Celebrities are embracing this fashion trend started by Princess Diana

From Taylor Swift to Matthew McConaughey…

The late Princess Diana, often referred to as the “People’s Princess,” was undeniably a fashion icon.

Her influence on the fashion world extended far beyond her royal duties, and one of her most memorable fashion moments was – obviously – the revenge dress, which she wore in June 1994.

But in late 1994, Princess Diana made headlines when she was photographed wearing a simple yet chic outfit while out and about – a casual look she would recreate numerous times before her untimely death in 1997.

Princess Diana paired bike shorts with a slouchy, oversized jumper, chunky white sneakers, tortoiseshell sunglasses and a designer handbag, creating a look that was both sporty and sophisticated.

A look that would be copied by numerous celebrities well beyond the 90s. In fact, celebs are still stealing Diana’s style in 2023…
