Regency Era

Surprisingly Colorful!: The Regency Era

 

The Regency Era and its fashion have the unique distinction of being the first time in history when people began wearing clothes that reflected those of another time.  The long, narrow, high waiste white dress that is synonymous with the era was done in the “Grecian” style.  Regency dresses are almost always depicted in pop culture as white or in some drab, dark color.  While white was indeed the predominant fashionable color of the time, especially for formal dresses, color did indeed exist in fashion at this time!  Today, we look at the surprisingly colorful dresses of the Regency Era.
