And we’re completely on board
Princess Diana was known as many things during her life: the people’s princess, England’s rose, and of course one of the world’s biggest style icons, going down as one of the best-dressed women in history.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of her tragic death, with people and organisations across the world commemorating her life – everything from her charitable work to her timeless style.
Kensington Palace was one of many to celebrate Princess Diana’s iconic style moments, putting on an exhibition at its Pigott Galleries, displaying outfits from her public appearances since becoming Princess of Wales back in 1981.
It’s hardly surprising therefore that a few fashion trends have been brought back by the commemoration of the Princess, with shoulder pads, oversized hats and double breasted blazers all making a comeback.
There is one Diana look in particular that is going viral with fashion bloggers this month, and it’s not one of her velvet ballgowns or a Catherine Walker working suit. Instead, the look that is taking over Instagram is the black and white polka dot number that Princess Diana wore to The Derby Horse Race in Epsom, Surrey in 1986.
The classic Diana look has been recreated by French fashion designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, in the form of a white and black polka dot blouse – complete with puffy sleeves and gathering at the front.
Fashion bloggers across the globe have been uploading snaps of themselves sporting the new designer blouse – and it could be yours if you’ve got £782 spare.
If it’s good enough for Princess Diana, it’s good enough for us.
