St. Patrick's Day Clothes For Under $50 (PHOTOS)


St. Patrick's Day is less than a week away. That means in a few days the streets are going to be filled with hordes of drunk people wearing mardi gras beads and four leaf-clovers. Even though the sight of a leprechaun top hat is enough to make anyone sick to their stomach, going out on this holiday and and not wearing green makes you a certified grinch. (Come to think of it, if you were to go as the actual Grinch you'd be quite appropriately dressed...)

Why not make 2013 the year you invest in some St. Paddy's duds? If you're smart, you can pick an item that fits in your wardrobe everyday of the year, not just Mar.17. We've gathered 11 affordable pieces (all under $50) that are perfect for a day of drinking and chanting... and for all those other days when public intoxication and eating green stuff aren't on the agenda.
