Regengycore your home and wardrobe

Move over cottagecore, there’s a new trend on the block, and it’s inspired by your love of the new Netflix show Bridgerton.

Perhaps nostalgia is helping us get through a turbulent moment in time, or perhaps we just want some pomp and ceremony in our lives (given we’ve been living in sweatpants and PJs).

Either way, regencycore is proving popular. Google searches for ‘Regency interior’ are up by 9500% since the end of December, and the #regency hashtag on Instagram currently has over 300,000 mentions.

Basically, we all want to go out with The Duke and dance around fancily at debutante parties.

Thankfully, this interest is reflecting in offerings from fashion to interiors, so it’s easy to fulfil our period drama dreams.

What is regencycore?

Regencycore is a trend dedicated to looking like you live in the regency period.

This era, towards the end of the Georgian period in the early 1800s, was defined by elegance and opulence – but slightly less so than pre French revolution.

People shunned tight corsets and wigs, opting for a softer look. Empire waists and a pronounced cleavage was in for women, while men wore less formal tailoring to that we saw in the 18th century.

Homes were still full of sumptuous fabrics, but there was less of a set way to decorate your home. Think of classic pieces, with a touch of individuality.

Exotic influences were common, as well as playing with colour and texture.

Get the look

To get the regencycore look, your best bet is to watch period dramas from this time and take inspiration.

You don’t want to look like you’re going to a costume party, or to look like you’re trying to make your home into museum. Instead, it’s all about that 19th century aesthetic of decadence and self expression.

Think of the silhouettes you see in period dramas like Bridgerton, then pick statement pieces that are fit for a great hall.

We’ve rounded up some pieces that can give your home or wardrobe a regencycore revamp.
