Princess Diana's black sheep sweater was one of the royal's most iconic preppy jumpers that epitomized her Sloane ranger heyday—and now we can relive this style but with a 2022 twist.

Princess Diana's most iconic jumpers were re-released online in 2020 and fans were delighted that they could emulate the Princess of Wales' classic style. But now fans are delighted to find that as well as selling the iconic jumper, the brand also sells a sleeveless vest version.

Sweater vests have been making a comeback over the past few years, they're a sure-fire way to look stylish in a layered outfit and stay warm in the cold mid-winter weather.

This 100% Wool crewneck sweater vest is made with love in Portugal from the highest quality yarns. Each sweater vest takes approximately six hours to make.

The iconic red sweater vest in the color 'Diana Red' is available to buy from Rowing Blazers Warm & Wonderful range.

This thick and luxurious knitted vest retails at £240 but is worth every penny as the brand explains that each item is handmade and therefore totally unique. 

The product description explains, "Each sweater is handmade, therefore the exact placement of these sheep and other details may vary slightly from sweater to sweater!"

Rowing Blazers also spoke about Diana's influence on their clothing line and this design in particular. "Warm & Wonderful was founded by Joanna Osborne and Sally Muir, who created the original sheep sweater in 1979."

"They shot to fame when a young Princess Diana began wearing their iconic design. it's been copied many times, but this is the original, iconic sheep sweater made in partnership with Joanna and Sally to the same specifications as those famously worn by the Princess of Wales."
