What to wear to St. Patrick’s Day in 2022
St. Patrick’s Day is the most well-known and adored Irish holiday by both the Irish and those of other nationalities. Putting together an outfit for the celebration can be challenging, but we’re here to help. If you plan on spending St. Patrick’s Day by attending a parade, going out with your friends, or having a family dinner, here are some outfit ideas you can get your inspiration from.
The most common way of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is by going to a parade. Since this holiday is celebrated not only in Ireland, but also in many other countries, a parade or a march is a common way of celebrating. Whether you’re in the very heart of Dublin or in faraway Tokyo, you can surely attend one. These events are pretty long, so make sure to dress cozy and wear comfortable shoes. However, if you’re that one person that is the life of the party and you want to dress more extra, it is time to pull out of the closet your fun green costume! The indispensable leprechauns cannot be missed from a parade, so such a costume, in addition to an orange wig and some face painting would make the perfect attire for this holiday.
If you or your friends are organizing a party, it makes the perfect occasion to celebrate your heritage and wear a Celtic-inspired outfit in its modern interpretation. There’s no better way to do so than by wearing a traditional knit Irish sweater for St. Patrick’s Day, cardigan, as well as jewelry featuring Celtic motifs like the Tree of Life and Trinity knot. For obvious reasons, green is your go to color for this holiday outfit, so a large, oversized green wool sweater with a midi-length skirt would make a wonderful outfit to celebrate in. If you’re looking for something more sparkly and festive, choose a sequin top and wear it with a pair of straight leg green pants made of satin, as this will create the perfect balance between comfort, beauty, and uniqueness. Don’t forget about the shoes and accessories: a pair of beige stiletto heels, a clutch, and some silver jewelry would do it.
Lastly, if you plan on having a nice family dinner on St. Patrick’s Day, a dress is always the go-to choice. Pick something modest, but stylish, that will highlight your beautiful body. If you’re looking more towards putting together outfits with pants, wear a satin top with some high-waist trousers and complete the look with an elegant silk scarf tied around your neck. A full black outfit would also be a safe choice, but since St. Patrick’ s Day also signifies the official beginning of spring, consider wearing something more colorful, like a floral dress or a blouse and skirt combination. Make sure to wear comfortable clothes, as there will surely be lots of tasty traditional food and activities to play after dinner, and you wouldn’t want to miss out on that.
