Casual Dress

While the evening wear on “Downton Abbey” is unmatched, the casual looks also have a distinct polish that is worth copying.

Although they seem like small details, accessories are what truly makes “Downton Abbey” style come to life. For evening gowns, layer on the jewelry for tons of sparkle and pair satin gloves with sleeveless silhouettes for an elegant, authentic look. For daytime styles, strands of pearls provide just enough visual impact. A stylish straw or cloche-style hat also provides the perfect finishing touch to your “Downton Abbey” inspired look.
