18 best pie-crust-collar blouses & knits to add Princess Diana vibes to your wardrobe

Kate Middleton’s a big fan of a frill collar blouse too

Princess Diana isn’t just our perennial style icon – but Duchess Kate's, too.

You only have to look at Kate's Sezane pie-crust collar blouse expertly layered over a maroon knit in a recent portrait, for the photography book Hold Still, or her and Prince William's outing to a farm in Durham and the adorable video released for their 10th wedding anniversary to see where her fashion inspiration comes from.

Princess Diana and Duchess Kate are both fans of the 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.

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