Lady Diana’s style: more than fashion and etiquette
Still unforgotten today, for example, is the “Revenge Dress”, the little black dress with which Diana seemed to send a clear message to Charles, who shortly before had publicly confessed to cheating on her. Overall, it seems as if Diana’s emancipation from Charles and the British royal family was underscored by her style of dress. From dresses with enormous frilly collars, Diana’s looks moved increasingly in a direction that showed a minimalist and elegant – at times austere – femininity.
Masculine oversize blazers, accentuated shoulders, straight leg jeans tucked into high shanked boots and a belted waist – in 2020 we can not only admire Diana’s styles but also be inspired by them: In our picture gallery, we show you the princess’ most beautiful looks, which can more than keep up with the fashion trends that are hot now. Have fun browsing and styling!
The perfect outfit for the winter and the transitional period.
This outfit that Diana wore in 1987, we could wear today and would be fully in trend. Leather is a big topic at the moment – of course, we can also fall back on imitation leather today. But whether it’s real or faux leather, Diana’s look is perfect for everyday wear, comfortable, and looks effortlessly chic at the same time. Comfortable and chic at the same time is for example a wide swinging leather skirt.
The timeless belt trick still works in 2020
Diana already knew in 1983 that a belt makes a very decisive difference at the waist and used the accessory wonder weapon often and skillfully. But we could also take the combination with a midi skirt and blazer completely into the here and now – as long as it’s cold, we’ll just put on a pair of leather boots with a high shaft to go with it.
Lady Di in the perfect spring outfit
Casual elegance in which you can perfectly walk into spring? See above. And this look, with white crop straight jeans, undeniably works as well in 2020 as it did in 1994.
Princess off duty
Even from the back, this outfit clearly shows that Princess Diana could also be completely unroyal and all the more stylish for it. So stylish, in fact, that we can adopt the complete look, including a casual college jacket, as a 2020 trend – including a horseshoe patch, so that we can collect a bit of luck along the way 😉
Speaking of masculine elements…
Wide leg pants with pleats have been back in fashion since last year – no wonder: Lady Di looked absolutely stunning in them back in 1983!
Shirt blouse dresses always go: from 1986 to 2020
Shirt-blouse dresses don’t just work as well in 2020 as they did in 1986 – they also work summer and winter and (especially with a waist belt) simply suit every figure type! This year, we also like to wear the piece open – for example, over jeans and t-shirt combos.
Effortless street style 1989 or 2020?
This picture would easily pass as a current post of a fashion blogger on Instagram – well, but it’s Diana, and it’s 1989… Even in the pumps, which we would have probably passed on to our granny last year, we like to slip, as soon as the weather allows it.
Slouchy boots come then as now with style guarantee
Slouchy boots are totally on-trend! Diana already wore the casual leg-flatterers in 1983 and just by the way: The rest of her tone-in-tone combination, consisting of a wool sweater, midi pleated skirt and waist belt matching the boots, would also pass for a perfect street style in 2020.
Princesses can also be hip and sporty
This look was seen on the It girls of the world last summer – whether on Bella Hadid or Hailey Bieber: the no-goes Ugly Dad sneakers and biker shorts are now back in the permanent fashion repertoire and we celebrate the retro look that Diana made legendary in 1995.
Diana’s power suits we take to heart
Pantsuits are bigger than ever – with good reason because by rocking this garment, we’re showing far more than a sense of style. Diana also played with masculine two-pieces – whether, in pants or skirts, she showed that she’s a force to be reckoned with.
The “Puff Shoulders” on the rise in a big way in 2020.
“Puff Shoulders” were all the rage in the 80s and Lady Di knew how to use the accentuated shoulders cleverly – or rather with special femininity. 2020 the plusterigen shoulders are to be found not only at dresses but above all also at blouses, which we can combine simply to EVERYTHING. For example, why not Lady Di on top and casual jeans on the bottom?
Classic Blue – or “Classic Blue” as we say in 2020.
“Classic Blue” has just been named Pantone Color of the Year 2020. Diana wore the classic – or royal – blue back in April 1987. You can buy a similarly simple V-neck dress with a retro look from Bbonlinedress.
