Happy St. Patrick's Day! While the occasion honours the death of Saint Patrick, the foremost patron saint of the nation of Ireland, it has become better known as a day of boundless revelry, excessive drinking, and (yes) wearing the colour green, an homage to the shamrock Saint Patrick used to teach the Holy Trinity to the pagan Irish around 400 A.D.
It's also now tradition to pinch someone who's not wearing said shade—whether one opts for something as small as a pocket square or as festive as a monochromatic outfit, sporting the colour green has essentially become mandatory on St. Patrick's Day. While you may not think of the hue as the most flattering, it happens to be on-trend for spring, and there are tons of stylish options out there to spruce up your St. Patty's Day look.
