5+ Style Details That Made Lady Diana the Legendary Princess She Was

year ago

Princess Diana is perhaps one of the most well-known and beloved princesses in history. She has received praise for a variety of reasons, not simply her appealing personality and all the wonderful actions she has done. Her unique sense of style has also attracted attention. She was incredibly meticulous when it came to her style choices, thus we shared a few fashion secrets she had under her sleeve that few people are aware of.

She made her tiaras naturally blend into her hair.

Princess Diana knew how to dress flawlessly, and was praised by Vogue for her fashion sense and attention to detail. This included blending her tiaras into her hair using a piece of fabric the same color as her hair. Looking closely you can see how this simple technique instantly made her tiaras look effortless and natural.

She used tights to spice up her royal looks.

Instead of choosing tights in neutral colors, Diana often wore tights that matched her outfits, which surely made them look more eye-catching. Diana also loved more risky designs. For example, she sometimes wore tights with thin vertical black lines in the back that ended with little playful ribbons just above her shoes.

She loved wearing pink.

Blush, cotton candy, rose, cerise, crimson — there are so many hues of pink in the color palette. And almost all of them were present in Princess Diana’s wardrobe. Pink was definitely one of her favorite colors, and she wore it both at home and in public in a very skillful and mighty way.

She used clutch bags to cover her cleavage from paparazzi.

If you take a closer look at the photographs of Princess Diana attending events, you’ll notice that she often presses her clutch bags against her chest when getting out of cars. Being one of the most photographed people in the world, the Princess of Wales didn’t want any unflattering photos of her getting into newspapers and magazines. She used little bags to cover her cleavage when she was wearing low-cut dresses, and they even took on the name “cleavage bags.”

Red nail polish.

It seems there’s nothing special about red nail polish, but according to the royal protocol, royalty can wear nail polish only in nude shades. Diana’s red nail polish demonstrated her courage and showed her view of life which she described in one of her interviews by saying, “I don’t go by a rule book, because I lead from the heart, not the head, and albeit that’s got me into trouble in my work, I understand that.”

They say Diana began to wear red nail polish consistently after the news of her separation with Charles became public. This was a signal that she was opposing the system.

She was a real trendsetter when it came to wearing jewelry.

Princess Diana created fashion trends in a variety of ways. For example, the image above shows her wearing the opposing color of clothing and pattern. While many people may dislike it, since the color matching is strange, Diana learned just how to draw attention to herself with her fashion choices.

Diana was fond of contrasting colors. The bold color combinations suited her. The members of the royal family were never afraid of juicy shades — just look at the attire Elizabeth II wore. But Diana was inventive in this approach. After all, contrasting colors attract more attention than just one bright color.
