People often compare Princess Diana’s fashion with Kate Middleton’s. And while it’s not hard to tell that the Duchess of Cambridge admires her mother-in-law when Kate channels Diana, the former will always be in a league of her own. As we approach 20 years without her, Diana is as much of a fashion icon today as she was when she was alive. Watch the video below to see some of her best casual looks.
Even though Di was known for her daring fashion choices — including that infamous revenge dress — she still managed to turn heads in her off-duty outfits. Jeans, button-downs with the sleeves rolled up, comfy sweaters, and fun prints were all features found in her go-to casual looks, and they were just as important as her ballgowns because they provided a refreshing glimpse of what the real Diana was really like. We saw this side of her when she was relaxing at home or playing with her boys. And truth be told, this side of Diana looked pretty darn good.
Her penchant for an oversized blazer, soft T-shirt, durable jeans, and ballet flats has been adopted by many young women today, years after her passing. So even though she’s no longer with us, her fashion is.
