Prince William and Harry's mother had a strong shoe game…

We all know that the late Princess Diana had the most insane fashion sense and so many of her incredible outfits still resonate with fashionistas today.

Here at HELLO! we regularly look through archives of the blonde royal's past ensembles and we are constantly reminded of how she wore so many current trends before the likes of today's biggest style stars like Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner and Kaia Gerber.

The princess had a variety of pairs including tan and baby blue - and they were the perfect shoes for when she took part in active engagements; much more comfortable than high heels and still super smart, too.

A pair of Tod's will set you back around £200-£300 a pair, but we've rounded up some great high street lookalikes from H&M, Carvela and Aldo, so get scrolling ladies!

Luxury brand Tod's infamous 'D-bag,' was actually named after Diana. The royal was often spotted carrying the tan version of the tote when she was photographed leaving the gym. You might be surprised to discover that her daughter-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, also owns the bag in grey.

In 2019, the brand decided to give the iconic arm candy a makeover. While the original Tod's D Bag is no longer available - the 'D Styling' bag has taken its place.
