Look smokin' for patrick
Why not dress the part this St Patrick’s Day and do it in style! The pieces I have chosen are basically a modern twist on the classic green & gold – 2017 calls for olive green & rose gold.
I love the way olive green looks on all skin tones and having those rose gold accents in an outfit really complements the look as a whole! The satin & metallic textures within this outfit really work well for a night time glam look. The reflective surfaces from the clutch, bangle & heels really pop in this outfit. And by pairing them with satin it will have everyone doing the double take when you walk in the room simply gleaming with light!
Making sure the nails are matching and are in theme is the key to having your outfit flow. Many forget to pay attention to the smaller details but those details are the difference between an outfit looking complete or being a complete fail!
Always mix & match and be sure to carefully plan your looks whether your focus is on a statement piece of jewellery, a wow-factor pair of pumps or a pop of colour from your lipstick – be creative because what you wear is an expression of your personality!
Now I know not many people would gravitate to an army green lippy – but I urge you to step out of your comfort zone and give this baby a try! Believe it or not – this Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick in colour ‘Dirty Money’ actually looks ah-mazing on fair skin, olive skin and even deep skin tones.
And I know, you’re probably thinking, who would wear a cap during the evening?… Well for one, this cap is a stylish one with no branding and totally covered in that gorgeous satin finish. Two, the cap is a modern take on the St Patrick’s Irish Leprechaun hat (it’s much more stylish if you ask me!). And lastly, you only have to hop on Instagram, or walk into your local fashion boutique to see that silk/leather/suede/denim caps are totally on trend right now.
Everyone from Rihanna to Kylie Jenner is rocking a cap, and is not limited to only rocking it with sportswear – but also with evening wear!
