17 Stylish Ways to Wear Green
According to legend, wearing green on March 17 makes you invisible to leprechauns. You know, the fairy creatures that get their kicks from pinching people. Not that we really believe old wives’ tales, of course. But avoiding a pinch is the perfect excuse to get into the festivities. Thankfully, there are plenty of stylish ways to wear green. Just ask the street style set.
Being green may not be easy, but there are smart ways to incorporate the springtime color into your sartorial lineup. Make a statement with a striking green coat. It’s still cold out there. It’s a great way to introduce a pop of green to your outfit. Don’t be shy about combining several shades of green in one outfit, though. (This is where the continued obsession with all things neon comes in handy.) Looking for something subtler? Slip on a plaid suit with touches of green in the pattern.
Accessories are another way to embrace the lucky hue. You have your pick of sunglasses, bags or even silk scarves. And don’t forget about shoes. Whether you prefer boots, pumps, sneakers or sandals this time of year, they’re ideal for kicking things up a notch.
