Princess Diana Predicted This 2019 Trend 30 Years Ago

Erin Fitzpatrick

There's no question that Princess Diana was ahead of her time when it came to fashion. She mastered the athleisure trend that's everywhere right now, and loved classic looks that royals like Meghan Markle are still wearing. That said, we were still slightly surprised to see one unexpected Lady Di trend make a resurgence: veiled hats. 

Exaggerated versions of Princess Diana's go-to veiled hats have been all over the London Fashion Week spring 2019 runways in the past few days, including most prominently at Erdem and Simone Rocha. The former showed versions that tied under the neck, while the latter created romantic, flowy veils with lace trims that floated above pretty dresses. If you want to get in on the royal-approved trend, both Gucci and Eugenia Kim have worthy iterations, while vintage lovers will be obsessed with Chanel's interpretation from the '50s.

Scroll down to see five ways Princess Diana wore vieled hats and see how Erdem and Simone Rocha interpreted the trend for spring 2019.
