While we mourn the loss of Regé-Jean Page (The Duke of Hastings) in the upcoming second season, we know Shonda Rhimes will have something just as juicy for us.

Let's not forget we finally found out the identity of Lady Whistledown, and we can't wait to see what havoc is about to unfurl.

But before we step back into the 19th Century, why not prepare for the new season by adding some Regency-vibe fashion pieces to your wardrobe to really feel like a young aristocrat.

One can dream.
