The best holiday of the year is right around the corner! For most Irish dancers, it means a whirlwind of shows with Worlds practice shoved into the cracks in between. From nursing homes to early morning news rooms, Irish dancers are running all over town in March. With all that going on, your outfit is probably the last thing on your mind!
Never fear. Feisonista is here to help simplify your life and give you one less thing to worry about.
1. The “Radio Show to School to Nursing Home to Eileen Ivers” kind of a day:
It’s your typical Irish dancer’s St. Patrick’s Day. Running all over town from one show to the next while trying to go to class in between. For the Irish dancer who does everything, you need an outfit that’s easy and comfortable (when you’re 5 minutes late for a show you need a quick change!) but still looks put together. You never know who will be at the TV studio!
Black skinny jeans are easy to slide on and off. Pair it with a cami that you can wear under your dress and top it all off with an easy to remove (but extremely chic) sheer button down. If you’re de-wigging in between, keep it simple with a ponytail or try for a natural show look! Finish the look off with easy ballet flats or some boots. Bonus with the boots? You can keep your poodle socks on!
2. The off-duty dancer’s St. Patrick’s Day
So, you’ve done your dues and you’re off the St. Patrick’s Day show train. You’re off to enjoy the festivities, but chances are you’re still going to be dancing. Can you imagine hearing a reel around town and not joining in with an improptu step about? I thought so.
You want something relatively loose, definitely cute but not something that’s going to reveal more than you’d like.
Try this green dress on for size. The kelly green color screams St. Patrick’s Day. Keep it your killer treble reel PG by pairing it with black tights. Brown leather boots complete the outfit, will add some nice sound and will keep your feet comfortable all day long. Finish the look off with some St. Patrick’s Day accesories. Show off your Irish dance swag with some ghillie necklaces, your festive spirit with some shamrock earrings and you’re sweet style with a green bow for your hair. Bonus points? Curl your hair for a sublte nod to your Irish dancing roots.
3. The St. Patrick’s Day Gala
Going to a fancy gala for your local Irish Society this St. Patrick’s Day? I’m jealous. The key here is to remain festive while looking elegant. You want to avoid the costume jewelry that are normal derigeor for St. Patrick’s Day and stick to classic pieces.
Try this elegant green cocktail dress. Pair it with some claddagh earings and elegantly styled hair. Finish the look off by finding your pot of gold with these pair of gold shoes!
