Fans of the hit Masterpiece show Downton Abbey know that the Granthams represent the height of propriety and high society in early twentieth century England. From the astounding grandeur of their palatial home to the revolving door of glamorous guests they entertain, the ladies and gentlemen of Downton Abbey have raised the bar for their fictional community and for the viewers who peek into their lives every week.
But one of the most transportive elements of the show is the fashion. Men wear suits for nearly every occasion, including tails and white tie for special events (or well-attended dinners) and stylish casual suits for meetings, garden parties, or afternoons spent reading in the study. The Ladies Grantham, though, represent the best of 1910-1920s fashion. Their early corsets gave way to more utilitarian dress during World War I, when their home became a hospital. But when the war was over, the fashion became looser and more modern. Sparkly embellishments and higher hemlines were all the rage, and the ladies of Downton embraced these trends wholeheartedly. With the rise of Downton's popularity, many viewers have become inspired to theme their parties and weddings to suit the old-world elegance of Downton Abbey.
