What To Wear On St. Patrick's Day If You Don't Have Green

By

St. Patrick's day is oh-so-close. Soon enough, you and your friends can spend a day dressed in green, dancing to festive music, and getting your drinking on (if you're 21 and over, of course). Green food and drinks will be flowing and fun party times are near. But what if you don't have anything green in your closet? It's certainly possible. Green isn't everyone's cup of tea, and while it is very common, there are plenty of people scrambling around for a piece of this festive color. If this is you, you're probably wondering what to wear on St. Patrick's Day.

If you don't want to go out and buy a whole outfit or shirt, since that can end up being pricey in the long run, definitely go out and look for something green and inexpensive. You don't have to stick to silly clichés either, like shirts with "Drinks Well With Others" on it. You can venture out, purchase a couple of small accessories, and you're set. There aren't rules on what you have to wear that's green, just as long as you have something, you'll be in the spirit. So from makeup to socks or headbands, the choices are endless. If anybody even dares to look at you to pinch, flash them your green item. No pinching for you this year. *high five*
