Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton may be the royals best known for their sartorial choices, but Queen Letizia of Spain has major style chops of her own.
The 46-year-old ex-journalist made a chic statement at the Fundeu BBVA Advisory Board meeting in Madrid today.
Letizia turned heads in a black-and-white striped Hugo Boss midi dress with a high neckline and an A-line skirt. She teamed the frock with shoes by Venezuelan-American designer Carolina Herrera.
The classic black slingback pumps boasted an elevated vamp, a pointed silhouette and a stiletto heel.
The Complutense University of Madrid alumna accessorized with a white Furla clutch and wore her brunette locks down.
When it comes to her wardrobe, Letizia curates a mix of high-end and high-street pieces, often opting for pieces from Spanish brands like Zara and Magrit (her go-to for shoes and other leather goods). Like her British counterpart Kate Middleton, the Spanish royal has developed a reputation for re-wearing pieces, including her most affordable finds.
For an appearance on July 16, Letizia wore the same Carolina Herrera pumps she chose today. She paired the designer heels with a tweed Zara dress that’s on sale on the brand’s website for just $30 (it originally retailed for $90).
