8 Tips to Save You a Pinch on St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day is here, and once again you’ve forgotten to prepare. As you frantically dig through your closet for a hint of green to catch your eye—you remember green isn’t you color. Not to worry, we’ve got you covered! Here are 8 ideas to get you through the greenest day of the year and save you some pinches.
1. Layers, layers, layers
A simple cardigan or sweater can go a long way. Add a dash of green to an otherwise green-less outfit without having to go all out. Just be careful not to overdo it…
2. Rock the socks
Maybe looking like a giant pickle isn’t your thing. Keep it lowkey with a pair of green socks and introduce any approaching pincher to your foot. How you show them your green is completely up to you…
3. Tee-nage Mutant Ninja Turtles, anyone?
Pull out an old graphic tee with the TMNT, Incredible Hulk, Kermit the Frog, or other classic characters who embrace their green skin. Don’t have one? They’re fairly easy to come by at most retailers and can be worn year-round!
4. The answer is right at your fingertips
Look beyond the closet and replace your old, chipped nail color with something a little more…green? The perfect, subtle way to incorporate the color into your outfit and leave some green on your pinched victims.
5. Or maybe it’s been on your face the whole time?
Green-colored makeup is an easy way to get away with green, or even complement the rest of your St. Patrick’s Day outfit. Maybe a little green eyeshadow will do the trick? Just don’t go overboard or you’ll start to resemble a leprechaun.
6. Accessorize with the greenest thing you can find
Maybe you have some headbands stuffed in a drawer? Jewelry with emeralds? Old bracelets with some lucky…charms? Hats, sunglasses, pins—whatever it is, you’re bound to make it work.
7. Bring out the green beverages
Grab a green cup, grab a green drink, and hold on tight because your night’s just getting started. With enough drinks, eventually you won’t even be able to feel the pinches! It’s a win-win.
8. Or…just wing it
If all else fails, grab a green marker and draw some four-leaf clovers on your face. Make a leprechaun hat out of construction paper. Roll around in the grass and get some fresh, green grass stains. In the end, who’s gonna question your dedication?
At the end of the day, just enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day. Whether you’re hitting your local Irish pub, staying in with a bowl of Lucky Charms and watching Leprechaun, or venturing out to find that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow—make it a memorable and safe one! Good luck!
