Period Drama Inspired Fashion

Let us introduce: 'Regencycore'. Similarly to Cottagecore in its TikTok and Instagram origins, the phrase was coined following the influence of Netflix's latest hit Bridgerton, which has seen the appetite for period drama inspired fashion skyrocket.

Between Bridgerton, The Crown and The Queen’s Gambit, it’s clear that the escapism we seek from an evening of Netflix has transcended beyond simply a different reality, but to a different time period altogether. Let us introduce: ‘Regencycore’. Similarly to Cottagecore in its TikTok and Instagram origins, the phrase was coined following the influence of Netflix’s latest hit Bridgerton, which has seen the appetite for period drama inspired fashion skyrocket. 

From empire waistlines to pastel hues, pearl headbands, lace detailing and corseted silhouettes, it’s the ultimate throwback in romantic, whimsical dressing.

From empire waistlines to pastel hues, pearl headbands, lace detailing and corseted silhouettes, it’s the ultimate throwback in romantic, whimsical dressing. Decadence is the key here- minimalist, scandi dressers look away because this trend is rooted in more being more. And whilst it might seem that there are limited occasions with which you can get away with a pearl detailed blouse or renaissance inspired corset, the magic of regal dressing can be found in the small details synonymous with the trend that can be subtle but instantly recognisable. 

According to fashion intelligence outlet Lyst, searches for Regencycore fashion have gone wild following the Internet’s Jane Austen worthy love affair with Bridgerton, as searches for corsets were up 123%, pearl and feather headbands up 49%, long gloves up 23% and empire line dresses up a whole 93%. It’s clear that it’s not just the Duke and his spoon that have made a lasting impression on viewers.

Regencycore is reigning over the fashion world in 2021, and if it means an excuse to rewatch Bridgerton for the second (read: fifth) time running then so be it…
