Puffed sleeves, cardigan-as-top, structured blazer with cool-girl joggers, Princess Diana was there first. Not only known for her great humanitarian deeds, but Lady Di’s timeless sense of style was also amongst one of the many reasons that made her the people’s Princess. Dive right in to relive 5 of her more iconic day-to-day looks!
Polka Dot O’Clock
Timeless favourites from the royals to runways — as known as ‘polka dots’. Live out your childhood princess dreams in this oh-so-dreamy pink sheer polka dot shirt from Essential Antwarp with an MSGM’s ‘grown-up tutu’. Put on a pearl choker from Chanel to give your look a sense of regal elegance.
A Day at the Polo
Now, we all know the sport Polo isn’t just about the horseback mounted game. It’s also a day where dapper-suited gents and fancy-frocked ladies gather underneath a sponsored marquee, tasting expensive wine and eating bites of exotic canapés. It usually takes place during the day, so while you want to wear your best clothes, you don’t want to overdo it. So why not mix some understated Louis Vuitton and Hermès into your effortlessly fancy monotone outfit? Complete the look with a pair of Kris Van Assche sunnies so no one knows whether you’re eyeing the best bachelors or falling asleep at the sponsors’ speeches!
Running errands kind of day? Or just feeling preppy and reminiscing your school days? Throw on this Lady Di inspired outfit with some Tod’s to instantly level up the easiness and wearability of the look! To complete this preppy and never-fussy style, wear a plain white shirt underneath that bright pink cardigan for an added layer and a token of remembrance from the Uni days. Add a touch of elevated elegance with these new-in Chanel earrings!
Field Trip Business Day
This look is giving us a ‘field-trip-business-day’ vibe, and we think this might be the direct opposite of the ‘A Day at the Polo’ look. In our opinion, this is one of her best ‘graceful yet easy (but badass)’ looks. March into the field with power and style with these Burberry boots and tuck in the bottom of these Loro Piana wide-legged pants into the boots for a militarian silhouette. Complete the look with a Helmut Lang blazer for the business vibe (and extra warmth on the field)!
Easy Office Attire
Changing the colour palette of the Preppy look and adding the right accessories can instantly add a polished edge. For a less colourful option, go ahead and opt for this leopard themed silky shirt with a colour-matching silk necktie to refine this easy yet sophisticated look. And don’t forget to layer the shirt with a white cardigan on top for a more tamed office look. Accessorise with a pair of diamond hoop earrings from Georg Jensen to finish off the look with a hint of luxuriousness.
