If you haven’t yet binged Netflix’s newest historical-romance, Shonda Rhimes' adaptation of Julia Quinn’s novels Bridgerton, (seriously, what have you been doing instead!?)—you might be confused by the sudden collective obsession with Regency-era style.
Thanks to the endlessly memorable fashion moments—think puffy sleeves, bosom-showcasing necklines, corsets, empire-line dresses, lavish headpieces, crystal necklaces, and more—the show has quickly spawned a movement towards more decadent dressing, cementing TV's mega influence over fashion right now.
In fact, the weeks following Bridgerton’s Netflix debut were directly correlated with a surge in internet searches for Regency-inspired pieces. According to a new report from Lyst, the show caused a significant lift in popularity for the era's fashion, thus coining the new term “Regencycore”.
While we’re not yet convinced we’ll be rocking corsets, crowns, or elbow-length gloves on the daily, we’re just enjoying the opportunity to expand with our fashion repertoire and escape our soft-pant prison—temporarily, at least!
Luckily, dear reader, there are plenty of brands at our disposal ready to cater to all our whimsical wardrobe needs. Keep reading below for 22 Bridgerton-inspired, Daphne-approved pieces perfect for wearing to your next societal debut.
