It’s St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, and to mark the occasion we’re pulling out all the stops to turn your friends ‘green’ with fashion envy (geddit?)! Selecting our top picks in the colour of choice to mark the date, green, we’ve put together three looks to suit every budget.
If you’re looking for a luxe affair when celebrating on Sunday, then the Splurge-athon edit will see to that.
For a high-low look, the Mix It Up edit is the answer to your sartorial prayers, meeting you in the middle when it comes to splashing the cash.

Mix it up
Mixing high and low brands is the way to channel an eclectic style without breaking the bank.

Cheap As Chips (well, sort of)
If you’re taking to the streets to see in St. Patricks day, then comfortable footwear is key.
