With Season 4 of The Crown out on Netflix, all eyes are on the legacy of the extremely influential Princess Diana! For our readers who aren’t familiar with the “People’s Princess”, we’ve included three of Diana’s most iconic looks from the 80’s-90’s with royal-inspired outfits you can rock at home! For our readers who have lived through Lady Di’s impact in the media, you may appreciate our modern take on her most famous looks.
Be sure to check out the free virtual museum presenting Netflix’s The Crown, which includes a closer look at costumes from the show!
Layering Like Lady Di
An oversized blazer over a sweater, jeans and cowboy boots. What do we love about this? Bulky top-layering is pulled together with a straight-leg jean, and is defined by the slimness of the boot. This look is relaxed yet well-proportioned. As seen below, Hailey Bieber recreated Princess Diana’s iconic ensemble with versions of her own – swapping boots for slide heels in one picture, and trading jeans for shiny leather in the second.
Other ideas for this combination include swapping the sweater for a hoodie, or swapping the jeans for another casual pant such as bike shorts or skinny jeans!
Pieces We Love
Oversized Sweater & Bike Shorts
An ode to Diana’s athleticism, we love a rendition of this athleisure classic: A big sweater worn effortlessly over bike shorts! Try this look in monochrome, or experiment with a patterned sweater or animal bike shorts!
Pieces We Love
The Sweater Says It All
Princess Diana’s outrageous pattern sweaters were often paired in contrast with sensible collars, tailored jeans or trousers and low heels or flats! A modern take on this outfit could be a rainbow striped sweater with straight-leg jeans, or switching the statement from your sweater’s pattern a statement collar!
