Can We All Acknowledge That Dressing Up for St. Patrick’s Day Is Fun?

There’s just something about a good theme that never fails to put us in a party mood. And while they range from general (like the 1980s) to hyper-specific (like Bridgerton), there’s no denying that the best themes center on calendar holidays. Sadly, though, St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t get as much love as it should. But rooting through our closets for the perfect hint of green to keep us from getting pinched, an excuse to believe in leprechauns, and a day where eating Lucky Charms is encouraged? St. Patty’s Day is definitely one to be celebrated. And we plan on doing just that—while wearing some seriously cute plus-size St. Patrick’s Day outfits.

The beauty of St. Patty’s Day is that there’s only one rule: Wear green. That’s it. That’s the Tweet. How you wear green (or how much of it you wear) is up to you—leaving us with an abundance of possibilities. You can go casual with a neon green crop top and joggers this year. Or, head to date night in a dark green blouse, jeans, and heels. Make it preppy with a green cardigan—or wear as little green as possible (just enough to ensure you don’t get pinched). There’s no wrong way to dress for this glorious, leprechaun-filled holiday.

So go ahead and admit it to yourself: Plus-size St. Patrick’s Day outfits are fun—and worth wearing throughout the rest of the year, too. Of course, to further prove it, we’ve crafted some delicious green ensembles for your perusal. From preppy to street style, there’s a little something for everyone this St. Patty’s.

Here at Unruly, we’re committed to featuring plus-size pieces we genuinely love and want to share with you.

1. The Lime Green Street Style Look

What happens when you pair a neon green crop top with ridiculously cozy joggers? You get the ideal St. Patrick’s Day street style outfit, obviously. Top it off with some bright green sunglasses (to complement the top!) and chunky sneakers. Honestly, you’ll probably want to wear this look year-round.

4. The “I Promise I’m Wearing Green” Outfit

Not into green? No problem. This holiday, go for a granny-chic patchwork tank (This one is made to order, BTW.) paired with straight jeans and sock booties. The top has the slightest bit of green—but you can also make sure you’re safe from pinching with a pair of chic green sunglasses, too.

5. The Pink & Green Combo

A green floral dress is a must-have—regardless of St. Patrick’s Day. It works great for the holiday, too, though. Make it a classic pink and green combination with a pink purse, pink and green phone case, and your comfiest pair of slide sandals. This is one ensemble you’ll want to wear again and again.
