Princess Diana isn’t just our perennial style icon – but Kate, Princess of Wales', too. You only have to look at how many times Kate has worn one of Princess Diana's iconic pie-crust blouses to see where her fashion inspiration comes from. (Hint: it's a lot, as you can see from these twinning times.)

pie crust collars

Princess Diana and Princess Kate are both fans of the ruffle collar trend 

Throw it back to the 80s and a pie-crust collar blouse was a mainstay of Princess Diana's wardrobe, often teaming hers with a skirt suit, midi skirt or pinstripe trousers. Case in point: the Caroline Charles outfit she was pictured wearing in 1983 and the Jasper Conran suit she opted for in 1981. Kate even wore a ME+EM pie crust vest on a royal visit to Copenhagen.

It’s not the only time Kate has been influenced by Diana’s imitable style. Polka dot dresses are both big favourite looks of both Princess Kate and Princess Diana, along with initial necklaces, military-esque dresses and nautical knits.
