Regencycore is here!

By Lori Perkins

You knew it was coming after all the Bridgeton infatuation. It just took a moment to figure out exactly how to do it in a contemporary way.

So, what is it you ask?

It’s a way to replicate some of the distinctive fashion from English high society between 1811 and 1820. But, it’s not like we are all going to start wearing empire waste gowns to work from home, so it’s the little things that count like jewelry and accessories.

Every major museum – The Met, The Louvre, the British Museum – has copies of Regency-era jewelry, which can be your’s almost overnight, such as pearl earrings and necklaces and brooches.

Ballerina-like slippers are also right on target, in pastels like pale blue and pink.

Lace gloves (which you can now get pretty easily because Halloween is around the corner) are also de rigueur for Regency working form home.

And you can top it off with a faux pearl headband, also from your favorite Halloween store.

And pearl-encrusted evening bags.

And you can even go online for a regency make-up tutorial.
