Find your perfect shade of green to wear on St. Patrick's Day



It's St. Patrick's Day tomorrow, so you better wear something green or you'll get pinched! Not everyone can carry off the shamrock green associated with St. Paddy's, but there is a shade of green for everyone. Color consultant Jill Kirsh, "Hollywood's Guru of Hue," has suggestions on which green is right for you, which she bases on hair color. Find your celebrity doppelganger below to learn which green to go with.

While golden browns like Jennifer Lopez or redheads like Emma Stone can easily pull off a variety of greens, olive is the most flattering for those tones, according to Kirsh.

Now that you've found your ideal hue, you're St. Paddy's Day ready. And you don't have to lie and say that you're wearing green underwear to avoid getting pinched.

Jill Kirsh moved to Tampa Bay from Los Angeles, where she was named Best Color Consultant by Los Angeles Magazine.  If you're interested in finding out more about Jill Kirsh's color system, visit
