The final Downton Fashion feast

The curtain finally falls on Downton Abbey on Christmas Day, with millions of fans already mourning its departure. Many will miss Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary, Laura Carmichael as Lady Edith, and the inimitable Maggie Smith and her acerbic one liners. But if I am brutally honest, what I will miss most is the frocks and fashion.

Downton started just before World War One, but the most recent series have been set in the roaring twenties, when hemlines were raised, waists were dropped along with not so few inhibitions. The 1920s is a fashion era that was truly revolutionary, especially for women, and it remains both fascinating and iconic for designers, who still find themselves influenced by pieces that are both Art Deco and yet always feel young and modern, yet decadent and glamorous.

This Christmas,  Downton style is very easy to achieve, just grab yourself a beaded dress from the huge range at House of Fraser, and sling a fur stole nonchalantly over one shoulder. (fake of course from the great collection from Topshop). You can add a Matthew Goode lookalike for good measure of course, although this is not obligatory (maybe it should be come to mention it). All you need then is an all night party with cocktails and a little bit of 20s Jazz, and you will be shimmying the night away all the way to 2016.
