Streetalk: How do you look sharp for St. Patty’s Day?

Jodi, Jill & Laura: The complimentary color for green is brown. Green is a loud color. Green muted or green loud is too much. I don’t care what color you are, green is not the best color for anybody. So go ahead and go crazy with the accessories. Belts, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, hair, eye shadow, shoes. Do a bright green for St. Patty's — it’s going to look tacky. Don’t get me wrong, we look stupid. But we wouldn’t look as stupid if we had green shirts and pants on. Too much green is too much.

Brendan: Try not to wear the goofy little antler thing with the shamrock or the green sunglasses. It's tacky and disrespectful to what the holiday is supposed to be. In Ireland, you go to church, maybe a couple of beers after mass, and then you go home. Just use taste, like a nice button-down green shirt. Don't show up wearing a shirt that says "Kiss me I'm Irish," because more than likely you're not. Throwing up, starting fist fights, basically acting like a jerk is not what it's about. And don’t wear orange.

Aryn: It’s the only time I don’t wear green. I love green. It’s my favorite. My eyes are green. If I wear green it makes them more green. All of my tattoos have green in them. Fifty percent of my clothing has green in it, if not all. But on St. Patrick’s Day, it’s just too much. I get into drinking, but just don’t want to wear the green like everyone else. So I wait till after St. Patrick’s Day to wear green again. And I still get pinched a lot and I don’t like it.
