Go all out with green on green

If you’re feeling bold this St. Patrick’s Day, why not wear all green? Wearing one color in several tones from head to toe, also known as monochromatic dressing, is a rising trend and St. Patrick’s Day is a perfect occasion to try it out. When shopping at Goodwill, look for separate pieces, such as a blouse, skirt or pants, and a jacket, in different shades of green. Break up the monochromatic look with accessories in neutral colors. Gold, black, and white all pair nicely with just about any shade of green.

Stay subtle with an olive green hue

Wearing a bright shade of green isn’t for everyone. If you’re looking to celebrate the holiday in a more subtle way, select clothing in a different tone of green such as olive, jade, or sage green. With a huge inventory of clothing that’s updated every day, Goodwill makes it easy to find blouses, jackets, sweaters, pants, and dresses in all shades of green. You can always incorporate these stylish pieces into your everyday wardrobe after the holiday is over.


Give a pop of green with your accessories

Accessories are a great way to incorporate some color into an otherwise neutral outfit. Look for a green scarf or green necklace to add a pop of color to a simple black dress or sweater. Goodwill has a great selection of accessories to choose from, including jewelry, scarves, hats, and handbags. You might be surprised at how many green pieces you see once you start looking for the color!
