Downton Abbey Style

I'm currently obsessing (as is everyone else in the world!) about PBS's hit show Downton Abbey. I saw the show snag a few Emmy's at last year's ceremony and then caught the show on Netflix. I finished in about a week. Then I even cheated and watched the whole second season in a weekend over the Christmas holiday.

Of course, the fashion world and the TV world frequently collided. We saw quite a few collections devoted to Gatsby style wears. Though Downton is set in the mid-1910s through the early 1920s, there are some clear nods to the Spring runway in the show's costumes.

 A cast photo in which the girl's outfits mirror these looks from Calvin Klien:

 Look 21

Look 18

 The scene stealer: Lady Mary Crawley in a garden party outfit...

Would be a perfect match for Calvin Klein look 29.

 A ladylike cloche-style hat and floaty dress look great in the early 20th century...

As well as modern day on Ralph Lauren look 21.

 A beaded number for a formal dinner

 a red carpet event (Ralph Lauren look 50)

or to get some drinks. (Marc Jacobs look 35)

 An image of the three Crawley sisters who would look chic and modern in...

This Marchesa look 23.
