Princess Diana once wore this cheeky jumper and you can now buy it

Princess Diana was known for her gorgeous ballgowns, Sloane Ranger style and of course, that wedding dress. But what has gone unnoticed is her impeccable sweater collection.

You'll probably remember the iconic black sheep jumper, which many say was her subtle (or not so subtle) way of showing how she didn't fit into the royal family.

There is one piece of knitwear she wore in the 80s, while pushing Prince William and Prince Harry on a swing, that was even more tongue in cheeky.

The knitted pink top featured the slogan 'I'm a luxury...' at the front and 'few can afford' at the back. Naturally, as a royal who was obviously very wealthy, it was particularly tickling.

Some might also say it was a little dig at Prince Charles, a way to show him she was too good for him, since we know her marriage was troubled from the beginning.


GYLES & GEORGE WOMEN'S "I'M A LUXURY" SWEATER - <a href="" data-link-merchant=""">£230 at Rowing Blazers
Gyles & George created the original "I'm a Luxury" jumper in the early '80s in a range of colors. One of their sweaters on this design in a soft pink was famously worn by Princess Diana.

Gossip aside, it's a fantastic jumper, and as luck would have it, you can actually buy it. It was reissued last year by New York-based label Rowing Blazers, the same company behind the black sheep jumper. Though it has sold out many times, it's now been re-stocked and could be yours for £280.

The original jumper was by Gyles & George, whose designer said at the time, 'Having met her, I knew she was somebody who had fun and liked to laugh. I think she appreciated the wit of the jumpers; the colours, the look, the style.'

She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
