Hello there 🙂
If you've seen recently Bridgerton and are at the height of exquisite fashion and slow burning romances, then welcome to the world of escapism which is historical dramas. Stories like Pride and prejudice, Emma, and Little woman I have always comforted films because they created a world I could jump into when I needed a break from reality.
The rules and order of the times aren't exactly exacting, but it's the almost-expected storylines and exaggerated costumes that set it apart from the majority of entertainment today. It was only recently that I realized that a myriad of fashion trends that featured frequently in films of the time are making their way into the mainstream fashion scene, from the ready-to-wear catwalks to Paris Couture Week. Dior's most recent couture collection featured empire waists and embellished dresses that people could only compare to the British Regency era style, which I don't mind at all.
If you're also intrigued by the size of high society, I've rounded up six trends I spotted in the movies that you can buy or get inspired now. From over-the-top collars to corsets, I'll do anything to pretend I'm waiting for applicants like the Duke of Hastings or my personal favorite, Mr. Darcy. You can keep it simple like the March Sisters or dramatic performances like Marie Antoinette, this is a zone of no judgment.
According to Klarna, there was a 140% increase in search queries Corsets in the US app compared to the previous week Bridgerton was released on Netflix. From Dion Lee to Amazon, girls everywhere are reaching for corsets to add a touch of fascination to their outfits.
Whether they are hanging around your neck or sewn into your outfit, pearls add a subtle touch of elegance to your ensemble. I have always preferred pearls to jewels because I think they are more versatile and easy to put on or off. They were also chosen as accessories by many at inauguration, from J. Lo and Jill Biden to poet Amanda Gorman.
If a sleeve isn't dramatic, I don't want it. Puff sleeves are worn by both men and women from historical dramas, and either way, it's something I want to add to my wardrobe. It's one little detail that can make a huge difference and make your average blouse or cardigan a lot more interesting.
While I may not wear a collar under a ball gown à la Little womanI'm going to use them to add a touch of drama to my daily look. They take an otherwise plain poplin top and add a touch of playfulness to it that I'm a fan of. And who doesn't want to look like they're visiting Theodore Laurence?
Yes, floral printing isn't the most breakthrough trend, but the elegance of vintage flowers in historical dramas is very different from the majority you see at mass fashion retailers today. ThredUp has seen searches for flower items increase by 30% since then Bridgerton It is clear that people are looking for the perfect old-fashioned floral design. If it looks like it was a print on your grandmother's fine china, or if you can imagine taking a stroll through a royal garden, then you've nailed the regency-era print.
Lace is a common part of high society fashion, from the characters' gloves and dresses to their nightwear. The fabric has both daring and romantic elements and is often used by designers like Rodarte and Self-Portrait, whose designs look like they could have been picked out of a regency ball.
