Inspired by Bloom, here are 10 of the best floral pieces to shop now

Inspired by Bloom, here are 10 of the best floral pieces to shop now

Ireland’s largest garden festival, Bloom 2019, will take place over the weekend with over 120,000 people expected to descend on the Phoenix Park over five days. With everyone suffering from a case of floral fever and going wild for everything in bloom, we decided to take a look at some of the best floral offerings you can buy right now in the sartorial sense.

As Miranda Priestly once said, florals for spring isn’t exactly groundbreaking, but they are visually appealing and can brighten the dullest of days. And florals are once again everywhere from high fashion to high street.

Louis Vuitton did it this season in a pair of dungarees, Valentino was ultra-feminine with large flowers in colour block shades, while Versace was loud and proud and Simone Rocha did it through the beauty of a tapestry style print.

On the high street, Zara is the pinnacle of floral madness this season with some beautiful Zimmerman-esque offerings on show. H&M is ethereal and whimsical, while & Other Stories is a modern day version of House on the Prairie.

Don’t be afraid of florals if you aren’t too inclined towards a girly look. Florals look divine when paired with leather and combat style boots, but are equally beautiful when styled with strappy heels and dainty accessories.

Here are ten blooming lovely pieces you can buy now
