It is quickly becoming an annual tradition to dress up for St. Patrick’s Day. Schools and offices are now accepting holiday themed costumes being worn on St. Patrick’s Day. The most interesting costumes now come with St Patrick’s Day stockings. Stockings can be casually worn under work attire to be seen only under the pants legs or with a full costume of a barmaid or leprechaun.
Stockings add excitement to an otherwise normal costume. Adding a pair of shamrock stockings under an everyday black dress or skirt can take a girl from the office to a hot party in just a few moments. There are even thigh high stockings for adult only parties where you are looking for a sexier look. These will definitely get the attention of every man in the room.
Putting stockings with a child’s costume not only finishes out the look, but also adds warmth. Often when we are dressing in costume, we are so busy looking at the style and shock factor that we forget about temperature of where we will be. March weather is unpredictable, so wearing tights will make sure little legs do not get cold.
Leprechaun costumes for children are very popular. There are general leprechauns or the ever popular “Lucky the Leprechaun” who is famous for being the spokesman for General Mill’s Lucky Charm cereal. Whichever you choose, your child will feel part of the festivities.
So as you are costume shopping, don’t forget to consider St. Patrick’s Day stocking for adults as well as St. Patrick’s Day stocking for the children. It will help get you into a festive spirit. It will definitely draw attention your way. And it will probably get you an invitation to next year’s party. So dress up! Have fun! And enjoy the holiday in the traditional Irish way, stockings and all.
