20 St. Patricks Day Outfits for a Lil' Leprechaun

Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day. No matter where on the map our family comes from, for one day in March, it's fun to deck ourselves in green and get into the fun of the holiday. 

For adults, that might mean wearing a green shirt and having some corned beef with soda bread. For kids, it likely means passing up the corned beef in favor of mac and cheese, setting the all-important leprechaun trap (this year's gonna be the year we catch one, I feel it), and of course, wearing a festive St. Patrick's Day outfit. 

But what is a St. Patrick's Day outfit, exactly? Sure, pulling one of the baby's green Christmas outfits from the pile that still hasn't made its way to the attic and calling it a day is totally an option. But for those who want a true St. Patrick's Day look, we've got you covered. 

Big kids still love to go all out for holidays, which is why it's so fun to get on board with that enthusiasm and get them a special St. Patrick's Day shirt to wear to school. From fun graphic T-shirts for little boys who aren't too cool to dress up to rainbow leggings for active little girls, we've got options that will stand out on the playground in a sea of everyone else's green. 

Toddlers and babies look adorable no matter what they're wearing, but one of the perks of being a parent is being able to dress them up in cute outfits of our choosing. They get to wake us up at all hours of the night demanding food and snuggles, we get to pick their pants. It's a fair trade. 

From over-the-top ensembles perfect for a full-blown St. Patrick's Day photo shoot to subtler green options that can be worn all year and by multiple siblings, we've gathered 20 adorable St. Patrick's Day looks for tiny leprechauns. Grab the little lucky charms and pick a favorite for them to wear. 

  • Footed Onesie


    Searching for a St. Patrick's Day look that baby can wear forever (or at least until he grows out of it)? This cozy footed onesie is patterned in shamrocks, rainbows, and horseshoes for plenty of luck, but still neutral enough to wear all season. Bonus: It can be saved for a younger sibling of either gender.

  • First St. Patrick's Day Photo Outfit for Girls


    For those of us who just can't resist dressing our baby girl up as a living doll, her first St. Patrick's Day wouldn't be complete without this over-the-top outfit. Why choose between leggings, a tutu and a headband when she can wear all three?

  • Plaid Pants & Bow Tie Set


    A big slow clap to Target for this totes adorbs two-piece St. Patrick's Day look that stands out from all the lime green going on. The sweater is actually a separate bodysuit, so that diaper will stay covered. Pair it with some jeans and it's a completely new outfit.

  • Pinch Charming Outfit


    Not sure what's more adorable here, the fact that this onesie says "Pinch" Charming instead of Prince Charming, or that this outfit comes with teeny sweats to match his mom's hanging-around-the-house pants. Either way, adding to my cart.

  • St. Patrick's Day Pullover


    Although St. Patrick's Day is in March, all the green decor distracts us from the fact that it's still freezing in many parts of the country. This super cute pullover will keep kids warm without having to pull on a sweater. Anyone else getting awesome Rainbow Brite vibes?
