Princess Diana's Chanel cardigan just got a high street makeover

Chanel-inspired 1980s oversized cardigans are hot for autumn - and they totally remind us of Diana's iconic fashion wardrobe!

Looks inspired by the 1980s and 1990s are a major fashion trend and royal style icon Princess Diana's famous outfits, from white jeans to pie crust collars, are back and more popular than ever.

That’s why when we spotted this & Other Stories oversized cardigan, with gold buttons and a design that brings to mind classic Chanel, we could instantly imagine it in Diana's royal wardrobe.

Fashion icon Princess Diana loved oversized cardigans - like this stripey look she wore back in the late 1980s

Princess Diana was spotted wearing a similar oversized cardigan in London back in 1989 and it seems the piece is just as timeless as the royal's famous style.

Princess Diana was also a fan of red houndstooth (as is daughter-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge), which is why this fun 1980s-style cardigan in a bold red check caught our eye, too. And even better, it comes in plus size as well.

Influencers are also rocking oversized retro cardigans as sweater dresses, and you can even pair the cardigan with Princess Diana's beloved bike shorts – a royally cool outfit if we've ever seen one.
