Smarter Style: Green is your color

This Sunday is St. Patrick's Day, folks...now, I'm not Irish, well, maybe one-36th of me is, somewhere on my dad's side. The fabulous thing about St. Patty's Day is you don't really have to be Irish to partake in the fun. Go ahead -- add that green food coloring to the pancakes, do an Irish jig down the sidewalk and of course, don something green. Although my closet is mainly full of blacks, whites and greys, I do happen to have a couple of items with a splash of green. But, you know I'm always on the lookout, surfing about, scouring for fun, green-hued goodies.


Check out this wrap dress from the Sofia Vergara collection at Kmart. Not all green, but green enough to pass the test, I believe. And the wrap dress style looks fabu on almost every body type.


Sure, it's a green shirt, but it's not your average green shirt -- check out the cool textured effect with the tone-on-tone dots. If it's too much green, just toss a cardigan over it. Grab it at the Gap.


These skimmers in green are so cool...wear them now with an ivory sweater and boots and then toss on your white tank top and sandals in the summer. Also from the Gap.


Who doesn't love to toss on a long cozy sweater? Right, we all do -- and what else is snugglier that the Gabrielle Rocha one I found at 6pm.com?


Don't want to do a major green fest? Then stick with a normal outfit and just pop this striped scarf over your head. Done and done...and so cute from ae.com.


Don't want to even bother with any sort of green clothing? No problem. Swipe some Emerald onto your nails and still be part of the Irish fun. It's at Sephora.

Do you wear green on St. Patrick's Day? Do your kids wear it to school?
