A Watermelon Power Suit

While pink was Diana’s favorite, there may have been another, politically contrived reason that she wore the color. “As a power-adjacent woman, [it can seem necessary] to play up your femininity,” fashion psychologist Dr. Dawnn Karen tells TZR.Tim Graham Photo Library via Getty Images

A Maternity-Friendly Shirtdress

Over the years, the late princess’ favorite color coded moments of personal joy, steadfastness, and self-growth. One such example was this viral maternity look, a Pepto-Bismol pink dress that she donned while pregnant with Prince Harry.Tim Graham Photo Library via Getty Images

A Pink & Red Outfit

A Printed Gown

She even found subtle ways to keep the color in her rotation. Such was the case at the 1989 premiere of When The Whales Came in London, where she wore a strapless dress of blue florals over a pastel pink base.Tim Graham Photo Library via Getty Images

A Checkered Pink Suit

From a psychological perspective, prints — even the pink-hued variety — can have cheeky undertones or suggest a scattered psyche, Karen says. “[They] may have a lot to express but not be in a position to do so. Patterns allow them to speak [sartorially.]”Tim Graham Photo Library via Getty Images

A Rose-Colored Set

Throughout those same years, Diana pressed on as rumors of marital troubles brewed, possibly wearing her favorite color as a feel-good tactic — an act that Karen refers to as “dopamine dressing.”Tim Graham Photo Library via Getty Images

A Cerise Ski Outfit

A ’60s-Inspired Suit

Remember the Gianni Versace double-breasted, cap-sleeve skirt suit? She wore it in the spring of 1995, and to this day, the look remains a sublime vision.Tim Graham Photo Library via Getty Images

A Pastel Power Suit

In later official appearances, like here in early 1997, day-to-evening suiting and mini dresses in lighter hues mostly replaced her rich-pink gowns.Tim Graham Photo Library via Getty Images
