Princess Diana style: How to recreate the Princess’ iconic looks
Princess Diana tragically died in a car accident in 1997. Whilst she was alive, she was known for her stylish dresses and suits as well sometimes wearing more daring clothing pieces like off-the-shoulder tops. How can you recreate her iconic looks at home?
Many of Princess Diana’s looks are very easy to replicate at home as she often stuck with simple clothing like trousers, blouses and dresses.
The stylist explained: “The key aspects of Diana’s style are easy to replicate given current trends; try pleated wide leg trousers with a fitted, high-neck, puff sleeved blouse for an effortless look that can be easily dressed up with heels.
“If you’re looking for more casual attire, try boyfriend jeans from the likes of Lee Denim, a nautical striped tee and Superga trainers for an easy school run outfit.”
The Princess was regularly spotted leaving the gym in her Superga trainers which were pristine white.
“The key to nailing this trend in a truly wearable way is to keep things simple, allowing fashion-forward details on the blazer to shine; try a bright coloured style, strong padding in the shoulders or an oversized cut to channel peak 80’s Diana.”
Princess Diana often sported bright colours on her visits, especially when visiting children’s charities to make them feel more comfortable and for the visits to feel less formal.
The stylist explains that Diana was a huge fan of Bellville Sassoon – a high end British fashion salon which was founded in 1953.
Rich explained: “In the early 80s, Diana’s looks were safe as she took on her new role of attending royal engagements.
“She was often seen in a Belville Sassoon coat and John Boyd hat combo, such as on the day she announced she was expecting her first child. Sassoon made many appearances in her wardrobe, allowing Diana to honour protocol, but also brighten the room with a pop of colour.”
These coats were often long winter coats which can be found in nearly every high street store throughout the winter months.
