15 Lesser-Known Princess Diana Outfits I Never Cared About Till Now

15 Lesser-Known Princess Diana Outfits I Never Cared About Till Now

Some people are absolutely obsessed with the royals, including everything they wear, where they are going, who they are dating, and so on and so forth. I, on the other hand, am not. I mean I get it, trust me. The fact that anyone who is a royal is essentially untouchable stirs up weird feelings of obsession and wonderment as we all desperately try to get an inside look at the lives of the princesses, queens, duchesses, and more. I will admit that a lot of royals do dress well, especially Princess Diana. While that certainly is not news, after searching through archive images of the People’s Princess, I found 15 outfits I personally had never seen before that really struck a chord.

The looks you’re about to see here are each the perfect combination of classic and trendy. Each and every one of the outfits could be worn now and look fresh as a button. Take the below look, for example.

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but it looks like something that Staud would or already has come out with. Everything from the coloring to the buttons to the strong shoulders and tailoring has me wishing I was wearing that dress as we speak. If you like this one, there are 14 other Princess Diana outfits ahead that will inspire you to draw some inspiration from the past as you build out the rest of your summer wardrobe and start prepping for fall. 

This dress reminds me of a hot pink blazer dress I just bought and have been wearing nonstop. It’s a bit shorter than this, but seeing Princess Diana in something similar solidified my purchase. 

I’m pretty sure this is a dress she’s wearing, but many brands today have been churning out similar situations in a matching set form, and now I’m definitely buying one. 

Considering this is always a big winter trend, you better bet your bottom dollar I’m taking inspiration from this look for now.

I love that we are all up in arms about the trending slime color, but Princess Diana did it first and, if I’m being honest, did it better. 

This summer jumpsuit is everything I need in my life and more. It’s breezy, easy to wear, and is clearly so timeless it hurts. 

One-shoulder pieces are trending right now across the board, but most are reaching for those asymmetric swimsuits or tanks. Well, after seeing Princess Diana rock a one-shoulder gown, that will be my inspiration for my next event.

I would have never thought to perfectly match my socks to my skirt, but after seeing this look, I’m about to go on a manhunt to find socks that match all my bottoms. 

It’s the perfect kind of weather right now to wear such a cosy coat. We’d maybe swap in some jeans to go with those all-important dad sneaks.

Have you ever seen a more perfect slip? I thought the answer was no until I tried to find something similar enough to shop out and low and behold, I found something with similarly thick lacy straps below. You’re welcome.

Strong shoulders, primary colors, and unique detailing—all elements that are required for the perfect ’80s suit. This was a uniform Princess Diana relied upon for a while. 

Need a dress for all those end-of-summer fall weddings you’re going to? Well, Princess Diana was the queen of wedding-appropriate frocks, and this one just happens to be my favorite. 

I truly never knew a white coat, white pumps, and a contrasting necklace could look so special, but seeing Diana wear the combo here has me wanting to wear this to important meetings, nice dinners, and beyond.

We’ve seen a lot of designers send out looks for both this season and next that consisted of one colour from head to toe, which makes getting dressed insanely easy. Once again, Princess Diana did it first. 

Chain jewelry is one of my favorite trends right now, and if you look closely, you can see that even Princess Diana was able to incorporate the trend into even the most classic of looks. 

Up next, what to shop from the Christmas sales. This story was originally published on Who What Wear US and has since been updated.
