Diana, Princess of Wales’ legacy extends far beyond her style. But there's no denying that the fascination with Lady Diana’s wardrobe is still going strong. From the Instagram account dedicated to “Lady Di’s sassiest post-divorce looks,” to the woollen Lanvin sheep sweater worn by Harry Styles, she still provides ample style inspiration 22 years after her untimely death.
During the '80s, the late royal's aesthetic was all vibrant colors and skirt suits, but Diana ticked off a number of key '90s trends in her time, too. Long before the Kardashian-Jenners, Bella Hadid, or the cast of Love Island tried out the cycling shorts trend, Princess Diana had already mastered it, all the way back in 1995. Her ability to turn an item usually worn for serious exercise into a certifiable trend outside the gym even inspired a Vogue Paris shoot featuring Hailey Bieber mimicking Diana's iconic cycling-shorts-and-university-sweatshirt look.
As the world gets used to our current reality and the UK goes into lockdown, it might be high time to change up your trusty trackies or leggings for a classic Lady Di-approved look perfect for working-from-home: the cycling short. So here's exactly how you can recreate Diana’s signature low-key athleisure look.
