Alhough the Duchess of Cambridge loves wearing some key pieces from her royal wardrobe on a regular basis, Princess Diana had a habit of deconstructing and redesigning her outfits completely. Every time she did it, her refreshed item of clothing suited her renewed style perfectly! Let's take a look at some of the best of Lady Di's recycled looks!
The pale blue gown
This long-sleeved gown first saw the world during Diana's official visit to Lisbon, back in 1987. Afterwards, Princess Diana redesigned the dress, changing the neckline and removing the sleeves.
Then, she wore the strapless dress with a heart-shaped neckline for a charity ball in 1989.
The set of jewels
Diana loved jewelry, but reinventing it was her real passion! Back in 1986, the People's Princess wore a headband made from Saudi sapphires. Later, Princess Diana wore her favorite gems in a new look - both around her head and neck.
A voluminous skirt
On the first snap, we see Princess Diana during her official visit to Lisbon. The second picture captures her in Cannes, just a few months after visiting Lisbon, in 1987. She wore the same dress but styled it in a different way.
A two-piece floral look
Diana wasn't afraid of any type of fashion experiment, that's why she broke a two-piece set to combine them to other outfits. In the first picture, she's seen in the original two-piece floral look, which she wore during the 1981 Tennis Championshipsat Wimbledon. In the second picture, Princess Diana is wearing only the skirt, and she still looked beautiful!
It's no secret that Lady Di was a big fan of polka dots. In the first picture, she's at an equestrian event, in 1986, and she is wearing a polka dot two-piece outfit. In the second one, she's got an altered version of the same outfit, sans-peplum, at a polo match just one year down the line.
Red polka dots
Still the topic of polka dots, here's another exclusively stylish look! In the first snap, Diana's seen wearing a Mondi white skirt adorned with always-trendy red polka dots. In the second one, she is wearing the same skirt while receiving flowers from well-wishers in Australia.
The tartan suit
The late princess was in love with this tartan suit, designed by by Caroline Charles. The first time she wore it was at the Braemar Highland Games in Scotland, in 1982. Four years later, she changed the neckline and wore it again.
