Princess Diana was, undoubtedly, the fashion goddess of her time. Her sense of fashion was chic, effortless, and classic. Taking a look back at her wardrobe, we get a glimpse of her aesthetic sensibilities. In her times, Princess Diana’s wardrobe was most scrutinized. Unlike today where paparazzi follows every celebrity, the royal highness was one of the few people to be photographed everywhere she went.




Here’s a tour to the 10 classic looks of the gorgeous royal Princess that can give some of the runway models a run for their money –

1) The Wedding Attire

Valued at 9000 Euros back in 1981, Lady Diana Spencer’s lace wedding dress was complete with a 25-foot train of ivory silk taffeta. The puffed sleeves gown had a vintage appeal, and Lady Diana looked absolutely stunning in the gown. The gown was one of the most guarded secrets in the fashion industry until the day of the royal wedding. The elegant gown was designed by Elizabeth Emanuel. The gown is a reflection of the extravagance of eighties.

2) Maternity Fashion

Here you can see Princess Diana in a simple pink dress. She was 9 months pregnant yet making a fashion statement of her own with this comfortable and breezy attire. It’s a perfect dress for expecting women to feel and look fabulous.

3) Asymmetric Dress

Street Fashion trends and tips for women

Street fashion was, is and will be in vogue. There is perhaps something unlikable about street styling. If you are a die-hard fan of street fashion, then you should definitely dope on these amazing street style items and trends, cherry-picked for the fashionista in you. Here is the comprehensive list-

A single statement earring




A single statement earring: Well, this is nothing new. A number of people have tried this idea before. But the question that arises here is- are you game for this style? Yes, you! Don’t fear dissymmetry; being too symmetrical is a passé now. Flaunt a statement earring in one of the ears and simply rock the world.

Stripe it out

Stripe it out! Vertical stripe pants are a street style lovers’ favourite. Whether you team them up with slouchy tops or well-fitted shirts, you can’ simply go wrong with your looks.

Elegant blazers

Elegant blazers! If you are one of those crazy fashion lovers who want their street style items to radiate that uptown feel too, then you should definitely go for a slightly oversized blazer. With the right type and colour of top to complete the look with, you can make your blazer scream out style.

Evergreen polka dots

Evergreen polka dots: Street styling can never be complete without something polka dotted. Whether it’s a puffed shirt, a shade with thick frames, a bag or a pair of the bottom, if it’s polka dotted, it’s street ready. A pair of high waist jeans, oval framed shades, middle-parted hair and a polka dotted crop jacket are all that you need to look like a bombshell this season. Haven’t tried yet? Come on!




Fanny packs are back

Fanny packs are back! A fanny pack never really went out of fashion. But the varieties that you see today can make all earlier styles feel intimidated. Opt for a style that suits your personality best, and get set to slay.

Those ever cool berets

Those ever cool berets! If you thought berets are outmoded now, you couldn’t be more wrong. Berets are back, and they are back with a bang. With the right colour and the fabric, you are simply going to look out-of-this-world. Yes, don’t forget to flaunt your shaggy hair underneath the cool beret for that much-needed downtown look.

Net bags are the order of the day

Net bags are the order of the day! If you don’t have a net bag, you sure don’t figure in the list of craziest street style lovers. A net bag is a rage these days, and with gaudy colours, they look heavenly. The kind of casual feel net bags ooze out is, in one word, ‘matchless.’

Kitten heel mania

Kitten heel mania! Gone are the days when kitten heels were considered unfashionable, today they are the dream pair of shoes for every street style lover. For that extra dash of oomph, just pick the carmine red pair from the market.

Say yes to cowboy boots

Say ‘yes’ to cowboy boots! Cowboy boots are definitely the new in-thing, and with ankle-length jeans, they simply look bold.

It’s not always uptown elegance that rocks one’s look; sometimes that downtown flavour is also needed to tickle the fashion taste buds. If you think you can carry the latter better, then trying out these items and styles mentioned above is a must.
