Princess Diana is undoubtedly one of the world’s most talked-about style icons. From her voluminous 1980s wedding dress to the streamlined, minimalist gowns she donned in the early ’90s, almost everything Lady Di ever wore has been analysed and appreciated the world over. Though there is one aspect of Princess Diana’s wardrobe that has typically garnered much less attention: her off-duty outfits.
Between the cycling shorts, oversize sweatshirts, straight-leg jeans and boxy blazers, Princess Diana’s casualwear choices would not look out of place in 2020. In fact, I’d happily wear many of her more casual looks today. The royal’s aesthetic was so timeless it manages to transcend decades, particularly given the fact that bike shorts and everyday athleisure are reigning supreme right now.
With a wardrobe that consisted of quality basics including tailored beige trousers, linen button-down shirts, loafers and roll-necks, many of the items Princess Diana utilised regularly are also likely already living in your existing wardrobe.
So from gym gear to polished weekend looks, keep scrolling for five Princess Diana outfits we’d happily wear today, proving she was the ultimate off-duty muse.
