Go green this St. Patrick’s Day

Fashionable Lady in Green Dress on Venice Beach Boardwalk

Going green this St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t just mean making sure to recycle any beer bottles you see lying around after a party. Because I love any excuse for dressing up, naturally an excuse to rock green on St.Patty’s appeal to me. But there is no reason why I can’t still look amazing while doing so.

By the way - Tradition has it that wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns who might pinch you. Just be careful picking the green that looks good with your coloring. And though Ireland may be the Emerald Isle, but there are other green gemstones.  Which are you?

  • Emerald: This gemstone is bold and vibrant and the color looks best on dark brunettes/black hair, warm blondes, and those with warm/darker skin tones. Warm undertones generally have a yellow and gold tinge to them. Other colors that flatter your Emerald tone, are other vibrant greens such as Kelly green.

  • Jade: This stone often has a bluish tint.  You’re a jade if you’re fair and have a cool undertone (pinkish or bluish tint.)  You probably have ash blonde, grey, or platinum hair. Shades of green that will look good on a Jade woman, are pastels such as mint green.  Teal and forest green will also compliment your skintone.

  • Peridot: This gem is likely yellowish green and looks best on redheads and those with golden brown hair.  Olive green will look best on you.

Let Ireland keep their Blarney Stone while you opt for a more precious one.  Green is thought to attract growth in all areas including wealth, health and happiness.  Those strike me as better reasons to wear green than trying to avoid those nipping leprechauns.

    I’ve always loved green, it’s my favorite color. I didn’t know about that leprechaun pinching tradition, though. ha ha.

    Emerald is my birth stone and I have always liked wearing green even if it’s not St. Patrick’s Day. By the way, you look so beautiful with your green ensemble, Heidi!

    That’s certainly a beautiful green outfit Heidi. You look great!

  • Misty Dew says:

    Admittedly, I’ve always avoided wearing green because I thought the color makes me look like Kermit the Frog. But I realized, there’s a whole lot of shades of green and it’s high time I sort them out to see which one suits me better. Thanks for sharing your green style guide 🙂

  • Nikki says:

    Oh green actually looks perfect in you Heidi!

  • Richelle L. says:

    There are those kinds of green that looks on you, there are those shades that simply would make you look like a Christmas Tree. I think the best to do is know your complexion and be aware of the shade that better complements your coloring. Just sharing.

    As per tradition, I went green last St. Pat’s Day and so far, so good. I loved the shade of green (a little bit of cyan, actually) on my skin. But yours looked much nicer than mine.

  • Mikaella says:

    Hmm, I’m fond of green color because somehow I find it really refreshing and relaxing to the eyes. I don’t need St. Patrick’s Day to wear it.

  • Leigh Curtis says:

    Those earrings are divine, Heidi, I actually love it! Went well with your gorgeous dress 🙂

  • Nadine says:

    Wow, you look great in all colors! I thought red is your color, but you look divine even more in green!

  • Desiree Lynch says:

    Looks like Jade is my color. I love that shade of green with bluish hue. I’ve tried wearing that color before and it definitely suit my complexion.

  • Rachel Kaye says:

    I have always loved the color green, but it seems to look better on your Heidi. You’re so beautiful!

  • Sharlyn Harris says:

    oh my Heidi, you look like a goddess!
