The first (and resounding success) of series like The Bridgertons or The Golden Age brought back the clothes worn during the Regency period. It was the 19th century when women saw themselves dressed in empire-style clothing, period gloves that became synonymous with ostentation and luxury, creations with vigorous sleeves and footwear worthy of being worn in highly formal London High Society acts.

Influences of past centuries that, today, seem more attractive than ever. The glamor that distilled each of the garments that made up the dressing rooms of wealthy women returns to enter the wardrobes of each of us, with the intention of feeling more favored than ever.
How to apply Regency clothing in everyday looks?
corset with pants
There is a garment that is the maximum expression of the Regency era: the corset. A piece that, without a doubt, comes to modify the concept of sensuality with which we have always lived. Companies like Schiaparelli, at the Haute Couture Fashion Week, were the inspiration to be able to accept the rigid romanticism that was breathed in the High Society of the nineteenth century through corsets and bustiers. Oppressive creations or symbols of eroticism and women’s liberation? Be that as it may, the it girl in the image proposes to combine a lace corset with a jacket and trousers with a checked print. Ideal style proposal for situations where extreme formality is not required.
Opera gloves with bespoke ensemble
Opera gloves, made of tulle or silk, have positioned themselves as one of the most requested fashion trends of recent months. Although they continue to be worn as a status symbol for some, companies today have invented more informal models in leather, such as the one worn by the style prescriber in street style. Without a doubt, it will become the idyllic accessory to add some sophistication and elegance to the looks we wear this season. In this case we see it combined with a three-piece of sartorial inspiration consisting of coat, shirt (with bow at the neck) and skirt.

Lingerie with transparencies
Wearing underwear with garments that promote transparency and, therefore, make it visible, is a stylistic practice in vogue for the following seasons. Dressing in a sexy way is the order of the day, which is why companies like Fendi have not hesitated to bet on lingerie in their latest collections. The model from this fashion house shows how a fluid dress can perfectly adapt to other garments that, in the same way, remind us of the Regency era, such as the opera gloves or the underwear set.

Floral prints in dresses with train
Dresses with an integrated train or cape are magnetic. Both details denote sumptuousness and luxury throughout, so it’s no surprise that women with the most exquisite tastes succumb to them in spring and summer times. It was Carolina Herrera, on this occasion, the designer who launched the floral dress that, for sure, would have been worn today by the women of the London High Society.
