The second season of Bridgerton lands on Netflix today, but ever since that very first episode graced our screens, our lives have been influenced by the hit period show.
First there was an uptick in afternoon tea set and embroidery hoop sales, then a Bridgerton-inspired clothing range, and now Gap has reported an incredible 905 per cent increase in searches for ‘puff sleeve dresses’.
Dresses with little puffed sleeves are rife throughout the show and season two will be no different. So if you wish to dress a little more Penelope Featherington, a puff sleeved dress is a must this season.
Luckily, they’re already in fashion so there are plenty of options to choose from on the high street right now, with prices starting from £29.99, so there’s something for every budget.
They’re a great way to add a dash of Regency-style glamour to your wardrobe, but even better is that puff sleeve dresses can tick more than one style box, for example by being in an on-trend gingham print or this season’s hottest length, the mini.
