St Patricks Day Fever – get ready to dress green!

Last year parties erupted worldwide for St Patricks Day with major cities also jumping at the chance to celebrate the occasion by lighting up their famous landmarks in Green. In London, we enjoyed an all day festival in Trafalgar Square after the famous St Patricks Day Parade where thousands of Londoners came to the streets dressed in their finest green attire. This year the parade returns on 15th March starting at Piccadilly Circus at Midday moving towards Trafalgar Square and ending in Whitehall. The theme this year is World of Dance, so expect lots of Irish dancing and lots of traditional Irish folk music. 
Need some ideas for your outfit this year? We love this hilarious Sheamus Craic Costume from 'Fancy Dress Ball' complete with green tailored jacket with orange detail and a mock Shamrock waistcoat. A foam bottom is attached to the cropped trousers making this outfit fun yet cheeky. Teamed with a pair of green striped socks, a green top hat and a ginger beard we think this is a great outfit for just £26. As the Irish are famous for their Guinness, dress like a pint with the 'hoptastic' Paddy's Draught Costume available from Escapade for £23. If you want a smarter look then the Shamrock Stand Out suit is the perfect option – a bright green two piece suit and tie covered in the Irish symbol of good fortune available at for £45. Also on the Joke website we love the Second Skin green jumpsuit which can be combined with a Leprechaun hat and beard available for £25.
For the ladies, we’ve found a Sexy Female Leprechaun outfit by FunShack including dress covered in clover leaves with cute cap sleeves, hat and green stripe hold ups. All you need to do is accessorise with a pot of gold! We also like the Green Beer Girl outfit consisting of a black lace up bustier with green skirt and small French maid style apron. White stockings and a beer tankard are optional but the tankard might come in handy for the Trafalgar Square festival. Available on ebay for around £20 search Women's Sexy Beer Girl Green Fancy Dress.

Wanting to just wear accessories? Head to Angels website and check out the Leprechaun top hat with large ears for £10 or the Irish hat with beard for just £5!
