The stylish Crawley ladies of Downton Abbey have injected some serious romantic vibes in street style bloggers' everyday wardrobes. From just a touch of crochet to head-to-toe 20's looks, the post-Edwardian styling elements are inspiring fashion bloggers everywhere right now.

Plaid Hunting Coats
When Lady Mary stepped out wearing this to go hunting with the men, street style bloggers immediately sought to find a plaid hunting coat just like hers. Boyfriend coats are similiar, but to get the 20's vibe, the coat needs to be double-breasted, dull in color and rest just above the knee. -- Qmuzi pairs her plaid jacket with white Hunter boots.
Light hues and Great Lengths
When the ladies of Downton get casual, they opt for light full-length dresses with touches of floral print, stripes and lace. And straw cloche hats add the perfect ladylike touch. -- Aileen Adelia (aka Aileen the Artistic) styles a white lace maxi dress with lace-up wedges.

Touch of Crochet
When you're wanting a subtle post-Edwardian look, throw on pieces that have just a touch of crochet and a romantic vibe -- Sasha W (aka Mrs_Whiskers) pairs a crochet-adorned blouse with a black puff-shoulder blazer, skinny jeans and nude pumps.
MENSWEAR Remember "every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man"? Good. This is your new mantra and your first step to looking as impeccable as the Downton fellas. Take some of these cues when putting together your next look, but just a warning: You may end up looking too dapper and irresistible for your own good.
Jacket and Vest
A Downton gentlemen would never leave in a jacket without a vest, and you shouldn't either. -- See Jesse Maricic's look for inspiration.
If you go by the book, you'll need a fedora for fishing, a tophat for elite social gatherings and a newsboy for leisurely strolls.
And last but not least...
Never underestimate the power of a tie.
