10 Ways to Wear Green on St. Patrick’s Day

There is perhaps no more annoying day on the calendar for anyone who cares about their style than St. Patrick’s Day. After all, who wants to have their outfit dictated to them by a holiday that features drunken frat bros and office colleagues who think it’s socially acceptable to pinch people? And yet, wear green you must, lest you be pinched by said office colleagues and frat bros. Fortunately, there is a stylish way to do it. The key is to not go overboard. From sneakers to chinos, here are 10 green pieces of clothing that won’t have people thinking you’re hiding your lucky charms.
