St. Patrick’s Day is here, but are you one that dresses in green for this holiday? According to some accounts, blue was the first color associated with St. Patrick’s Day, but that started to change in the 17th century. Green is one of the colors in Ireland’s tri-color flag, and it has been used in the flags of several Irish revolutionary groups throughout history. Ireland is the “Emerald Isle,” so named for its lush green landscape. The color green is not only part of this month’s holiday, but it’s this year’s color (2017) according to Pantone.
Every March 17, we break out every piece of green clothing and jewelry and shamrock-shaped pins to participate in this holiday and hopes to not get “pinched”. For me I like to add a pop of green into my outfits to show my fun and creative side. So this year I have created three outfits from my closet that may inspire you when it comes to getting dressed this Friday or for your next St. Patty’s Day soirée!
First outfit: Cabi http://www.cabionline.com Green Printed Business blouse paired with Cabi’s black leather skirt and a long silver necklace with black circles from the The Limited.
Second outfit: Ralp Lauren http://www.ralphlauren.com dress navy and green color blocking detail. I also added the Stella & dot https://www.stelladot.com/ Gold Frindge necklace.
Third outfit: A sleeveless olive green blouse (monteau Los Angelas) with a black zipper detail in the front and I paired with (Cabi) boyfriend jeans and a (Kate Spade) women’s black and white Carolyn Striped Crossbody https://www.katespade.com/ . I also added a Steve Madden http://www.stevemadden.com black peep toe bootie (Nubuck upper material) with a block heel.
“Fashions fade. Style is eternal.” Those are the words from the famous designer Yves Saint Laurent. Trends come and trends go, but being stylish has real staying power!
On Monday, March 13th Fashionality hosted a workshop on Style and Wardrobe where we discussed 3 tips to Developing Personal Style. These ladies enjoyed themselves and learned something too. We took a clothing personality quiz which helped them to understand their style and a start to building a new wardrobe. I would like to thank all the ladies that attended and Tasha Myers for finding the venue for us. It was a evening of fun, fashion and making connections! Stay tuned to the next event!
