Effortlessly Cool- Biker Shorts

The Revenge Dress
Every woman needs a little black dress, especially to show someone what they’re missing. Diana knew the power that a classic LBD held. She wore a black off- the-shoulder mini dress to a party. The dress had been made for Diana three years prior to her actually making an appearance in it. This was because the princess was nervous because the dress was considered too “daring”.
The princess was no stranger to paparazzi. To protect herself from any unfortunate slip ups and possible close-up images she used a trusted clutch to cover herself. Diana named the bag ‘cleavage bag’. She carried clutches often even if her dress was slip-proof. After all, being the most photographed woman of her time was no easy feat.
Pretty In Pink
Diana proved time after that time that a skirt suit is a perfect choice for any woman and is timeless. From fuchsia to bubble-gum pink, Princess Diana loved wearing all shades of pink but this blush skirt suit is the perfect shade on her. This skirt suit is giving us major Jackie Kennedy vibes. She paired the suit with a matching hat and a brooch which made her outfit stand out even more so.
