March has arrived and what a better way to begin the month than with a St. Patrick’s Day Parade and a round up of the best in St. Patrick’s Day style. One of my favorite St. Patrick’s Day Parades is in the hometown of Martha Stewart, Nutley, New Jersey.Yes, can you believe Martha is a Jersey Girl? This quaint picturesque slice of suburbia is near to New York City yet maintains a small town ambiance throughout its quiet, tree lined streets. This parade is sponsored by the Nutley Irish American Alliance and pictured here is the very talented Essex County Emeralds Society Pipes and Drum Band. Parades are a perfect place for “people watching” and for spotting St. Patrick’s Day style, plain and simple its all about the green. Below; is an easy to create look using a basic legging from your closet and pairing it with a green blouse, toss in anything emerald from your jewelry box and a metallic clutch to complete the look.
Even if you are not Irish join in the fun and pull out those green sweaters. My favorite colors to pair with kelly green, in fashion and interior design, are navy blue and brown. My personal style pick for St. Patrick’s Day is a fabulous green and navy sweater, preppy with a touch of bling. Further below; green Hunter Boots, inspiration from Ireland and The Duchess of Cambridge looking lovely in her emerald green wool dress. Get inspired and go green, it is the color of the year you know.
