What Does “Trousseau” Mean?

Trousseau is an old French word that describes the personal possessions a bride brings into her marriage. It usually consists of clothing, accessories and household items.

I originally started Trousseau Style working exclusively with brides. In 2016, I branched out and began working with personal styling clients to build wardrobes that reflect their personality and lifestyle.

No matter where you are in your life, I love the idea of building your trousseau, that will prepare you for whatever life may bring.

Definition of trousseau

A little history lesson…

“Trousseau is a descendant of the French verb trousser, meaning “to truss” or “to tuck up.” Fittingly, a bride might truss, or bundle, a variety of items as part of her trousseau-and it is perhaps not too surprising that “truss” is also a “trousser” descendant.  The first known use of trousseau was in 1817.”
