Princess Diana's Style Has Never Been More Relevant, and These Trends Prove It


Princess Diana’s style has been examined endlessly, and the obsession with her clothes shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, many of her iconic looks were reworked for Off-White‘s S/S 18 collection, which is a tribute to Princess Di with models wearing her signature power shoulders, cycling shorts with blazers, pastel suits and sunglasses worn around their necks.

If you look at any Princess Diana style gallery or Instagram account (there are dozens, and yes, you should follow them all), you’ll spot many of today’s biggest trends again and again—from bright colour-blocking to heritage check blazers to gingham cropped trousers. The Vetements look might seem so modern, but we even found a picture of Diana in a boxy check blazer, sweatshirt and baseball cap that looks like it’s the work of Demna Gvasalia.
