Princess Diana has always been a styling model - and continues to inspire fashion today. A very specific dress of hers is now - 40 years later - again on our favorite street style labels such as H&M, Zara, Naked and Co.
It has long been obvious that the 80s are back in fashion. We already love the retro trend and wear it up and down. At that time, Princess Diana was the greatest style role model in the world. What she wore, women all over the world wanted to wear too. Her classic, but still trend-conscious style was approachable and up-to-date then as now. A perfect mix.
The best example of this is this pink dress, which Lady Diana wore in 1982. What almost goes down when you look at the pictures: At this point, she was heavily pregnant with her son William (now 38)!
Diana wears a trendy dress as early as 1982
The cut is casual, the shirt collar gives that certain something and the color are bright - perfect for a stylish everyday outfit. So it's no wonder that the big street style labels have rediscovered the style for themselves and are now coming around the corner with a model that strongly reminds us of this iconic piece by Diana.

H&M, Naked and Zara are now relying on pink midi dresses made of lightweight fabric in an oversized look. Small details give the classic dress a stylish touch, for example puff sleeves at H&M or XXL oversize cuts at naked.
The dress can be used in many ways: for lunch with your girlfriend, for an extensive shopping tour of the city or for a casual dinner with your loved one. During the day we combine mules made of buttery leather or trekking sandals, in the evening we switch to elegant strappy sandals. White sandals, like those worn by Lady Diana, are also a good choice to fully relive the retro feeling.
