Are you inspired by the fashion vibe of the Netflix series The Crown? Particularly now that we’re in the Princess Diana years? As Season 5 runs, we’ve curated a list of the top new designer fashions inspired by the Princess Diana and other members of the Royal Family as portrayed on The Crown, including dresses, separates and accessories.
Princess Diana’s fashion style has been rediscovered by a new generation, thanks to The Crown
At long last, Season Five of The Crown on Netflix is here, with dramatic storylines that blur the lines between fact and fiction. While Queen Elizabeth II and their family have had both their highs and lows played out through the decades, one thing has remained the same: some of the Windsors can be seriously stylish.
From Princess Margaret’s standout Dior birthday dress to the Queen’s iconic skirt suits to Diana’s slinky off-the-shoulder “Revenge Dress,” there have been plenty of legendary Royal looks that have made history, and even caused a stir. And we haven’t even gotten to the wedding dresses or the Royal Jewels yet.
Season 5 is the era of Princess Diana’s greatest fashion influence
While other members of the Royal Family have undoubtedly influenced fashion, it was Princess Diana in the later years of her marriage that caught fire as a true style influencer. From the sporty tomboy look of her bike shorts to the “sheep sweater” to the “revenge dress,” she captured the imagination of Brits and people around the world who all wanted to channel her style.
Now, almost 40 years later, a new generation is discovering the Princess Di aesthetic, thanks in part to the debut of Season 5 of The Crown. The Telegraph reports that the #princessdiana hashtag has over 9.5 billion views on TikTok. And a new generation of teenaged “Dianalikes” are showing up in vintage and new looks that are highly reminiscent of her wardrobe.
If you’re looking for some new style inspiration this holiday season and going into 2023, who better to turn to than the OGs of polished dressing: Princess Diana and the Royal Family? Whether headed to a black tie event, off to the countryside or simply out for afternoon tea, channeling the style of the House of Windsor could be a no-regrets move.
Below, 10 new designer fashions inspired by Princess Diana and other members of the Royal Family on The Crown. Stiff upper lip and drama are, of course, optional.
