The Princess Diana Signatures Everyone Will Be Wearing in 2018

Emma Spedding

Princess Diana's style has been examined endlessly, and the obsession with her clothes shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, many of her iconic looks were reworked on the catwalk for Off-White's S/S 18 show at Paris Fashion Week. The show was a tribute to Princess Di with models wearing her signature power shoulders, cycling shorts with blazers, pastel suits and sunglasses worn around their necks.

At Marques Almeida's show, a model wore a red coat with black double-breasted buttons and an exaggerated black lapel, which is almost identical to the coat Princess Diana once wore on an official visit to Birmingham. And Versace had a Princess Di moment too, with Gigi Hadid wearing an off-the-shoulder buttoned tuxedo dress reminiscent of '80s tailoring.

If you look at any Princess Diana style gallery or Instagram account (there are dozens, and yes, you should follow them all), you'll spot many of today's biggest trends again and again—from bright colour-blocking to heritage check blazers to gingham cropped trousers. The Vetements look might seem so modern, but we even found a picture of Diana in a boxy check blazer, sweatshirt and baseball cap that looks like it's the work of Demna Gvasalia.
