Love For Downton Abbey Vintage Fashion

Downton Abbey

For those who aren’t watching the PBS Masterpiece Classic, Downton Abbey, at least look at the fashion within the show. The series began in the early 1910s and in the last episode of season two, World War I was declared over. Downton Abbey is the name of the mansion that the royalty and their servants live in and everyone’s wardrobe is notably exquisite.

The character Lady Mary Crawley (Michelle Dockery) is getting a lot of attention for her costumes in the the show. Being a young woman in a royal household, she is expected to dress in expensive gowns to distinguish her class and please potential husbands. Even in the height of the war, her dresses were elegant and beautiful.

Lady Mary’s sisters, Edith (Laura Carmichael) and Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) also dressed-up but in different ways. Lady Edith had a more practical but playful look, while Lady Sybil was more daring. She once wore a dress that had pants on it, which was scandalous for the time.

There’s something we all kind of love about nostalgia, which makes watching Downton Abbey a joy for the many people out there who adore vintage fashion as much as we do at Rubber Soul Vintage.
