Downton Abbey Fashion: Spring Trends From The Popular TV Show

Posted: Updated:
Downton Abbey's impact on spring 2013 fashion trends |

Pulling in almost eight-million viewers on premiere night (and quadrupling PBS’ average primetime viewership to boot), Downton Abbey is clearly more popular than ever in North America.

Season 3 of the British drama, which centres on the Crawley family after World War I, is already influencing the sartorial world as we embrace flapper style fashion, such as midi skirts, sequinned dresses and vintage jewellery, that were the height of popularity in the light-hearted atmosphere of the post-war period.

So with warm weather just around the corner, it’s time to break out your headscarves and short skirts, find some bright coloured florals, curl your hair (or even cut it short!) and prepare for a skirt-twirling, free-wheeling, twenties-inspired spring.
