It is safe to say that after the last season of The Crown on Netflix, viewers everywhere have fallen head over heels for the fictional representation of Princess Diana. She stunned the nation, and elsewhere, in her narrative, story and style. If, like many of us, you were captured by her effortlessly chic casual attire… here is how you can take inspiration from her wardrobe this winter.
1. The sweater vest
The sweater vest was a staple item worn by Emma Corrin, as Diana, over a white blouse and a tartan skirt, but looks great paired with a pair of classic blue jeans. An informal way to style a collared shirt as well as dress warm over the brisk winter days. An oversized grandfather V-neck jumper is more than ‘in’ this winter. Channel your inner vintage in the most stylish manner possible, with a preppy Princess Diana inspired sweater vest.
2. Oversized pastel dungarees
As seen in The Crown, Princess Diana (Emma Corrin) fashions an almost identical pair of pastel yellow dungarees, worn by a young Princess Di in the eighties. A timeless staple for your wardrobe that can be paired with anything from a polo neck to a t-shirt, dressed up or down.
3. Colourful knitwear
A vibrant knitted jumper is an easy way to add a playful pop of colour to your outfit during these long cold winter days. Emma Corrin wears a bright pink knit with multi-coloured stripes and patterns, an effortless way to be different.
4. Checked straight leg trousers
In a more than spectacular scene from season four of The Crown, Emma Corrin as a very young princess is shown rollerblading through Buckingham Palace. A moment that warmed the hearts of the viewers and drew attention to her beyond amazing all pink ensemble, from head to rollerblades, and in particular the checked straight leg trousers.
