With Downton Abbey back on our screens, it is time to marvel at the exquisite styling of the Crawley ladies and gents once more. Set in the early 1920s, the fourth season is sure to keep us glued to the TV every Sunday night – and not just because of the explosive plotlines.
Here at Jules B, we’ve compiled our top 3 winter essentials that emulate the Downton style. Whether you model yourself on Lady Mary Crawley or Tom Branson, we have something that would have you looking right at home as an extra.
Who can say no to leather gloves? This classic black pair are perfect for the winter months, and the turn over tartan trim is very on-trend for this season. Crafted by Barbour, these gloves – fittingly named ‘Lady Jane’ – will see you through rain, snow and forceful winds as we settle into the darker nights and colder climes.
Renowned hat makers Stetson bring this super-soft wool flat cap, which wouldn’t look out of place on a hunting trip at Downton. With a stitched down peak and a traditional herringbone design throughout – which is very in keeping with the country heritage trend – you are sure to look like a true gent of the Abbey.
It’s not only the Ladies and Lords who have looks worth stealing, as the household staff has just as much to offer in the style stakes. This single-breasted jacket would look perfect on a Lady’s maid such as Anna, with a simplistic design that is ideal for winter layering. The quirky oversized pockets give a modern twist, as well as the raw edge of the cuffs and hem.
As this selection demonstrates, Jules B is brimming with autumn/winter essentials to keep you stylish, warm and reminiscent of a time gone by. Whether you want the styling of a 20s Lady, Lord or house maid, we have it all in our expansive selection of stylish clothing.
