9 to 5 Style: St. Patrick’s Day Green

Welcome to 9 to 5 Style! The third  Monday of every month Jennie of A Pocketful of Polka Dots and I will showcase a theme featuring our individual takes on a professional look. Our aim is to inspire and show professional style does not have to mean boring and without personality. We hope you enjoy our 9 to 5 Style!

This month Jennie chose St. Patrick’s Day as our theme. Everyone knows that you have to wear green or you will get pinched. Folklore says green makes you invisible to leprechauns who like to pinch people, so by wearing green you can avoid getting pinched. Wearing green is also a way to honor Ireland, the Emerald Isle. So how do you wear green to work without looking like a leprechaun?

Skip the green top hat, but don any shade or office appropriate garment in green you can find. Green signifies growth, renewal, and nurturing. Green can be a positive color to wear. All shades (except neon) can be office appropriate.

Here are nine ways to wear green to work for St. Patrick’s Day and for the spring season.
