I'm sure that if Princess Letizia didn't recycle her clothes, plenty people here would criticise her as well... We can't please everyone.
Anyway, she does what is most wise for a person in her position: to use clothes of not so expensive Spanish designers and to recycle them once in a while.

The clothes that Letizia takes are not excessively expensive ... not comparing it with the designs of Valentino, Prada or Chanel ... but probably she comes to more acts that other Princesses and her budget for clothes is minor.
Always she still have ZARA's option :p ... I am sure that in a photography ZARA's jacket might pass for one of Chanel...Only that one would cost 60 € to other one 1000:p

I'm sure it would... And it would also be quite appropriate for all those who don't like her using the same coat twice a year: Zara's pieces hardly survive more than a season...:p

Letizia is recycling her clothes in a way that you directly regonice it from earlier.. I also must say that she is not waiting long to recycle it. You can see that in the post before.. her jacket was been used twice in the same month. I don't have anything against recycling clothes, I think this is really normal, because what would you do with sooooo many clothes you have only were onces????? But I like the way Mary or Maxima are recycling their clothes in a total different way.. Letizia should do this more often

Personally, I don't see anything wrong with Letizia wearing the same jacket within a month. Maybe she really likes the jacket. I know when I really like something I tend to wear it more often. Who knows, at any rate I think that she looks great on both occasions.

I like it that Letizia shows that she is the same as other women and isn't wasting vast amounts of money slavishly following the latest Prada/Gucci/whatever offerings.

She always looks stylish without being 'overdone'. There is a difference between being fashionable and stylish and it is nice to see that she has other things to concentrate on and isn't so image obsessed as other royal women that could be mentioned.

I couldn't agree more, I don't know why people have to compare Princess Letizia with other ones, She is who She is, and doesn't need to put on the latest collection, for being beautiful and catch the attencion, she is the kind of princess that a country really needs, not being interested in clothe, but being concious of what kind of things she has to be in for helping in some way.!

i second that!!! Letizia does not need the brand names clothes and bags to make her look fashionable and elegant. She is as attractive as she is now! and there is no need to compare Letizia with other princess because she has way too many engagements and activities when compare with other princess! (maybe she does not have much time to shop for clothes like other princess....she's busy with Felipe and now with Leonor~!) clothes is not her #1 priority!

I totally agree! I think it's wonderful that Spain has a very down to earth CP who recycle clothes in such a smart and chic way. It shows that she knows what is priority. She's beautiful inside and out, no matter what she wore - personally i thnk if she were to wear a potato sack, she'd still be as beautiful.

Each princess is unique in their own way and shouldn't be compared too much. Each princess belong to a different royal family with different set of political and environmental culture, and i think CP Letizia understands the delicate thread than binds the spanish royal family and it's people and what is called from her!

The Queen Sophia is recycleing her clothes many often, why the Princess can't do it also ? What is the problem ? It's looks a little beat superficial to consider that the main activity of a Queen/Princess is to be on the top of the fashion and changing all reception long her wardrobe...Strange idea, the outside is not the inside. For me the way choosed by Letizia to have jacket with skirt and pants is very good, like that is not quiet repeting and she is not obliged to have a dress by act that she have a lot by year ( more 200..... No comment.... )

I think the Spanish Royal Family in general are quite into recycling their clothes in general, adelaide.
