The new period drama Bridgerton has been all the rage since it aired on Netflix on Christmas day. Fashion, sex, jealousy, and drama–could it get any better? It’s basically Gossip Girl for the idle set, but in the 19th century, and we couldn’t relate any more, as we’re also spending our day to day to day life constantly in the confines of our homes. And similarly, right now, a simple kiss feels just as perilous during Covid times as it did socially scandalous back then. The show gives us everything we find ourselves craving in 2021: Good clothes, social engagements—and lots of intimate moments.
From the moment the young women in Bridgerton are introduced to London society, to the frivolous courting and finally the wedding, we couldn’t help but be inspired by all of the empire-waisted frocks. We went through all eight juicy episodes again to pick out some of the best looks for us all to take a queue from once lockdown is over. Here, the most romantic looks for a very Bridgerton wedding in 2021.
