It might sound that the tragic story of Princess Diana is like a tale, but her style is anything but outdated. She is not only one of the most famous women on the planet, but also her outfits made her unforgettable. The fashion of the ‘80s and ‘90s are mostly inspired by her impeccable looks and chic-preppy style.
Even before social media was invented, Lady Di was a real influencer. Not only in fashion but as well for her royal yet a normal lifestyle. Back in the time when she was married to Prince Charles, she was usually seen with chic items – Hunter boots recorded a huge spike in sales right after she worn them.
To mark 21 years of her unfortunate death I have collected four trends that were key in her everyday dressing.
For every royal, having a good tailored suit in the closet is the must-have. From everyday to elegant and special occasions Princess Di showed us how to rock blazer and skirt, or blazer and high-waisted pants. As you know power suits made a huge comeback for the A/W 2018. Don’t hesitate to copy Diana’s looks – even this green combination. You will definitely be noticed.
Mommy jeans, blazer, and boots are some of the preppy items Diana constantly were wearing – no matter is she is picking her kids from school or just strolling down the streets, she always managed to look chic. This year checked blazers took hearts of many fashion girls, while it is still one of the biggest throwback trends from the ‘80s and ‘90s.
Even if it might be hard to believe in it, royals wear cycling shorts as well. Princess Diana was so ahead time when it comes to athleisure trend. Trust me, even before Kim Kardashian was wearing her sweatpants, Lady Di styled it better! She didn’t hesitate to wear printed leggings with chunky sweaters, or cycling pants with hoodies for training.
You have probably heard about the famous ‘revenge’ dress that Diana was wearing for a special occasion. However, she has preferred to wear a lot of cute, chic, and printed dresses as well. Red, blue or green – no matter. Don’t forget to add ruffles and retro collars. Polka dots is probably one of the favorite Diana’s prints. It is not a surprise – it is timeless as she is indeed.
For me personally, Princess Diana present a style icon. When in lack of ideas, I always come back to her timeless outfit combinations, like the ones I have shown you in this post. She had the specific charisma that people adored her for. Along with her charity work, there is her part in fashion inspiration. Many girls tried to recreate her style, but she is unique. Princess Diana has seen the fashion as something that connects her with the ordinary non-royal persons. She broke many rules of royals dressing but became more and more popular among people.
