Lady Mary Crawley's 15 Best Dresses and Outfits on Downton Abbey
The sixth and final season of Downton Abbey is almost here and we’re pretty devastated to see it go (Bates and Anna! Mr. Carson and Mrs. Hughes! The Dowager Duchess and her on-point bon mots! It’s all too much to bear.). And as we tune in to pick up where we left off with our favorite upstairs and downstairs characters on Sunday night (January 3, 9pm EST/8pm CST, on PBS), we’re also excited to see the incredible costumes. Namely, those of our fave It Girl from another era, Lady Mary, who always seems gets the good stuff. From elegant gowns to tweed coats; corseted dresses from series’ start to drop-waist flapper silhouettes that emerge as the series ends; Mary’s arsenal of looks is certainly one to be envied (all thanks to geniu of costume designer Anna Mary Scott Robbins, read more about her here)
So, before you grab the Kleenex and begin your very own Downton vigil, celebrate its run with Lady Mary’s best looks of the series.
The only words we have to describe the train on this coat? Wow.
Making a statement in a red, waist-defining evening gown with cap sleeves and embroidered detail.
Befitting of the times, Lady Mary looks elegant in a corseted lace dress in blue and navy.
We may seek a slightly different silhouette in modern days, but this monochrome oxblood looks is just as on-trend now as it was then!
Always dressed to the nines, Lady Mary chooses a double-breasted tweed skirt suit to go riding.
Looking elegant in a daytime look, complete with a high-waisted skirt, silk blouse, and short coat.
It’s all in the details with this fur-trimmed winter coat in a deep navy velvet.
For a more casual silhouette, she opts for a silk shirt dress with neck and cuff details.
Her choice for a day out shooting? A plaid jacket-and-skirt combo, finished off with a hunter green hat and tall brown riding boots.
Borrowing from the boys, fashion-forward Mary opts for a button-down, tie, and double-breasted camel coat.
Her wedding dress is elegantly simple with long sleeves and a more loose silhouette, reminiscent of the times.
As the 1920s roll in, the waistlines drop, and more intricate beading is introduced on the flapper-style dresses.
Let’s just take a moment to appreciate not only the delicate beaded chain around her neck, but also the similar piece she chooses for her hair.
With a pale green summertime frock, she keeps it simple with a matching hat and strand of long pearls.
A midi silhouette, neck scarf detail, and Mary Jane heels? We’re ready to break out this look right now!
