The one day of the year that we can channel our inner royal to the most literal extent without raising (that many) eyebrows? Halloween, of course. But this year we’re keeping it retro and are planning on embracing the ever-iconic spirit of Princess Diana with casual dad-sneaks and bike-shorts. Even better? We’re doing it on a budget, with only items available on Amazon. Behold:
The year was 1995 and the look of the era could only be described as tube-sock chic. Some may even argue this iconic Diana outfit inspired many a Yeezy Collection. It definitely inspired Hailey Bieber to recreate the look. In reality, Diana was leaving the Chelsea Harbour Club—a fitness club in London, England. (Explains a lot.) Regardless, it makes for a rather creative Halloween costume, from the oversize sweatshirt and Day-Glo bike shorts, down to the chunky kicks. Friends, where there’s a will, there’s a way…and also an Amazon cart full of Diana-esque dupes.
Hanes Men’s Ecosmart Fleece Sweatshirt
Google “Virgin Atlantic sweatshirt” and you’ll find exact replicas of Lady Di’s fleece…for upwards of $40. We’ll settle on this plain $6 version that we’ll probably (OK, definitely) wear again.
MOPAS Basic Solid Spandex 12-Inch Biker Shorts
Neon bike shorts? Check. And you thought only a royal could rock these babies.
Nike Everyday Cushion Crew Socks
Might as well stock up while you’re at it, right?
BOYATU Chunky Sneakers
Admit it, you had these in your cart anyway. We won’t judge.
TBF Oversized Twill Cotton Tote Bag for Shopping
Make it big; you’ll need somewhere to put all the compliments you’re racking up.
SOJOS Retro Vintage Narrow Cat Eye Sunglasses
Princess Di was way ahead of the tiny sunglasses trend.
