Saint Patrick’s Day is about so much more than pub crawls and boiled meat: it’s an opportunity to sartorially one-up our peers (but, for the record, we'll still take the beer and boiled meat) that should be taken advantage ofWe don't know about you, but it feels like every year we reach for the same green blouse or nail-polish come March 17th – so, this time, we've prepared five unique styling tips ahead of time to help us stand out in a crowd of shamrock headbands, and put Jessica’s "Kiss Me, I’m Irish" t-shirt to shame. Celtic gods permitting, this is your chance to Lord-of-the-Dance your way into #ootd history. 
 
Here are 5 fashionable ways to make a statement this Saint Patrick's Day, complete with shoppable suggestions (but you'll have to get your own boiled meet. Sorry):

There’s nothing more Irish than a nice, rattlin' bog – and the bodies that time has inadvertently preserved inside them. Layer distressed, earth-toned athleisure basics together to get a look that says, "I've been on the DL in a woebegone bog since 362 B.C., what of it?" Very Yeezy.

No one specified what kind of gold is at the end of the rainbow, so we’re declaring it Versace. Go big on the bling this St. Patty's Day with a golden, high-shine boot. And why limit yourself to wearing gold, when you can literally radiate it from the inside out with dental jewelry from brands like Twinkles.

Author James Joyce (1882-1941) was arguably Ireland’s greatest export; his novels Ulysses, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and the deliciously confusing Finnegans Wake might have puzzled the hell out of us in high school, but they also gave us sentences like, "the sea, the snotgreen sea, the scrotumtightening see!" Aside from his peculiar writing style, Joyce had a taste for classy tweed blazers, felt hats and, of course, those now-iconic round glasses.

Pastel eyeshadow is having a moment (looking at you, Margiela) and we love the idea of using this holiday as an excuse to test a new, trending beauty look. Contrastingly, if you're looking for a night-time appropriate shade we suggest smudging some deep, emerald green across your lids for a Saint-Laurent-meets-Saint-Patrick aesthetic.

The mythology at the root of the holiday tells the story of how a teenage Patrick banished all the snakes from Ireland (no chill, Pat), so we thought we'd make amends for his very bro-ey attitude by wearing some faux-snakeskin pieces.
