Bridgerton Is Going to Make Bodice Ripping Accessible Fashion Cool Again


Fashion is ever evolving. What’s “uncool” today might be popular tomorrow (I can only hope, though, that this doesn’t apply to low-rise jeans anytime soon!). But there’s a famous saying I’m sure we hear time and time again, and it is, “what goes around comes around.”


And this is to be taken literally.


I mean, we’re going back at least 200 years.


I’m talking about a time when there were Dukes, ballroom scenes and coming-out parties.



I’m referring to Netflix’s new show Bridgerton.



The aesthetic movement the show is making famous is called ‘Regencycore,’ and it’s taking over TikTok. ‘Regencycore’ revolves around showcasing early 1800’s-style femininity. There’s corsets. Empire waistlines. Puffy sleeves. Bright colored dresses adorned with floral prints and sequins. Extravagant headpieces. Elbow length gloves.
