There’s no real denying that Princess Diana’s style has endured through the ages. From tackling tough ‘90s trends to becoming the perfect poster girl for Versace, the late Princess’ fashion choices still resonate today. And Diana’s summer holiday style is no exception.

As one of the world’s most photographed women, Diana knew the power of a photo opp and dressed accordingly. This striped dress, worn on holiday with the King and Queen of Spain, speaks volumes of her natural style.

Even on her honeymoon with Prince Charles in Gibraltar in 1981, her outfit is imbued with thought-out sophistication. With Charles, she had to follow the royal fashion protocols, so it wasn’t until their divorce that she was able to find her fashion personality.

Swimsuits! Animal print! Frolicking in the sea! Post-divorce, Diana was able to have a lot more fun with her fashion choices, and her collection of vibrant holiday outfits are just the inspiration we need right now.

Pre-divorce Diana would never have been seen in a two-piece bikini, but look at what a shame that is. The orange tone perfectly highlights her golden tan and the sunglasses are just *chefs kiss*.

This neon number is indicative of the style of the times, but like we’ve seen with other ‘90s trends, they always come back around.

Sometimes minimal outfits have maximum impact. This colour-blocked monochrome swimsuit wouldn’t look out of place on the Amalfi coast in 2021.

Vibrant blues and greens, and a palm-print pattern (aboard a yacht no less). What could say “holiday” better?

Perhaps inspired by her good friend Gianni Versace, Diana started to really lean into animal prints in the ‘90s.

Let it be known that a holiday look is never complete without a set of sunnies and a sarong.
