Dressed for Newborn Bliss: What to Wear for Newborn Pictuers, Bridgerton Inspired

The highly-anticipated new season of Bridgerton has reignited a desire for the sophisticated, romantic fashion of the Regency era. As modern mamas, we can absolutely take cues from these iconic styles while adapting them to flatter our postpartum figures. Here’s how to capture that refined Bridgerton essence in your newborn’s portraits:

The Elevated Empire Waist This regal silhouette is extremely complimentary for the postpartum shape. The raised waistline skims effortlessly over your midsection before cascading into a flattering skirt. Opt for luxe fabrics like silk chiffon or crepe that drape beautifully. Simple stretchy knits with nursing access are also an elegant option.

Romantic Puff Sleeves Subtly volumized sleeves were a hallmark of Regency dresses. A touch of puff or gentle ruffle detailing around the shoulders helps accentuate a narrower waistline. For a modern take, choose a structured puff sleeve in an organza or cotton-linen blend that allows for comfortable movement.

Painterly Prints While opulent jacquard fabrics scream Bridgerton, painterly florals or soft brushstroke prints feel fresh and feminine without overwhelming your portraits. A tonal, watercolor-inspired pattern adds a whisper of visual interest while keeping the focus on you and your newborn.

Luminous Pastels
The richer gemstone hues may look luxurious on screen, but softer, luminous pastels tend to be most flattering for portrait lighting. Shades like mineral blue, dusty rose, or sage green allow your skin’s natural radiance to glow. These delicate hues also beautifully complement your baby’s angelic features.

Channel a touch of Bridgerton sophistication while feeling confident and beautiful in your own skin. With a few elegant updates, you can bring the timeless Regency aesthetic into the modern era for stunning newborn portraits.
