The costumes in Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby (which finally opens today) are gorgeous confections with an over-the-top 1920s sensibility. In almost every scene, those outfits are topped off with headbands, headwraps, or barrettes–and we were absolutely captivated by the look. (Downton Abbey and the recent spring couture shows have also recently showcased some amazing ’20s style head gear.)
The good news is that you can totally work this trend without looking like Daisy Buchanan’s BFF or the fourth sister from Downton Abbey. Trust us (and experts headpiece makers like Eugenia Kim and Jennifer Behr).
Get ready for Downton-branded apparel, homeware, furniture, wallpapers, beauty products, stationary and more in 2013.
With an ensemble of British accents, ornate period costumes, high production value and lots of drama, we’re pretty sure the new PBS series Mr. Selfridge is going to fill the hole Downton left in our TV watching schedule when it ended (now if only someone could do something about the hole that finale left in our hearts).

Finally, after the last few depressing weeks, the ladies of Downton Abbey are dressing up again. I am really glad I took a break from fashion week craziness to kick back with a cup of tea and watch this episode, because the clothes were killer. And a new character, the saucy cousin Rose, made me want to run out and get a perm.

Last week we watched the marathon two hour premiere of Downton Abbey‘s third season, which included Lady Mary’s wedding and the impending financial ruin of the family. We didn’t think it could get more exciting, but episode two doesn’t disappoint either–especially in the fashion department.
From yet another wedding to a pregnancy, check out how the Downton cast dressed for the drama.
