Diana was renowned for her exquisite evening gowns and flawlessly styled ensembles for formal royal occasions, but she also had a knack for sublime casual looks. She had a trendsetting fashion sense, which is why, forty years after her time, people are still trying to replicate her style.

Here are some timeless fashion ideas featuring the one and only Diana.

If you want to stand out from the crowd, wear brightly colored dungarees as Diana did. However, if you want to make your all-in-one outfit toned down, use denim dungarees.

High-waisted jeans

High-waisted jeans, sometimes known as “mom jeans,” were a very popular fashion style in the 1980s. Forty years ago, both men and women normally wore high-waisted bottoms. When Diana was out and about in public on a casual basis, she was usually always spotted wearing high-waisted jeans.

The versatility of this basic item is undeniable. Any top will work to give you that cool-casual appearance.
