Stylish Ways To Wear Green For St. Patrick's Day

 In Style

For the past couple months, photographer Phil Oh has scouted the streets of Milan, Paris, Copenhagen and New York for the best street style looks at fashion weeks and the couture shows. In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we rounded up several exemplary ways to wear green from this cast of street style stars.


While androgynous dressing might be considered a social statement, topping your ensemble off with a iridescent shade is certainly a declaration of color. At Paris Fashion Week and Milan Fashion Week, suiting separates stood out in unique hues. For those in search of a more subtle way to sport the look, wear the jacket or trousers separately paired with neutral accessories.


Wild prints made an audacious appearance on the streets of New York Fashion Week and the Paris Couture shows. Adorning fur, bouclé and cotton trench, these patterns created a kaleidoscope of visual interest that popped amid winter neutrals. From jumbo florals to hexagonal tessellations to leopard print, there was a design for every taste.

For those favoring a shorter, relaxed fit jacket over the classic overcoat, these cropped numbers might be for you. Seen at Copenhagen Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week respectively, both offer an updated take on traditionally utilitarian camo.


Taking a step away from the all-over green of spring coats, these verdant-hued images suggest that it’s time to ditch neutral accessories. Whether an accented handbag or fearlessly dyed hair, snaps from New York Fashion Week prove that green looks good on more than spring grass.
