Recreating Princess Diana's Iconic Off-Duty Style

Taking a trip down memory lane and revisiting the '90s era— grunge flannels excluded.

When I think of nineties fashion, Doc Martens, baggy overalls and plaid shirts are just some of iconic trends that immediately come to mind. But it wasn't all just grunge and Rock 'n' Roll. There was also a different way of dressing up back then— a more refined manner and one that highlights classic silhouettes as epitomised by the decade's most stylish woman, Princess Diana.

Whilst her Official Royal Engagement wardrobe and red carpet gowns were nothing short of glamourous, her off-duty looks were the ones that deeply inspired me.

Casual yet chic— her weekend style uniform almost always included an oversized blazer, a knitted top, mom jeans, a top handle bag and a pair of sensible courts.

Pulling inspiration from her casual tailored outfit, I recreated Princess Diana's off-duty look by wearing this checked blazer from Reserved and teaming it with my high-waisted straight leg jeans from Pull and Bear. In lieu of a polo neck, I went for this printed tee from OGE Womenswear. Aptly called the '90s Girl, this shirt is the perfect pairing for denim and looks equally amazing with a pleated skirt and cropped leather jacket.

To make the outfit more current, I updated it with the latest accessory trends: a Birkin basket, cat eye sunnies and tear drop earrings.

Happy Sunday, everyone! :)
