Downton Abbey Costume Guide for Ladies ( Infographic )
How to dress for a 1920's Downton Abbey costume event and where to shop for clothing, shoes and accessories.

Set in 1922 Downton Abbey costumes are still long dresses with plenty of beautiful beading but we also start to see the influence of flappers with more skin, slightly shorter hems, longer necklaces, and headbands instead of tiaras. The early 20’s are still glamorous and mostly conservative. Ladies fashion sides with modesty especially at an estate house like Downton. In a modern age of immodest clothing the era of Downton is very appealing. To get started creating your Downton Abbey costume view this infographic and article http://www.vintagedancer.com/
Re-creating an early 1920’s ladies costume is fairly easy to do. Thanks to Downton Abbey and the Great Gatsby movie, 1920s inspired fashions have come back into mainstream clothing stores.
