Bridgerton the Netflix series is one of the fastest my husband and I have ever binge watched a Netflix series and the least I’ve been on my phone watching TV for a while. If you haven’t seen it yet, think Gossip Girl set between 1813-1827 with gorgeous Regency era fashion and style. I’m totally here for the sizzling sexual tension, feminine styles, rosy cheeks and embellished hairstyles. .

What is Bridgerton Netflix about

In a nutshell Bridgerton, inspired by Julia Quinn’s bestselling novels, is about eight close-knit siblings of the Bridgerton family in the 19th century looking for love in London high society. The cast, locations and fashion are all beautiful and it’s completely binge worthy.

Bridgerton Netflix Fashion and Style But Make it 2021

The smash Netflix show Bridgerton is set during the Regency era (early-mid 1800’s) when the women’s fashion included low cut Empire silhouette dresses, lace, brocades, feathers and jewelry. Makeup was natural and hair was parted in the center with masses of curls sometimes tied up into a beautiful updo.

While I’m really hoping Empire line dresses don’t make a comeback as they’re not the most flattering unless you’re 6 foot, I really loved the natural makeup, jewelry and feminine looks. Instead of Empire waists, I’m hoping fashion trend will go more towards loose, flowing ,Greek style dresses in light and even sheer fabrics (a trend from the SS2021 runways).

You don’t have to wear them altogether all at once but can mix them with the trends of 2021 eg a corset and jeans, empire waist dress with modern accessories, velvet bows in updo’s with a simple dress or leather leggings and blazer to soften the look. Have fun with it and make it your own.

  1. Empire line dresses and long flowy dresses
  2. A-line waists (fitted to your waist and gradually flare out to the hem)
  3. Off the shoulder straps
  4. Puff sleeves
  5. Cap sleeves
  6. Velvet and Satin Bows (on clothing and as hair accessories)
  7. Brocade
  8. Ruffly high collars (think Chanel not Prince)
  9. Riding jackets
  10. Cape jackets
  11. Embellished dresses (beaded, feathered, jeweled)
  12. Dainty floral prints
  13. Neutral, powder blue, lilac, pastel and gold shades
  14. Pearls and larger precious stone jewelry
  15. Tulle, chiffon and light floaty fabrics

Dakota Fanning gets Empire waist dresses right, this is such a beautiful silhouette, material and color on her. When getting fashion inspiration think more Dakota and less Jane Austen heroines.

These high waisted Empire dresses are comfortable but since they’re pretty shapeless everywhere besides the bust, they’re not the most flattering. I remember when the empire waist baby doll dresses were big in the 90’s but looking back at those photos, I’m personally not going to be doing this trend over again.

Regency Era Corsets for 2021

Another more flattering option is a corset, especially in brocade or lace. Think either basic or opulent rather than lingerie. I’ve been seeing plain black corsets being worn with leather joggers for an easy everyday look. Since jeans are coming back for 2021, you could also try wearing a brocade corset with jeans and pumps.

Bridgerton Hair

To make this look work in 202, bring out the velvet bows, diamante barrettes and pearl headbands and leave the feathers in the 1800’s.

You can make this Bridgerton Regency Era inspired look work in 2021 by skipping the center parted fringe and tightly curled ringlets for softer curls, center partings, hair half and up half down, and hair accessories for a feminine look.

Micro Bangs

Expect to see some copycat micro bangs. If you want to try this look, try clip-in bangs to save cutting your own hair into a fringe and the painful growing out stage.

Bridgerton Netflix Makeup

I love contouring my face but am giving this softer and more natural look a go. The added bonus is that it’s quick and easy to do.

Bridgerton Fashion Accessories

Think fine or dress jewelry and the more opulent the better. The pageant girl in me loves this. Chokers of all colors including the easy to wear simple black choker, pearl chokers, shorter length diamond necklaces, diamond and precious stone chandelier earrings and white evening gloves.

Instead of the gathered wristlet bags, try this trend with the trending bags of 2021 like a cross body bag or large tote.
