27 of Princess Diana’s Most Beautiful Spring Outfits

Diana, Princess of Wales’s style was at its best in the spring and summer months. Spring, in particular, was all about sherbet hues and polka dots, which the People’s Princess made her own by way of power suiting and flippy dresses.

Pink was a recurring theme. She wore rosy shades while pregnant at the polo in 1982, in Canada and Australia in 1983, at the Derby in 1987, in Manchester and Nepal in 1993, and for a visit to Howe Barracks in 1995.

Paintbox hues always looked delightful, too. Like the searingly bright shades that were trending at the spring/summer 2022 and autumn/winter 2022 shows, Princess Diana had a penchant for bold color combinations. Lady Di was there first with neon green – worn for a trip to Italy in 1995.

Whether a spectator at a sporting event or greeting well-wishers on state visits, Princess Diana always dressed for the season. Vogue revisits her joyful spring style, below.
