Harry Styles Just Re-Created Princess Diana's Outfit From 1983

Today in unlikely (but amazing) celebrity references, Harry Styles has seemingly taken a nod from Princess Diana's iconic '80s wardrobe. Can you blame him? Spotted in NYC, Styles wore a sheep-adorned Lanvin sweater layered over a striped button-down shirt, along with pinstripe trousers and pink loafers.

With this outfit, is it any wonder why we included Styles on our new Best Dressed Men of 2019 list? As a GQ editor pointed out, Styles's sheep sweater is strikingly reminiscent of one Princess Diana wore. She chose the whimsical sweater for a polo match in June 1983, layering it over a Peter Pan–collar blouse and pairing it with white trousers and red pointy-toe shoes. Her original sweater was from the brand Warm & Wonderful, designed by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne, however, sadly most vintage versions are already sold out online. Scroll down to see a comparison of their stellar outfits.

Associate Director, Fashion News

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of Associate Director of Fashion News (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
