The only thing more fun than dressing up for St. Patrick’s Day is dressing up your little ones for this fun holiday. You can go all out and dress your child in head-to-toe green (which has to be done masterfully, as to not resemble a leprechaun), or you can choose a look that’s more subtle, with just touches of green.
If you’re on a limited fashion budget, you can avoid buying something that will only have one use by passing over the kitch tees. Most of the looks we pulled together can be worn all year- round because of their classic cuts, colors, and lack of four-leaf clovers. Even better, you might be able to find these pieces already in your little’s closet. Since the “Kiss Me I’m Irish” tee doesn’t say anything about St. Patrick’s Day, it could, arguably, be worn after the holiday too.
Another thing to be aware of is the color tone. If kelly green isn’t flattering on your little one, you might want to think about putting it on the bottom half of their look or choosing a different shade, like a mint or evergreen.
To help visually show some helpful tips, we asked a few of our favorite stylish moms to give us their pointers, including Reachel Bagley of Cardigan Empire, Alex of AVE Styles, and Breanne of Red Poppy Photography. Click through the slideshow below to see how they dress their kids for St. Patty’s Day and get some fun ideas on how to dress your kids.
St. Patrick’s Day Fashion 1 of 9
"I love having my two sons match, and we picked these bold black and white tees to balance their bright green bottoms. It keeps their outfits modern." — Summer Bellessa of The Girls with Glasses Show
Green Dress 2 of 9
Reachel Bagley of Cardigan Empire put together this charming outfit. Green is the focal color, but the red, pink, yellow and blue hues work because they compliment each other. I love when color combos aren't typical.
Green Tee 3 of 9
"To avoid making this T-shirt look cheesy, we paired it with a striped cardigan and cuffed navy chinos. Another green little touch are the WE Project pins; they add a little whimsy and they're for a good cause." — Summer Bellessa of The Girls with Glasses
Green Sweater 4 of 9
"Green is my favorite color and this kelly green sweater from GAP is the perfect shade for fair skin. In general, I love cardigans for kids! They not only keep your kiddos warm, but they quickly make your child's outfit look put-together. Plus, if your son or daughter is a messy eater, they serve as the perfect stain coverup." — Alex of AVEStyles.com
Green Sweatshirt 5 of 9
Reachel Bagley's kids are adorable, which is no surprise if you are familiar with her blog Cardigan Empire. She's a fashion blogger that always looks perfect but she's practical, too. She dressed little Levi in a comfy green sweatshirt, which proves you don't have to dress up to impress.
Green Tights 6 of 9
This is Dylan, Breanne of Red Poppy Photography's daughter. Her cute little pixie-cut was a beautiful accident when she decided to give herself a little trim. Not only is the haircut stylish but the green tights with this outfit couldn't be any cuter.
Green Shorts 7 of 9
"This adorable, blue-eyed baby is Phoenix, and I dressed him in a pair of kelly green shorts. Since we live in Arizona right now, they're the perfect choice to keep him cool and cute. I paired it with this graphic black and white tee and black shoes. It's festive without looking like a leprechaun." — Summer Bellessa of The Girls with Glasses
