Princess Anne channeled an 80s look as she visited Huddersfield University to address the 92nd Textile Institute World Conference (TIWC).

Princess Anne has been giving some seriously stylish looks lately, from her pale gray coat to her $150k brooch at Ascot, the royal has been looking nothing short of flawless at her recent royal engagements.

And she didn't disappoint on Thursday when she visited Huddersfield University in her capacity as President of the UK Fashion and Textile Association (UKFT). For the engagement, Princess Anne wore a striking green skirt suit which featured large knotted gold buttons on the jacket.

Adding yet another burst of color, Princess Anne teamed the green suit with a colorful striped shirt, which poked out of her collarless jacket, giving an 80s vibe to the look.

Princess Anne, who is known for her love of brooches, wore a stunning gold brooch for the occasion, which featured a green stone in the same shade as her jacket.

The Princess Royal opted for black accessories, wearing black gloves with a matching black handbag and court heels, giving a smart, sophisticated look.

During her visit, Princess Anne delivered a speech at the conference and met final-year students from the University’s Textiles, Fashion, and Costume Design courses, and was shown the 2023 Graduate Showcase.

“We were extremely honored and proud to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to the 92nd Textile Institute World Conference here at the University of Huddersfield,” said Professor Goswami.

“Her interest in our industry, and in particular our commitment to improving its sustainability, is a long-standing one and we were delighted that she attended this conference with this vital issue at its heart.”

Princess Anne also rocked a nostalgic look earlier in the week when she re-wore a jazzy yellow and navy plaid blazer from her 90s wardrobe for an engagement in Scotland.

The Princess was snapped leaving the Palace of Holyroodhouse as she went to open the Royal Hospital for Children and Young People and Department of Clinical Neurosciences.

For this engagement, the Princess looked fabulously summery as she paired a navy dress with a navy and yellow plaid blazer.
