Diana – Princess Of Style

Even if you don't know anything about royals, couldn't care less about their lives or just can't understands the status they have in certain countries, still many fails to ignore Princess Diana for a number of reasons. One for being that Diana is the most photographed member of the british royal family, if not of the whole world. But what really made Diana so unforgetable, press aside, were the unconditional love towards all kinds of people, her everlasting beauty, sense of style and sadly her dramatic death in the end.

"It's vital that the monarchy keeps in touch with the people, It's what I try and do."

– Princess Diana

After all, It is safe to say that Diana was no ordinary princess in any way. On the contrary, she was a new exciting figure of the very private, unchangeable and old fashioned royal family who didn't show much personality in public. So, when it came to Diana, her approach to what it meant to be a part of the royal family was quite different to what the royal family would have hoped from her. Namenly, Diana was a humanitarian so she wanted to show that I am more than a princess, I am a person with many different sides, I have feelings and a voice. And for this, Diana revolutionized the whole image of being a princess with the help of her charming personality, part in humanitarian work and daring fashion choices.


For me Diana has always seemed like the perfect princess; beautiful, stylish and kind. As a little girl I remember playing with my mother's old princess Diana paper doll that had the most beautiful ruffled dresses, voluminous hair and that Diana smile. It was the toy we would fight over and yet it was just paper but certainly worth safing for all those years. It is funny, how even then not knowing almoust nothing about Diana somehow you just knew she was special. And, like in so many areas of my life, also in getting to know to Diana first I discovered the clothes.

Here are 5 outfits inpired by the iconic style of the late princess Diana:


Power Of A Skirt Suit

One thing Diana learned during her time in the public eye was how to use fashion as a powerful weapon. Therefore, every outfit she wore had a message and a purpose that helped to shape Diana from a shy sweetheart to a confident, grown woman. This growth was accoplished with a series of formal, often quite bold but always fun skirt suit to make Diana appear more of a working woman rather then a princcess on her charity events and fight against humanitarian issues.

"Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you."

– Princess Diana


An Off Duty Legend

Diana was no stranger to an off duty style as she was often photographed during her freetime when she was having fun with her kinds or working out. Even back then Diana was rocking cycling shorts with oversized blazers, loose fitting jeans with a classic white shirt and T-shirts with Nike trainers making her also the princess of streetstyle.

"Only do what your heart tells you."

– Princess Diana


Hat Like A Crown

Diana surely was blessed with the most amazing head of hair and with the most amazing designers to dress it. Therefore, she was often seen with stunning hats that matched the rest of her outfit making Diana ones again the ultimate style inspiration for all women around the world.

"I'd like to be a queen in people's hearts but I don't see myself being queen of this country."

– Princess Diana


Patterns Turn Heads

So, Diana loved those power suit, daring evening dresses, blod hats as well as some very eye catching patterns. From polka dots to flower print to geometrical color bloks, Diana loved to strike with a blod choice. Especially, more traditional patterns such as checks and tartan were something she wore regularly on her royal appearances.

"I don't go by the rule book... I lead from the heart, not the head."

– Princess Diana
