It’s no surprise that Princess Diana’s daughters-in-law often channel their iconic style. The late Princess of Wales was undeniably stylish, chic and put together. I mean, we all probably try to copy the late princess on occasion.
While Princess Di occasionally opted for a trendy bubble skirt or bold blue eyeliner, most of her fashion trends featured timeless styles that are still popular today. We recently discovered that both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have followed suit by re-wearing a specific style – the shirt dress.
The look can take on slightly different forms, like Middleton’s summer and winter versions of the look or Markle’s more structured, blazer-inspired tendencies, but the basics of the style still apply.
