On Tuesday I shared my spin on Princess Diana’s famous black sheep sweater and today I’m sharing my take on her athleisure style! Her famous bike shorts and oversized sweatshirt look has become a huge trend this year and for good reason. It’s the perfect look for running around town in and as we head into fall. Sharing how to achieve Princess Diana style’s for yourself below!
PRINCESS DIANA STYLE: ATHLEISURE
The Oversized Sweatshirt
The key to this Princess Diana look is the oversized sweatshirt. Diana wore a variety of them during her years following her divorce from Prince Charles. From varsity style (as I styled above) to different charities and brands, size up in your coziest sweatshirt for a longer look.
I was against the bike shorts trend for so long until I found this pair from Everlane. Thanks to their seamless style, they’re not too thick and great for layering like Diana did. I also love Aerie’s printed biker shorts for a fun pop of pattern.
For the full 80s trend, wear a taller sock, like these from Hanes, and a more everyday tennis shoe for a comfortable and relaxed look.
One thing Diana did always do is pair her casual pieces with some luxe accessories. I styled with my Chanel bag and oversized sunglasses but also love this bag from Mango (and under $100) for a chic addition.
