From the polka dot smock she wore leaving the hospital with baby Prince William to her much-talked about ‘Revenge Dress’, Princess Diana was behind some of the most major fashion moments of the last century.
She’s one of the most-talked-about British royals of all time, but while Princess Diana’s personal life may not have been without its controversies, her wardrobe was a resounding success amongst fashion critics and remains one of the most-loved ever since.
Even now, twenty-two years on from her tragic and untimely death, she is one of the most frequently-referenced muses within the fashion industry.
But while we are all so familiar with her most epic gowns, most photographed tour wardrobes and, of course, *that* antique lace wedding dress complete with a 25-foot train of ivory silk taffeta, there is an archive of more under-the-radar, casual looks that we think deserve your attention. Not least because they speak to us on a deeper level right now…
As we tackle day #12237 (-ish?) of self-isolation, we’re noticing patterns in the way in which our friends and colleagues are addressing their quarantine wardrobes. Whether they’re standing strong and opting for full-blown home-office vibes via their regular workwear, or going entirely the other way and embracing prime comfort in pieces that previously only ever saw the inside four walls of a gym, we each know people from all over this sartorial spectrum.
Emerging almost as tribes, there are certain looks adopted by several of us, and – as is the case with all good trends – we’re looking to Princess Diana as the instigator.
Scroll down for some good old fashioned escapism, and find your – and your friends’ – isolation style. Top tip: If there’s one you don’t recognise, chances are it may well be you…
