Dearest Edit Seven readers, if you haven’t yet had the formidable pleasure of watching Lady Shonda Rhimes’ latest period drama, I implore you to make haste with your Netflix schedule. Especially in light of the tantalizing revelation that a sultry second season is underway. Okay, so Lady Whistedown I am not, but this I do know: Bridgerton is so much more than the biggest-ever debut for an original series on Netflix—it’s quickly becoming an entire cultural and fashion moment. 

Bridgerton has it all: scandal, sex, sumptuous banquets, Regé-Jean Page, tantalizing drama, Regé-Jean Page, sparkling tiaras, romance, decadency, and Regé-Jean Page. But if that (read: he) isn’t enough to pull you into the sumptuous world of Regency London, surely the costuming will. 

Now, the Regency period isn’t necessarily the first place you’d look for fashion inspo, but the genius of world-renowned custom designer Ellen Mirojnick has made it so. Much like the dynamic and diverse characters and reinvented classical-pop music of the show, Mirojnick recreated the traditional look and feel of a bygone era under a refreshed, modern mindset. The result? A glorious blend of billowy sleeves and ball gowns, petticoats and pastels, and lacey trims and tiaras. 

Following the show’s success, searches for items like corsets have jumped over 100 percent while TikTokers bonded through lockdown with their #BridgertonChallenge entries. It seems “Regencycore” is making its long, long, long-awaited comeback. So without further adieu, we’ve pulled together seven Bridgerton trends for you to try. Now you can live out an 1813s fashion moment of your own.

Corsets

Corsets put the core in #regencycore. And thankfully today’s versions are made with breathing and internal organs in mind.
