Inspired by Lady Sybil from Downton Abbey

You might not know her by her real name, Jessica Brown Findlay, but you surely know her character, Lady Sybil Crawley, from "Downton Abbey." This star on the rise is also someone to watch in the fashion world. She takes beautiful yet daring choices, puts her own spin on trends, and incorporates that English sensibility that we all fell in love with on "Downton Abbey."

After I saw this photo of her, I couldn't stop thinking about her outfit. The tough black leather jacket, the feminine mint blue lace dress, bright red lips, hair swept up, and gold tassel earrings—it's a one-of-a-kind look that I'm on a mission to recreate for myself. Here's my take, inspired by Lady Sybil.

I've chosen a jacket from Free People, a sweet top from Shop Ruche, two pairs of earrings from Blank Verse Jewelry, and the perfect red lipstick—by Julie Hewett in Femme Noir—it's a favorite of many fashion editors. Tied together, this look is a big hit—it combines romance and edge all into one package.
