BRIDGERTON EDITION

Is anyone else going through Bridgerton withdrawals or is it just me?? I binged all 8 episodes, rewatched the entire season AGAIN with David and now I’m sitting here missing the whimsical, steamy plot line.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, Bridgerton is a Netflix original show produced by the one and only, Shonda Rhimes. Um Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal, pretty much all of ABC Network shows! Bridgerton was adapted from Julia Quinn’s bestselling novels (there’s 12 books in this series… So fingers crossed for 12 more seasons of Bridgerton!) Of course any Shondaland production is going to be over the top, intentional and very well executed. It’s a period drama that focuses on powerful families, specifically the Bridgertons and we watch the eldest daughter make her debut on Regency London’s competitive marriage market.

Back to what I was saying… All that’s been running through my mind since the show are location scouting the historical castles, thinking of ways to rent some fabulous ball gowns, & looking up properties in London on Zillow. You can definitely call me Bridgerton obsessed. My favorite part of the show was most definitely the wardrobe. I don’t think there is another show out there that can top the custom made clothing. Although it was centered around the Regency period, the clothing was a blend of tradition and modern styles and it was aesthetically pleasing. I loved that there was meaning behind each family’s color palette (it just shows you how intentional every detail in the show was) The show has inspired me to dress up more for everyday mundane life and below are some of my looks for each character! Enjoy!

WARNING: SPOILERS BELOW

DAPHNE BRIDGERTON

The Bridgerton blue- you see it everywhere. In their London home with blue carpets, drapes, flowers, and decor. Of course the entire family’s clothing has incorporated the color in every single piece of wardrobe . It’s a pale, pastel like shade of blue, which symbolizes their class and standing in high society.

I’ve linked below some of the dresses that I’ve found to be aligned with Daphne Brigherton’s style. They are more modern and wearable versus an uncomfortable tight corset that takes forever to put on/ take off.

PENELOPE FEATHERINGTON

The Featherington’s in general are seen to be wearing very bold and vibrant colors , always wanting to scream for attention. Penn is seen in yellow ALOT and throughout the show, she shows her disdain for the color. Yellow symbolizes the sun and cheerfulness and was a very popular color during the Regency period. It’s a common color worn by marriage seeking women . However, the color yellow also reflects jealously, deceit, and betrayal, which is very telling of her other personality. The over the top wardrobe from the Featherington’s symbolize new money and the vibe of outsiders trying hard to fit into the upper class.

QUEEN CHARLOTTE

Queen Charlotte’s character was actually written into the show and is based off of  Sophia Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz in 1744. She fell in love with King George and married him within 6 hours of meeting him and actually had one of the more successful, loving royal marriages. In the show, she’s seen sniffing drugs and it’s a real depiction of Charlotte’s addiction to drugs.she had the nickname Snuffy Charlotte and always had a whole room stocked with drugs in Windsor Castle.

SIENA ROSSO

The opera singer with a secret affair with a prominent lord. She’s longed for that status. Back in the day, it was shameful and scandalous to be an opera singer because being a part of an opera house meant having a patron. who in exchange for sexual favors, would fund a young woman’s career.

LADY DANBURY

As for Lady Danbury, she projects iconic energy and represents the color purple so well in all of her outfits. She is the ultimate queen of the social order and no one dares to mess with her. I’ve found some modernized, trendy versions that is Lady Danbury inspired and a lot more wearable on a day to day basis.
