Drop Waists at Downton

In Downton's earlier seasons, the women wore corsets underneath their gowns, and said gowns almost always had sleeves. This season, the women of Downton are embracing the styles of the 1920's: which means sleeveless gowns, sequins and lots and lots of drop waists. The 1920's are known for women shedding their ultra-feminine frocks for a more boyish look, with looser (and shorter!) cuts. Here are a few of my picks for a more modern looks featuring a drop waist below. And of course, get a sneak peek of the beautiful fashions for series three in the Chronicles of Downton Abbey, available now!
