Jill Biden and Queen Letizia Twin in Matching Espadrille Wedges During NATO Summit in Spain

Dr. Jill Biden and Queen Letizia have been spending a lot of time together during Biden’s one-week trip to Spain during the NATO Summit. All that time chatting about their shared initiatives and performing dignitary duties resulted in the two first ladies twinning during their latest public outing.

To join other first spouses on a public outing to the Royal Palace of Granja de San Ildefonso in Segovia on June 29, Biden donned a white floral dress with elbow-length sleeves and a knee-length hem. The dress pattern featured red, purple and yellow flowers with green foliage throughout.

For the same outing, Queen Letizia chose a tan and white polka dot dress, which was cinched at the waist with a coordinating belt. The sleeveless dress featured a mid-calf hem and a lapeled collar, keeping the look conservative.

Notably, the women paired their look with matching espadrille wedges, with Biden wearing a pink pair with a buckled ankle strap and Queen Letizia wearing a white pair with ankle-climbing strap detail.

Known as the quintessential summer heel, espadrille wedges feature a rope heel and, most often, a canvas or fabric upper. They are synonymous with Spain, as the style was first popularized as a working shoe in the 14th century.

Biden and Queen Letizia stayed inside their fashion comfort zones for the outing, as Biden often wears floral dresses in a similar silhouette and Queen Letizia is known to have an affinity for polka dots.

During the visit to the historic palace, the twinning duo posed with several other first spouses who were in town for the NATO Summit, some of who also modeled espadrilles in tribute to the country.
