Our Royal Style Obsession: Queen Letizia of Spain

If one thing is quite certain, Queen Letizia of Spain puts the regal in royal style. Modern elegance pervades her every move, as she effortlessly encapsulates what it means to dress to impress—without a hint of try-hard.

Just lately, she’s spoilt us for choice in six looks over the course of the last 10 days or so.

Zarzuela Palace: In Madrid on Tuesday (October 17), she brought easy sophistication to an approachable Zara floral dress that could have turned rather aging with its granny’s sofa print were it not for her fun bob and dark pumps.

‘Princesa De Asturias’ Awards 2017 – Day 1: This is the very incarnation of what the colour ‘royal blue’ should be. I love how this Felipe Varela plisse dress glides so beautifully with its minimalistic elegance. Yet, it is quickly escalated to high glamour via her sparkling jewels and sleek ponytail at the first day of the awards on Thursday (October 19).

‘Princesa De Asturias’ Awards 2017 – Day 2: The next day, a return to florals saw her wear this Carolina Herrera Resort 2018 frock that was imbued with a girlish spirit while still maintaining its appropriate sense of refinement.

Queen Letizia of Spain In Giorgio Armani & Topshop – UK State Visit

Queen Letizia of Spain proved she is the reigning champion of modern regal style on day two and three of her state visit to the United Kingdom.

On Thursday she turned heads as she attended a lavish banquet at Guildhall looking so very elegant wearing a Giorgio Armani gown which draped beautifully, enhancing her slender silhouette.

Blue is most definitely her colour, choosing to accessorise her look with sapphire jewels along with a shimmering tiara. I much prefer this over her red Felipe Varela gown.

On Friday, the third and final day of their visit, King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain visited the Francis Crick Institute, before saying their goodbyes to their royal hosts at Buckingham Palace.

I was both surprised and delighted to see the Queen wearing a Topshop pleat front ’40s style skirt with an asymmetrial wrap top.

Her maroon pumps threw me off for a second, until I saw the details on her raffia clutch bag which tied things together.

I would say this was a very successful trip for the Queen of Spain.

Queen Letizia of Spain wears Carolina Herrera to Westminster Abbey

King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain visited Westminster Abbey in London earlier today (July 13) alongside Prince Harry.

The trio took part in a ceremony to pay their respects to those lost in war.

The Queen was oozing whimsy and dignified elegance wearing a Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2017 skirt featuring the brand’s signature florals on a prim silhouette, with a Felipe Varela silk blouse.

Like the Duchess, Queen Letizia loves to recycle.

You maybe surprised to discover that this is actually the fifth outing for this look. The most high profile was during her Paris state visit.

Each time she styles her look with a navy clutch and matching Magrit sandals, however, on this occasion the look was perfected with turquoise drop earrings.

Fifth time’s a charm.

Queen Letizia of Spain wears Felipe Varela to the State Banquet at Buckingham Palace

After kicking off her three-day visit in the UK with a trip to the Horse Guards Parade, Queen Letizia of Spain continued the tour on Wednesday (July 12) with afternoon tea at Clarence House followed by a State Banquet at the Palace with the senior members of the Royal family.

State Banquet: With Queen Elizabeth by her side, Queen Letizia was impeccably regal in a beautifully embellished gown from the Spanish designer, Felipe Varela, and a breathtaking Fleur de Lys tiara. She was decorated with the Order of Carlos III and she carried a Magrit ‘Mary’ red satin clutch. Not only do I adore the majestic red colour of the gown and its flattering off-the-shoulder neckline, I love that she paid homage to Spain with the designer.

As of yet, there are no pictures of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge at the event. But, if you look closely, you can see her in the background donning a petal-pink Marchesa gown.

Queen Letizia of Spain Kicks Off Her UK State Visit In Felipe Varela

King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain arrived in London last night for a three-day state visit to the UK.

Today (July 12), the couple kicked off their visit with a trip to Horse Guards Parade.

Queen Letizia was a ray of sunshine in her buttercup yellow tweed-like knee length coat, worn over a bright yellow fitted dress both by Felipe Varela.

The matching bespoke María Nieto headpiece was no doubt given the royal seal of approval from the hat-loving Queen Elizabeth.

I so admire her bold choice for this occasion, as Queen Letizia often goes for understate looks.

The matchy accessories, plus the nude Prada pumps showcased just how considered her style is. Yellow pumps might have been a step too far.

Their quick but busy tour will be packed with private lunch at Buckingham Palace, afternoon tea at Clarence House and a State Banquet at the Palace with senior members of the Royal family.

I’m already excited to see the rest of her outfits, and to see if the Duchess will be at any of those functions.
