Some holidays are meant for spending time with family. Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter all call up memories of little cousins and silly aunts fighting over the drumsticks. However, every now and then, there comes a holiday that seems to be specifically designed for the college student. Since it’s not October, I must be talking about St. Patrick’s Day! An excuse to drink, dance, dress-up, and generally partake in good old-fashioned college revelry. Here are three St. Patrick’s Day outfits for different occasions, with a drink selection to match! Choosing your outfit now will help to get you in the mood. Only a few weeks to go!

1. Colourful Casual

Even if you’re having a more laid-back St. Patrick’s Day, or you’re just not one for outrageous outfits, you can incorporate a little bit ‘o the Irish into your wardrobe for one day to enjoy the celebrations. The pop of green and the accessories make it festive, while the boyfriend shirt, leather belt, and worn-wash jeans give it a more relaxed feel.

2. Green Glam

If you’re in the mood for getting deck-out but still want to feel in the St. Patrick’s spirit, here is the perfect outfit for you. The dress is a little unexpected so you can stand out, even when everyone is wearing green. The tights actually have little flecks of gold shimmer in them, which pick up on the outrageous shoes (but hey, when else can you get away with wearing those bad boys?) The headband is playful and the clutch it understated enough to pull it all together. Totally eye-catching and fun.

3. Costume Crazy

If you’re really in the mood to dress-up, your best bet is a costume. You can either pick up a store-bought one at a costume shop or sexy shop (like the one pictured below), or look at the elements of a typical costume and fashion your own (like I’ve done here). Just be sure to take lots of pictures and have a very Irish evening!

Drink: Green beer (of course!) (image source)

    Cute outfit ideas! I love the reasonably classy embellishments – most of the St. Patrick’s day accessories are cheap and plastic! The clover studded ear-rings and gold shoes could be worn all year long, which seems like a much better investment for any college girl.

    this is absolutely adorable :)
    i lovee♥ everything here. the laid back one is super cute and definitely what I’m doing, even though the dress or costume is more me.. I’m thinking the pubs we’ll be at wouldn’t be able to handle all that sparkle hehe.
    good work doll! xoxo
