March 17 is right around the corner and style aficionados will have one thing on their minds: How to wear green! Yes, there is such thing as too much green, but there are plenty of ways to paint the town without going overboard on the shamrock shimmer. Keep reading for our favorite tips to celebrating this festive holiday in style.


Pair bold colors with green

Hunter or luxe green are two “it” colors of the moment that work well with bold hues for a never-fail style pairing that instantly makes any outfit look put-together. Hunter green and mustard make for a vintage look while luxe green and blush pink add an extra dose of femininity.


Choose only one type of green makeup

Green is a tough shade to pull off in the beauty world, but highlighting just one area can bring a festive look without looking like an overzealous leprechaun.  Try a palette of three different shades of green eye shadows or a dark, hunter green nail lacquer—perfect not just for St. Paddy’s, but all throughout spring.


Accessorize in a pinch

Never underestimate the power of a green handbag, statement necklace, headband, belt or breezy scarf. These are great green options if you’re in a hurry and are easy ways to add color to your outfit long after the festivities are done. 


Relax with a DIY mask

No plans this year? Celebrate at home by unwinding with a DIY green mask! Whip up French green clay with a bit of yogurt powder, green tea powder and peppermint for a creamy yet refreshing mask that’s especially good for oily skin.
