Bridgerton Regencycore Fashion, Beauty & Tea Sets | 3 Articles on Dress

Welcome to a new 3 Articles on dress. Today we are exploring the fashionable world of Bridgerton, Netflix's hit Regency Era show.   

Doesn't it feel like we were just recently discussing Cottagecore? Well goodbye Cottagecore, hello Regencycore! (Or so the fashion magazines say). Today I have an article from British Vogue, American Vogue, and Byrdie discussing everything you need to know about Regencycore and Bridgerton style.

But first, I have a confession to make. I haven't actually seen Bridgerton. Have you? I have heard it is very racy and that somewhat ruins the plot. What do you think? Let us know your opinion on the show. 

This dress from Morning Lavender has many of the Regency Core characteristics with a modern twist. 

The first article comes from British Vogue: Are You Ready for #Regencycore? Here's how to dress like a debutante by Alice Cary. I notice a decided slant for feminine dresses in white, cream, and blue. Pearl accessories in the form of jewelry and headbands, feathers, and dainty bags. Regencycore style seems like a more royal and upscale version of Cottagecore. 

I recommend the following retailers for finding pretty and romantic Regencycore style: 

Morning Lavender, Lulu's, SKYE (for pearl headbands and jewelry) Jennifer20 for 20% off, 

The next article shares how to achieve the Regencycore look with makeup via Byrdie.  The emphasis here is on natural makeup the gives a dewy, flushed, romantic look. The two natural makeup brands I recommend for this romantic beauty look are Merit minimalist makeup and A'DEL Natural Cosmetics  TDC20 for 20% off

      The Victoria Magazine blue roses tea set

The final article is from Vogue and shares the surprising uptick in fancy tea set sales since Bridgerton came on the scene. Thanks to Bridgerton, Fancy Tea Sets Have Become the New Home Must-Have. It's not surprising that a popular television program launches fashion trends, but I find it very curious that high-end tea sets have been one of the emerging style desires of Bridgerton fans. Some beautiful tea sets to consider are the Victoria Magazine blue roses tea set, And the tea sets featured at Riverbend Home

The necklace I am wearing in today's video is by SKYE. Jennifer20 for 20% off.

Hi Laura, it makes sense that Rachmaninoff had large hands. I don't see how it's possible to play one of his pieces, but clearly it can be done! Thanks for joining us for The Chic Assignment.

Hi Jennifer, a fabulous topic this week. Thank you.
I have loved Regency style since a little girl, when I had two long nightdresses that were elasticated under the bust, one lilac, the other light green.They were so pretty and flattering, a change from my other clothes - I was a child in the 70's. I loved twirling in my nighties.
The Regency silhouette (Empire Line) is very different from what we are used to wearing, but great if you are pregnant, wish to hide a tummy or have had an operation in the tummy area and don't want fabric pressing on it.

I am lucky in that I live in the UK near Bath, where Jane Austen lived for a while. Bath was a Regency Resort / Holiday town. I have visited the Jane Austen museum there and they have Regency costumes that you can try on. I had a great time trying on dresses, hats and gloves. Best of all, after much persuasion, my husband eventually tried on a mans Regency jacket. I nearly swooned as before my eyes he was transformed into a dashing Regency buck. He was actually suprised how the look suited him. He is tall and looked good in the long straight coat. Why can't he dress like that everyday?
I understand your husband's family are in England. When we can fly again and you visit, I recommend a trip to Bath. It has an interesting history, based on it's source of hot thermal water. The Romans made use of it, with buildings housing complexes of baths, steam rooms/saunas which you can visit.

Then in the Regency era, for health reasons, it became popular to "take the waters" in Bath and other spa towns. You can visit the Pump Room, which has a fountain pumping out hot thermal water to drink, have afternoon tea there and listen to a small orchestra. The Assembly rooms are where they used to hold balls. You can also visit a Georgian/Regency house on the Royal Crescent and then there are the elegant parks such as the Sydney Pleasure gardens, to wander through, as well as old fashioned tea rooms. Bath also has a Regency Festival week, where people dress up and there is a ball in the Assembly rooms.
Other Regency Spa towns worth a visit are Bristol (the Clifton area), Harrogate, Cheltenham, Brighton - look up Brighton Pavillion, the exotic holiday home of the Prince Regent and in London, Regents Park, the Nash terraces.

I think the draping on Roman statues of women inspired some of the dress styles, together with the new thin cotton fabrics. Before we had wool and linen. It was fashionable to wear wet/damp dresses, so that you looked like a roman statue, showing off the drapes and female silhouette.

Re Teaset - I have a white and blue floral tea set that I regularly use, including right now as I type this. For my birthday, my husband bought me the matching cake stand, and we have used it for afternoon tea. We do a savoury version, you sometimes see it as a "Gentleman's Afternoon Tea" - cheese sandwiches, scotch eggs, mini quiches, mini sausage rolls, pots of pickles and a few small cakes. Delicious.

After lockdowns, where some women are spending more time at home, it will be interesting to see how the role of women change. I am furloughed and enjoying my time at home and adding feminine touches such as flowers.

I started reading your blog many years ago, as I was interested in French Chic, which is a feminine way of dressing and it is interesting to see how your own personal style has evolved. It definately now has a Romantic vibe.

I am enjoying seeing fashions search for feminine style, there is so much inspiration in fashions from the past and other cultures. My other favourite feminine styles are the 1950's, Elizabethan, Italian Renaissance, Japanese Kimonmo's and Indian Saris.

Hello! Thank you for this video. I am struggling with balancing dressing well and staying warm while also being an active mom. I love this Regency style, but I would freeze here in northern California!
