I think we can all agree that ‘Bridgerton’ was one of the hot new shows that came out of quarantine and with Season 2 just dropping, everyone is obsessed again! One of the reasons the show was such a hit were the gorgeous costume designs. After spending all day everyday at home in our sweats, I think everyone was looking for some wardrobe eye-candy. So today I thought I’d share a ‘Bridgerton’-inspired summer dress from Christy Dawn in case you were looking for a modern day version of the recency fashions from the show.
A ‘Bridgerton’-Inspired Summer Dress from Christy Dawn
Ok…so I have a confession to make. I’ve never seen ‘Bridgerton’. However, I’ve been a fan of period pieces and wardrobe for forever so I feel like I get the gist. (In my opinion, nothing beats the OG Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth). But from what I’ve heard, ‘Bridgerton’ is like a sexy Pride and Prejudice – so it’s in the same vein.
One of the styles that always stood out to me from these period shows is the empire silhouette or empire waist dress. A quick google search shows Daphne Bridgerton wearing a ton of these empire waist dresses. Characteristics of this style dress include a fitted bodice that ends right below the bust with a loose skirt that skims the body. That’s why this summer dress from Christy Dawn is PERFECT. It has that empire waist, loose flowing body, slight puff sleeves, and round neckline. It literally looks like something out of a period drama – without being too costume-y.

Sadly, the white version of the Meadow Dress that I’m wearing is sold out (sign up for restock notifications!). BUT it is still available in a lovely print and I’m hoping they bring more colors back this summer. Christy Dawn also has a ton of cottagecore style dresses that are great options in case the Meadow Dress is sold out. I just ordered the Scarlet Dress in Rust which is a more casual Bridgerton-inspired dress option. Last spring I picked up this linen dress from Rachel Pally which I also think has Bridgerton vibes. Hill House also carries Bridgerton-style dresses in lots of fun prints and colors.
