One-shoulder tops, off-the-shoulder tops, chokers, corset belts...even tossing a jacket over your outfit and wearing it on your shoulders were all things Princess Diana wore before they were, well, a thing.

This year, 2017, marks 20 years since the tragic death of the style icon. In memory of Lady Di and her legendary wardrobe, we're reminding you of the many times she wore a, now, current trend before it was, in fact, a trend. Her trendsetting fashion perspective has influenced that of Kate Middleton's and, perhaps, even Meghan Markle's.

Without further ado, here at the 10 current fashion trends the Princess of Wales was sporting long before they were dubbed as so.

Before there was the term "Millennial Pink" there was just baby pink, and the style icon wore it a ton.

We attribute the '90s to starting the choker trend, but if you take a deep dive into Princess Diana's style archives, you'll notice she wore them almost every time she wore formal wear!

Also called dungarees, overalls are still a wardrobe staple to this day and, of course, Lady Di was wearing them well before your time.

She was a style icon to say the least.

Happy (almost) birthday, Princess Diana.
