forest green ballgown

Play up the old Hollywood glamour vibes with cascading curls, bold red lip and cat-eye embellished with green glitter liner. Complete the look with a sparkly gold and green clutch bag.

Trendy Green Outfits for College Parties

University student-run parties and campus events are usually big, wild affairs. Short, tight-fitting green dresses and separates are your best bet for maneuvering crowded house parties and packed pubs on St. Paddy’s Day. Consider these age-appropriate options:

  • Layer a green sequin tank under a black faux leather moto jacket with cuffed skinny jeans and green strappy heels to dance the night away in.

Complete your youthful St. Patrick's Day ensemble with glow-in-the-dark shamrock accessories and festive glitter makeup in emerald hues.

Green Outerwear For Bundled Up Festivities

If St. Patrick’s Day brings cold winds and rain, don’t let the temperamental March weather dampen your Irish spirit. Stay cozy and dry while traipsing between pubs and parades by layering with versatile green outerwear. Some options include:

  • Pair a neon green parka with blue skinny jeans, hunter green Wellies and an Irish flag scarf for wet festivals and muddy outdoor gatherings.
  • Throw on an olive green trench coat over a LBD and heel booties with a bold green lip when transitioning between venues.
  • Stay warm wearing a kelly green peacoat over a neutral sweater dress, black tights and ankle boots as you walk in the annual parade.
  • Pull on a pine green utility jacket with a gray jumper dress, thick leggings and black riding boots for a comfortable, stylish look.
  • Or bundle up in an oversized emerald green sherpa hoodie with black leggings, white trainers and shamrock hair clips and earrings.

Don’t let blustery weather prevent you from sporting green garb and joining in the St. Patrick's Day revelry. With the right outerwear, you can take on whatever March decides to bring!

Accessorizing Your St. Patrick’s Day Look

No St. Patrick's Day outfit is complete without accessories and embellishments embracing the luck o’ the Irish. Adorn yourself in these symbolic shades of green:

  • Jewelry: Emerald and jade jewelry like pendant necklaces, chandelier earrings, and cocktail rings add a pop of festive green. Gold jewelry with Celtic knots or Claddagh emblems also represent Irish heritage.
  • Shoes: Green heels, booties and sneakers in various shades like kelly green, mint and forest green are a fun way to incorporate more green. Metallic gold and silver shoes also coordinate nicely.
  • Makeup: Play up your eyes with green eyeliner, eye shadow and mascara.
