St. Patrick’s Day is a festive holiday for many involving drinking with friends and family. Don’t be afraid to dress up and show off your holiday spirit with these ideas that you can do yourself or find at a local retail outlet.
Green and Gold
The easiest way to dress up for this holiday is to raid your closet and wear any green and/or gold clothing that you own. Also, consider borrowing and trading items with friends and family. St. Patrick themed or green and gold ties, belts, bows, and tights are all options that you might consider asking around for.
Kiss Me I’m Irish
For the flirtier individual of Irish descent, a Kiss me I’m Irish T-shirt is a fool-proof way to go. You can find these shirts in almost any major retail store, usually with an assortment of other St. Patrick’s Day themed apparel for women, men and children of all ages.
Bag of Gold
Costume shops are a great place to look for this costume, as are online retailers.
To make this costume at home, cut the bottom out of a plastic cauldron or pot, big enough for the wearer to fit through and attach a pair of suspenders to keep it up. Wear a gold or yellow top.
This is easily one of the most popular ways to dress up for the holiday. Costume shops and online retailers are also a great place to look for pre-made costumes. It’s still possible to create these costumes by DIY.
Ladies can outfit themselves in items like a green dress, black belt around the waist, white stockings, black shoes, leprechaun hat.
Men can don a green suit, and hat to keep things simple, or pick up more items from a costume shop, such as knee high pants, a leprechaun hat, a fake beard(if he doesn’t have one already),
St. Patrick Himself
While technically aimed at men, there is no reason ladies can’t dress up as the Saint the holiday is named after. Once again, a costume shop is the easiest way to go, but looking at some pictures of pre-made costumes is a great way to gain ideas on how to construct your own costume.
