Irish Fashion for St. Patrick's Day 2017
As St. Patrick’s Day approaches and we prepare for everything to turn forty shades of green – we’re embracing Irish fashion. That doesn’t have to mean dressing head-to-toe in emerald (although no one’s stopping you!). There are also some stylish and fashion-forward ways to add an Irish theme into your look just in time for Paddy’s day! Celebrate in true Irish style with our top 5 Irish fashion picks and our styling tips on how to wear them.
Pick #1: Irish Aran Crew Neck Sweater
It doesn’t get more timelessly Irish than this Aran crew-neck sweater. Featuring a classic cable knit, we particularly love this design in the Moss Green shade – although the Natural White colour is just as gorgeous! This is a winter wardrobe staple and it’s also easy to style into a casual outfit – just add a pair of slim-fit jeans, your favourite ankle boots and you’ve created a short-cut to effortless style.
It’ll look great on St. Patrick’s Day and you’ll be relieved to reach for it on those cold winter days too. Many fashion designers try to copy this one and put their spin on it on the catwalk – but the original Irish version remains the best!
Slogan graphic sweatshirts are currently trending – and this one is the perfect nod to Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day. The grey marl design with wine-coloured lettering is giving us retro vibes. Put a cool street style twist on this - pair with minimalist white trainers and style with cut-off shorts for spring.
This sweatshirt will create a low key outfit that’s also a way to celebrate Paddy’s Day. If you’re planning to head to a parade just add something fun to your ensemble such as oversized leprechaun hat and of course, the mandatory pint of Guinness!
High quality materials are essential when you’re purchasing a new bag. You want to know it’ll last and this double buckle front bag is crafted with love from leather and tweed. With a vintage appeal but still modern, this is the perfect way to commemorate all things Irish for St. Patrick’s Day – and you can still wear it year-round. Team it up with a wool boyfriend cardigan for extra style points!
Pick #4: Guinness Ireland Trademark Tee
This piece of authentic Guinness merchandise features the stout’s original logo – including the famous harp. This hits all the right notes for St. Patrick’s Day and can be given a fashion-forward twist -just order up a size to create a slouchy and unfussy fit, and team with skinny jeans or a streamline bottom half. Also great for summer, all you need are shorts and sandals and this memorable t-shirt stands out more than the simple basics.
Pick #5: Hand-Knit Irish Aran Scarf
Wrap up in this Aran scarf that has been hand-knit from 100% soft Merino wool and has a stylish tassel trim. Again featuring the classic Irish cable knit, we love this neutral white scarf that’ll team up with any look. You can bring it to a St. Patrick’s Day parade or simply cosy up and stay warm in this whenever you need it.
Turn it into a set and pair it up with some white gloves with Aran patterns too.
That completes our round-up of our 5 favourite St. Patrick’s Day picks. Whatever you’re wearing, enjoy the day and have fun with your fashion choices. There are so many other fashion options that you can choose to add an Irish touch to your outfit - it could be a ‘Ireland’ hat, something sports-inspired such a Rugby shirt or just a fun accessory. The choice is yours!
