Downton chic in series three, episode eight
This is the last episode in series three (sob sob sob), but the good news is that we’ll be back at Downton for the Christmas special! The final episode of the series was packed with gorgeous outfits, and it even included a trip to a speakeasy-style jazz club which, as you can imagine, was filled to the rafters with stunning roaring twenties cocktail dresses. This episode has also introduced us to the wonderful world of cricket chic, where everyone indulges in cream cable-knit jumpers and crisp white shirts. Well, this has been a fantastic series (the best yet, I think), and we’ve seen some stunning ensembles this year… I cannot wait until series four hits our screens in the autumn of 2013!

Three faces of Downton Abbey do not look at home in the speakeasy. #Awkward
The roaring twenties are in full swing, complete with ornamental headpieces, heavy kohl eyeliner, and sequins. Lots and lots of sequins.

Yes, his ‘n’ hers cricket chic is very much in vogue.
