Downton Abbey

Admit it: even if you haven’t been glued to your television set mesmerized by Downton Abbey (like most of us), you’ve undoubtedly heard of the show. If you’re a friend/co-worker/arch nemesis of mine, you’ve probably even been invited to sip tea as you lounge on my sofa on Monday nights. (Gotta love WLIW21 public television!)

Downton Abbey is more than just a television program –it’s a great escape to a world where hints of rebellion can be found on each corner and everyone from the scullery maids to lords and ladies are hiding tidbits of juicy drama.

But most importantly, the drama unfolds in clothing and accessories that are absolutely to die for! So, whether you’ve been obsessing over Sybil’s harem pants or can’t get enough of Mary’s gorgeous gloves, here are 15 Downton Abbey-inspired pieces to spice up your wardrobe now.
