It’s 2013! Time to dress like…an Edwardian? Quite right. Downton Abbey’s Crawley sisters and their fellow cohorts are inspiring modern women—and designers (Ralph Lauren dedicated his fall 2012 collection to the show)—with their WWI-era fashions. Now in its third season, the British drama features looser silhouettes, midi skirts (a peek of ankle! Gasp!), fabulous headpieces and pretty Art Deco details. Even though the Downton action takes place nearly 100 years ago, today’s trendsetters can still borrow from the era’s civilized charm—without the constricting corsets. So pile on the pearls and bring on the beading because, although war may change everything as the show’s tagline notes, good fashion never goes out of style.
