When you want to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, the first thing you've got to do is dress in something green, lest ye be pinched mercilessly. The shade of green should be as close to a shamrock as possible. If you have the means to station yourself beneath a natural gleaming rainbow, that's all the better. Got a pot of gold? You'll need that too. But you're not done yet! No Leprechaun should face the day alone, so you need a date for the pub crawl, or the limerick contest, or the annual pouring of emerald green dye into the river. We put our Leprechaun caps on and came up with these gorgeous couples costume ideas for St. Patrick's Day. We hope they help you have a shamrockin' good time, and get you enormously lucky!
Leprechauns are quite dapper, despite their typical illustration of being crazy, maniacal, and a red-haired menace. These two costumes are labelled the Lucky Lass and the Lucky Lad, and they look quite sophisticated, yet ready to party. There's nothing wrong with being classy on St. Patrick's Day. Sip that green beer, good sir! When someone comments on the shine radiating from your boot buckles reply in your best Irish accent, "Slainte!"
If the whole dapper look isn't for you or your partner, then how about our Drunk 1 and Drunk 2 t-shirts? They're bright green, and hilariously reference the classic children's literature characters that we all remember and enjoy. We like to think that these are for the realist couple, for the couple who likes to be open and honest, for the couple who wears their intentions on their sleeve, or in this case, on the front of their t-shirts. The best part? They match the copious amounts of green beer you'll be consuming! And when you eventually write and recite that epic Limerick in front of the whole pub crowd, these t-shirts just might give you the edge over that guy who wins every year because he can speak Gaelic and grow those naturally red mutton chops. Curse you, mutton chops guy! This is our year!
Leprechauns only come out around St. Patrick's Day, right? No, that's just not true! You can enjoy a Leprechaun's treasures all year round when you pour yourself a big bowl of Lucky Charms cereal! Stars, moons, balloons, horseshoes, rainbows, hearts, pots of gold... they're all here. Lucky here seems overjoyed that he was paired up with a lovely rainbow, and together, they're magically delicious, just like the cereal. The only problem with wearing this ensemble is that you'll have people coming up to you constantly pretending that they're after your 'lucky charms.' We recommend you make little baggies of marshmallow bits to hand out, just so they'll leave you alone. On the plus side, you'll probably make their St. Patrick's Day that much more special.
We end with yet another classy look that's perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Why is it perfect? First,obviously because of the various beautiful shades of green, but beyond that it's an unexpected look. Everyone knows the Leprechaun, but the flapper? That's thinking outside the box, lass! We also really like the green bowler hat, because it's perfect for tipping at your admirers. There's likely very few big band concerts scheduled for March seventeenth, but these costumes look just as great moving to an Irish jig, of which there will be many. Will you be cold? Probably. But will you be the best looking couple out there on St. Patrick's Day? Yes, without a doubt.
