In love with the fantastic fashion of the Downton Abbey sisters? To celebrate the release of Downton Abbey Season 3 on DVD, dashion stylist Donny Galella shares his high street picks so you can steal Lady Mary, Lady Edith and Lady Sybil’s glamourous style!
The eldest sister really steps up the glamour stakes wearing all things decadent, opulent and rich.
Such as shinny shimmery fabrics, embellishment, embroidery and dresses with exquisite beaded necklines.
We saw loads of embellished gowns on the 2013 Logie Award red carpet and also on the international red carpets such as the Oscars and Golden Globes.
Take a leaf out of her style book and add some sparkle to your look. Whether it’s a dress, embellished hair comb, embroidered clutch or pumps complete with bling.
Wears lots of feminine fabrics such as divine delicate lace. We’re seeing a massive resurgence in lace and also in dresses with demure details such as long sleeves and higher necklines.
Just recently at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia, many designers used lace and soft floaty fabrics in their collections. So get set to see more of this for the coming season.
On the high street lace is being seen on dresses, tops, skirts and even on accessories like shoes and clutches. One thing that is for sure, lace is eternally stylish and a must for every wardrobe.
In the 1920’s it was all about the ‘Drop Waist’ during the ‘Flapper Era’. As we move into the early 1930’s the waist shifted higher and the ‘Empire waist appeared’ – a style that Lady Sybil wears with such poise and grace. The great thing about this style is that it accentuates the most narrow part of your body. This dress style has gone from Downton Abbey to the high street, from Alannah Hill to Zara. One of the most popular hats worn in the era was the ‘cloche’ hat. I love this red cloche hat from Alannah Hill. Not only do hats really finish off your outfit, but they also keep your head warm in the cooler months.
