In Chicago the Chicago River is dyed green for the holiday! St. Patrick s Day is a fun holiday filled with friends food and drinking. Not to mention a lot of green. If you have St. Patrick s Day parties or get together coming up for this holiday or want to plan ahead on what to wear here are a few ideas to make the your holiday clothing as festive as the rest of the day. Of course you will want to go all green. That great thing about this holiday is that just about every store you go to now has t-shirts shorts skirts pants and accessories to dress yourself up with.
There is also the option of decorating shirts and clothing with gold and silver glitter. Get a plain green t-shirt tank top dress whatever you would like to wear and add your design to it. Painting on shamrocks or pots of gold or even the words Happy St. Patrick s Day. Not to mention rainbows with pots of gold also. Br creative and add all sorts of flair to any green outfit you come up with. Don t forget to paint your face as well to go with the entire outfit you have created.
