Bridgerton for Halloween: Regency Gown Costume Dresses

Bridgerton was a breakout hit earlier this year for Netflix. Everyone was talking about the scandalous storylines, the outrageous characters, and the fabulous fashion. 

Bridgerton takes place in the Regency era, between 1813 and 1827. The period has a distinctive fashion style. 

Notably, women's dresses and gowns had high bodices, and the hair was kept long and worn up, or partially up, and/or in curls.

Men's suits included velvet high-low coats with plenty of buttons, and ruffled shirts. 

Copy the look of your favorite Bridgerton characters this Halloween with Regency-era style dresses, gowns, suits, and accessories.
