The evening wear on “Downton Abbey” is incredibly exciting. Grand, glittering evening gowns are a famous feature of nearly every episode. These elegant dresses are distinctly Edwardian, and feature relaxed, sheath style silhouettes that were rising to popularity during the turn of the century. While typically shapeless, the beading, embroidery, and other exquisite details give them a feminine look and timeless appeal.

Our empire-waisted gowns feature slight sleeves and long, luxurious layers of fabric to create a beautifully textured look that mimics the look of characters on the popular television show. Whether you are looking for rich, ruby-colored tea dress or a golden gown fit for a “Downton Abbey” style wedding, you’ll find it in our sumptuous collection.
While the evening wear on “Downton Abbey” is unmatched, the casual looks also have a distinct polish that is worth copying. High waisted, A-line skirts are paired with feminine tops for a look that exemplifies casual fashions that were popular during the Edwardian era.

Although they seem like small details, accessories are what truly make “Downton Abbey” style come to life.

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.
